Studio scene comparison (RAW)

See previous page for RAW conversion notes.

This is our standard studio scene comparison shot taken from exactly the same tripod position. Lighting: daylight simulation, >98% CRI. Crops are 100%. Ambient temperature was approximately 22°C (~72°F). Camera settings as per previous pages.

The 1000D RAW files have been converted using an early beta version of Adobe Camera Raw that may not reflect the camera profile used in the final release.

Canon EOS 1000D (Rebel XS) vs. EOS 450D(Rebel XSi)

Canon EOS 1000D
Canon EOS 450D
3.0 MB JPEG (3888 x 2592)
3.6MB JPEG (4272 x 2848)

Taking the seemingly identical JPEG engine out of the equation if anything gives the 1000D a slight edge in terms of sharpness. The smaller camera can't quite compete with the amount of detail shown in the fine horizontal lines on the medals, but renders the pastoral scene on the bottle just as well, if not better. The extra resolution of the 450D doesn't make a great deal of difference overall.
