The A700 ISO 3200 Challenge
Apr 13, 2008

So many conflicting views about this camera: image quality should be as good as the D300, but it isn't. In some reviews, the files look terrible. The problem, lies in the post-production: the A700 needs careful handling to get the best from it, and the JPEGs are simply awful.

So the challenge is to take one A700 RAW file at ISO3200 and deliver the best file you can from it. No Photoshop USM or post production is allowed. Files must be delivered straight from the RAW processor. One stage noise reduction is permitted.

You don't need an A700 to take part . . . pick up your ISO 3200 RAW file from here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/AA700/AA700RAW.HTM and post your results below. Here's mine for starters: the RAW file is on the left; the out-of-camera JPEG on the right.
