Click on the camera model in list display the Photon Transfer Curve. Zooming is enabled. Use the resize box to resize the chart and list.
To share a chart consider getting a link with the link button rather than or in addition to simply using a screenshot.

These Photon Transfer Curves (PTCs) are made from observed data therefore values may not agree with other charts.
In particular read noise values may be lower due to black level clipping.
Colored dots are mostly sampled from the Photographic Dynamic Range (PDR) measurements and the black dot is the PDR location.
Generally the PTC (the black curve) will follow the colored dots and pass through the black PDR dot.
The gray lines mark read noise, photon noise, and Photo-Response Non-uniformity (PRNU) respectively.
Data in tabular form follows (sortable by clicking on column headers) :
