Downsized D800 Crops vs. D4 @ 25,600
Mar 20, 2012

I went ahead and did the work, as I'm sure many of you did, of downloading some of the raw files. After converting to DNG, I imported to Lightroom and kept the basic Detail settings in tact. I don't know about you, but I remove Chroma noise on import and that's how I want these cameras compared. D800 was downsized in CS5 using Bicubic Smoother to D4's 16 megapixels.

To my eyes, the D4 has a tiny bit less noise but also a tiny bit less detail. These are all at ISO 25,600, 1:1 screenshots.
