Sony says the a9 III's sensor offers "global shutter without compromise." Our studio tests suggest this isn't quite the case. We've taken a closer look at the image quality and dynamic range impact of the move to a Stacked CMOS global shutter sensor.

Having suggested that DR numbers say less than you might expect, what's the value of a camera offering more than the roughly 9EV of DR that a typical JPEG shows?
Having said that dynamic range numbers don't tell the whole story, we take a closer look at the bigger picture and the role played by noise.
Dynamic range numbers get widely discussed but don't necessarily tell you as much as they might seem. We take a quick look at why DR numbers are only a small part of the story.
We've shot and examined our studio scene, and its images are a match for the OM System OM-1 in a lot of circumstances. Digging into the shadows shows there's a dynamic range cost at low ISO for this clever, fast sensor.
We've shot and processed our standard studio test scene for Panasonic's Lumix DC-GH5 II (GH5M2). Our review will focus mainly on video, but talk of improved dynamic range made us want to check whether we could see an improvement over its predecessor.
There's a lot that's new in Canon's flagship EOS-1D X Mark III, including a sensor that offers best-in-class dynamic range. It also happens to produce the best JPEGs we've seen from a Canon camera – take a look at our test scene to see for yourself.
The Nikon Z6, paired with the new Nikkor Z 50mm F1.8S produces the sort of result you'd expect from a baby Z7. The lens is consistent across the frame and the sensor looks good but, like the Z7, the PDAF stripes aren't perfectly corrected so can occasionally become visible.
On paper, the Sony a7 III is a tempting option for photographers who've been considering a switch to full-frame mirrorless. But how does its image quality stack up? We compare it to the Mark II and a few of its other peers.

DPRSplit can help you pull about +1EV of usable dynamic range from Canon's 5D Mark IV Dual Pixel Raw files—as long as you don't mind a bit of parallax error, that is.
Yet another reason to always shoot Raw. These two shots are actually the same photo, photographer Dan Plucinski simply pulled up the shadows in post.
The 5D Mark IV promises significant improvements in dynamic range, something many current 5D-series owners have longed for, according to Canon's own market research. How does it fare? We take an in-depth look. Read more
Sensitivity (ISO) in digital imaging is the subject of quite a lot of confusion - it's becoming common to hear talk of manufacturers 'cheating with ISO.' Here we look at why sensitivity can be hard to pin down, why we use the definition we do and how it's really as complicated as it can seem.
Dynamic range and the various ways of trying to capture and represent it are the topic of many a heated discussion on the forums. We spoke to Apical, a company working on this challenge whose technologies are incorporated in cameras from the biggest brands, to find out what it is doing to address the matter. We think this interview with managing director Michael Tusch will help shine a little light on this shadowy corner of image processing.
