| Re: Got the 1DX: Shadow recovery/DR sample |
I think it is safe to say that the 1D X sensor does not bring any improvement in low ISO DR over previous Canon cameras.
Yeah measured DR is par for the course of 5D2,5D3,1D4,1Ds3.
OTOH at least they seem to have gotten banding somewhat better again, probably closer to the old 1Ds3-levels, but I need to go check to make sure. DIrectly comparing to the 5D2 and 5D3 black frames I had on hand, the 1DX definitely has less banding. Less than the 5D2 in either direction. It has a touch worse horizontally than the 5D3 but still only to a very low level and it has much less vertical banding than the 5D3.
So you should be able to mess around it with more like a 1Ds3,1D3,40D before seeing nasties than you can with a 5D2,5D3,50D,7D,1D4.
