Another roundup of G1 X sample pics & SD card write speed

As I wrote in a previous post, I like to see sample pics taken by non professionals. It is helpful to judge a camera’s performance. Let’s say it is a way to see what a cam can do in a “real world” setting.

So, let’s start with a series of pics shot during a concert in low light conditions, all with ISO 6400 (click here). The camera setting are Tv mode @ 1/100 shutter speed, all pics are RAW.

Next, have a look at these ISO 3200 pics (click here).

Finally, some curios user measured the write performance on SD memory cards:

SanDisk Extreme Pro (95MB/s): 21 seconds.
SanDisk Extreme III (30MB/s): 21 seconds.
SanDisk: Ultra II (15MB/s): 22 seconds.

Another 5D3 Rumor

Edit: upgraded this to [CW3+]. I think there will something new between 02/28 and 03/03. In other terms: everything seems to suggest that Canon has very soon something to say.

Ok, got this just a few minutes ago (the time it took me to connect my iPhone to my iPad and write what you are reading in this very moment): the 5DIII will be released 27-28/02/12. And there is another fact worth to be reported: there are Canon NDAs (Non Disclosure Agreements) terminating on March, 2.
My Goodness, I really want to know what Canon has on its soon-to-announced list.
🙂

This is [CW2] [CW3+]
