NEX-3 Vs K-x Full ISO Shootout (Controlled Test)



Test Methodology and Conditions:-

1. The two cameras were fine tuned and set as close as possible for everything including the colour/tone response, focal length and frame composition, aperture value, exposure values, noise reduction level and so on..;

2. The test shots were taken at the same place, with the same lighting (diffused daylight indoor), at almost the same time, at the same position, on a sturdy tripod;

3. Detailed settings of the NEX-3 are as follows: "Landscape" colour/tone mode (-1, 0, -1), Spot metering, Contrast Detection Auto-Focus with single central AF point, 2 sec. Self-timer, Av mode at f/8, focal length at 45mm, Noise Reduction=Weak, EXIF data preserved;

4. Detailed settings of the K-x as follows: "Portrait" colour/tone mode (-1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Live View mode, Spot metering, Contrast Detection Auto-Focus with single central AF point, 2 sec. Self-timer, Av mode at f/8, focal length at 45mm, Noise Reduction=Weak, EXIF data preserved;

5. All lens correction and DR range/exposure "enhancement" features were turned off for both cameras;

6. Click on any of the thumbnails below will open an enlarged view in about 4,000 pixels in width in a new tab/window, where you can measurbate different pictures in the same viewing size endlessly! ;-)

Okay, let's go!

Enjoy! And, would the new Sony 14M sensor blow the old Sony 12M sensor out of the water for the image quality and noise control? Well, you are the one to find out yourself! I blog, you decide! :-)

Last but not least, I hope you folks just don't and won't spend/waste too much time for measurbation instead of going out to take some photographs! ;-D
