It would be interesting to compare with some digital still cameras (RAW), of course, they can only do a few frames a second, but 13.5 stops should be around or more what best DSLRs can squeeze out of their sensors.
Any chance that the guys could also shoot, say EOS 1D mk IV for comparison?
13.5 stops, huh? That's HDR territory. Well done.
13.3 is pretty close to our 13.5.
We are still pushing to get more out of the sensor every day.
Numbers are one useful way of measuring one part of a camera system. It's a small part of an equation, not the answer.
I should note that my tests were very homegrown and tossed together... and it was not using the Arri DR chart. It was the "point at a chart and bracket" test. :) It was also about 5 versions of the firmware and RCX ago.
I just hope that people try their hardest to step back from looking at cameras in terms of "best" and "worst". Every camera is a different tool. There's been a lot of unwarranted badmouthing of different camera systems here lately and it's not called for. I hate clicking the "last page" button and catching the end of a pointless argument. Let's keep the meat off the yardstick and appreciate the pros of all of the great camera systems available to us!

Brook, I agree on the "comparison" point you make. I apologize if I am stuck on the Alexa v Epic place but looking at rental rate guesstimations I'd say Alexa needs 15 stops to make me consider it atm. I am stoked with all other measurable and not so much aspects of M-X.
I guessed 13.75 when it is all said and done, looks like I am going to get my wish! :D
Even more if scaled to 2K, right?
I'm looking forward to seeing the results- thanks for running the tests.
Sooooooo...... if the MX Sensor is going to deliver around 13.5 stops,
then what is the new Dynamic Range goal for the Monstro Sensor?
Wow. 13.5 stops... Very, very cool. Is it safe to say that the S35 Scarlet will have the same DR as the Epic?
Congrats on the working prototype!
