To make it easier to characterize values that change so broadly, it’s common to make use of a logarithmic scale to plot the luminance. The scanline beneath represents the log base 10 of the luminance, so going from 0.1 to 1 is the same distance as going from one hundred to one thousand, for example. I’ve been a tech journalist for more years than I’m willing to admit. My specialties at CR are TVs, streaming media, audio, and TV and broadband companies. In my spare time I construct and play guitars and bass, journey motorcycles, and like to sail—hobbies I’ve not yet discovered how to safely combine.
