Dynamic range refers to the range between what will show up as pure white and as pure black in your photograph, and is often measured in stops of light. Most digital cameras, even cell phones, have a dynamic range of at least 7 stops. If you’ve ever wondered what one of the advantages of getting a more expensive camera with a better sensor is, it’s that you often get a larger dynamic range. DSLRs often have dynamic ranges up to 14 stops, with some newer sensors having a range of 20 or more stops.
