This link takes you to a 5d3 vs 5d2 comparison at DXO. Scroll down a little bit to ISO Latitude...they use the word "expendable" instead of "expandable" to describe ISO expansion. I didn't bother to see if they do this elsewhere.
Is this a big deal? Is it worth mentioning? WELL, millions of photographers around the world hang on the ultra important DXO scores...and then you see this butchering of a simple word, and then no follow up or quality control on their website (which gets how many millions of hits) to correct that mistake. All this from a group that supposedly is smart enough to perform all these sophisticated tests, with controls, and a disciplined process.
Anyway, I just thought some folks would think it interesting...
They hang the DXO scores? Where do they hang them? Do you mean they hang on every word that the company publishes? Don't complain about typos in a post and then make typos yourself.
nisujwalker....funny, you got me on that one! But, I have corrected the mistake....it's called follow up. Good
businesses should have a process for that type of Q control.(especially an information business) If they don't, then maybe they don't have good Q control in their sensor testing....it's NOT that big a leap.
Listen, my whole point is this....do these three mistakes on one line
mean the people at DXO are a bunch of idiots...no. BUT, it validates the point that many have made about DXO, that their reviews should be taken with a grain of salt, AND questioned because they can and obviously do make mistakes...in this case, several.
Anyway..like some have said, I've "expanded" too much energy on this now. I better get back to my new 5d3 and test out that expendable ISO....I hear it really expends well, especially when you expend it up to 25,600.
