Why no archive for individual cameras?

I always looks through the lens archive and was wondering why we don't have a camera archive. It seems like we already have a few threads in this forum with people asking pictures from specifc cameras.

What does everyone else think or am I alone?

Probably because the lens dictates more of the IQ than the body. With the last 2 or 3 generations of the Canon bodies, the largest differentiation is the ISO performance, so if we had an archive by body for ISO performance that would make sense.

Agreed with above. Really no point to it...unless its just to show photos of the camera not photo from the camera.

Good to hear other opinions. I do go through Pbase by different camera models as much as I do lenses.

Just to add, I don't agree with this 100%. Improvement in ISO is not the only thing we should be considering. With new cameras, we are getting new sensor technology, better analog-digital conversion such as the new 14-bit ADC giving more latitude in PP and tonal range, better autofocus technology either it be tracking or focusing in low light, better in-camera noise reduction, other good features such as HTP, etc. These are things I wouldn't mind comparing between different cameras especially if using the same lens.

However, those other factors are entirely to hard to compare between cameras, unless somebody has the same bodies and then shoots the same conditions with each with the same lens. It is too difficult to determine between two different persons' shots, which has the better IQ due to the newer tech or the lens or the lighting.

HTP is the only other item that may be interesting along with the ISO factors of the bodies, but again, if you don't know what the conditions are, one person shooting the bride and getting details in the normally blown out areas compared to somebody elses shot could be the lighting, the settings, etc.

Now if rules were established that somebody with multiple bodies would shoot the same shot with the same lens to add to the camera archive, that would be especially helpful.

I tried to get an ISO registry thread started where folks could shoot the same things with their different bodies, but it never took off. It would have been the most controlled comparison threads out there where you find the common items, list your settings and show your ISO results for the different bodies. Without some sort of controlled set of rules, a camera body thread would just turn into a photo gallery that would have nothing really to do with the body as much as individual creativity.

How about 5D archives of photos shot while wearing yellow socks?


HEY! HO!
LETS GO!

When I wrote the word "compare", I should have been clearer. I didn't mean comparing with controlled test shots but just shots you want to share much in the same way as the lens archive.

We already have some threads started in this forum which are like the lens archive in the links below.
