20 noise sample patches. Shot with the Nikon D700, Nikon D5000, Pentax K-x and Pentax K-7 camera at almost identical lighting and manual exposure settings. The color temperature is 2800°K (tungsten) rather than 5600°K (daylight)! Developed from RAW (DNG) using Lightroom 2.4 and all parameters set to zero (this is different from the default setting!). Note that the K-7 has a slightly higher pixel count than the other 3 cameras.

The ISO 100 -10EV patches are most useful to evaluate dynamic range and the ISO1600/12800 patches are more useful to evaluate low light performance.

All patches are 1:1 (100%) crops shot with identical exposure parameters (ISO/s/f-stop).
