The Limits of Someone Else’s Testing
Digital Transitions firmly believes the best test is the one you run yourself, in your typical shooting environment, with your typical subject matter, with your particular approach to shooting. We provide several ways for you to do such testing:
- Our offices in NYC and LA are available to any of our current or future clients to do test shoots.
- We host several open houses, attend several photo conferences, and support several workshops every year where we have extensive collections of gear for use and testing.
- We can arrange a rental-toward-purchase where you rent the equipment and the cost of the rental is counted toward your purchase.
That said, we do our own in house testing as well, as much to inform our own opinions as to share with our clients.
Which Tests Were Run
Even dedicating an entire day to testing it was not possible to do run every test on every camera. Below is a table showing what test files you will find, and in which folders (e.g. the IQ3 60mp ISO sweep is in folder [X37 j]. We have rented a Pentax 645Z and Canon 5Ds and will be adding test raws from those cameras next week. If you are in NYC and own another camera and would like it included in this testing, please contact Doug Peterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP.
