when will these myths stop about high resolution and high ISO?
Feb 8, 2012

You can read it in the Canon forum and even here about D800 high resolution and probably bad high ISO characteristics = old myths

how good is the high iso in d8000 compared to d700
First of all, we discuss two different sensors with different characteristics

D800 36MP and IF they have used IMX071 as a base =D7000sensor =correct pixel size for 36MPFX) is D800 almost 0.5Ev better than the D700 at high ISO. At least 2EV better on bass-ISO.

To compare the image quality should be made to the images of the same size whether it be on screen or in print. Ordinarily is normalized by the camera with higher MP reduced in size but also on the smaller pixel dense camera images enlarged to the pixel dense camera's size, the result is the same: a camera with more MP will provide better image quality in the finished image regardless of image size.

Many people make the mistake of comparing images in 100% excision without normalization or no editing. Interestingly, rather than how the image quality fare in the finished image after normalization and image processing. A camera with more MP may have higher noise but also better resolution that level of detail. The end result can then be expected to be the camera with more MP can withstand more noise reduction and sharpening, and therefore - even though the files are more noisy from the start - will give a better finished picture
