DxO Labs: camera sensors analysis

Once in a while someone asks "how does camera X compare to camera Y?"

Because of the differences in lenses and technology, most answers are based either on perceived experiences or, even worse, hyped marketing material.

Now enters claiming to be able to do the following, and I'm quoting directly from DxO Labs:
"DxO Labs created for members of the digital photographic community who are passionate about image quality – professional photographers, advanced amateurs, photography reviewers and imaging media journalists. While other websites publish information about JPEG image quality, only DxO Labs provides the first publicly-accessible database of objective and in-depth RAW sensor image quality measurements."

Take a look in the Image Quality Section, to see how your camera's sensor compares to others.

Re: DxO Labs: camera sensors analysis

I'm glad you found and posted this link. Not only was it informative, but it settled a lot of "image peeper" issues that some photographers make into such a huge debate.

Now that I've said this, someone will come along and say they only tested one of this camera and it was a "bad" copy...etc...etc. As I said in the previous paragraph, this was informative, useful, and will help in the future.

Very interesting site... wish I knew about it before... would have been a great asset in helping decide where to spend my money. I believe most of the stats are true.

Great find,
