Regarding the non-zero values after the presumibly blown highlights peak, did you find them?After
the blowing there is nothing. Thie question is, what is interpreted as blowing. The histogram I posted does show a thin red and blue line at the very end, but it is barely visible. That is the clipping point; I guess this is at the same location as in your histogram (it has to be, does not it?).
I uploaded a layered TIFF showing the relevant area (the window) with some screen captures: http://www.panopeeper.com/Demo/Guillermo_4...t_analysis1.TIF
The first layer is in composite color view (averaged colors), showing only from 12000 to 14000. This yields very high contrast, but the colors are wrong, of course, because of the clipping. The clipped pixels are with 0 in the next layer, that shows, which pixels are affected by clipping. However, this is not exact because of the mixing of colors (a pixel appears black only if all three components clipped).
As you can see, *all* pixels of the upper part of the window are clipped, i.e. there is no detail to get there.
The third layer shows the same data but in channel view, i.e. each displayed pixel is either red or green or blue; the color is very bad, but this is much sharper than the composite color view.
The fourth layer is channel view but the clipped pixels are black. This shows exactly, where clipping occured.
The following four images are in exposure view. Every displayed pixel is either red or black, or green or black, or blue or black, depending on which pixel it is in the CFA, and if the pixel value is within the selected range (or outside the range, if chosen so). Note, that the intensity of the pixel is fix in this mode, it does not reflect the pixel value.
The first of these shows those pixels, which are outside of 13823 (the limiting value is always both inside AND outside). If your monitor has small pixels, then the colors melt together, but if you magnify it, you see the individual pixels in their own color (I did not want to multiply the number of layers by three to show each color on its own).
The next layer shows the pixels from 13824. See the pixel stats: the difference is not much, only a few pixels are with exactly 13823.
The next layer is with 13825. There are only red pixels there, i.e. 13824 was the clipping point for green and blue, but the red did not clip yet. However, the following layer shows, that there is nothing with 13826, i.e. the difference in the clipping points is only one level (there are other sensors with much larger differences).
I am going to give your program a try
You can download it from http://www.cryptobola.com/Photobola/Rawnalyze.htm
I started implementing the native raw file support a few days ago, only DNG was supported before. The list of supported native raws is in Rawnalyze.htm (your camera is supported).
The manual is several months old, many features are not even mentioned. I will create a new one in one-two weeks.
