  • ecka84, well then lets see your version of it. At any rate, I never advertised this was worthy of hanging on the wall, it was just to technically see the noise difference in the shadows.

  • What really would have been interesting is if DPReview would have done the same shot, but also with the Nikon D850 and Sony A7rIII.

  • So, for the 50r, I ran them through Capture One, made multiple exposures, ran them through HDR Photomatix, resized result to 30x40. For the Z7, ran through NX-D, and then did the same. Then I...

  • I didn't take the shot, so it is what it is. The point was not if you like the shot from an aesthetic viewpoint anyways, it was supposed to be a technical evaluation of noise.

  • ecka84, if you want a finished result to evaluate of the 50R raw, here's a (rather quickly done) HDR result of the DPReview scene using the 50R raw, processed in Capture One, taken multiple...

  • Just out of curiosity, I took the GFX 50R raw and ran it through Capture One at various exposures and then ran that through an HDR program Photomatrix Pro. I then resized the picture to 30x40 to...

  • ecka84, why?

  • ecka84, I turned off NR and sharpening on both just to see what the sensor does. I probably would be adjusting both, especially if the goal was an HDR shot.

  • As Felts mentioned below, for the test shot comparison between the Z7 and 50R, I ran the RAWs through nx-d and capture one (for the 50R). No sharpening and no noise reduction. I reposted because...

  • New link to Z7 without NR

  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    Z7 NX-D no nr copy
  • I'm just doing what DPReview suggests to compare the Z7 raw to the 50r raw. It would have been nice if they had shot with other cameras such as the 850 or A7rIII to see what the results would have...

  • Added 2 photos to their gallery
    Z7 NX-D no nr copy50r Capture One no nr copy
  • > Honestly, they both look like crap and unusable that way.
    I don't care which one is a bit less of a crap.

    FYI I lowered sharpening as far down as I can go on both pics. Doing some sharpening on...

  • With the parent post and DPReview's challenge of "look at the raws" yourself, I want to see myself. Keep in mind that the following screen captures are about +5ev (appx for Capture One) which is...

  • See this is precisely one of the reasons why I hate all this video integration with still photo cameras. You can have the perfect still camera taking wonderful still images, but if it's video is...

  • > GFX 50R doesn't have OS-PDAF at all, it's got no banding from phase detection pixels it doesn't even have.

    And that's one of the many reasons I like this camera, no PDAF pixels to cause...

  • What really stinks about this is Costco siphoned away tons of business from other mom and pop photo stores with core services such as 4x6 prints and then when they all went out (or almost out) of...

  • > John you can still but floppy and Zip drives brand new

    Not made by IOMega or any major company...

    Between some random third party making the product and Amazon selling these things, I wouldn't...

  • The big wrong assumption is the drive technology is going to be around for a while. Archival 1000 year CDs? That's nice.

    Use a floppy drive lately? ZIP drive? No? Can't even BUY one...
