Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Dynamic Range - Try it for yourself, conclude for yourself: 5D III vs. A7r« on: September 29, 2014, 04:29:47 AM »
I posted that particular picture for two reasons, first because of the composition being so similar to yours, the second because I knew you would do the "oh but the 1Ds MkIII is the only Canon camera that could do that" so it is from a 2002 1D.
HAHA! I see you like messin' with us.
BUT - I could boot up my old 40D and it would also fare quite well with a deep shadow lift.
The challenge is to rework a shot like that on a Digic 4 or Digic 5 body. Digic 3 and older didn't generally have as much of an FPN problem, even if they still had plenty of noise.
