Hi Oliver,
I looked in the Digilux 2 manual and it doesn't appear to explain anything
of this nature.

Merely directions of "how to set."


Thanks, Ted. I subsequently sent a request for detailed technical
information on the grayscale processing in the D2 to Leica. Dave Elwell's
reply follows:

"Mr. Bryk
 I'm sorry to say but Germany does not release how it is done in the Digilux
2. You will have to search the internet for the basic process. This link  has some basic information. Also search for
signal processing in digital cameras..
