    I believe that the detectors in digital cameras have a wider dynamic range
    than does typical slide film. Not everyone agrees with me. Both have wider
    dynamic ranges than do prints.

    I think I read somewhere that slide was like ~3 stops latitude, and regular
    print ~5, and B/W was like ~7. I had heard somebody say that digital [good
    sensors] were like 5.5 - 6 approximately. Not sure if it's 100% accurate,
    just what I heard.

    Not really, you just increase or decrease the film speed on a shot by shot
    basis.
    I have shot at 100 iso outside and then gone inside and reset the camera to
    1600 iso and shot some more, the difference is the signal to noise ratio (I
    may be corrected here) the faster you set the FILM?? speed the less quality
    the result, also the less contrast I think.

    Changing the effective film speed in a digicam does not change how the image
    is recorded by the sensor. It changes the amplification of the readout.
    There is less signal from the sensor, and pretty much about the same noise.
    So the amplified image has more noise relative to the signal, and in the
    final mage that looks like more grain.
