I'm testing and reviewing some Canon cameras (7D and 5D Mk III) for a local magazine. The files are impressive, as is the feature set.

I'll share my findings later if enough of you are interested...

What a charming chap you must be with an inflated sense of entitlement. I'm not saying a silver tongue would have guaranteed it but that you demanded we send pictures doesn't really endear yourself to me to give me any inclination to go out of my way to help.

No point explaining any further, I stand by opinions as I stated in this topic as no 1 has yet shown me pics nor is it likely any1 own the specific cams I mentioned.

On what basis is it not likely? Two friends of mine have D5100s and another has a D800 and we've all shared RAW files of the same subject so, with their permission, actually I would be in a position to help you.

By the way... I'm BATMAN!

Since the blocking of the DPR site is over now, I can -actually, since Gordon has not been able to process RAWs- recommend you to use the RAW file comparison tool. Then you see unprocessed (I think? have not been using DPR too often) RAW files and see the real digital processed high resolution 35mm crunchy lovely RAW files.

Well a very long and successful day shooting with the Mk III and 7D.

Lots of RAWs to process

Sometimes I miss the ´'like´´ or ´'+1´' buttons! Lovely cameras. Someday I would want a 5D II still, but it'll be over 10 years. The 50D's power's too strong! :lol:

I've tried a little product photography, using one camera as the subject, and the other to shoot.

I think this clearly shows the superior definition and colour saturation that ZEMBANU was on about all along.

Lucky me, I already own 4 Canons! Unfortunately I shoot RAW only, so I do not know exactly how a typical Canon JPEG looks like. Dont they look differently every few years? I remember the 350D-450D which looked pleasing but needed some adjustments for most people, the xxD series except the 60D all need adjustments for ´'those holiday shots´´ because they look quite natural, especially with the neutral setting! -same for the 5D Classic/II and 1D series though. Since the 7D/500D everything changed again to pleasing shots right out of the camera, which I do not like to be honest. But hey, there are still the neutral/faithful presets (and RAW mode).

Looking at the RAW files I've got, I'd have to agree that the D800's colour saturation in the uncalibrated shots is somewhat off though I don't have 5D III RAW for comparison.
