5DMkIII & D800 Hi ISO

I hate to have to do this, but there's too much misinformation around here.

Here's another high ISO comparison. Here are all the steps so you can repeat this test yourself.
5DMkIII & D800 ISO6400 RAW loaded into ACR:

  • Default settings (no sharpening, but colour NR)

  • D800 downsized to 22MP with Bicubic sharper)

  • Topaz DeNoise 4: Preset RAW-Moderate

  • 100% crop, sRGB profile, JPEG Quality 12

Topaz DeNoise settings:

There's no difference. How Legion5 got the difference he did, I don't know.

D800 has fractionally more details in the textures

Studio shots aren't good measure of a camera's low light abilities since they are well lit. But if we must use it for comparison then a good place to look for is the shadows. Here D800 has more noise but also more details.

The results are there, this test is something you can replicate yourself. The difference is so minute at high ISO it's neglectable.
