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).

Nikon D200 vs. Nikon D2X

Camera settings:

  • Nikon D200: Nikkor 50 mm F1.8 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Normal), Self-Timer
     
  • Nikon D2X: Nikkor 50 mm F1.8 lens, Aperture Priority,
    ISO 100, JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters, Self-Timer
Nikon D200
Nikon D2X
4,236 KB JPEG (3872 x 2592)
4,394 KB JPEG (4288 x 2848)

With both Nikon cameras set to their default amount of sharpening it's difficult to make out any significant detail advantage to the D2X.

Nikon D200 vs. Nikon D2X (both at High sharpening)

Camera settings:

  • Nikon D200: Nikkor 50 mm F1.8 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Custom Parameters (High sharpening), Self-Timer
     
  • Nikon D2X: Nikkor 50 mm F1.8 lens, Aperture Priority,
    ISO 100, JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Custom Parameters (High sharpening), Self-Timer
Nikon D200 (High sharpening)
Nikon D2X
4,586 KB JPEG (3872 x 2592)
4,696 KB JPEG (4288 x 2848)

With both cameras set to High sharpening we get to see the real detail as captured by the sensor, and as with the EOS 5D comparison while it is possible to see some detail advantage to in the D2X image it's not really significant.

Likewise, great pics to 8.5x11. Vacation shots and family pics would be hard to beat.

Two of awesome creative machines that I still use. I'll never give them up. I haven't reached 20,000 shutter counts yet! had these babies since 2006.
