I know, not directly ACES related, but I hope that allright, I have a question regarding photographing HDRi images with a DSLR using exposure bracketing.
The general Wisdom seems to be to do 2 Stop increments when bracketing, ideally from a full white to a full black image.
Now to me this would only make sense if the camera used can only capture 2 stops of Dynamic range, if my camera can capture 10 stops of DR, would it not be perfectly sufficiant to bracket in 10 stop increments?
As I understand modern cameras are pretty linear in their response curve, certainly more than 2 stops?
I want to do this test tomorrow with my Nikon Z6 and test some scenarios. Maybe its just some left over from very non linear sensors that made it hard to calculate the scene radiance with too little steps in exposure or it helps the solver to find similar things across shots?
