I will want a DNG image for download, and have my DOS based software ready to analyze it...I'm on the waiting list hoping $7450 falls out of the sky between now and when I get the call .
I'm having a hard time understanding why his results look that way. My own black and white conversions with the M240 at high ISO are cleaner and more detailed than what I got from the M9 using the same software he's using.This is a good review on the cameras, if you have not seen it already.
This is what he said about that:What I noticed was the M Monochrom rendering of the sky was smoother than the M246. You could see less grey levels used by the M246 image.
On first glance, the MM9 appears to give the smoothest gradations at base ISO. However, it’s important to remember that the file’s overall micro-contrast has been softened by the upsizing process, which has the effect of greatly minimizing the visible noise. In reality, files from the MM9 (that have not been upsized) have a nearly identical noise floor as the M240 and M246 cameras.
