   Generally speaking, Canon EOS90D is in workmanship Maintaining a very high standard, although Canon EOS90D weight is reduced, but it does not feel light. The surface has a strong frosted texture, a delicate hand feel, and an excellent grip. The thumb can basically operate most of the button functions blindly when held in the right hand. Users familiar with Canon can directly use it.

   Sensitivity: ISO51200 measured and available

  32.5 million high-pixel upgrade, while getting extremely high-resolution image quality, perhaps also many users including me Worry. Putting so many pixels in the APS-C frame sensor will affect the image quality under high sensitivity? With the support of DIGIC8 digital image processor, what kind of high sensitivity performance will Canon EOS90D bring? In the following test, I turned off the high-sensitivity optimization function in the camera, and shot at a fixed camera position. All photos were directly output in JPG format. The following figure shows the location of the screenshot.

   From the 100% screenshots of real shot samples, Canon EOS90D has a very high usability for image quality within ISO3200 when the noise reduction of the camera is turned off, and it is produced in the dark at ISO6400. Some noise. When the sensitivity value reaches ISO25600, a certain amount of color noise appears, which brings a certain loss of picture details; until ISO51200, the picture produces more noise, but the preservation of details is well controlled. In the subsequent real shots, I also tried to turn on the noise reduction function of the fuselage, which had a significant effect on the suppression of picture noise. From the actual measurement results, the sensitivity of Canon EOS90D can get excellent results within ISO12800. This is a very good performance for an APS-C format camera with 32.5 million pixels, and it is not available on the market temporarily. “Opponent” at all.

  Dynamic Range Test

   It seems that the increase in high pixels does not have a significant impact on the sensitivity of EOS90D, but there is an improvement in image quality. Another part closely related to picture quality is the performance of dynamic range. The test method of this link is to expose a photo normally as a reference benchmark, and then adjust the exposure step by step in the positive and negative directions for shooting. The test condition is to turn off the noise reduction function, all shooting in RAW format and Canon DPP to restore the exposure, and output as JPG format.

   Through the real shot test observation, in the case of overexposure, + At 2EV, the details can be basically restored after exposure restoration in the DPP software, which can meet the details of daily shooting under slight backlight conditions. In the case of underexposure, the -3EV picture can still restore the details perfectly after restoration, and the noise situation is not significant. Even if the exposure is reduced by 4 stops, the original film is already severely underexposed, and the adjusted picture details can be clearly presented. The practical dynamic range of Canon EOS90D camera is +2EV to -4EV.

  11 frames/sec continuous shooting + efficient focus to achieve precise capture

   Canon EOS90D uses its 45-point autofocus system to achieve high-speed and precise focus when working in optical viewfinder mode. The full-pixel dual-core CMOSAF autofocus technology is an autofocus system that can greatly expand the performance possibilities. Two photodiodes are arranged in each pixel. It can realize each effective pixel on the image sensor, and simultaneously perform phase detection and focus and convert light signals into digital signals. When the focus position is manually selected, the number of selectable AF points can reach up to 5481, allowing greater freedom in shooting composition.

   The lenses used in this capture test are all EF-S18-135mmF3.5-5.6ISUSM. As a more entry-level kit lens, it does not compromise on focusing performance, focusing accurately and quietly. The quality is also very good.

   Canon EOS90D can shoot 4K movies with a resolution of 3840*2160 without cropping, using full-pixel dual-core CMOSAF for autofocus. The body has a 5-axis digital IS function for short film stabilization. Equipped with manual focus peak display function. EOS90D is equipped with rich short film shooting functions such as video snapshots, creative filters for short films, and time-lapse movies. The common sensitivity of ISO100-12800 is realized and can be extended to ISO25600. And record full HD movies at a high frame rate of about 120P/100P. This shooting was all carried out in handheld mode.

   evaluation summary

  Through a period of trial experience, I recognized that this is a comprehensive performance SLR camera product. If you trust the powerful control and purer shooting experience of SLR cameras, I believe Canon EOS90D is a good choice. While the enhancement of pixels brings fine picture quality, it has excellent performance in both high sensitivity and dynamic range. In addition, high-speed continuous shooting and accurate and stable focusing performance are reflected in daily shooting, and can be easily captured in fleeting sports scenes. It has to be mentioned again that the simultaneous deployment of the five-axis joystick and the touch flip screen allows Canon EOS90D to have the same operating experience as high-end products, which is a commendable product detail optimization.
