A Wonderful Camera Geek’s Analysis of The DxO Mark Database

February 2nd, 2011

If you are a Camera geek like me you’ll love Peter van den Hamer’s analysis and charts over at luminous-landscape.com.

Peter explains that the purpose of his article is to answer the following interrelated questions:

  • What do the DxOMark Sensor results mean?
  • How valid are the benchmark scores?
  • Why do large sensors outperform smaller ones?
  • Why don’t MPixels say much about image quality?
  • What can we learn about the cameras and industry from the DxOMark data?

OK, I admit it, this isn’t directly related to real estate photography but I get so excited about really insightful presentation of data that I just couldn’t help myself.

The big winners in many areas of Peter’s analysis is the Nikon D7000 and the Pentax K-5.

    And in, general, Sony latest image sensor 😉

  • Great statistical anslysis and report. May push me over the edge to an A55 for my next camera. I now use an Olympus E520 with a rating of 55. It takes better pics than 99% of the pictures on my MLS system. The A55 with a rating of 73 is therefore a big step UP even though it is not as high as other cameras with ratings of 80 or above. Thanks for this info.
