So I picked up a Nikon D500 from a friend last week. For a number of technical issues1 I was concerned the image quality would not be up to my old D610. I was wrong.
This image would not have been possible with my old camera as the highlights would have had some colour banding. (and this is not a B&W image…)
viewed large, this image almost looks like a video feed from an old TV. I like the contrast and the dark shapes. I have not printed it yet, but I think it will hold up well…
- The D610 has a larger sensor, and, all things equal, a larger sensor will give better image quality. Not all things are equal though, the D500 is several years newer and sensor technology has advanced in a number of directions.↵
