Nikon FX Camera Image Quality

Talking about image quality is like talking about a spherical horse in a vacuum, since image quality is a complex and often very subjective factor.

Nikon FX Camera Image Quality

Basically, you can evaluate the image quality by: noise level (Low-Light ISO), color depth (Color Depth) and dynamic range (Dynamic Range) of the camera. The higher these settings, the better the image quality.

There is a special project dxomark.com, who professionally tests cameras on these parameters, in fact, from there I took some of the data. Having experience with different cameras, I can say that with the help of dxomark.com you can very quickly estimate the capabilities of the technology. Information from DxO labs is used, for example, in snapsort.com, which can compare two cameras very quickly and efficiently, for example Nikon D4 and D600.

According to D the camera with the best sensor is Nikon D810.

In the table below, the best indicators are highlighted in green:

Max ISO Max ISO HI Color Depth Dynamic Range Low-Light ISO Overall Score
D3 6400 25600 23,5 12,2 2290 81
D3s 12800 102400 23,5 12 3253 82
D3x 1600 6400 24,7 13,7 1992 88
D700 6400 25600 23,5 12,2 2303 80
D600 6400 25600 25,1 14,2 2980 94
D610 6400 25600 25,1 14,4 2925 94
D800 6400 25600 25,3 14,4 2853 95
D800E 6400 25600 25,6 14,3 2979 96
D810 12800 51200 25,7 14,8 2853 97
Df 12800 204800 24,6 13,1 3279 89
D4 12800 204800 24,7 13,1 2965 89
D4s 25600 409600 24,4 13,3 3074 89
D750 12800 51200 24,8 14,5 2956 93

The “Overall Score” is responsible for the overall sensor rating.

Conclusions:

Different full-frame Nikon cameras have different uses, and therefore each camera separately has its own strengths and weaknesses in some criteria for judging image quality. The camera was very surprised by its performance Nikon D810 and Nikon Df.

Thank you for attention. Arkady Shapoval.
