Do the t2i and 7D share the same basic sensor?
« on: April 09, 2014, 11:36:43 PM »
I've been under the impression that the sensor is shared among the t2i, t3i, t4i, t5i, 60d, and 7d.  Am I wrong?  Yes they are all 18mp and the dimensions are the same in regards to pixel... but I'm hearing otherwise... and I don't want to go on spewing misinformation...

The .jpg file size varies between the t2i and the others... but who shoots in jpg.  Is the raw image basically the same save for that stupid filter the 7D and 60D share (and I don't believe anyone likes). 

That's about it... thanks for setting me on the right path.

Me...I shoot in JPEG. Do you have to shoot RAW?

The underlying sensor architecture is likely identical, but the AA filter and Bayer mask may be different, and the sensor readout and off-sensor amplification are probably different as well.  DxO measures slight differences in DR, color depth, and noise between the two sensors.

Can scold me because I have no proof of what I say... ??? But I always thought that 7D has the worst image of all cameras with the "terrible" sensor 18 megapixel APS-C. :o I imagine the signal processing at high speed with dual DIGIC IV have side effects like the abominable noise in images of blue sky at ISO100. ::)

You don't have to shoot in raw... but I have had some images saved because I shot in raw. But to each his own.

But as discussed... sometimes the a(whatever) filter can have a deliterious effect on the image, so I don't want the camera dictating what my image looks like.

So in this instance... if you shoot in raw with both a t2i and a 7d... is it the same basic image?  And there inlies the puzzle.
