In that case what could that mean for the future of the International anti-banding and read out noise Association?

Change the name to International anti-read out noise association?

Talk about low expectations

ii) Nothing has been lost in terms of IQ for the dual pixel AF function.

From some images and tests (shadow recovery) I had hoped for better low ISO performance.

SeemsĀ that the banding problemĀ have pretty much been solved, which improves the low ISO performance in practice.

Would be great if we could have a thorough discussion about DxOMark Methods
In reply to elfroggio, Aug 30, 2013

Many of us, including me, don't have a very good understanding of DxOMark methods of analyses.  It would help a lot if we did so we would all know what we are concerned about.  I am in the process of doing that but it will take time.

The 70d is getting dragged through the coals on the non-Canon forums for it's score. The m43 guys are snickering.

I wouldn't buy a camera or not based on technical scores as much as what it's functions can do for me, so I am still excited about this camera.

Realistically, until and unless Canon completely changes its sensor architecture, that won't happen. There are sound commercial reasons why they can't, and Canon users seem able to live with it. If they can't, they do what I did, buy a Nikon camera. Remember also that as a package, the 70D makes a compelling offer, and is strong in areas where extended DR is less of an issue (action photography, birding, etc). The lack of banding, if confirmed, will make it much easier to process than any previous Canon - it's very very hard to acceptably get rid of banding, it just changes to nasty coloured streaks, but the same amount of random noise is easily dealt with.

I think he will have to find something else to whine about. There is always resolution, I guess or perhaps the lack of that newfangled switchable AIF Nikon just patented.

Me dishonest ? the link is just a click under your mouse, All the lecture may be a bit long and complexe but it's very instructive.

http://www.astrosurf.com/buil/d70v10d/eval.htm

if you need quotes it concludes : "the RAW format is not really raw (with noise reduction mode either ON or OFF)."

Enjoy your reading.

Anyone who uses DxO scores as proof...
In reply to sdribetahi, 11 months ago

that one camera is better than another deserves to be laughed at.  M4/3 and non-Canon guys aren't snickering, fools are snickering....be careful how you lump people together.  Most people don't even know what those scores mean, and when people use them as proof of anything but then require an explanation of what they're looking at it become clear very fast they'll scour the internet to justify their own existence rather than attempting to be objective.
