DxO: 24MP Nikon D3200 equals 22MP 5D Mark III
« on: June 06, 2012, 05:34:12 PM »
For portrait and landscape, the D3200 scores 24.1 and 13.2 respectively whlist the 5D Mark III scored 24.1 and 11.7. Of course the 5D Mark III whips the D3200 in low-light ISO (sports) but otherwise the scores are the same (81) for both cameras.

So it just goes to show that APS-C sensors aren't necessarily as useless, even with higher MP counts. Unless you need that low-light/higher ISO.

As DxO points out, 5 of the top 10 cameras on their website are now made by Nikon.

Got to wonder if Canon will be able to deliver a crop sensor that comes anywhere near that.

Should we compare D3200 with APS-C camera?  APS-C vs FF is kind strange for me.

Ohhhh zippedy dxo da, zippedy aay...my oh my what a wonderful day...plenty of sunny f/16 comin' my way, D3200 runnin' away.

It's a number.  It pertains to the sensor and only the sensor.  It's based on reducing the images to 8 MP.  The 'weighting' used to generate the score is arbitrary, and thus the score is arbitrary.  Meh. Whatever. So done with this.

We mustn't be flippant about this. For the numerous Nikon fanboys that come onto this forum anything that shows Nikon in a favourable light attracts them like moths to a flame and from a reputable site such as DxO that is like adding a bowl of caviar for them.

One thing I never quite understood was what would the scores have been IF there was no 8mp ds and arbitrary functions to arrive at the scores? I only pay attention to DR and ISO, etc when the camera as a whole has first managed to impress me and tested. . . So, I could care less about DXO. I just wonder about eh scores they would come up with IF the sensors were tested "AS IS" each camera output. I never understood all that and wonder if the subject or an answer has ever come up. . . .

And 2 years ago, before Nikon's new breed of sensors, were you singing the same song?

You really shouldn't insult DxO like that unless you're meaning insult anyone that doesn't publish bright and shiney reviews of Canon equipment?
