Chronos User Discussion / 12 -> 8 bit conversion?
« on: March 22, 2021, 08:21:15 AM »
I just got the HD 2.1 camera few months ago and it seems like a very nice camera for the money!

A small question. When saving videos in H.264 format the output is 8-bits. According to the manual sensor is 12 bits. How is the conversion done? The whole 10^12 range is resampled for the 8-bit. I have been using a camera from another manufacturer where you can select lower, middle or upper range. Having a histogram with min-max limits would be really nice for adjusting the contrast. Or is everybody just using DNGs.
