Difference between D800 and 5dmk3 in the shadows
May 3, 2013

I use a variety of Canon cameras but have since  a year also used the Nikon d800 in my work
Canon has not kept pace with sensor development which can be seen here in terms of dynamic range and detail of the lowest levels, D800 is now my main tool for the photo shoots I perform, ie medical photos

this is the DR from the two cameras 5dmk3 and d800 from high light and down in levels towards shadows, the both cameras identically exposed time  f-stop and at base iso

we can be proud that Nikons has the co work with Sony and also Toshiba, Aptina Renesas for the different cameras we can use compare to Canon and their own sensor design
