Despite all this though, it’s quite odd. Why? One of the black and white presets on the camera does the best job of emulating the look of Ilford Delta 400 that I’ve seen. Plus, the grain just looks nice!
Compared to the rest, Panasonic is still ahead in the game overall when it comes to DXO’s sensor scores. Part of this is because of the better dynamic range and color depth that is capable from a camera like the GX8. Indeed, both Panasonic and Olympus have really come a long way. Even with cramming more megapixels on the sensors, they’re clearly putting more and more engineering into their cameras to deliver better results for customers.
All in all though, I’m going to remind folks that even though you like reading this stuff it doesn’t really matter because the RAW files from all modern cameras are so incredibly versatile with modern software that one camera’s output can easily be made to look like another’s.
