Canon EOS 760D Review – Image Quality: Dynamic Range
At ISO 100, the 760D delivers 11.6 stops of dynamic range – a readout that’s lower than the 13.3EV and 12.5EV output from the Nikon D5500 and Pentax K-S2 at the same sensitivity. Beyond ISO 1600, the dynamic range falls to 7.9EV at ISO 3200, 6.7EV at ISO 6400 and 6.3EV at ISO 12,800.
The expanded ISO 25,600 setting sees the dynamic range drop to 6EV and as mentioned above, such low readings at high ISO reveal that shadow detail is heavily affected by noise. For the interests of comparison, the 760D’s dynamic range results are closely matched to the Canon EOS M3 that also features a 24-million-pixel APS-C sensor.
