Captured image histogram

Confidence that a capture has been made of maximal quality is often hard to come by. A key factor is a quality histogram or the taken shot.

  • Histogram should be large size for seeing small issues.
  • Must support wide gamut color space for RGB histogram (AdobeRGB does not qualify).
  • Zooming in with RGB histogram should show histogram for zoomed area only (critical to not blowing out small but important areas)
  • True raw histogram, critical for assessing actual raw capture dynamic range remaining (or blowout) independent of color space and JPEG processing settings.
  • Auditory feedback varying in some manner to indicate blowout or pinning blacks.
