  • Not exactly. I archive raw files plus whatever processing I applied to them (they're all in Lightroom). If you care about the future big things, it's best to keep the original raw files, that way ...
  • You can set the camera to shoot both JPEG and RAW. I'm not sure what you mean by HDR RAW. My strategy is simple: no HEIF. There's no benefit to use HEIF in my workflow.
  • In stills photography, the dynamic range is measured in raw files, with video - on the video with clog; both dynamic ranges depend on the sensor performance, but generally that video is totally ...
  • Why would you compare them in conditions that produce the same number of pixels-on-subject? If you put a 2x TC on the R5, you get (still) better resolution than the R6 with the 2x TC, that is, more ...
  • The R5 performs well in this regard, although my copy (and I believe many, if not all of them) suffers from too many hot pixels (dark currents?) in long exposures. Longer than 30s - the image ...
  • The first image, when viewed 1:1, actually has technical imperfections such as posterisation and loss of detail. Definitely. But note from Mike's description, he saw the scene and slowed down the ...
  • Sorry, but I were to choose which one to hang on a wall, it'd be the second one, although first I'd have it processed to get rid of banding. You didn't use a 'technique' but you used your skills to ...
  • I meant 'photon shot noise' specifically, not just any noise that follows the Poisson distribution. Yes you do :) I do look at 100% too but not for comparison of sensors of different resolutions. ...
  • I thought it was shot noise? It shows in individual pixels (pixel-level noise), but for comparison your have to use normalised images, that is, rendered to the same dimensions. It's the Comp button ...
  • Decreasing ISO for the R7 in the comparison tool corresponds to a case where you don't crop an R7 shot and crop an R5 shot. If you use an extender on your R5, it doesn't change ISO difference for ...
  • 6D2 has an old-gen sensor; and ISO 102K isn't something useful in any camera. With the comparison tool, I'll just paste the same link as above ...
  • It's best to compare the normalised images https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=lowlight&attr13_0=canon_eosr5&attr13_1=canon_eosr6&attr13_2=canon_eosr7&attr13_3=apple_iphonex&at ...
  • No, it's not automatically lossless. 90 degree rotation enables lossless jpeg conversion, but it depends on the implementation. Nothing can prevent a program to rotate and recompress. ...
  • https://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Canon%20EOS%20R5,Canon%20EOS%20R6 The R5 is actually slightly better. I recall DXO measured the R6 to be slightly better.
  • High ISO performance is usually reflected in the DR charts. Many modern cameras actually have very similar high ISO performance, that's why I said it was unlikely the R6iI would be better that the R5.
  • Exactly, so my question was, you said the R6II is a better camera, but for what exactly? No, not because of the small pixels, but because you crop that much. If you crop an R5 image by 75% and an ...
  • Ok, it's zooming, but that's not the snippet the OP was referring to.
  • Not sure how it works with iOS, but with Android, you'd need to give the app the permission to use GPS while in the background. But it could well be a bug in the updated app.
  • That's basically the only significant advantage. For my purposes, having 45Mp is much more important than having 40fps (I don't even need 20). Cropping always increases overall noise, it's not ...
  • I can see the R6II has a higher high speed frame rate (40 vs 30). Not sure if it makes it a better camera. You said 'worse noise', so worse than what? Pixel-level noise only makes sense to compare ...
