Techradar : A99 JPG quality beats the RX1 in dynamic range and noise handling
Dec 26, 2012

The latest RX1 test made by Techradar (Click here) shows an unexpected result. The JPG quality of the RX1 is worse than the one delivered by the A99. While RAW files for Dynamic Range and Noise are very similar (with the A99 having the edge on mid ISO). I am surprised to see that the JPG quality shows that huge(!) difference. I actually was expecting a better result!


JPEG results for dynamic range show that the Sony RX1 is weaker than the other cameras, starting off below the Sony Alpha a99 and Nikon D800 but slightly above the Canon EOS 5D Mark III at ISO 50, before falling into last place at ISO 100 and above. The gap is only slight in the low to mid-range, but plummets sharply at ISO 3200 and above.
