Studio scene comparison (sRAW1)

The sRAW1 setting of the 5D Mark II produces an image which is 9.9 mp. This is a little smaller than the resolution of the original 5D, but much closer than the full 21mp. A comparison of the image produced in sRAW setting reveals how useful this setting could be in real use.

While the comparison between the 5D Mark II and the original 5D presented a problem in that the Mark II is so much higher in resolution, the 5D Mark II also has an sRAW1 mode which produces an image slightly lower in resolution to that of the original 5D. In this comparison we can see that on a per pixel basis the original 5D is better than the sRAW1 file, but there is not a huge amount of difference. The conclusion is that sRAW1 would be a good choice if the absolute highest resolution is not needed; it also represents a smaller file size and thus a speed increase in use for the 5D Mark II.
