Hi!, i was comparing samples in Steve´s reviews specifically i was comparing the indoor pictures of different ISO values of those soccer toys from the Sony H5 and Canon S3 and i was wondering if the ilumination for both cameras in these pictures are the same because the pictures taken by the Sony H5 seem to be remarkably more bright, is this the camera difference or is there a different illumination for those pictures? i knew Sony performs better in low light but comparing those samples the difference seems to be huge, Anyone knows? Thankx!


PS: i don´t know if this question regarding samples in Steve´s site belongs in this forum but i didn´t find a more suitable Forum

Here's another head to head...

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonyh5/page13.asp

If it's low light performance in a megzoom, you might want to take a look at the Fuji S6000. It's new, so there aren't too many professional reviews out yet, but you can compare it to the F30 (same sensor)...

Go to http://www.pbase.com/camerasand search by each camera. When you find a photo that tells you about the kinds of shots you want, click on it to get that person's gallery (usually all from the same camera).

This is a great site for evaluating different capabilities. I chose the Finepix S5200 based on great concert shots (I do mostly theatre shots--no flash) which I found there.

Hi the Hun!, judging from the link you provided and the head to head comparison in that site i should conclude that the sampleshots in Steve´s reviewsto test different ISO values i refered earlierhad different lighting conditionfor the S3 and the H5 since in these samples there´s a very big difference in brightness between S3 and H5 and in the head to head comparison in dpreview although there´s a difference it´s not as evident.

Regarding your suggestion for the fuji models i don´t know why but in my country there are very few digicam models of Fuji available, at least online. I´ve been waiting for months for the fuji f30 to arriveand to check its pricebut it never did...

Thanks for your help!!

Hi Pegleg!, I alreadyknew about that greatsite and that´s mainly the reason i said in my original post that i knew the Sony H5 takes better pictures in low light, i checked that there are lots of samples of indoor no flash pictures in that site for the H5 which look acceptableand there are only a few for the S3 and these are usually downsized and look too dark..., BTW, if you know about othersite like Pbase.com feel free topost a link here.. Thanks!!

flash,

There are identical condition pics on Steve's samples, but unfortunately, the low light pics don't seem to be the same...they're not even the same subject matter...extra player, different positions, lighting angle, etc. I have compared the S2 IS to the H2, and consider the H2 to be better in low light pics, regarding noise. I don't think there is much difference between the S2/S3 and the H2/H5 models which would affect low light performance.

Can't buy Fuji online...where do you live?

I wasn´t sure of the lighting condition in these samples since the shadows of the players seem to be the same for the S3 and H5 picsbut the wall in the back and the players look much brighter and detailed in the H5 pics so i´m nor really sure if this is a different lighting or it´s due to the camera lowlight performance or both.

I live in BuenosAiresArgentina, amazing but while brands like Canon, Sonyor Panasonic all ofits digicammodels arewidely available, there are few models of Fuji being sold and unfortunately the F30 is not one of them
