I was already on FF when 7d came out but through the years i had a chance to review files from assistants, friends & gfs from either 7d 60d or d7000 (have to find one with a pentax now ).
The IQ difference isn't that tiny really. First you can get really nice files out of those sony sensors below 400. You can get FF quality easily, whereas 7d really has noise all over the spectrum.
I own a 7D and have shot tens of thousands of frames with it and made several hundred 16x20" prints. And you're wrong.
Perhaps you have lower standards or you just dont care, in my case i've always seen noise from that 18mp sensor even at base iso.
I've also in the past taken the time to put up 100% crop tests from FF and APS-C, Canon and Nikon bodies to see if FF or Nikon fanboys could reliably tell me which was which. They always fail, but it also always ends up a waste of my time since they continue to spout their nonsense no matter how many times they fail.
I bet you liked also that test between iphone & dslr.
Explain to me though, do you believe that in some cases with the right subject, under some circumstances, the output from any dslr might be indinstiguisable from another, or do you maintain that this is the case generally?
If its the 1st one then congratulations Captain Obvious you won the party hat, if its the 2nd then by all means, please do create a separate thread and post your thesis about how dslrs have the same output regardless brand or format, im sure it 'll be highly entertaining.
You can see a quantitative difference with local adjustments of about 1-2 stops and what happens to color and noise.
Sure you can...when you turn off NR on one camera and not the other.
You got me there, silly me.
Obviously you can see a massive difference if you want to salvage shoots where flash or strobes didnt fire; basically those sony sensors are isoless, you could push an underexposed iso100 all the way to 3200 and there isnt much difference from a native 3200, plus the tonality will be actually greater.
Sure you can. You can also leave the lens cap on and get perfect images, or so a Nikon fan told me.
Yep sure you can and hyperboles wont help your case.
"ISOless"...priceless...thanks for the laugh.
Indeed isoless and no doubt, with the proper amount of ignorance, its laughable and "priceless". Take care.
