For this reason, 10-bit log is the standard for recording digital images back to film. Some color publishing applications use a 16-bit system for even more control and detail. The cost of the additional bits is memory and disk space, bandwidth and processing time. The consequence of too few bits can be artifacts, or flaws in the image introduced by image processing. Artifacts include banding, where a smooth gradient is interrupted by artificial lines, and quantization, where a region of an image is distorted.

A logarithmic representation of light values is also typically used when scanning film material for digital intermediate or visual-effects work. And certain current digital-production cameras, such as the Arri Alexa and Sony F65, both provide log curves as a choice for image acquisition.
