And BTW, kicking the 5D is like abusing a warm and fuzzy dog. The 5D is/was a landmark camera that's still in a class of one (D3 doesn't count; it's over twice as expensive) *three* years after it was released.
Well, it's still around because there is no replacement model yet. Landmark camera it may be, but not many people are buying it and it is basically just sitting on the shelf.

Would love to see real stats from the manufacturer.
Anyways a tid-bit for today and all the FF people:
More numerous smaller pixels can give better performance at the low ISO end, including more image DR, and this can be simulated with existing sensors. Any high-MP P&S camera will outperform any big-pixel DSLR with the same absolute subject size on the sensor; IOW, if you fill a frame with a subject on a 10MP P&S, and take a 5D or D3 and use the same size subject image in a crop, the P&S will have not only more resolution, but more image DR at base ISO. The 5D, and D3, however, have high ISO optimizations and may be slightly better (but not drastically).

More MP Aps-c seems to be to my liking

guess i'll have somethign to read tommorow at work thanks for the links.
think about putting a cc 40-m filter over your lens as well if shooting in daylight or flash, use a custom WB of course).
Hi
Your kidding about the magenta filters?
*



Not at all; I wouldn't joke about a thing like that. That's the natural light color for most digital cameras. They see magenta as white. They see white as a cyan-ish green. Daylight needs much more white balancing than magenta light. White-balancing for daylight usually consists of a 1 stop boost of the red, and 1/2 stop boost of the blue.

Luminous Landscape Forum -> Sony 24.6MP "Flagship Model" to ship in 2008.

New thread on "how ISO works" question started

QuoteOriginally posted by jeffkrol Quote
the EXACT same amount of light hits the sensor and the EXACT same amount of detail is there regardless of the fact that you set the camera to 200 and -3 EV IF the shutter speed and aperature are identical ( f4 at 1/10 sec).
Is this so?

I have started thread https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-dslr-discussion/20816-same-apertur...impact-iq.html to discuss this further because it starts to get off-topic here.
