Studio scene comparison (JPEG)

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).

Fujifilm S5 Pro (12MP) vs Canon EOS 30D

Camera settings:

  • Fujifilm S5 Pro: Nikkor 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Normal), Self-Timer
     
  • Canon EOS 30D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard PS), Self-Timer
Fujifilm S5 Pro (12MP)
Canon EOS 30D
5,819 KB JPEG (4256 x 2848)
2,847 KB JPEG (3504 x 2336)

The 30D's superior 'per pixel' sharpness produces an image that looks a lot nicer than the S5 Pro, though the actual amount of detail being captured is roughly the same.

Fujifilm S5 Pro (6MP) vs Canon EOS 30D

Camera settings:

  • Fujifilm S5 Pro: Nikkor 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Medium/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Normal), Self-Timer
     
  • Canon EOS 30D: Canon EF 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard PS), Self-Timer
Fujifilm S5 Pro (6MP)
Canon EOS 30D
3,727 KB JPEG (3024 x 2016)
2,847 KB JPEG (3504 x 2336)

It's pretty much the same story if you shoot at 6MP; the 30D has better per pixel sharpness. If you turn up the in-camera sharpening (or apply some unsharp masking later) on the S5 Pro shot it's possible to reduce the difference between these two shots significantly, but not totally.

I have been a pro photographer for 48 years and LRPS since 1982 I feel despite its age the Fuji S5 is a remarkable camera and with falling prices its a great bargain. With people wanting to spend spend without thought on the latest offering with little change from its predecessor. www.flickr.com/photos/birdseyeviewphotos will show you some images from the Fuji I have 2 bodies,
