D5 x Z6 - ISO 10000 comparison

Recommended Posts

The target here is to compare grain and sharpness.
Both cameras with Auto2 WB (keep warm lighting colors).
Aperture auto. Strangely Z6 chose 1/640 s and the D5 1/1000 s.
Z6 and 14-30mm f/4S @ f/4 and 14mm.
D5 and 14-24mm f/2.8G @ f/4 and 14mm.

Agreed that the Z6 wins. But who shoots at ISO 10,000. And how often?

Do you have the FTZ adapter that would allow the Z6 to shoot with the same lens as the F5?

 

I ask, because I feel that it would give you a better idea of the relative performance of the two bodies without the potential issue of lens differences arising (especially corner performance).

I think I still have a camera in the back of a draw where the propect of shooting behind ISO800 was unacceptable.  My current camera tops out at 51200 - it can see things in the darkness than I can't!  Back in film days, the camera would be put away at dusk or else needed a bulky flash or heavy tripod.   Nowadays I quite enjoy handheld shooting at night.

Thank you for the comments.

I just would like to say that this small and non scientific comparison is to share some material for comparison, taking in account the different gears/parameters.

I know it is not perfect but you can see the actual results taken from a regular photographer. I can't find such kind of tests very often and I want to decide if I move to mirrorless or not.

Did you do this on a brighter subject?  It will detail more of the noise/sharpness.

No, I did not.
