New Popular Camera Model Data at DxO Labs
DxO Labs announces today the publication of detailed RAW-based image quality data and DxOMark Sensor rankings on its popular www.dxomark.com website for a range of Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony digital cameras, including some of the latest models in the advanced compact and DSLR categories.
Many of the new models featured in the DxOmark database fall into the "advanced compacts" category, such as the new Olympus EP-1 and the Canon G11. DxOLabs found the data to be compelling, particularly when comparing it against entry level digital SLRs such as the Nikon D3000 and the Sony A230; both categories are comparable in terms of price and feature set. Current findings show both categories to be very close in image quality at the JPEG level, with a 1 to 2 stop advantage to the reflex cameras; an advantage that may be closed by using the compact's RAW capabilities.
In addition to the compact comparisons, dxomark also has the latest intelligence on the performance of popular enthusiast and advanced amateur models like the Nikon D300S, the Sony A500/A550, the Canon 7D and the Pentax K7.
