I continue my testing of the A900 and looking very hard at how to best process the Raw files and provide the best IQ. I have now discovered (this maybe old news to many) the threads discussing shooting in craw and downsampling the images to a 12 mpix image size, this seems to provide some advantages when trying to look at the higher iso and noise performance of this great camera.
I wanted to ask what the views were from other users on this topic as a preferred workflow and method to gain the best result. I was very interested that using this approach you can get the files to be very close to D3 IQ at 1600 and 3200 as these are the sensitivities I am most interested in. It seems from David Kilpatrick that the A900 in this way will provide or have the edge in detail?
