I managed to get my mitts on another NINE cameras this weekend and have posted the results along with the previous 15 on one page. A big wide monitor is ideal to look at the whole picture.
Now, not only are there the usual suspects from Canon; 5D2, 5D3, 7D, 60D, 50D, 40D, etc. The G1 X has been added to the PowerShot group.
There are now the new Nikon D4 (seriously dark), and D800 along with previous D5100 and D90.
Also new to the comparison are Pentax medium format 645D, APS-C sensored K5, K01 mirrorless, and even the tiny Pentax Q.
Also Sony A900 full frame SLR and Panasonic G1X four-thirds class camera.
All are pushed +4EV using my usual procedure.http://a2bart.com/tech/tech.htm
I handled a really neat little Olympus OM D but only a pre-production model so I couldn't get files from it. It did fit the hand nicely and featured plenty of dedicated controls on a squarish body with a bit of a retro look. The grip and extra battery (separate units) made nice additions to the basic body.
So, I've had the chance to play with a LOT of cameras this weekend, learned a few things and shook up my imaging world a little more. For instance, have you seriously looked at the Pentax K5?... What a control-freak's ultimate camera. It may not get used like the workhorses like the 5D3 are but it has a lot of things that would appeal to the creative shooter.
Pocketable Pentax Q puts out impressive images for such a tiny little unit too and it sure is "cute." A couple more lenses for it would be nice.
Unfortunately I forgot to get files from the new Fuji X-Pro 1. DANG.
I DID remember to order my next new imaging tool though. (for delivery sometimes later
Well, I don't mean to do a whole whack of reviews here, just notify those who are interested in dark frame noise tests that there's a bunch more to look at now.
It'll still take me a while to post the whole-sensor reduced images to show larger scale noise patterns but some of them are pretty interesting and may reveal a few things going on inside some cameras for those with a serious tech interest.
