How DxO Labs tests hot cameras like Canon’s latest SLR

A behind-the-scenes look at how DxO produces their camera and lens test results (http://www.dxomark.com/) – always a good resource to check before your purchases.

“It takes about 1,000 shots to characterize the camera,” said Nicolas Touchard, the company’s vice president of marketing and a veteran of imaging granddaddy Kodak. When you consider that a high-end camera such as the 5D Mark III takes photos with file sizes on the order of 30MB, that means DxO gathers many gigabytes of data for each camera. It typically takes days to test a single camera in the lab. Then comes even more work, though — testing each camera to gauge how a range of lenses does on each camera.”
