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).

Samsung NX10 (Raw) vs. Panasonic GF1 (Raw)

Samsung NX10
Panasonic DMC-GF1
5.4 MB JPEG (4592 x 3056)
6.6 MB JPEG (4000 x 3000)

Like the Canon on the previous page, the Panasonic has a very light anti-aliasing filter (as hinted at by the moiré that appeared in the JPEG comparison of this scene). This is likely to be the reason that the Panasonic is also slightly out-resolving the Samsung. This isn't a huge upset though, despite the apparent disparity in pixel counts. If you take a look at the number of vertical pixels they're using to render this scene, you'll see that both are using around 3000 - the Samsung's extra two megapixels are being used to describe the left and right edges that the Panasonic's 4:3 aspect ratio crops off.

In real-world situations, this distinction would only be visible in fine details in the very largest prints.
