On article Nikon D5 real-world low light, high ISO samples (279 comments in total)
In reply to:

kadardr: I have seen the silliest posts ever in this thread. This camera is the high ISO king for now. Full stop.

Obviously the term "high ISO king" is brandished around rather freely these days...

Its quite good at high ISO... but damn sure not the king...

JonathanFV: LOL! ISO 3 million... I hope nobody is going to use it. Even super downscaled, it's atrocious. ISO 102400 would be my limit as far as Internet usage goes.

ISO 102400 would be the uppermost limit on the D5 ... and even then you're going to get borderline embarrassing image quality...

breivogel: The high ISO improvement over the D750 is less than 1/2 ev at most - which is negligible. Any ISO over 50K is useless - except maybe for surveillance purposes (or abstract art, perhaps). Does not appear that they have changed the Bayer CFA or gone to BSI - which are about only areas to improve sensitivity.

This also does not bode well for a significant improvement in the D500 sensor at high ISO. We are in the era of photon limited sensors.

Which set of images are you looking at...? breivogel is being generous by saying its 1⁄2 a stop better...

1 stop is just plain wishful thinking... And the nerve of Nikon to go all the way to 3.2 million when even 400 K is downright atrocious...

Oh god... the image quality is absolutely horrible... Panasonic are going from bad to worse with every generation of super zoom P&S .

Seemingly at anything beyond 500mm the IQ is so bad... I might as well paint the image on canvas myself... :)

Always stick with Canon in this segment... Their JPEG's are great and definitely a cut above the competition...

Anastigmat: The world is moving towards full frame models. $600 more buys you a full frame Pentax K-1 with 36mp. This could be one of the last APS-C cameras with a price tag over $1,000.

Exactly where is the evidence to point towards the D500 having better low light performance than a full frame body...?! Or are you simply buying into DXO's bull - DX sensor FX performance rubbish...?!

lensberg: Just for one generation at least I wish Canon would incorporate that new 24 MP Sony APS-C sensor in the A6300 ... failing which that 28 MP Samsung sensor would do nicely too... Blow away the competition in low light, DR & colour fidelity and call it a day...

They can go back to using their in-house sensors thereafter...

If its not a Canon sensor then how come the sensor dimensions match exactly all of Canon's previous APS-C offerings... 22.5 x 15 mm ...

Only Canon choose to go with a smaller than average sensor in this category for some ungodly reason...

Link | Posted on Feb 18, 2016 at 09:40 UTC

Why couldn't they include 4K ... ??!! They introduce Digic 7 to the world in this cheesy camera... and leave out one crucial element that could potentially tip the scales in their favor...

Best to stick with Sony's RX100 series in this segment... Great IQ (with mark IV ) and outstanding video specs... They're always on top of their game here...

Why can't Canon make the jump to 1.5 crop sensors... instead of continually harping on their 1.6 crop lineage...??!! I mean who cares about 10mm of focal length when that 10mm could translate to considerably better noise & DR performance...

On article X-Factor: Canon's EOS-1D X Mark II examined in-depth (615 comments in total)
In reply to:

JRFlorendo: According to Digital Camera World; "The sensor gets a modest resoltuion upgrade, from 18 megapixels to 20, but the real work here has gone on behind the scenes, with the NEW ON-CHIP A/D converter design and Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology for faster, smoother live view autofocus."

http://www.digitalcameraworld.com/2016/02/02/canon-eos-1d-x-mark-ii-hands-on-review/

If Canon can achieve 12.4 evs without on chip A/D conversion... then it only stands to reason that on chip A/D implemented would almost guarantee to increase that figure significantly...

And besides by all accounts they've had an ample amount of time & expertise in stripping and analyzing Sony's sensors in Nikon cameras... Canon's iteration will in all likelihood be as good... :) :)

In reply to:

Frank C.: I dunno, I think the new Nikon is gonna smack this camera... is Canon still using their own sensors with the inferior DR? Aren't Canon owners fed up by now?

"I think the new Nikon is gonna smack this camera" ..... :) :)

Yes indeed... stress upon the "you think" bit... :) ... Yes... its always nice to dream... perhaps DXO will fulfill your desires... :)

I'm sure Canon has made such an "inferior" product for the pro segment at this price range... :) :)

In reply to:

neatnclean: More of the same ...
Bit better sensor, but probably still not as good as competition
More video, sort of 4K, but not as good as real video cam
DPAF on sensor, but only limited usage in some modes
Still no EyeControl-AF Mk. II for a really intuitive AF user interface
etc.

At the end of the day: yet another big, fat, heavy, expensive brick with flapping mirror. Yawn.

So you were expecting something around the size of an RX100 or at the very least an A6000 ... with the performance of 1DX II & D5 levels... :)

Canon needs to get their hands on this sensor... They would truly exploit this baby to its full potential... Maybe a 5D Mark IV with this would constitute the pinnacle of photography...

Honestly... integrity... and transparency are DXO's 3 main mottos... How dare any of you chastise them for distorting sensor scores... A camera of this caliber comes around only once in a generation... if you're lucky... :)

In reply to:

freediverx: What is the purpose of increasing the resolution on smartphone displays beyond the point where it can be perceived by the human eye from normal viewing distances?

This just adds cost, battery consumption, and processing overhead without providing the user with any appreciable benefits. Typical of a company focused on fooling gullible buyers with meaningless specs instead of focusing on solving problems.

If Samsung, LG & Apple get their hands on this sensor - then and only then will you have class leading image quality...

Sony's image processing is absolutely horrible...!!! Through generations I just cannot bring myself to even pretend to find it acceptable...

RichRMA: Why would DXO sell such a junky little camera?

They probably want to try and make a quick buck of the gullible masses...

Why must Sony constantly utilize the disastrous Snapdragon 810 chipset...?! Can't they make a complete switch to the class leading 14 nm Exynos 7420 ...

Most unfortunate...
