the same as dynamic range. It isn't. It just describes how finely the
camera can divide the dynamic range. So, you could have a two stop
dynamic range and a 16 bit color depth -- not that it would be much use.
You could have a 12 stop dynamic range and only a 2 bit color depth.
That might be good for some things but not photography. HOWEVER, if you
have a higher dynamic range you want a greater bit depth or you will end
up with more banding issues than with current cameras. So there is a
loose connection in that way.
Apparently the 1Ds Mark3 has that greater range. I got this from a great
1DsMk3 "rumor site" I've been following for a while,
