Official DXOMark Sensor Score for the EOS-1D X
« on: October 31, 2012, 10:14:24 AM »
Official Numbers are in
For the people that like the numbers game, DXOMark has released their official score for the Canon EOS-1D X.

The numbers don’t look too bad, though they don’t tell the whole story about the EOS-1D X. I think it’s currently the best DSLR as a whole currently on the market, unless you want the big resolution of the D800.

Outside of resolution AND low ISO dynamic range.

But neither is a dedicated Nikon shooter going to run and buy the Canon 1D X.


Um, wrong (at 16:15):
Small | Large


1) Green D4
2) AF on Canon

Paper number…there's always more to a camera than just paper scores…people don't buy cameras to do controlled "tests"

I wonder, is there even a site that does proper rating that takes into consideration the lab scores and also have another system for real-life usage scores? Something like usability, speed, reliability etc…things that really matter…

Not such a good DxO score as we were led to expect.

Mikael, what are your thoughts on this?  ;D

Have a look on the charts. It has some disadvantages only in low light ISO DR, the rest is just as good as the D800 or D4.
Besides I just had the opportunity to try one 1D X last weekend, and I can tell, that this beast has an incredibly superior AF compared to anything which I ever held in my hands (including the 7D, 1D mkIII and the 5D mkIII also).

So maybe the sensor could be better, but even this way, this is the best DSLR out there at the moment.

So, Canon Rumors can now dismiss the source of the email they got on Oct, 11 as a (CR0) in the future.

For those who want to know the supposed Scores were as follows...

          Rumored / Actual 

DxO - 90 / 82 
DR -   12.8 / 11.8 
Color Depth - 24.9 / 23.8 
ISO - 3296 / 2786

How can they rate the D800 better at high ISO noise?  Is anyone else saying the same thing?

whatNikon D4Canon 1Dx
Score8982
Depth24.723.8
DR13.111.8
Sports29652786

whatCanon 5D Mark IIICanon 1Dx
Score8182
Depth2423.8
DR11.711.8
Sports22932786
Pitch6.086.92

2786/2293 = 1.215, so 21.5% better low light ISO with the 1Dx vs the 5D Mark III.

The pixel pitch ratio suggests a 14% bigger pixel but it is probably more than that given that the pixel has both height and width and that I don't know if the pixel pitch is the height, width, diameter, etc. If all pixels are square then the pixel size ratio is 1.295.

Surprise! Surprise!  There's NO surprise!

1Dx is a very good camera in all the metrics except the one where Canon is just plain behind and has made only marginal improvements in the last (nearly) decade.

Let's wish them well in their R&D for the next generation of sensor tech.
Which might end up in a Rebel long before it sees a pro body - unless their high MP FF rumor manages to see the light of day.

For anyone wondering why they waited nearly a month after adding 1D X sensor support to DxO Optical Pro to release the 1D X scores, I'd guess it's because they knew there'd be a bit of buzz around these results, and they wanted to drive traffic to their sites now that DxO Optics Pro 8 has just been released. 

How can they rate the D800 better at high ISO noise?

Because the Sports/Low Light Score is based on images downsampled to 8 MP, and when you downsample a 36 MP image to 8 MP, you average out more noise than when you downsample an 18 MP image to 8 MP. 
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
