Shooting with the A7s brought this to mind as it's an obvious contender. Most users seem to agree that the files are just 'lovely' with a kind of internal glow.
This got me thinking - there is quite a conventional wisdom on the internet that this is a CCD / CMOS difference . . . .
So - cameras I'm aware of which have been considered in this light:
..... and now
I can't speak for MF cameras as I've not owned one, but I'm sure there are contenders there as well. (and others that I've missed).
Noticeable that in his review of the A7s Michael Reichmann said that the files had a medium format like look. DxO figures certainly don't give a clue - or CCD/CMOS.
Do the manufacturer's even understand this? Or is it just a by product of sensor design? is it quantifiable?
What do you think?
