This is my first post on the Luminous Landscape forum, and I have a question regarding the bit size of images from digital cameras. I have been scanning negatives and tranparecies for some time, and I am considering purchasing a digital camera.
Are the images downloaded from a digital camera 8 bit, or 16 bit? Does it depend on the resolution of the camera or can one set the bit size directly on the camera?
I know that when scanning, the bit size can be chosen on the scanner, and then, when imported into PS, one can work on the 16 bit image, or choose to convert to 8 bit when necessary. How does it work with digital camera files?
