Does anyone know which common file format stores the most grayscale information - i.e., the widest dynamic range (not necessarily the most colors, I think)? Chung Lee's recent Imacon image and his comments on the dynamic range prompts this. I got to wondering how long it would be until we have to switch formats to accomodate newer, better sensors.

Thanks -

(FWIW - My two sons)
