Re: D80 Sample Images at Impress/Japan

I'd like to see samples with the 18-70, 80-200 or some other lens I had.

So nice of them to..

..use textured background paper on ISO testing. I checked ISO 800pic first and thought ..bugger... guess, the ISO performance wasn't as good I expected, then I checked ISO 100 and AHA! it's not completely plain paper...

To me, compared to 30D;
ISO100 to ISO800 is almost equal,
whereas ISO1600, 30D is a bit better.

Compared to A100, D80 is completely better.
D80 ISO1600 is better than A100 ISO800.

Look at the color noise in the pink bowl for A100 ISO800.

Re: D80 Sample Images at Impress/Japan

In the picture with the bird statue, I see good performance in the centre zone of the image. Bokeh and points of light and round and softened at the edges; so-called ideal bokeh. At the edges however they seem to become distorted and oval-shaped and points of light take on rings. Excellent detail retention, almost imperceptible CA or purple fringing.

Look like a good lens and sensor. ^ ^

Glad I pre-ordered one !

Looks like Nikon has got it right this time. Noise was the reason my D200 (otherwise wonderful cam) went back, so I'm glad to see this one seems as good as my D50 in that department.

I agree the D80 looks good from the comparison here but the background on the 30D shots is so much darker that you can't really see the background of the textured paper - so the exposure doesn't seem to be quite equal for a true comparison. At Iso 800 the Nikon D80 appears sharper too (e.g look at the rabbit's paws).

At IS01600 to my mind the colour noise on the mug actually seems lower on the D80 to the 30D. Certainly sharper shots on the D80.

I wonder whether the 30D was underexposed and had to be enhanced. if that was the case then it would account for a higher noise level.

Personally prefer the overall colour rendition on the D80 shots to the Canon 30D.

Looking forward to proper side by side comparisons e.g from Phil

Re: D80 Sample Images at Impress/Japan

I just took a close look at the bunny shot at 1600 ISO. Although use of textured background was not a smart choice and may lead some viewers to wrong conclusions, I must say that this is absolutely mind blowing quality!

Download the picture in full size and look at the bunny's eyes (or any dark area other than textured background). It is absolutely fantastic, especially that EXIF data tells me that noise reduction was turned OFF.

Even 3200 ISO is fenomental (still with noise reduction OFF).

Great stuff!!! Can't wait for my D80 (pre-ordered at Henry's) to arrive!

Yep. If this high ISO quality from D80 can be officially confirmed, I think Nikon got themselves a clear winner!

jpeg's or jpeg's converted from RAW?

Amazing results, if straight from camera. Am I missing that in this thread?

Even NR is turn OFF the camera still kicks in NR automatically for ISO 800 or above with equivalent of LOW setting.

At least this how the D80 and D2X/D2Xs/D2Hs behaves for jpeg.

Re: The 30D shots look far better...

Compare the "stone bird", way sharper, far better contrast with the 30D compared to either D80 or D200.

Re: The 30D shots look far better...

Yep. the stone bird is much better on 30D . But it's also taken with F8 compared to Nikon's F5.6 which is fastest that the lens can produce.
Also Nikons lens is much more of a compromise lens being 18-135.
