Hi guys -
Over this weekend, myself and two other photographers will be doing a field test of these three cameras.
The IQ180 will be used both on an Arca-Swiss Rm3d with a 35mm Schneider APO-Digitar XL and a 645AF with 35mm Phase One f/3.5 lens.
The D800 and D800E will be tested with the Nikon PC-E 24mm.
We're going to be looking at resolution, dynamic range and general print quality.
DoF is going to be interesting. We'll probably test everything focused at infinity for one set of images, another focused at the hyperfocal distance (calculated using 2x pixel pitch) and f/11 and yet another using tilt.
This is a landscape photographer's test. We'll be looking to make aesthetically pleasing images (identical images with all cameras) and examining them both on screen and in 20x30" prints.
This will be released as a blog post and a free-to-download video under the Dynamic Range label (The Circle of Confusion — Dynamic Range Videos).
My question to you - anything you'd like to see covered in particular, or suggestions on how to execute the test?
