Speaking of photographyblog

Speaking of photographyblog samples and crazy histograms, I've tested my libraw code on samples from other cameras and I haven't seen anything crazier than a Sony RX100 V's histogram. It's coded on 14-bits (actually perhaps more since it says the maximum is 17220), but at the lower end it only needs 12-bits, and it goes down in steps as you go up in values! So there's a 11-bit section, then 10-bit, then 9-bit in the highlights! It probably helps with the compression? Anyway I thought you'd be interested to know about this in case you didn't already.
