    Of course not. A Canon 5D IV can push 5 stops :rolleyes: You underexpose by SIX stops to prove your superiority.

    In fairness the A9's electronic shutter may be perfectly acceptable here. I don't have the hands on time with an A9 to judge this. If Sony got the readout times low enough then I would have to retract my "meh" comment.

    Dynamic range comparison between the EOS RP, EOS 6D Mark II and EOS R

    All digital sensors are in the same boat here. It's the nature of the way the individual pixels record light. On digital you can push shadows but do not blow your highlights.

    Here’s a vague Canon roadmap for 2019 [CR1]

    I literally just posted, in this thread, comparisons showing rough parity between 5D IV, 5Ds, 1DX II, A7 gen 3's, and A7S2. I should have included the 6D2 (off sensor ADC) and the A72 (on sensor ADC) because the 6D2 is notably better than the A72 while a bit behind the A73. Neither ADC...

    Yes. I think their next high resolution sensor will use the 5D IV pixel architecture if not something newer. Oh, I can almost guarantee you they're trying. But their "trying" involves getting passed some engineering or fabrication hurdle they're facing. I imagine a mirrorless 5Ds/sr...

    In practice you almost never see the effect with a mechanical shutter.

    Ouch. I did not know that. So you get 5 fps or maybe 12/15/20 but with potential rolling shutter effects. Meh.

    I agree. But you just know that there would be weeping and gnashing of teeth about dynamic range and high ISO if Canon reused an old sensor again. Even though the 5Ds sensor is already excellent at high ISO (and there's not much left to physically gain there), and not bad at all at 4ev of shadow...

    Differences are slight. Another factor to consider is that the DSLR sensors are simply cooler as they're not being used in LiveView.

    Dynamic range comparison between the EOS RP, EOS 6D Mark II and EOS R

    What's covered by the vignette would have to be a fairly dark shadow before any vignetting to give you any trouble.

    Dynamic range comparison between the EOS RP, EOS 6D Mark II and EOS R

    IF the vignetting covers deep shadows and IF you want to correct them. IF there are deep shadows in the scene. We're talking about pushing stuff that would appear to be Zone 0 or 1 before the push in a correct exposure. If your scene doesn't have any of that then you have more room to move...

    Dynamic range comparison between the EOS RP, EOS 6D Mark II and EOS R

    R handled a +5ev push fairly well (as expected). RP did not (as expected). Fro will slap you across the face if your exposure is off by -5ev (unexpected). I don't have a fro but I'll throw in my 2 cents. Having played with 5D4 and 6D2 RAWs I would say that with a little post work you can push...

    They're about the same at the same view size across all ISOs. The 5D IV "only" goes to 102,400 but they're both useless by that point. The two ISOs above that are gimmicks on the 1DX II and any consumer ILC which offers them. The 5Ds has a bit more noise but renders more detail, so after PP...

    Here’s a vague Canon roadmap for 2019 [CR1]

    The 7D niche is sports and wildlife, so they're not pulling back from that. That said: * Make whatever mods are necessary to the 80D sensor to offer 4k with DPAF even if it's cropped. * Drop that sensor in the 7D mk II body. 24mp with improved DR and high ISO. * Make the RAW buffer 2-3x...

    Here’s a vague Canon roadmap for 2019 [CR1]

    1) Contrary to common belief, megapixels do not adversely affect high ISO performance for stills. It only seems that way because people pixel peep. 2) More importantly: there aren't any great gains left to be made in high ISO performance. All the shipping FF sensors are very close to each...
