Studio scene comparison (RAW)

See previous page for RAW conversion notes.

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). Camera settings as per previous pages.

Ricoh A12 50mm vs. Canon G11

Ricoh GXR/A12 50mm
Canon G11
4.4 MB JPEG (4288 x 2848)
3.6 MB JPEG (3684 x 2736)

This is the same story as on the previous page. While the small-sensor Canon G11 can squeeze some additional detail out of the RAW conversion the Ricoh's sharpness decreases compared to the JPEG output. There's even a small amount of extra detail in the low-contrast areas of the G11.
