I’ve been testing the new Canon Rebel XSi. The image quality thus far is impressive. Below are a few in-camera JPEG samples taken throughout the range of ISOs available. You may click on each photo to view the original image at 100%. Additionally, you can see more sample images in this Flickr set (Full EXIF is available). More news and reviews are available on the Canon Rebel XSi Reviews and Resources page. [Read more…]
I was killing some time in Best Buy tonight and decided to snap a few images on the Sony A200. I took a CF card with me (it’s always a good idea to keep one handy). I certainly wouldn’t recommend overspending on a new DSLR at Best Buy (and never buy accessories there); however, it’s great to get your hands on a new camera before you make your purchase.
The Sony A200 basically handles like the A350, except for the display panel, which doesn’t articulate or feature a Live View function. Otherwise, the A200 has the same dedicated ISO button, which makes switching ISOs a breeze. The A200 has an sensitivity range of ISO 100-3200. Below, I’ve included several samples that cover the entire ISO range. You may download these images at 100% for you personal use and inspection. EXIF is embedded within. If you would prefer a gallery view, which also has an EXIF viewer, go here.
Sony A200 ISO 100
Several sample images are now online (see below) from the Sony like.no.other ad shoot. If you missed Photography Bay’s Sony A350 preview, check it out now and see my thoughts on the fast Live View AF and articulating LCD panel.
When viewing the samples, please note that all images are from in-camera JPEGs. Due the overwhelming amount of white foam in the images (and resulting underexposure), almost all of them were slightly tweaked in iPhoto for brightness or exposure adjustments. Additionally, all shots were handheld and most had the Super Steady Shot feature enabled. [Read more…]
