Canon 5D Mark II Review
Canon 5D Mark II sRAW
Some of you have been wondering what the effect of the resampling done by the camera to generate the smaller sRAW files has on noise and detail, so we've taken some sRAW1 and sRAW2 shots of our Still Life target and converted them with dcraw. In the table below, you can compare the difference of sRAW1 (10-megpixel) and sRAW2 (5.2-megapixel) files to the full resolution files also converted with dcraw. Note that dcraw performs no noise-reduction or sharpening. Also note that these shots were taken with firmware version 1.0.6. Click on the thumbnail to view the dcraw converted file, or click on the link to download the corresponding .CR2 file.
Depending on your browser, you can download the images by clicking on the links, or by right-clicking on the links and selecting "Save Target As...", or similar. Some browsers change the file extension to .TIFF. In that case, just rename to .CR2 after downloading. You can see the full set of in-camera JPEG shots, including exposure information extracted from the EXIF file headers, on the Thumbnail index page.
NOTE: Many of these are very large files (12+ megabytes each). They're here for you to use, but please be considerate of our bandwidth; don't just download everything willy-nilly. - Thanks!
