Yes, I do own a D3x, but I have not developped any template for DR measurement
Then I don't remember who made the template for Ray. Sorry for the mixup.
I do personnaly not doubt the excellence of the D3x DR at low ISO and frankly speaking, my life is already complex enough those days that I am not willing to embark on such a project. Sorry about that
This is perfectly all right. In fact, your happiness with the camera should not depend on any evaluation but on what it is doing for you. Evaluations/reviews are meant for before purchasing, not afterwards.
I purchased my 40D after many customers reported their findings, but before DPReview reviewed it. Then I have never read the review; what for?
What I could perhaps do is send you a few 14 bits nefs using yousendit if you provide me with a suitable email address through PM
Thanks for the offer, but
1. I can use only particular images: containing some smooth, non-textured, unicolored, dark, not curving surfaces of very even illumination in the very dark shadows, in different shades. Otherwise measuring the noise is not much worth,
2. I have no personal interest in this question, I have been doing this for those, who might be interested and were misled (IMO) by the mentioned reviews;
3. my email box quota is not enough for even a single file (max. 15 MB); yousendit is the way to go anyway.
However, if you have some "spare" raw files with 1/3 stop ISOs, particularly if clipping occured, only in 14bits, that would be nice to have, so that I can determine the saturation levels, and if those ISOs are fake (like the 5D2's) or associated with some analog gain. Though I don't know why you would be using these ISO steps.
Finally, for the case you don't know this yet: ISO 50 is non-existent and ISO 3200 is fake, so there is no reason to use them with raw.
