Just Posted: Comparison samples from the Pentax 645D. We've had Pentax's long-awaited 40 megapixel medium format DSLR in the office for a couple of days and have used it to shoot our standard test scene. The $10,000 camera is the highest resolution camera ever to be pointed at our test subjects and its huge 44x33mm sensor has certainly done an impressive job. As well as providing a range of image settings for the studio scene, we've also prepared a small gallery of sample images. All the images and their raw files (DNG format for the 'real-world' samples) are available for download.
Just Posted: Canon PowerShot G12 test samples as part of our Enthusiast Group Test. The G12 didn't arrive in time to be included in the test itself but we've now had a chance to take it into the studio and shoot our standard comparison shots. The images have been added to our comparison tools and have been included in the 'compared to...' and noise test pages (you can, of course, still include competitors such as Samsung's EX1/TL500 if you prefer).
Just Posted: Our group test of the latest high-end, enthusiast compact cameras. We've taken the the Canon Powershot S95, Panasonic Lumix LX5 and Nikon Coolpix P7000 and pitted them against one another both in and out of the dpreview studio. In this age of comparatively compact mirroless cameras, are these cameras' bright lenses and manual controls enough to help them stand out? Follow the link to find what we think of the three 10 Mp cameras we have chosen for this group test.
