cgarcia, a contributor over at the FredMiranda.com forums has done some initial tests on dynamic range from Canon’s new 32.5mp image sensor. There is good news and better news from his findings.
cgarcia used sample images from DPReview to run the tests, and compared to the EOS 80D at base ISO’s, there is a small improvement in dynamic range.
Canon EOS 90D ISO 100:
DR at 32MP: 12.468
DR at 8MP: 13.480 (+1.012)
Read noise: 2.80125
Canon EOS 80D ISO 100:
DR at 24MP: 12.435 EV
DR at 8MP: 13.2343 (+0.7993)
Read noise: 2.86601
However, the better news is that dynamic range at higher ISO shows a big improvement over the 24mp image sensor in the EOS 80D.
