Objective measurements of RAW images are an essential basis for any analysis of digital cameras, but such measurements were neither possible nor available until now
. DxO Labs has developed a new scale for digital camera image quality performance, called DxOMark Sensor
, to serve as an additional tool to help photographers rank and compare digital cameras. This scale is based on three underlying metrics, Color Depth, Dynamic Range and Low-Light ISO, each one tied to a real-life photographic scenario: landscape, studio & portrait, and photojournalism & sport. (This application requires Flash™ as it uses FusionCharts
.) Hours of fun sorting the data by the various metrics, including $$$.
Note that Canon models may require some translation:
300D = EOS Digital Rebel = Kiss Digital (Japan)
350D = EOS Digital Rebel XT = Kiss Digital N
400D = EOS Digital Rebel XTi = Kiss Digital X
450D = EOS Digital Rebel XSi = Kiss Digital X2
1000D = EOS Digital Rebel XS = Kiss Digital F
You may also find some errors. I appears that they have the Pentax K10D and the K20D identifications transposed, for example.
