Explaining image sensors using beer

Beer glass analogies are used to explain full well, signal to noise, dynamic range, etc. in the linked PDF presentation on Advanced Camera and Image Sensor technology.

Beer may not exhibit many of the stranger behaviours of photons and electrons, but it's still fun to play with. Drink enough and you may think
