Photo lab – The Nikon D850 vs.the D810 vs. Sony A7R II vs. Canon EOS 5DsR, which is better?

It’s brand new, it’s beautiful, and above all, it has arrived at our photo lab: the Nikon D850. And what a joy it is! It’s enough to make us happy to have returned from holidays. And we are full of energy and motivation as well as curiosity: so, how does its 45.7 megapixel BSI CMOS 45,7 sensor stack up against the current kings of high definition?

It was not difficult to make a selection of cameras able to compete with the Nikon D850 as its only serious competitors are: its predecessor – the D810, the Sony Alpha 7R II and the Canon EOS 5Ds R. In order to avoid favoritism, for the purposes of this test, all of these cameras will be mounted with a Sigma Art 35 mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens (one with a Nikon F mount and one with a Canon EF mount). The two questions we will be asking are: what can Imatest tell us about the resolving power of the Nikon D850? And, how does the camera behave at high ISO sensitivity values?

Imatest: a well-designed 45.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor

The Imatest software, in association with SFRplus chart, is able to measure the resolving power of a given lens relative to a given sensor. In other words, while using the same lens, this test will determine a camera’s ability to distinguish very fine details in three distinct zones: the center, periphery, and edges of the frame. The graphs it produces are very easy to read: the higher the curves, the better (as far as resolving power is concerned), and the closer the three curves are to each other, the better (in terms of the lens’s homogeneity at a given aperture opening). You can click on the images below to enlarge them.

Compared to the D810, the D850 is more precise at wider aperture, despite being equivalent at f/8. However, the D850’s increased definition makes it more susceptible to diffraction effects. If you commonly operate at f/11 and beyond, the D810 would probably be better suited to your needs.

Canon M100: the mini EOS M Mirrorless is coming!

Today, Canon announced the release of a new entry-level hybrid camera which will become the newest member of its EOS M product line: the Canon M100. Equipped with a 24.2 megapixel APS-C sensor, the EOS M100 seduces by its compactness and cuteness in addition to incorporating much technology which was developed for higher-end mirrorless cameras.

Canon M100

It measures 10.82 x 6.71 x 3.51 cm and weighs in at 302 g (without a lens). It is the smallest and most lightweight of all of Canon’s hybrids. In fact, this camera more closely resembles a conventional compact camera than a hybrid.

Canon Rebel T5i vs T6i vs T6s, what’s the difference?

The T6s is an upgraded product of the T5i. Canon has released a total of two replacement products for the T5i, which are the more advanced T6s and more entry level T6i. Unlike the T5i, which almost didn’t upgrade the T4i at all, Canon has taken a lot of care in the upgrade of the T6s. The T6s is the best entry-level SLR camera of the Canon line, if not the best of the SLR camera market, because it has promoted the manipulation of the entry-level SLR camera to a new level.

Canon 750D and 760D

The T6i and the T6s can be considered as two different models of the same product. While the T6i follows the model style of the classic Canon XX0D series in manipulation, the T6s takes the 70D as an example, as it is not only equipped with a top LCD display but also has an installed Quick Canon Control dial, forming the classic double-command dial control style of Canon.

Best Full Frame DSLR Camera 2017 Buying Guide (Cheapest and professional Canon, Nikon, Sony DSLR)

After having discussed the best models of APS-C DSLR cameras, here is our buyer’s guide for digital full frame models.

Full frame cameras have a 24×36 mm format sensor which provides superior image quality; they are also built to provide good long-term performance. This past year, no revolutionary technology has been released as far as full frame cameras are concerned, except for the fact that sensors without low-pass filters have become a standard feature. There is however a race going on, a race for increased performance and Nikon is currently offering no fewer than five full frame DSLR cameras! Competition is fierce and it is leading to the development of ever more powerful cameras.

Why buy a full frame DSLR camera?

Before presenting the different available models, let’s take another look at the characteristics that make full frame DSLR cameras so interesting.

Canon EOS M10 vs. M3 vs. M5 vs. M6 – Comparing the Mirrorless Cameras with EF-M Lens Mount

When it comes to mirrorless cameras, Canon has long been in the race with one foot constantly on the brake. There was no flagship model, a very limited selection of lenses, and probably a lack of motivation on Canon’s side to really make an impression on the mirrorless-market.

Since the introduction of the EOS M5 however, these notions seemed to have been overcome. The camera is a worthy opponent to the it’s rivals by Sony, Fuji, and co.

Canon G7X vs. G7X Mark II vs. Sony RX100 III vs. RX100 IV vs. RX100 V vs. Panasonic LX15: The Professional Compact Cameras Comparison

Should I get the Canon G7X Mark I or Mark II, or a Sony RX100 III? Or maybe even a camera that supports 4k video shooting? If so, the Panasonic Lumix LX15 or Sony’s RX100 IV?

Are you asking yourself these questions? Me too. That’s why I have tested all of them.

I personally owned a Sony CyberShot DSC-RX100 III and loved it. The only drawback being that I managed to break it. I replaced it with a Panasonic Lumix LX15.
