comment Do cameras assume a particular size of print when reporting DPI?
@MichaelClark - I may check with exiftool at some point, but it doesn't change the key point of the answer that the selection of the 300ppi value is entirely arbitrary.

comment What software would appropriate for tonemapping a 5 gigapixel image?
You could probably dump the 0ev and just use the +/- 1.3ev which would save a lot of IO and improve processing time.

I dunno... It's pretty noisy! :)

comment Why do some of my RAW files get “broken”, with narrow solid black horizontal lines?
But the point is that even with that being the case the failure mode still doesn't support the cause in this answer, hence the downvote. The more likely scenario is the one linked by AJ but as the numerous requests for clarification have gone unanswered any answer would be guesswork.

My family ran an electronics repair business doing component level repairs to surface mount gear and pro AV kit when I was a kid, I've been around plenty of dead/poorly IC's to know that the failure of the sensor or a line wouldn't be nearly as inconsistent. Like everyone else I was waiting on more clarification from the OP, this question should be closed really

downvoted - errors like that would be consistently placed. These errors are not.

@MichaelClark - I believe not, certainly not if they're using the FIAP definition which is basically a slideshow set to music. AudioVisuals are quite possibly one of the most mindnumbing artforms I have had the displeasure to encounter.

comment Can the Nik Collection be used without Photoshop or Lightroom?
@MichaelClark - That's a better workflow than the gimp option, I think both our answers agree that while you can use the plugins outside of Ps/Lr, it's not a great idea.

@szulat - thanks for that, I have to say I never really cared for gimp that much so I never really looked at their versioning. The fact remains that at the moment to use the Nik plugins with anything other than photoshop/lightroom is still hobbling a tool that is built to work with non-destructive editing, 16-bit colour support and a bunch of other features... looking at Michael's answer I just can't think of a good reason why anyone would want to work in such a hostile software environment/ui.

comment Does MP influence ISO?
It's also worth noting that it's not just pixel size, but that improvements in sensor design / manufacture also come into play - newer sensors are more likely to outperform older ones even with a larger pixel.

Emphasized that it's really not a good idea.
