As recently as yesterday, we've seen all kinds of articles comparing various cameras' qualities to one another, pixel-peeping to see which one edges out the competition by a razor-thin margin. You can put your magnifying glass away, however, and trade it in for a beer as you sit back and watch a real comparison. Photographer Jim Goldstein took the pleasure of comparing two of Canon's top-of-the-line DSLRs from different time periods: the 5DS R and the Canon D2000.
Nope, that's not a typo. And no, the D2000 is not an unreleased Nikon camera. In fact, the D2000 is one of the first Canon DSLRs made (although it's barely fair to call a re-skinned Kodak DSC 520 a Canon). As with just about all of the early DSLRs, this one features an APS-C CCD sensor. But maybe it's low-light shooting capabilities can be saved by the fact that its mere two million pixels must be huge light-gathering sources.
Either way, this is a testament to just how far we've come. And no matter what, you have to stay until the low-light test. Goldstein's delivery is to die for. Spoiler alert: the 5DS R does somehow manage to beat the D2000 in resolution, as well as in a few other minor tests. But can you play Pong on the 5DS R? I think not, my friends.
