    D800E Resolution Samples

    by Bob G » Fri Jun 22, 2012 8:19 pm

    Story Bridge taken on Wednseday about 20min after sunset with the D800E and a Zeiss 21mm.

    Here's a few crops showing - the rivets/boltheads at the top of the right hand tallest upright of the bridge; the sign on top of the tallest building:a boat moored where the riverside lighting starts along the right bank.

    The aperture used was not optimal and neither was the processing due to my unfamiliarity with Lightroom and sharpening these files etc.

    What on earth would possess you to use sharpening on images intended to reveal the resolution of of the capture device?

    A very logical thought process there Walter, but I believe that both web and print will have some need for sharpening albeit much less. I have seen samples of the D800 and the d800E post processed for an identical look and surprisingly the D800E files where there is no anlea aliasing filter require some sharpening for an optimal result.

    Due to the Bayer mask, all digital files need a bit of sharpening anyway. AA Filter on the non E means it needs a touch more though.
