  • If you have enough money for a second body there's no reason not to get the R7. At least rent it, no use leaving yourself "wondering" what the best camera is, if the R7 performs well then you're ...
  • After looking at more samples it just gets more interesting. Samples from The Digital Picture don't show any strong color cast normally, but at ISO12800 you can see it best that the R7 is giving a ...
  • Fuji doesn't support HDR PQ yet, and my best lenses are still EF mount, so my intention is to buy a Canon this year. Camera companies have steadily been lessening the opacity of the color filters ...
  • In an A-B comparison between sensors the medium of the color sample is irrelevant, we want to know why one camera behaves differently. When we're looking at RAW files there cannot be an in camera ...
  • That's wrong though, the RP image is from three years ago and it's just as washed out, if the color were significantly fading it should look better under the RP but it does not. We have ...
  • Created discussion thread Can R7 Skin Tone Be Recovered?

  • In terms of DR, half a stop is splitting hairs. And again this is 32MP so it's expected the sensor will be more noisy. For certain this is Canon's best APS-C sensor ever.
  • You're complaining that the Custom Function dial allows you to change too many settings at once. I get that it's "Different" but ultimately the bank of custom function slots is one of the most ...
  • So when the ISO steps almost exactly match the R6, I would guess the R7 and R6 share the same ADC.
  • So versus the 90D, the R7 has 0.5 stops more DR at base ISO, 0.3 stops more at ISO 200, and 0.2 stops more at ISO 400. The same sensor, but definitely cleaned up. And it's nice to see a 32MP Canon ...
  • Replied in 1792 or 2560??
    "Both Eyes Open"
  • Replied in 6400 ISO
    I still love using my X-E2S because it's practically a mini-5DmkII
  • As always, the specs of the lens has no bearing on the usefulness of crop sensors. If you can't fill the frame on a 35mm camera, then using a crop sensor gives exactly the same output (assuming ...
  • Replied in R5S
    It will be more obvious how bad some lenses are "relative to other lenses", but objectively the LP/mm resolution of all lenses will go up when using an R5S over the R5.
  • Replied in What if … ?
    At this point an OVF is more expensive than an EVF. All digital cameras are inherently video cameras. People forget that "Material Costs" are almost meaningless in this industry, what you pay is ...
  • Replied in Size Matters
    Every time you double the size of your subject in the frame it's worth an extra stop of ISO. Compared to the amount of cropping most people will do I'm sure you could post an ISO12800 image on the ...
  • Replied in R5S
    Higher sensor resolution always increases total resolution no matter how bad the lens. There is no such thing as "High Resolution" lenses, some lenses are more suited to higher resolution (e.g. CA ...
  • Replied in E
    I still say they were just waiting for memory cards to get good enough, the adoption of CFexpress makes the R5S possible (or at least "practical").
  • Replied in Cannot be empty
    As long as I'm using any auto exposure metering, it's probably leveraging ISO, which makes senes since that's the only setting that doesn't change the composition of the picture (DOF or Motion Blur). ...
  • Well if they're both fine then I'll get the R7. Looking at the image sample tool I'm actually surprised at how good the high ISO color rendition is on the 90D, but camera engineers (from any brand) ...
