5DSR vs A7R dynamic range
« on: March 21, 2015, 02:32:44 PM »
I noticed the guys over at imaging resource have taken some images with the new 5DSR..   So I've run a comparison looking for DR (ok I know they're only JPEGs.. but I thought it might still be interesting).

I took the ISO100 image with minimum noise reduction from each set..  downloaded, popped them into DPP and then boosted the brightness and contrast to reveal a reflection of the photographer lost in the darkness of the "fiddlers" bottle.

Frankly the 5DSR does very well, but the A7R wins.

The only thing this proves is that they wear shorts to work at imaging resources.

What perverted minds ... ::)
I would never raise the shadows of a picture, to see the reflection of the photographer using shorts. ;D

Seriously, ??? I realize geometric artifacts in A7R image (on the shorts guy), which are not visible in 5DSR. 8)

Would it not be a more valid test if one were using the RAW files? Or if the guy was wearing slacks?

As these are JPEGS, this test doesn't tell us anything. Looking forward to renting the 5DS, A7r, A6000 and NX1 myself and doing some tests. These are the top cameras that interest me at the moment.

It looks to me like the Canon is either much better or the guy lost a leg before testing the Sony.  :)
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

You "boosted the brightness and contrast to reveal the reflection"?  Why?  Oh my goodness, just look at the image.  What the heck would you do with a boosted image like that?  This is useful for something?

Too funny! As for shorts, it's Australia, the only English-speaking country with more casual dress than the USA. (At least (or too bad) the guy was wearing......something.
