DxOMark tested the performance of the imaging sensor of the new Canon EOS R8. It gets a score of 93. Not bad. They say:
The full-frame Canon EOS R8 is touted as an ideal travel camera, and its mix of affordable pricing, relatively compact dimensions and strong feature set make for a compelling argument. Initially, though, the adoption of a conventional front-side illuminated 24.2 MP CMOS sensor appears to be a weak link. However, it’s clear, from our tests, the Canon EOS R8 sensor is capable of producing extremely high image quality. Indeed in terms of color depth and dynamic range, it is on par with the leading BSI-type CMOS sensors. What’s more, that’s throughout the ISO sensitivity range not just at the ‘headline’ maximum or peak value measured at base. While it remains unclear exactly how Canon has achieved such a significant performance uplift with an FSI-type CMOS sensor, competition like this is always good to see.
It’s rather interesting to see how well the imaging sensor of EOS R8 compare to its much more powerful (and expensive) siblings. See the image below.
