RE: i/ Luma coefficients for DTV
Right, on a 640 x 480 display, you can see only about 300k colors at a
time. Likewise, even on 1920 x 1080p, you could only see about 2 million
colors at a time.
But you really do need at least the 16.8 million colors of 24 bit per
pixel RGB (8 bits per color) to represent everything you might want to
shoot in the real world.
Consider how many words there are in the Oxford English Dictionary. I
think it's in the millions. Would you really want to use all of them on
every page you write? Yet they need to be there for those who do use
them. It's kinda the same idea.
