Big Three Shootout

Part 4 of 5

This page shows the Sony A900, Canon 5D MKII and Nikon D3x at comparable ISO settings. Only those speeds which are common to all three cameras are shown.

Please note that the Nikon D3x's ISO 100 and 200 frames are a bit soft due to camera vibration. Unlike the Canon and Sony the Nikon does not allow mirror lock-up and self timer simultaneously, so touching it to release the shutter at these slow shutter speeds caused some vibration and thus blur. This should not affect noise analysis in any way.
