I’ve been wanting to do a head to head comparison of these cameras for several weeks. I was hired to do some portraits on Thanksgiving, so it was a good chance to see how they stacked up. Before you look too critically, these will be finished in Lightroom, yada, yada. I am not excited about showing you unfinished files, but I’m trying to be as subjective as possible. By doing it this way you can see what I actually got from the camera and now have to work with.
First of all, these are pretty much out of the camera. I did a very slight exposure adjustment to each of them, just to try and get them as close as possible. Nothing more was done.
This image is from my Nikon D700 with 70-200 f2.8 VRII lens tripod mounted VR off
This is from a Fuji X Pro 1. No tripod and a tad over exposed. I still like the flesh tones here as a starting point.
Aside from the obvious saturation differences, I think they are pretty close. Here are a few things to consider:
CAMERA GEAR FOR SALE! Yep, I am putting all my stuff up for sale. (I’m pretty sure anyway) If you know me, you know how I baby my stuff! It has spent every day of it’s life in a ThinkTank bags when it isn’t being used. My camera probably has less than 15,000 shots on it, and the 70-200 f2,8 VRII lens was bought just this year. All boxes and original everything is included. You can send me an email from the blog site here. If it’s easier, just send it to [email protected] I also have an SB900, SB800, Tamron 14mm fisheye and Tamron 28-75 for sale.
Nothing terribly conclusive, but this may inspire you to look a little more closely at some of the emerging technology that I (along with many others) think is the future of our industry.
