It's a fantastic sculpture. Used to be in the moat outside the National Gallery of Victoria. The water damaged it, so had to be removed and remade about one third of the way up the legs.

Somewhere I have a scanned 6x6 taken with my Rolleiflex 2.8f when in the moat. I know I've got it, because I gave Debbie a copy of it. We have one of her very, very much smaller works.

I'll try and find it, and post it if I can.

This is a photo of a print that I originally took with my Rolleiflex 2.8f. I can't easily find the scanned image.

Great images. How did you correct for perspective?

Stumbled upon a Sony A380 in a 2nd hand store. The camera felt like plastic crap - mind you, most things do compared to the D200! - but a 14mp ccd certainly feels tempting. I didn't buy it, the asking price felt a bit steep. Info about them isn't plentiful, and I can't get a read on the IQ / color output from the raw files. Apparently they were still the Sony entry line, and most users probably only ever shot jpeg. But short of an M9 - I wish ! - it's the highest mp ccd sensor I know of without going to medium format. Could be an interesting toy.

Thank you Don.
In answer to your question:
I wasn't aware that I had. :rolleyes:

Some of those photos go back as far as 2006 when I got my first digital camera.
I think I may have had an early version of Adobe Elements, but I can't recall if I was capable of adjusting perspective, even if it was available.
So it was either a long zoom and heavy crop or just pure luck. :whistling:

If i can find one, a Canon 40D or similar would be a better comparison.


And voila! I asked, and I , errr, delivered?


Very preliminary (and actually very flawed, lol).


Nikon D200 jpeg. 50/1.8D at F/4 . Full scene metering

A couple of points to note.

Upon looking into the 40D setting, it was shot in "normal" colour space , but had had contrast, sharpness and saturation dialled up. I hadn't thought to do a reset, lol.

Secondly, and of more interest long term, is that the Canon chose a 1/640 shutter speed. The Nikon went with 1/400 . The Nikon may be happier opening up the shadows , which at first seemed a bit unintuitive for a CCD as it would leave the highlights in danger of clipping . But perhaps it makes sense as there may be more headroom at the top end, and less need to lift shadows would offer less noise introduction?


Anyway, I then loaded both raws into DXO PL3 and applied the "standard" preset correction to both files. I also pulled the Nikon file down by 0.15 Exp to equalise the exposure a bit, then exported as jpegs.

D200.

None of this proves anything either way, of course. And the key requirement for CCD sensors in my opinion is sunshine , which was missing today. But it may be of interest to those who post in this thread, given both camera's are of similar vintage and 10mp sensors.


And to finish, the D200 file with a bit more seasoning (mainly unsharp mask).

Ahhhh. Just discovered that my Nikon Coolpix E5000 is also a CCD sensor, so I will post some from it here.

Here is one from Montsalvat artists' community (previously a monastery).

On my screen, the Canon picture looks better, with the best colour (subjectively!).

I'd like to do a similar compare with the same lens on both cameras.

When I get around to it, I'm going to try the same Takumar f:1.8/50 mm [EDIT: Should read: Takumar f:1.8/55 mm] on both my Pentax K100D, and my Canon 10D (when sunshine coincide with free time and unlaziness....).

Both around 6 Mp, but Canon 2003, semi pro, and Pentax 2006, entry level...

Yes, in this example at least, the Canon is contrastier and punchier in output, even in the raw file.

@Erich_H , Erik, I am gob smacked by how well these old shots are handled by Photoshop CC.

Remember folks that this is a 2/3" sensor 5 MPx camera from 2003.

When converted using CS6, I would have rated the best of the JPEGs as about 4-5/10. Using CC, I reckon that they rate 7-8/10. That's a massive improvement.

This exercise shows just what a huge benefit shooting RAW really is!

As I go through these re-converting them from NEF to JPEG, I am deleting the old JPEGs. Literally not worth looking at in comparison!

Even the RAWs are far superior to what I remember.

Different size, I know, but check out the colours, detail and dynamic range (clouds especially, but also the stonework around the doorway).
