A reminder of why I still shoot with my SD14 vs D90
Aug 2, 2011

Did a big shoot with my kids and their cousins this weekend.

Used both of my cameras. I posted this over on LuLa to drive home the point on a discussion about the SD1 that gone into technobabble.

My SD14 workflow vs a D90 jpg(I have a hard time doing better than the camera playing with the raw file) Resized by Smugmug to X3 to make things "fair".

I think the realism of the SD14 shot proves my point compared to the very good but inferior results of the D90 IMHO.
SD14 with my 18-200DCOS.

D90 with 35mmDX

The Nikon shot is very good but I must admit if I had never had heard of the X3 sensor and Sigma I would be blissfully happy like most C&N shooters are. However these two shots are a great testimonial to what most of the forum members here already know. Too bad I am not making this comparison with a new SD1 grrrr.

A bad day of train chasing is better than a good day at work.
