Compared to the Canon EOS-D60 (contd.)

Studio scene comparison (ISO 100, JPEG)

This is our standard studio scene comparison shot taken from exactly the same tripod position within minutes of each other. Lighting: 2 x 800W studio lights with dichroic daylight filters bounced off a white ceiling reflector. Crops magnified 200%.

Camera settings:

  • Canon EOS-10D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9), ISO 100, JPEG Large/Fine,
    Manual WB, Standard Parameters, Mirror Lock-up
     
  • Canon EOS-D60: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9), ISO 100, JPEG Large/Fine,
    Manual WB, Standard Parameters, Mirror Lock-up

As noted on the previous page there is very little difference between the two cameras, some subtle color adjustment, some tweaking to the EOS-10D's sharpening algorithm (slightly less aggressive, less visible 45 degree jaggies) and moderately improved dynamic range. Noise levels for both cameras at ISO 100 are virtually zero.

Studio scene comparison (ISO 800, JPEG)

As above, except this time we have increased the sensitivity of both cameras to ISO 800. Lighting: 2 x 800W studio lights with dichroic daylight filters bounced off a white ceiling reflector. Crops magnified 200%.

Camera settings:

  • Canon EOS-10D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9), ISO 800, JPEG Large/Fine,
    Manual WB, Standard Parameters, Mirror Lock-up

It's amazing how well both of these cameras perform at such a high sensitivity, I can't think of a single ISO 800 film which could produce images this sharp with such little grain. The EOS-10D takes the lead here, clearly Canon has managed to reduce the amount of 'noise in' and also made some tweaks to the sharpening algorithm which adds up to a performance which looks better than some other digital SLR's ISO 200. Very impressive indeed.
