Nikon D5200 review

UPDATE: The HDMI output on this camera is uncompressed 4:2:2, for a leap in image quality over the internal 24Mbit codec! Check the forum for my ProRes noise grain sample shots

The Nikon D5200 is the best mid-range Nikon yet for video. What is more of a surprise is the relish in which it takes on the much more expensive 5D Mark III, Panasonic GH3 and Nikon’s own flagship the D800 and D4.

Which is best for low light? Sony NEX 5N or NEX 7 and A77?

Comparison

(Click the ISO 12,800 sample image above to enlarge to 1:1). Original samples from http://www.imaging-resource.com

Will Sony’s decision to put 24MP in the NEX 7 and A77 backfire? It certainly seems so.

The mid-range 16MP NEX 5N has by far the better image quality at high ISOs despite being half the price. It’s the Fuji F31fd of DSLRs!

EOSHD @ DigitalRev – Canon 60D, Panasonic GH2 Review

If you are interested in how the GH2 and 60D (ditto 600D) stack up for stills as well as video check out these articles I wrote for DigitalRev. It’s a 2 part comparison but part 1 has an emphasis on the GH2 and part 2 deals mainly with the 60D.

Kai Man Wong’s video-review of the GH2 and 60D

There’s also a direct high ISO comparison in there as well, and you can see that the Canon generally beats the GH2 for stills quality (but not for video).
