  • Replied in Dynamic Range
    All quality cameras these days capture roughly the dynamic range of traditional color film in the real world.  (That is around l0-12 stops.) Many scenes are beyond the range of the sensors.  These ...
  • I've enjoyed reading the commentary on "Medium Format Look" and then on Stitching. A factor that has not entered into this discussion is the increase image resolution provided by multiple images.  ...
  • The most obvious question, already mentioned, is how the new color set compares.  But what does the printer deliver in terms of improved function, cost of use and perceived print quality.  How ...
  • "The R5 is not as sharp as the Sony which you'd expect" Really?  My examination indicates the Canon is considerably sharper at the photosite (pixel) level.  In other words, less sharpening is ...
  • My experience indicates: 1.)  size to to approximate print size (length, width & printer resolution) coming out of the raw processing software. 2.)  or print directly from the raw processing software.
  • This is an interesting thread comparing sensors of different cameras.  The Internet makes it easy to download raw samples to discover similarities and differences. My personal experience notes the ...
  • Wedding work requires two cameras (main, and always a back up).  Both the RP and 5ds are well suited. The RP has a silent shutter suitable for the church ceremony.  It is also comfortable in ...
  • Replied in No magic
    Happily from the same school of more data provides a higher quality image, your point is well made. There’s just trouble in real life application. Just finished a large group of prints from 50mpx ...
  • Replied in No magic
    Returning to the original premise. Will a 50 or 100 mpx cameras deliver a higher quality 12x18” image than a 20mpx camera? For the high megapixel camera it comes down to processing.  With good ...

    Capture One has has also worked well in downsampling images.
  • Excellent, thoughtful post with interesting links :-)
  • I have been using a 50mpx camera for five years.  My experience arises from processing thousands of images. To avoid criticism of products, raw processors generally do quite well with downsizing. A ...
  • As we move into higher megapixel cameras. software downscaling algorithms become as important as upscaling software has been for a number of years.  A high megapixel camera is wonderful for large ...
  • Resampling is the implied issue in my entry above regarding a 12x18" print.  Downsizing is software dependent and algorithms vary in their 4x4 or 8x8 pixel pattern of resampling. The common belief ...
  • A 12x18" print at 300dpi uses 20 megapixels. In creating this print with a 100mpx camera 80% of the pixels are deleted.  A 50mpx camera uses 40% of the pixels for the print.
  • This is my experience in upsizing, downsizing with various camera sensors.  These ideas may strike some readers as challenging common thought. Lenses present visual information to sensor ...
  • Photography is about image quality. With an understanding of the strengths and minor limitations the 5ds yields outstanding images.  Newer models will offer more features, but image quality will ...
