Pixel per pixel, which DSLR produces the best image?

    I know 1DsMkII produces the "best" images, but it's got 16
    megapixels. How about if you take say 8 megapixel areas from each
    camera that has 8 or more, which comes out on top then?

    The Canon 20D, of course.

    Why? Because I own that model.

    However, on Thursdays after 1700 zulu, the Nikon D80 slightly excels within
    the reduced 8MP criteria, except when Jupiter aligns with Mars.

    It could very well be a Canon. But it isn't the 20D.

    Well, since you know what it *isn't*, why don't you know what it *is*?
    And why isn't the 20D the best for what you asked about?

    Senator Barack Obama announced
    his candidacy for president
    Saturday from the courthouse
    steps in Springfield. He looked
    good. When most Illinois politicians
    are photographed standing on the
    courthouse steps they're wearing
    orange jumpsuits.

    I don't think it's the 20d. From images I've seen, it looked like the
    Phase One P25 blitzed the 1DS II, and beat the 5d for pixel level
    sgarpness. The P45 seemed to suffer from the diminishing returns that
    the higher pixel count small slrs have - but perhaps the owner couldn't
    afford good glass.

    If you really want to do pixel by pixel, then you have to decide which camera
    produces the best image from a single pixel. Then, you can get even finer.
    For example, is the green pixel in the top left corner of the sensor really
    that much better in a Nikon D80 than in the Canon 5D? Curious minds want to

    If it wasn't for the Lack of hi ISO performance, the SIGMA SD14 seems to be
    a good Idea, but we might not ever see one.
    They claim 14 MPs as I might agree from the fact there is 14 million
    detection cells on it 4.6M reds, 4.6M greens, and 4.6M blues .
    The other good thing this bring is a blurring filter does not need to be
    added on the front of the sensor. From their past cameras maybe the bugs
    will be less in this one.
    The thing they did fix, such a simple idea to keep dust off the sensor, was
    to put a clear cover located a small distance from it.

    Odd. On most cameras half the pixels are green.

  10. Actually, a blur filter is needed in any discrete sampling device,
    whatever the domain in which it operates is, unless you are going to
    sample at such a higher frequency than the one you use that the error
    becomes irrelevant (which won't be the case for imaging for the
    foreseeable future). Leaving it out results in two things (imaging
    terminology): sharper images and aliasing artifacts. In CFA cameras,
    these can manifest themselves as colour errors, so it is indeed more
    troublesome in CFA cameras than in these Foveon sensors; but they're
    still there in both cases.

    The Sigma is not most cameras, each pixel has a red, green and blue
    Although Sigma would try to have you believe that each layer is a
