Canon 1DX Mark II vs Nikon D5 - High ISO Test

High ISO Test image

French website published high ISO test result of Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX Mark II DSLR. Before we begin let’s talk about the specification of both the camera.

The Canon 1DX Mark II camera features 20.2 MP fullframe Dual pixel CMOS AF sensor powered by a Dual DIGIC 6+ image processors, the camera features expandable sensitivity range from 50 to 409600. With the help of ultra fast image processor the Canon 1DX Mark II can capture 4K video @ 60fps and Full HD video at 120 fps. The fast continuous shooting speed of the camera touches 16fps in live view and 14 fps with Full time AF and AE.

Nikon D5 Features a 20.8 MP fullframe sensor and Expeed 5 image processor, the  Nikon D5 ISO range is unbelievable and touches 3.2 Million Mark, other features include 4k recording at 30 fps, 12 fps of continuous shooting with AF and AE.

If we look at the core specification of both the camera than due to Nikon intense High ISO range (3280000 vs 409600) the Canon 1DX Mark II look inferior compared to Nikon D5.

But the big question is Nikon D5 high ISO numbers really work or it’s a pure marketing thing ? Let’s take a look at the High ISI test of both the camera.
Canon 1DX Mark II vs Nikon D5 image

According to the Reviewers of focus-numerique (translated by google)

Impossible not to compare its performance with the NIkon D5 (recently tested). No big surprises, it is true that both devices are equal even if their noise reduction strategy is slightly different sensibilities to critical passage. Note that Nikon favors smoothing and thus necessarily the slight loss of detail while Canon takes a little more noise but preserved textures. All this is of course valid for the common sensibilities of both devices. Remember that the Nikon mounts over 3 million it manages ISO and porridge with very high ISO better than the Canon (from 200 000 to 400 000).

Nikon D5 does showing only slight improvement over Canon 1DX Mark II. But, the camera isn’t showing any big difference in the High ISO test, that clearly shows that Nikon D5 ISO range written in  the specification-sheet is a marketing thing.

I was really waiting for this, A camera that breaks record by adding a 3.8 million ISO mark in the competition. Does the ISO of 3.8 million is really usable to a professional shooter or it’s just a marketing thing, let’s find out.

Without doubt the Nikon d5 is excellent camera, the camera features newly developed CMOS sensor and a intense ISO range.  Lets’ talk about the ISO test

The image below is taken at ISO 25600.

At ISO 25600 the camera is giving very neat and clean images.

Nikon-D5-sample-at-ISO-2560

The sample images shown below is captured at ISO 102400 and in this image I can see some color noise in the right side of the image (dark area looks bit colorful ). That clearly means ISO 102400 is not a option to get a perfect shot from your Nikon D5 camera.

Nikon-D5-sample-at-ISO-102400

The image below is captured at ISO 204800 where we can see a good amount of noise in the right side of the image.

 Sensor : Both the camera features almost same resolution sensor, there is no big difference here. But, the Canon 1DX Mark II features Dual-pixel CMOS AF sensor that quickly lock-down AF while you are using your DSLR display screen while shooting or recording a 4K video.

On the other side the Nikon D5 built-with traditional CMOS sensor so while you are using display for shooting still or recording a video contrast based AF system get’s activated resulting slower AF compared to its competitor.

ISO Range: The ISO range of the Nikon D5 is EPIC, on paper Nikon is creating world record, the camera expandable ISO range touched 3.3 Million mark on the other side Nikon D5 standard ISO range is 102400. Canon Standard ISO range is 51200 and its expandable ISO range is 409600.

ISO Standard Expandable
Canon 1DX Mark II 51200 409600
Nikon D5 102400 3280000

From the specification we can say that Nikon will undoubtedly will give you neat and clean low-light images, with better dynamic range.

But believe me I have seen the image samples of both the camera and being a pro shooter I will never allow myself to go beyond ISO 25600 in both the camera.

AF System: Now the DSLR AF system divided into two parts, part one talks about the core – the AF module used inside the camera and in second part we will discuss the type of sensor used inside the camera.

Canon-1DX-MK-II-vs-Nikon-D5

Part 1 – Nikon features 153 AF Points – 99 Cross Type points that covers a very large part of the screen and easily grabs AF on still or moving subject, Canon 1DX Mark II AF module remains same as of its predecessor,  61-point AF system, expanded range, 41-point cross-type.

AF Module
AF Points Standard Cross-type
Canon 1DX Mark II 61 41
Nikon D5 153 99
Sensor
Canon 1DX Mark II Hybrid Contrast Detect + Phase Detect
Nikon D5 Standard Contrast Detect

Nikon does have better AF module than Canon, Canon have better hybrid AF sensor compared to Nikon D5.

AF sensor is utilized while shooting the viewfinder and Hybrid CMOS AF sensor is unitized while you are using display for shooting still or video.

Continuous shooting speed: Canon 1DX Mark II is bit better to Nikon D5, however even extra 1 frame can make you a true winner.

Video: Nikon D5 4K video recording limit is of 3min only. The Nikon D5 video recording limit has now become a running joke in the market, So Nikon desperately work on enhancing video recording limit of the camera.

Display: Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX Mark II camera now comes with touch display unit, however the D5 display features higher resolution compared to Canon display unit.

Verdict: Both camera have excellent core specification, Nikon D5 does showing more green lights on specification sheet but it doesn’t mean Canon 1DX Mark II is inferior.

Take a close look at both camera core specification and select the best one according to your needs.
