Hi.
Being very new to the world of photography I was wondering if anyone else has the same impression as me of the camera labs yacht?

The actual quality of the yacht image {usualy the the first image on gallery page} appears identical to me.
Even the P&S images look the same as the DSLR"s.

Is this just my untrained eye?

Hi TZ2, the yacht (actually an America's Cup yacht which you can hire for day trips on the lake) is always photographed under bright sunlight at the lowest sensitivity, so it *should* show the camera in its best possible conditions.

It's revealing that many cameras perform similarly under these 'perfect' conditions and that the differences only become apparent under darker or more challenging conditions. Indeed if you only shot under perfect conditions, you might think you could get away with a cheaper camera...

I'd agree with that to a small extent, but if you look at the crops, there are still differences. The compacts, especially some of the Panasonics, can show a faint smattering of texture through noise, and some cameras / lenses also suffer from coloured fringing on those high contrast areas on the boat's deck.

But yes, you'd hope most cameras at 100 ISO in bright light would perform well..

Reminds me of paradise and of Gordon's Self-Made Luck.

And I'm living below a Liverpool dock. It's dark and dreary some days, ha ha, ISO 800 required at a minimum.
