D3x vs D3 Matched Resolution

This page compares the Nikon D3x with the Nikon D3 on the scene used for the Noise, Color and ISO page. The D3x image was downsampled to 4256 pixels wide to match the native Nikon D3 resolution. The two images were aligned to the pixel level, then cropped down to the interesting area for comparison. Both images were sharpened in Lab mode using Smart Sharpen {30, 0.3, Lens Blur}.

ISO 1600 was used for this comparison, because there is still plenty of detail, and it demonstrates just how good the D3x is at ISO 1600. The expectation is that the downsampled D3x image should be superior, at least in terms of detail.

See the Noise, Color and ISO page for how these images were shot and processed.
