High ISO of 5D3 vs D600 (no test images)
Sep 14, 2012

Can people stop saying 5D3 has 2 stops of high iso over D600? It doesnt.

So far D600 looks to be quite a bit better than d700, I think it will turn out to be in the same league as D800 a little behind D4. 5D3 has no high iso advantage over D800, and it will not have high iso advantage over D600.

5D3 has 2 stops more hardware amplification. that is true, but so far from what we have seen iso 12800 and iso 25600 provide no real advantage over software gain. unless you are a jpeg shooter and want OOC jepg at iso 51200 and 102400 (which D800 and D600 do not have), there is no benefit in having these extra hardware iso options whatsoever. a 4 stop under exposed iso 6400 RAW gives you the same IQ as a 2 stop underexposed iso 25600, except it has 2 more stops DR in the highlight end.
