If you wonder why you can't output pure white

I was scratching my head for a long time not understanding why the output from a constant color ramp with only pure black and white would output grey areas instead of white:

Turns out the color management settings have been significantly altered compared to a default blend file, main culprit being the exposure set to -3.

    Yeah if you want to see the real values you would have to change the view transform to Raw. That way you don't have any of the monitor correction wizardry and just see the real values.
