Dynamic range

The ratio of the maximum signal relative to the minimum measurable signal often measured in decibels or dBs. The largest possible signal is directly proportional to the full well capacity of the pixel. The lowest signal is the noise level when the sensor is not exposed to any light, also called the noise floor. Practically, cameras with a large dynamic range are able to capture shadow detail and highlight detail at the same time. Dynamic range should not be confused with tonal range.
