450D
« on: August 08, 2008, 05:40:05 PM »

(continuing from the mfdb thread)


450D didn't have back focus issues, I just got the test for it wrong, it's not rocket science but hey.
So here's the basics: (with a 17-40mm F4 lens)

Handling:
Great screen. good response, good quick af
Viewfinder not so good, not terrible like the old rebels and not far off of the d40 but still, not great.
User interface: simple, fine.
IQ: comparing it to some old 5D files with similar light and similar performing lens (24-70L), very similar performance, you really couldn't put one in front of the other, not scientific, not from shots even on a tripod, just real world, how I shoot, handheld, flash. Really similar, 450D has a little noise, pleasant noise though, similar to the type I usually add to my files myself. Sharpness, similar, DR, similar. You really can't separate these 2 cameras, maybe with more use I will be able to but there really is virtually nothing in it and certainly you can't even lean one way or another. If anything, the 450D has maybe a spot more micro contrast, skin looks lightly less plastic, maybe thats just the noise. I think, and I can't be sure as these things are so subjective and slight but I think the file looks slightly thicker, maybe thats what 14 bit does? Maybe it's the digic 3 processor? Maybe it's just user bias. It's certainly not a big difference anyway. Also, it doesn't make my wrist hurt when I hold it for any length of time. I'm pretty happy with it overall I'd say. One thing I should note, the files really like DPP to process them rather than LR.
