You can save a lot of nerves and energy by not trying to show him another point of view as he likes to stick in his errors. But sometimes it's good to have a stubborn mind around.
Now, BC, you can report my post, run again to Admin Klaus and complain and wail around. It's amazing how a person with considerable knowledge decides to refuse other insights and ignores the obvious fact that there is more contrast in this world than a Canon sensor can master.
:-) :-) Thank you JJ_SO, yes, I have already noticed who I'm dealing with. Einstein has one famous quote: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." I like this quote :-).

2. Alternative facts, much? The human eye only sees 6.5 stops at any one time. That is a fact. Yes, the human eye will adjust when you look from dark to light, and vice vera. Depending on how much the difference is, the adjustment can take upto 30 minutes. There is a reason why the standard tonal curves of cameras give us "natural" looking images (7-8 stops of DR) and why colour positive slide film was so popular (5-6 stops of DR).
All the time I have the feeling you project a lot.
1) :-) LoL, just ranting again. It is exactly the same level of quality argument as me saying "Brightcolors is a known pedophile". Tell me, why do you think it is a fad? What proof do you have for your assertion?
I will be pleased to share my beloved photographs with every photographer but certainly not with you because what you are actually seeking is just an ammunition for another ranting. Nothing else.
2) Tell me, what is your source information? How about some critical thinking in your google search results? It was just the first hit which seemed to confirm your idea, wasn't it? ;-) Please search and read again in depth and you will see that what really counts is so called dynamic range of an eye which is indeed about 20 stops. BTW, the eye is a contrast detector, not an absolute detector like the sensor in a digital camera (if it helps).
