DxO Labs announces today the publication of detailed RAW-based image quality data and DxOMark Sensor rankings on its popular DxOMark
website for two additional medium-format cameras, the Phase One P65+ and the Hasselblad H3DII 50.
With a DxOMark Sensor score of 89 points, the Phase One P65+ takes the lead in the overall DxOMark Sensor rankings. Up until now, shooting in low light has been challenging for medium-format cameras when compared to other digital cameras, but thanks to a newly-revised binning implementation (incorporated in its new Sensor Plus feature), the P65+’s low-light performance has helped closed the gap. Its higher Low-Light ISO score, combined with excellent scores for both Color Depth and Dynamic Range, has propelled it to the first-place slot among all cameras in the dxomark database, regardless of format.
DxO Labs is also pleased to publish RAW sensor results for another medium-format camera, the Hasselblad HD3II 50. Given its 2007 release date, its results are more in keeping with previously-tested medium-format cameras (with very good Color Depth and Dynamic Range, but more limited Low-Light ISO performance).
"We were pleased to see the P65+’s results, which clearly show that technological advances will keep medium-format cameras competitive with other kinds of digital cameras,
” said Nicolas Touchard, Vice President of Marketing, DxO Labs Image Quality Evaluation. “Ultimately, such competition benefits the entire photographic community.
The DxOMark database is the only RAW sensor-based comparison resource on the web covering a broad range of sensor sizes and formats. As such, it is a unique resource for all advanced photographers who are looking for in-depth image quality evaluation tools.
