Studio scene comparison (RAW)

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).

For this scene we use our standard RAW workflow (sharpening turned off in the raw converter and applied at an equal level in Photoshop before saving as JPEG):

  • Load RAW file into Adobe Camera RAW (Auto mode disabled)
  • Set Sharpness to zero (all other settings default)
  • Open file to Photoshop
  • Apply a Unsharp mask: 100%, Radius 0.6, Threshold 0
  • Save as a TIFF (for cropping) and as a JPEG quality 11 for download

Note: this page features our new interactive studio shot comparison widget. Click here to find out more.

Can anyone tell me if the TimeLapse output from the GH3 is single frames or is it a video clip @ 24/30 or XX frames per second. . .>>>> never mind. . . a second look at DPR's review, I found were the final output is individual frames, although in playback mode the GH3 will play those frames as a video clip. ..

dpr- can you always include every model's shutter actuation in the specification page....? thank you.


The comparison of the different viewfinder sizes is wrong! It claims that the viewfinder of the GH3 has a 4:3 ratio although the correct ratio is 16:9. The red rectangle must be much wider or flatter.

Really don't understand the rating of the jpeg compared to OMD em5. In text it seems a lot worse, in bars it's just a tiny hair worse. Whats with this? Both can't be right!
