Studio scene comparison (JPEG) vs 8 megapixels

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

Canon EOS 400D (Rebel XTi) vs. EOS 350D (Rebel XT)
10 MP vs. 8 MP

Camera settings:

  • Canon EOS 400D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard PS), Self-Timer (+MLU)
     
  • Canon EOS 350D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard PS), Self-Timer (+MLU)
Canon EOS 400D (10 MP)
Canon EOS 350D (8 MP)
3,351 KB (3888 x 2592)
2,882 KB JPEG (3456 x 2304)

There's really no advantage in moving from eight to ten megapixels, the additional 432 horizontal pixels and 288 vertical pixels produce no more detail that can be seen. Indeed if anything the eight megapixel (EOS 350D) image looks slightly sharper 'per pixel' than the ten megapixel image from the EOS 400D.

The Canon 400D remains a very good first dSLR, with a balance of automatic, semi-automatic and manual controls to progress through as your creative photography skills improve.
I think it's very important for every Digital Photo Camera!

I think all of the camera makers (Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc.) have been doing the same thing… just making minor, poor, or inconsequential upgrades to their cameras. I think they all got caught blindsided by the smart phone market.

I want to know if kiss digital 400D can be used to shoot videos and movies. Can it also be used to shoot on long hours?
