You don't buy a new car every month.

You don't frequently install or update anything in your car either (I cannot think of any other way in which it can break every few months). I am sick of the comparison between the car and desktop-computer industries.

Comment Re:just one f-stop? try 10-11 (Score 1) 107

I wouldn't say that most cameras have a "real" dynamic range of 10 f-stops (the upper and lower stops are usualy just a result of interpolation and thus cannot really be used in practice). Only top-notch ones have 10-11 f-stops (a average DSLR camera does not have more than 6 usable stops).

However, your point is clear, definitely much more than one.

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
