A few weeks back, DxOMark published their sensor rating for Nikon D850. The newest Nikon DSLR won the impressive 100, and now it “meets its mirrorless match.” Sony a7R III has also scored 100 at DxO’s tests, and it’s now it’s the highest-scoring mirrorless full-frame camera on DxoMark.
It probably wasn’t going to be much of a surprise for the new Nikon D850 to do rather well on DxOMark. The pixel peeper’s favourite website rates it as being the best overall sensor on the market, scoring it at a pretty perfect 100.
The 45.7MP sensor contained within the D850 is Nikon’s entry into the world of full frame backside illuminated sensors. It seems to have paid off, for the most part. At base ISO, it’s the best out there for landscapes and second only to the Phase One IQ180 for portraits.
Just days ago, iPhone 8 Plus took the first place on the DxO list, and then it shared the throne with Samsung Galaxy Note 8. But, according to DxO, Google Pixel 2 leaves both these phones behind. With the impressive overall score of 98, this now seems to be the best smartphone for “phoneography” there is, at least judging from DxO’s tests.
The iPhone 8 Plus camera recently took the first place on DxO Mark’s list. But, now they’ve tested Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and confirmed that iPhone has a serious competitor when it comes to smartphone cameras.
The Note 8 is Samsung’s dual camera phone, and as DxO writes, it offers the best zoom capabilities of any mobile device they’ve tested so far. It has won an overall score of 94, which ties it to the iPhone 8 Plus in terms of the camera performance. However, the only reason the results are tied is that the iPhone performs better for the video. As for photography, Samsung’s new smartphone has scored the maximum 100.
Another record has been broken on DxO when it comes to smartphone cameras, and the new title-holder is the iPhone 8 Plus. The camera of Apple’s new smartphone scored 94 on DxO test, thus beating Google Pixel and HTC U11.
It’s worth noting that DxO has expanded the criteria, so they now test zoom, bokeh, low-light ability and camera in motion, among other things. And with these expanded test protocols included, iPhone 8 Plus got the highest mark so far.
You know that you were waiting for this. After trashing the Canon 5Dmk4 no clean HDMI output for 4K, Rolling shutter issues and lack of many video features, finally there is something nice to say about the camera.
The final score is 91, which is better than any camera in the Canon line up. But, according to DxO, it is not just an overall score thing, the 5dmk4 beats the Canon gang on every single aspect (aside sports on the 1Dx mkII).
Here is the breakdown from DxO on the top Canon bodies:
Nikon’s newly released flagship DX format DSLR has just been tested by the French measurements and ratings company, and it went straight to the top.
Nikon continues to dominate the APS-C category with its DX DSLRs in the top 5 spots, with Samsung, Pentax (2) and Sony (2) making up the rest of the top-10 list.
Canon’s flagship APS-C camera, the 7D Mark II, is far behind in the 59th spot.
