DSRTfit Photography says:

Alright, the D780 looks like the winner. The most important categories for me are the ISO performance and dynamic range. The sharpness is just a matter of lens choices.

James Ryan says:

Nikon has really turned it around, firmware 3.0 on the z6/7 is a huge improvement, the z50 was a great release, and now the d780 seems like best all around DSLR ever released.

Jose Luis De Simone says:

The images are out of focus, with the focus on the nose (Sony), on the cheek (Canon and Nikon). Guys you are really very little serious with your comparison. Get better for the next videos.

PT76251 says:

Sony has always been behind Nikon in photo output. Colors, dynamic range, iso Nikon was the clear winner.

77dris says:

This shows just how CLOSE the images coming out of different brands are; it's hard to see a significant difference even side by side. I guarantee if you just took 3 images randomly NOBODY could tell you which camera took which image.

I used to own the 5D Mark IV and now have the EOS-R. The EOS-R has much better auto focus (way more tack sharp images, rarely misses), better video, newer tech. However, for stills I found the 5D had slightly better dynamic range, lower noise and no banding (I do get banding in EOS-R images if pushed).

I really like these comparison videos by TLS because they are presented fairly, concisely, and I find them entertaining. Keep up the great work.


It's almost like you guys like gear lust more than the craft and art itself. Almost.

It's been real but now it's time to Un'sub. I can get this in approximately 6,000 other places on YT, I was hoping for more technique insights rather than watch two awkward grown men cream their pants every time a new camera is released and then proceed to split hairs over the results as if it's some divine revelation. Its JUST a camera guys.

Peace out.

I always find it amusing that when the D750 came out it had bigger hype than the a7iii. It was the be all end all of cameras. It was the lowest light “monster.” People were damn near selling their first born in order to get one. It was hysteria trying to find one and buy it. Today, it’s considered “old.” Yet image and performance wise it beats some of the current cameras. But the argument is video usage. Well, these are photo cameras not camcorders. I hate that video usage is how all cameras are rated now. The D780 is not much of an upgrade over the D750 but people act like the cameras forget how to work when a new model comes out. I have DSLR and Mirrorless and here is my finding. DSLR has a more life like (3D) feel to images where Mirrorless for some reason produces “flat” images. I like both systems for different reasons. D750 is still my favorite camera ever.

OLD PENTAX K-1 is so much better camera overall for less money!!!

Sanjoy Sinha says:

comparing a new model with 3 year old models is not fair. Besides, A7IV is just around the corner.

JK 241 says:

I liked knowng how far behind rank #2 and #3 is from the #1.

j cortes says:

Not bad Nikon !

Kyle Komarek says:

Canon was by far the least sharp of the 3…

Mladen Šćekić says:

where fuji here 🙂

Juan Lopez says:

If the A7/3 is the benchmark for all of camera, why not just said buy the 7/3 and forget anything else.

Johnny Dee says:

Looks like the Fuji x-T4 is a better camera.

They are just trying to sale d780
