EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1DX vs 5D3
« on: August 02, 2012, 11:07:28 PM »
Thanks.  My last test will not push either camera.  I will take both to the car show this weekend and we can just casually examine each photo and maybe reach a conclusion or not.  Pushing the cameras is hard to do and it's doubly hard to see any differences in performance with two very high performers anyways. 

It is kind of frustrating because if you remember when the 1Ds Mark III was new you COULD push each camera and see a huge difference as the 1Ds3 just outperformed everything at the time.  Oh well, I think each are great and seem to have their places for use.

I promised you low ISO so I'll do some car show photos but I also want to test the green hue/shadow issue I've noticed on the 5D Mark III in the shade at high sun.

In these harsh conditions, both camera's photos are equally awful and I don't see any enhanced performance of one or the other.  At least with minimal processing I can't.  I don't think the determing factor for any sane person is going to be high ISO or IQ differences, because they just don't exist.  Speed, shutter durability, AF-point linked spot metering = 1DX.  High MP, high ISO, price = 5D Mark III.

I just am not going to find anything.  I mean, we can argue that the shadows are cleaner on the 1DX or we can pull more detail out of the 5D3's shadows, etc., but it's not significant enough.  The last test will have to be low ISO's, where we saw more green hueing in the shadow areas when people, on a sunny day, were standing in the shade, on the 5D Mark III.  I want to see if the 1DX does this or not.

Well the white balance was still wrong, so I changed from fluorescent to tungsten, which seemed to be a better match.  Both still had a green tint to it some places.  Also, I had to turn NR up to 80% to get rid of background noise in the shadows.  However, that degraded the 5D3 image more than the 1DX.  However, it looks like the 5D3 got the colors correct.

So finally, I took the worst lighting, the recliner shot, and post processed each exactly the same way again.

Here are two photos identically shot and identically post processed:

I was merely looking at exposures.  I can't comment on detail.  You'll have to look at RAW images for that.  I cannot post big enough files on here to do anything further meaningful.  I'm going to post process them right now and post one from each set, around 3MB.

Finally, TERRIBLE LIGHTING shot on purpose, with very little light, with person sitting in recliner.  Same 4 photo/situation sequence.

I then traveled inside, much to everyone's chagrin.  Please note I shot the White Balance WRONG.  I left it in Cloudy just to see if there were any strange colors that could not be fixed in post processing.  Again, we did 1DX vs. 5D3 with both CWA and spot metering for each scene.

The next series was with another person, with the sun directly to the left of the scene, blasting in.
