tomKphoto: Auto ISO is great for wedding work, but Canon's version still needs some work although the implementation on the 60D is better than on the earlier 7D. Hoping the 7D2 and 5D2 nail it perfectly.
1. Allow the full range of ISO settings to be used, with a user defined highest amount
2. In Av mode, pick 1 stop faster (than currently employed) shutter speed - preventing motion blur.
3. In Av mode, pick 1 stop slower when IS is employed.
They're close - 80% there
Well it's actually already implemented, it's called exposure compensation. 1. Use iso max setting to limit how high the auto is allowed to be selected. 2. Use exp comp -1, this will increase shutter speed 1stop. 3. Use exp comp +1, this will decrease shutter speed 1stop. So the way I see it, they're 100% there.
Arn: In RAW ISO 1600 the 650D appears much softer than 600D and 550D but that doesn't seem to be the case in RAW ISO 800 and 3200 or JPG results. Perhaps there's some settings glitch in that RAW ISO 1600 pic.
Ya, the glitch is called misfocus.
Koulang: Dpreview please re-shot RAW file at ISO 1600. It looks out of focus here. If you compare the 650D between RAW and JPG at ISO 1600, you will see the JPG has more details and cleaner image.
Yes, I agree, I have a hard time believing the 650D is not at least the same (IQ). I think they should reshoot the whole thing and take a bit more care consideringing how these cameras are judged by these shot comparisons.
Yes, I agree.
Please reshoot the 1600 ISO shot, it's out of focus.
Eric Glam: Studio shot at ISO 1600 RAW seems a bit out-of-focus. DPReview, please re-shoot.
Yes, I agree. Infact, it seams to me something is a bit odd about these test shots. I've seen much better on other review sites and given the significance that is placed on them, DPReview needs to go back and reshoot the set just to make sure everything was set correct and in focus (ie. NR low, standard or neutral style, whatever was set on the 600D etc.)
