"with the same shutter speed and f-number, a larger sensor will be exposed to more light than a smaller one and more light allows better image quality". Surely this is incorrect? In terms of TOTAL light, it might be true, as the total sensor size is larger in FX, but in terms of light per square inch, they both gather the same amount of light. I thought the better IQ for FX came because of the pixel density was lower on FX?
wow nicely done. Congrats
Did you up the number of entries allowed? "The total entry limit is now set at 35, might slightly increase the limit if this challenge is well received.". 35 ->125Not exactly "slightly" is it?
Like it very much and like the processing as well. well done!
was someone screaming for 50Mp?
I want to marry her!
Russell Fulks: Having just shot a tennis tournament, I am extremely grateful for the high-ISO performance of my full frame camera. Even in a pro tournament the lighting at night required shooting at ISO 3200+ with f2.8 glass. If I tried that on even the best of the "crop" sensors I would have been shooting at higher ISO to achieve the same exposure and would have had significantly more noise. This is true for anyone who has kids playing indoor sports or night sports, not just the pros. If you want to take clean stop-action pictures you need to be able to shoot at "reasonable" ISO's and high shutter speeds with fast glass.
Sensor size has nothing to do with actual DOF. Its all about aperture and distance to subject. Lens and framing determine DOF, not sensor size.
I have to take my hat off to Nikon & Canon for building up a very successful FX marketing campaign. A lot of people have disposable income that they would gladly give away in the hopes of having “the best” IQ possible. The main problem with this is that “the best” is often used as an absolute when in reality there is no “the best” and the changes are moderate and incremental. I always have fun with people obsessing over how many bits of colour the new DXXX camera has over the previous Dyyy camera and “how much better” the IQ is. Ask yourselves these questions:- What am I going to do with the pictures and how much is “good enough”. I’d be surprised if most pple need better quality than what a m4/3 camera will deliver- Will the “improved IQ” of the new camera produce results that are discernible from my current camera?. In a blind test, would you be able to tell one from another?If you can answer honestly those two questions, I reckon you will save a LOT of money
Great shot, should have been the winner.
