Studio scene comparison (vs. Canon EOS 20D)

This is our standard studio scene comparison shot1 taken from exactly the same tripod position within minutes of each other. Lighting: daylight simulation, >98% CRI. Crops are 100%. Ambient temperature was approximately 22°C (~72°F). Camera settings:

  • Canon EOS 350D (Digital Rebel XT): Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9),
    ISO 100, JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Parameter 1), Self-Timer
     
  • Canon EOS 20D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4, Aperture Priority (F9),
    ISO 100, JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Parameter 1), Self-Timer
Canon EOS 350D
Canon EOS 20D
ISO 100, 1/40 sec, F9
ISO 100, 1/40 sec, F9
2,882 KB JPEG (3456 x 2304)
2,903 KB JPEG (3504 x 2336)

It's interesting that not only does the EOS 350D not use the same sensor as is used in the EOS 20D but that Canon deliberately designed the pixel count of the 350D to be less than its bigger brother. Despite this there's really no visible difference between the performance of the two in this test. You could easily perform a blind test and not know which crop is from which camera. Remember that both also use DIGIC II hence identical tonal and color response.

Bought this version (Rebel XT) for about $350 two years ago, refurbished. Still works well and has a good image quality.
