Dxomark.com Ranks Olympus Sensors
E-410 DSLR and SP-570 UZ
Paris, France – March 31, 2009 – DxO Labs announces today the publication of detailed RAW-based image quality data and DxOMark Sensor rankings on its popular www.dxomark.com website for two additional cameras, the Olympus E-410 D-SLR, and a bridge model, the Olympus SP-570 UZ.
“Serious photographers can now factor in the data on these cameras when considering which models best fit their needs and budgets,” said Nicolas Touchard, Vice President of Marketing, DxO Labs Image Quality Evaluation. “We are pleased to continue to provide data on as many currently-available digital cameras as possible.”
Dxomark.com continues to grow and now furnishes image quality data on 66 digital cameras with pixel pitches ranging from 1.7μm to 9.5μm, and with resolutions ranging from 4Mpix to 39Mpix. The dxomark.com database is the only RAW sensor-based comparison resource on the web that covers such a broad range of sensor sizes and formats, thereby providing a unique resource to all advanced photographers who are looking for in-depth image quality evaluation tools.
Sponsored by DxO Labs, a company focusing on image processing technologies, www.dxomark.com is a free online resource that delivers key objective sensor performance metrics measured directly on the RAW image for a variety of cameras. As a result, dxomark.com makes it possible for the first time to assess the intrinsic quality of a camera before the impact of any RAW conversion and independent of its optics. The site also features a simple scale, DxOMark Sensor, for analyzing and comparing RAW image quality. The DxOMark Sensor scale is mapped to real-world photographic scenarios such as portrait, landscape, and action photography, ensuring that the scale is relevant to photographers.
dxomark.com’s goal is to serve the imaging community, particularly the photo press. Photography journalists and experts can now complement their analyses and reviews with an objective evaluation of intrinsic camera performance, regardless of optics or processing considerations.
