I would think that..(lens)

if i posted a shot on the web taken with the same lens and settings with a D50, D70, D80 no one could tell the difference. I'm sure there is a bigger difference in picture quality going form a consumer lens to a pro lens then going form a D50/70 to a D80.

Re: D80 Sample Images on web magazine/Japan

Hi,

Thanks. Facinating images. they compaire the same shots at different ISOs up to 1600 with the Sony A100 and the Nikon D80. The difference is startling - more than just way less noise for the D80 but also a brighter exposure and better dynamic range... The Nikon D80 has very usable pictures at ISO 1600 - the Sony A100 welll - you'd need to be desperate!

Bodes well for the new Nikon sensor and image processing engine. Maybe (at last) Nikon have started to get the noise under control and I can by a digital Nikon

D80's iso 800 and iso 1600 much less noise than Sony,
however it is obviously different exposure for Sony shots
and underexposure could cause much higher noise.
Anyway D80 shots at iso 1600 look really good.

If it matches the D50 high ISO capability, they've done a good job.
1/30 second, ISO1250, f2.8, hand held.

Impressive.

If the images at ISO 800 and 1600 are any indication of real world images at high ISO from the D80 then it will be a huge success. I might be forced to upgrade from my D70. No way the D70 can produce images at ISO 1600 like that. Will have to wait for more images and reviews but the first few images are impressive.

Damn! Alpha's images are underexposed!

You are right, images are underexposed quite a bit on Alpha's side.

800 ISO shot
D80: 1/10 sec, f/3.5
a100: 1/30 sec, f/3.5

1600 ISO shot
D80: 1/20, f/3.5
a100: 1/40, f/4.5

It says more about Nikon's metering then noise control. Nevertheless, impressive!

Banding

Man, I really hate to be the goat here since I have had nothing but good things to say about the D80 all day. I feel I need to point out that I see short banding at ISO 400 and up.

Take a peek at the circular lights. It may even be on the ISO 200 shot, but it's very hard to tell. The A100 doesn't seem to show it.

I'm on record in other threads saying that we shouldn't see banding due to the fact that the green photosite information isn't split between two data paths, and I still think this should prevent long banding from happening. It would appear that the D80 will have short banding though. Bummer.

What banding? I do not see it. Are you sure it si not your LCD monitor? I can see CA though but that is more due to the lens.

Re: Banding

There's NO banding there, it's CA, but not banding.
If you see it, post a crop here.

Don't compare it with A-100

Just look at the awesome ISO1600 image from D80 on its own. I don't think my D200 can match that under that kind of lighting conditions! The Japanese site says this is a newly developed CCD.

Re: Banding

Sorry guys - I don't want it to be there either, but it's plainly there. Look at the toothy fringe on the circular lights.

I actually saw it on a -downsized- set that someone else posted in one of these threads.

Re: Banding

Art,

Actually, your downsized images show it best - it's where I first noticed it.

Re: Banding

There's lots of CA on Nikon's photos, but banding... Maybe it's there, I'm not sure I see it because of CA. I tried to zoom in 200%, but it was lost in interpolation... Do you think it is worth talking about?

Please, tell us frankly, do you take pictures to print them or look at pixels in 200%?

Re: Banding

Look at your downsized image and let me know. The ISO 800 banding is plainly visible at that reduced size.

Now, after going completely blind I see it But still not sure it is worth much talking about.
