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).

Olympus E-410 vs. Canon EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi)

Camera settings:

  • Olympus E-410: Olympus 50 mm F2.0 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100

Again the E-410's vertical pixel count advantage can be seen but doesn't deliver more detail than the EOS 400D, if anything the 400D's image looks crisper with better edge definition. As per the comparison with the D40X the EOS 400D's greens have also been tuned to be brighter and deliver more appealing foliage green for landscape shots.

Olympus E-410 (NF Off) vs. Canon EOS 400D

Camera settings:

  • Olympus E-410: Olympus 50 mm F2.0 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/SHQ, Manual WB, Noise Filter Off, Sharpness -2, Anti-shock 2 sec
     
  • 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

3,351 KB JPEG (3888 x 2592)

With the E-410 in our 'optimum' state we can see a little more detail in its image versus the EOS 400D, again however we have to say that the EOS 400D handled highlights better with a more gradual roll-off (this can be seen in the paperclips crop).
