John Harrington: Nikon D3 vs. Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

John Harrington, who bought both cams at the same time, did a comparision by uprezzing the D3 files to match the 1DsIII resolution – with interesting results.

For large commercial jobs, where I am thinking I want a higher native resolution, it’ll be the Canon I reach for. For low light situations, which are all too common, it will, without a doubt, be Nikon


Focus instead on the noise- or lack thereof. It’s absolutely amazing. The color is smoother, and, as you’ll see in the megapixel section, it up-rezzes better.
