Title: 15 cameras compared over full ISO range for dark noise including 8 Canon DSLRs
Post by: Aglet on April 05, 2012, 03:52:43 AM

For those who find this as useful as I do.

These are all the camera bodies I had access to for these tests.

Canon EOS DSLRs:  5D2, 5D3, 7D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 450D, 1000D
Canon PowerShots:  G3, G5, G6, G11, G12
Nikon DSLRs:  D90, D5100

Anyone willing to send me raw files for camera bodies I don't have listed can contact my here by leaving me a message.  I'd really like to get some Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, Sony and files from other mfrs.

I reduced image sizes with a bit more compression and meta-data removed to greatly increase loading speed and reduce my site BW. Still provides a good comparison and you can see pixel-level banding on the bodies that produce it.

link to main page:

www.a2bart.com/tech/tech.htm (http://www.a2bart.com/tech/tech.htm)

Individual pages for each of the tested cameras will be built and uploaded as I get time and linked from that page.
Those pages will include 1/8th scaled images from the whole sensor, again, at all relevant ISOs, so that larger banding and noise structures can be better seen and compared.

I'll post updates when there's new stuff to look at.

Interesting to see how well the 40D does, up to 400ISO is seems better than any of the newer APC Canon cameras.

What was the shutter time used in the test?

1/200s

Yup!  Still in love w my old 40D and in some ways it's still my favorite. :)
I'm trying to get hold of a working 20D, it was pretty quiet at low ISO too.
