High ISO Test: Olympus EP3 vs Canon 5D Mk II vs 7D at The Phoblographer
Thx for posting this.... link to the EP3 review was there and it was very informative.
Yeah I guess we're going to see what happenes after official release....
E-P3 reviews have some weird sample images - some are horrible while others excel....I've never seen this much in extremes before...
What did you think was so horrible.... and not user related.
As someone else stated elsewhere,
The possibility exists that not every one with an E-P3 has the same firmware, hence why the samples look different in different reviews....
The difference in quality will not be because of the firmware. Firmware at this point would be influencing camera operation rather then having any perceptible impact on the image quality.
What would worry me is typical ISO1600 and up tend to indicate degradation of fine details. What REALLY sets me back is seeing sky noise at base ISO. I won't put up with that. They'd better get hat worked out or i'll be taking a pass.
some suggestions for other useful reviews:
Olympus EP3 versus
creature from the black lagoon
the invisible man
the headless horsemen
the purple people eater
loch ness monster

The sensor in the new Oly cameras is really no different than what we already have. Sky noise will be there even at low ISO, maybe a jpg engine might alter NR, but if you plan on looking at RAW, you will see no difference except an increase in sharpness due to a weaker AA filter (that is, compared to the EP1/2. The EPL series already has this weaker AA filter).
The changes in the sensor are really in the sensor package -- dual processors and possibly faster read out rates. The sensor itself has not changed. Also, the EPL3 has a new shutter (unrelated to the sensor, but worth noting). Otherwise, this update is really about the LCD (resolution and tilt), the camera body, and the AF speed (with the EPL3 also getting the new shutter). Oh, and the new LEN$E$!
I am not the reviewer - I'm only the messenger..
No, no, no. The Situation!
What about Chuck Norris?
Chuck Norris gets 22 EVs of DR out of his Canon PowerShot 1000, and shoots noise-free images at 48,000 ISO.
Since the EP2 faired pretty well against the creature from the black lagoon, hopefully the EP3 will be even better! (I wish I could figure out how to 'thank' via the iPhone. This was awesome.)
Chuck Norris doesn't capture images, he kills them.
Chuck Norris takes a picture of a flower and the result is a picture of Chuck Norris.
