What is the latitude of EX1?

Has anyone done any measuring on that? Compared to RedOne?

I think there's about 9+ stops.

But it's really hard to measure latitude on these cameras, because things get murky way down there in the shadows, and there may be measurable latitude that you don't actually want to use.

I think the RED claims 11+ stops.

yes. for example the hv20 has about a stop more shadow latitude in cinemamode, but the extra shadow detail is pretty much b&w and tends to look odd against midtones that are color-rich. it's not useable in a lot of cases.

Sorry guys. Hate to be the nay-sayer here but... If anyone really, truly believes they are getting more than 6 stops of USEABLE latitude out of the EX they are definitely in the wishful thinking mode. If anyone can post REAL WORLD stills from this camera proving a 10-11 stop latitude please do so and I will be the first to eat my words.
