Guest Posted October 9, 2008 Share Posted October 9, 2008 A number of new "full frame" SLR's have either recently arrived on the market or are on the way (full frame means the image sensor matches the size of a 35mm film frame rather than the APS-C sized cropped sensor in use in most dSLR's). One of the new FF cameras is the Nikon D700 and below is a link to a laboratory analysis of the new camera. It is an interesting review - for those who cannot face 33 pages, use the drop down box to skip to the comparison pages where performance is measured again a number of others FF cameras like the Canon EOS5D and Sony DSLR-a900. The most interesting bit though, more so than the Canon or Sony, is the comparison with the Nikon D300. Very similar camera but using the standard APS-C sensor. Given all the whooping that surrounds FF cameras, in particular the advent of these new ones, I find myself somewhat underwhelmed by the results. There is no doubting the quality of the shots produced by the D700 but really the APS-C sensor of the D300 is right there with it, in fact in many respects has a very slight edge. Only really if you want to ramp up the ISO settings to staggering levels does the D700 come into its own but for that you'll part with a lot more Â£Â£Â£.
