1DX, 1D4, 5D3 outdoor church shots
« on: July 30, 2012, 06:49:21 PM »
I did the 1DX, 1D4, and 5D3 shots of a church this evening.  I did nothing to the photos except crop to the church, as I was using a tripod.  I shot at f/8, 24mm, and used Center Weighted Average on the highlight on the face of the church.  The 1D4 I ran out of room, sorry.  I took two shots, one at ISO 100, and another as high of an ISO I could go.  Note the metering is different, as at ISO 2000, f/8, the 1DX and 5D3 give different shutter speeds to achieve the same exposure.

Here are ISO 2000 (1DX and 5D3) and 5000 (1D4).

The only thing I noticed here, at low ISO, was the color rendition and differing of metering among the 3 cameras.  The question is whether someone, in post, could end up with a much better photo of one vs. the other and to me it doesn't look to be so.  I can't tell any difference out of the camera with these shots.  The real story would probably be at much higher ISO values, trying to retrieve shadow detail.

By the way, the shutter on the 1D X is simply amazing.  Solid, sturdy, and FAST.  It doesn't vibrate the camera like the 5D3 and 1D4; there is literally no shock movement.

Finally, very basic post-processing with spot-metering off the shadow side of the church.  The 1D4 did a better job than the 3 in metering here, IMO.  Again, very basic processing and if you are interested in the RAW files, please ask.  I definitely, if I were shooting for real, would have chosen a different time of the day looking at the glare and purple fringing from the highlights.  Maybe upwards of 2 hours later.
