Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 review – Dynamic range

The results of our dynamic range test were particularly impressive, showing that the RX10 has a dynamic range of 12.37EV. This is extremely good for a sensor of this size, no doubt helped by its back-illuminated construction.

In use, when combined with the evaluative metering, I found I did get the occasional burnt-out highlight area, as you would expect from a camera with a smaller sensor. However, the raw files are very impressive, and a lot of detail can be recovered that looks completely lost in the corresponding JPEG files.
