5D IV - Highest DXO mark for Canon sensor


Recommended Posts


13.6 stops DR.... Come on magic lantern, get the party started!

What is interesting is the chart against the Nikon D810... It has 14.9 stops (amazing) but that is only for ISO50, at ISO150 they are equal (both 13.6 stops). From there on in, the Canon has the advantage. The A7R II is actually the best overall performer for DR. I think it is safe to say Canon have taken a big leap forward though...

It's about time given the pile of cash they've been sitting on.

Not sure that makes much sense... Canon have always tried to spread DR more evenly over the ISO range rather than have a stand out figure at ISO50 or ISO100. Whether that is a good thing or bad thing is up to the users, but not really a financial choice.

At ISO800, even the 5D III equals the DR of the D810.

They just have a different way of doing things. Good to see the overall DR up though.

Jimmy, it sounds like an excuse... usually you need the best DR in the low ISO values, as you shoot landscape with harsh sun for example.

What about the 1000s of wedding photographers. All shooting ISO50? I'd imagine they far outweigh landscape photographers who buy pro gear.

Anyway, the topic is pretty much moot... 13.6 stops is great and they now have a legitimate horse in the DR race... It is up to the user to then decide how they want their DR spread.
