PRESS RELEASE: Analyses of Olympus E-30 and Pentax K-m Now Available on dxomark.com
Paris, France – April 28, 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 new D-SLR cameras, the Pentax K-m and the Olympus E-30.
“With dxomark.com, photographers can now factor in the data of more than 70 commercial D-SLR and bridge 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.”
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.
