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.
|histogram too small for accurate evaluation, no zoom histogram||best of breed but lacks true raw histogram||no zoom histogram||no zoom histogram||no zoom histogram||TBD|
|All brands lack a true raw histogram, all lack auditory feedback, all lack wide gamut support.|
