Day 168|14-15

Artwork of the Day

I was really impressed just how good the image from the Fuji Film X100S looked, spec's below;

  • approx cost AU$900
  • fixed 23mm F2 lens
  • 4896 x 3264 pixels | 23.6 mm x 15.8 mm | APS-C X-Tran CMOS sensor
  • Resolution 16.3 mega pixels

So I thought what would a PhaseOne image look like (not a fair comparison) spec's below;

  • approx cost AU$50,000
  • Schneider LS 55mm f/2.8
  • 8984 x 6732 | 53.9 mm x 40.4 mm | CCD sensor
  • Resolution 60.5 mega pixels

PhaseOne V's Fuji Film X100s

Cost - 55 times more | Resolution - 3.7 times more | Sensor Size - 5.8 times more

A Wild Thistle - X100S, 1/80 sec; f/8;  ISO 200, and Flash set on Manual at 1/16

PhaseOne 645 DF and P65+ Digital back, 1/25 sec; f/11;  ISO 50, Schneider LS 55mm f/2.8

X100S 100% Crop

PhaseOne 100% Crop

Both files were processed slightly differently.  I like the X100S image better at full size due to the better detail in the upper leaves.  With the 100% crops there is better detail with the PhaseOne as you would expect.

All the grain is coming from the NIK Silver Efex Pro 2 as I simulated a Agfa APX 400 film

Quick and dirty Comparison - Just for Fun:

There was really too many variables with this side by side view to consider this a fair comparison and I did it for interest sake more than anything else.  But it does give a good idea just how good the X100S is as I have taken some fantastic quality images with the PhaseOne - Love them both.
