I'm not all that technically-minded, so I'm afraid a lot of the above was way over my head..... however, a question.... would it be possible, in the future, for a sensor's 'photo-sites' to, individually, amplify or reduce the amount of photons recorded? (a bit like each photo-site being able to say, "That's enough" or "A little more, please").
, reduce high-contrast in shots and increase contrast in dull, flat lighting at the moment of exposure, and cut out the chance of completely burnt out highlights or pure black shadows.
(If you shoot Jpegs you can, of course, adjust the Contrast setting, but this is just a form of post-processing - if you're shooting Raw then the true 'original' would hold the information on its own, without having the camera's processor turn it into a Jpeg and make Contrast changes).
Just a thought - perhaps it could be called the 'Ansel Adams Filter'.
