Comparative Crops

Here we compare the image quality of the Fuji Finepix S9000 with that of the Canon 20D, a superb 8 megapixel DSLR, equipped with a Canon 28-105 F3.5-F4.5 USM lens. Each row below shows a pair of 100% unaltered crops, one from each camera, made to match as closely as possible. Note that the focal length specified below is unconverted and not measured in 35mm equivalent. Also note that on a 128 DPI monitor, these crops represent part of an image measuring 29" and 27" wide, respectively for the S9000 and the 20D.

It is quite surprising how closely these images match in terms of color and sharpness, considering these are vastly different cameras. This is definitely unprecedented, although there are some visible differences. It is clear that the 20D has more dynamic range and captures more details in the shadows (see the top row) but not really more in the highlights (see bottom row). Based on these crops we can see that the default contrast curve of the S9000 is a bit steeper. As for sharpness, the S9000 is a bit softer when seen at full-scale on a computer display. However, the difference in sharpness is not actually visible when printed at 240 DPI.
