Today, bluevelvetrestaurant.com would like to introduce to you How BIG can you PRINT your PHOTOS? (Fuji XT3 vs Nikon Z7 vs GFX 50R). Following along are instructions in the video below:
“Big thanks to squarespace for sponsoring this week s video. Okay in today s videos videos you can see i ve got some massive prints and we re going to at aps c. Full frame and medium format and just see how they compare when you start printing morning everybody as you can see by my breath so really cold morning this morning. So i ve got out early this morning to try.
And do an early walk with my dad who s down here for christmas and we re walking up the cloud it s called hopefully. It s not gonna be too cloudy and it looks like it s going to be a really nice sunrise. I m here with pebbles as well and i ve got the fuji 50 r. Which i m going to test as well and i ve got my fuji xt3.
The fuji 50 r. And also my nikon. Z7 so i ve got an xps c. Sensor.
A full frame sensor and a medium format. Sensor and i m going to compare all three of them okay. We re gonna get there before sunrise. Let s go.
It s a hard thing so the sunrise. Didn t really happen. It s very sort of muted sunrise over there so what i m doing is shooting. In this direction.
Which is the cheshire play and it s really flat and i found some interesting rocks here and a little bit of a puddle and there s a viaduct going over the hills in the distance. There i think it s going to make a really good shot to test this fuji gfx 50. Are against my fuji. Xt3 and my nic on now obviously.
This is going to be better. It s a medium format camera. But what i want to see is just how much better. It is you know what is the real difference in this compared to those others now this shot hasn t got a huge amount of dynamic range.
But it s got a lot of detail it the sheep walking across the field distant views. There s really close up views here. I m gonna be able to see a little bit about what i can pull out of shadows. Because there s gonna be some shadow detail down here more anything.
It s just a great shot. So i m gonna stick this on the tripod and one thing. I would say with this this camera is it s a big lump of a thing. It s not the prettiest camera in the world.
But that doesn t matter i have to say that i m i don t find it that intuitive to use and maybe. That s because i m just not used to it yeah. And but you know i ve obviously used a fuji for a good number of years now i ve got on it a 23 millimeter lens. Which is equivalent.
I think if i got my figures right to around about 16 millimetres and that s what i ve shot on all my cameras as well so i ve gone for around between sort of 14 and 18 millimeters around that sort of range okay so i m going to stick this on a tripod and let s give it a go. It s a 23 millimeter prime lens and it s meant to be one of the sharpest lens you can get for this camera so switch it on and apothem that it s just like shooting with any other camera really the i ve got focus peaking on. But i might actually just focused in on the distance and then i m just doing an exposure. Delay for two seconds.
An eighth of a second 23 millimeter prime lens on this fuji 50 r. And it looks fantastic. This is sun coming now out on the rocks. And it s so lovely here oh and then finally.
I m just going to take it with my nikon. Z7 she s going to take off this pete design strap. If you ever looking for a strap. This is a fantastic strap to get peak design.
It s just makes it really easy to take it on and off your camera..
Now these are a bit of a pain in the make a bit for jangling noise. Not the best review in the world. But it just makes it easy to set your strap on and off. And you don t really want your strap on when you re on your tripod.
Because otherwise your camera is just going to move around and it s not going to be good that because you re going to get movement and then it s not going to be sharp your image. I m sorry so started making this video just wanting to find out whilst. I had the 50 are just what the fuji xt3. The z7 and the 50 are would be like when compared together.
But then i thought i like printing. So why not create a video about how big you can print with an aps c. A full frame and a medium format camera. So that s what i m gonna do so i printed things at all sorts of different sizes.
A three a two and then really big as well fifty inches wide. So i m going to talk a little bit more about that and we can have a look at some of the prints. So it was it was an okay morning. It wasn t fantastic and in fact.
All the time that i had the gfx. The weather was just a bit sort of cloudy and overcast so it was difficult for me to really test the dynamic range. So you may have noticed that i m in a different room. And that s mainly because the prints that i m gonna get later are so big they just wouldn t fit on my table in my usual studio where i record it so welcome to my dining room and i ll surely tell you a little bit about print sizes.
Because if you look at the sizes of the files that come out of the. Camera then the pixel dimensions of the fuji. Xt3 is around about 6200. Pixels and the z7 and the 50 are are both the same around about 8400.
Pixels on the long edge that the 50 are is just slightly higher. Because it s a different aspect ratio crop. So it s extra pixels come at the top and bottom of the image. Which is interesting if you like that type of crop.
But really on that on the on the on the horizontal dimension. You don t get any more pixels. Now all the images that i ve taken i ve taken at the same comparable focal length. I ve always shot on the lowest iso on the cameras and i ve tried to shoot on what i perceive to be the best f stop for that lens to ensure that i can get everything in focus from to back.
And that s why i shot fairly wide open really because i wanted to try and get focused throughout the scene. So this first one as you can see is fairly dull. But when you try to take lots of the images like this on three different cameras and vlog you can excuse me. It s fairly tricky so one of them is taken on my fuji xt3.
These are these are a3 sized images and just. But anybody doesn t know a3 a4. Etc. Then a4.
Is about 12 inches. A3. Is about 16 inches. And a2 is about 24 inches.
On the longest edge first of all these are both a3 images. So you can see that one is the fuji xt3 and one is the gfx 50 are so you know looking at these images. And i can look fairly close up. It s very very very difficult to tell the difference between them you can start to see the edges.
Because the lens isn t good i m going to talk a lot more about lenses. But the lens isn t isn t quite as good on this as the amazing lens on the 50 r. But even when you really inspect these you know the prints are too small to be able to really notice that resolution difference. So yeah.
There isn t a big difference at input and nick on in here because i didn t think there s any point to show that the aps c..
And the medium format. Which is either either range. So next let s have a look at these two prints. So i ll do the same way around this one at the top is the fuji.
This is the 50 r. Obviously. This is now printed at a 2 rather than those were printed at a 3. Now what s interesting now i ll just sort of get down here so i can see them as you can start to very very slightly notice the difference between between the images.
It s not so noticeable in the center. So if i just looked in the center. Here of the in the center of the fuji. It s pretty much as good as the 50 are you if you get really close you can probably just about tell a difference.
The 50 yard. The tonal definition here and i did a video as well on the review of the 50 are on dp reviews channel. I talked about this but the tonal representation. There is really good and also here on on the xt.
3. Which is an aps c. Sensor. I quite like i quite like it.
But it s getting soft towards the edge. It s a 10 to 24 millimeter lens this and it does get very soft towards towards the edges you can really notice. It here on on the two walker s here that have just sat to admire this view by the way. This isn t no sun.
It s just the sun haven t risen yet this was pre sunrise. But you know fast and sort of here you can t tell a difference. It s just really impossible to tell the difference right. It s time to bring out the big prints just over here one second now there really are big prints sort of just give you an idea the length of them is what 3 4 of me now.
I didn t include all the sky on it because i didn t think there was any point it just make them even more or manageable. And thanks to photo speed for printing. These out have a short notice as well they did a really great job of them so these are printed on exactly the same technology as i printed on the same paper as well as the other ones and again. I printed 3 1.
Which was taken with the fuji xt3. One with the z7 along with the 50 yard. Okay. So i m just going to move those out just a little bit.
And this is the 50 are here this is the xt 3. Here and i m going to show you the nickel one in a minute. But i wanted to show you that again the extremes. The first thing to say is you know when you stand back again you can t really see a huge amount a difference because when you start to look at bigger print.
You don t tend to look at them. So close. So you know you look at them from further away. And that s why the a number of pixels per inch.
Which is when for close up viewing is usually 300 ppi is what most people sort of quote or what you should print your your images. But that s good for when you printing it in a book or something where you re looking at it really closely but actually go bigger and bigger and bigger. I think you can drop that down a little bit and and actually if we d have just gone by that exact rule. We should have only be able to print a picture sort of this big about 33 inches for that for the 50 r.
But obviously i ve gone whole to 50 inches. Here now when you start to get close. Though. Oh my god this print looks.
So i am so impressed with this this resolution on this camera on the 350 are you can go. And what it is it s the lenses the lenses are just so so good and i really noticed that when i compared it to them to my z7. But you can go right to the edges and see really great detail and you know down here. Where we ve got these grasses and it s just it just looks absolutely amazing really impressed i mean the the detail and the shadow here as well where it was particularly difficult to get the exposure right and it s pulling out the detail really nicely and detailing shadows off often quite difficult and goes a bit muddy sometimes.
Which is what happens with the fuji xt3 now i was actually surprised if i m honest. I d be quite happy with this this image from the fuji on my wall. But when you get close. I think it breaks down really it starts to get too soft you look at it and you you just crave him for a little bit more detail you can see around the sheep.
So i ll just bring this in here. You can see about around the sheep here this bridge. There s just no brick date detail. But on the on here you can see all the brick detail so at this distance.
It s good. But when you get close you start to lose that detail and you really lose it at the edge is where the lens. Just is just nowhere near as good as the lens on the 50 are now in fact. If i just get rid of that and then we look at we get the food.
The nick on out. So this is now the nick on warm. Well that s a bit of a different game now if if you look in this area here. Then this area.
I think the fuji and the 50 are very similar so you know full frame and medium format. Very similar gain if you look in the middle here there s really not a lot of difference. I mean don t forget that images that come out of this are the same horizontal dimension. So you sort of expect that but where that the nikon goes down and this was with a 16 to 35 millimeter lens with the adapter the adapter doesn t make any difference to image quality.
I saw the same when i shot on an 8 10 and 850. But at the edges you can see in this corner. Here. It s very soft and you ve really got to watch the the corners with with those lenses again in this corner.
It s not quite as soft as this corner. But it s not it s not great the bottom doesn t seem too bad. But these corners are on great and then the top corners aren t great as well on the clouds so it s just going to bit soft whereas on the full on the medium format wow. It just looks amazing.
However and i haven t printed this big. But i ve just put these out of the way when i look. I i was interested in that so i thought i ll try the new zed lens at 24 to 70 lens and these. Two images here are taken on that of that scene one with the 50 are wands.
Which was the 50 yards. This one at the bottom. And this is my nikon now this was taken with the 24 to 70 f4 zed lens and that is so sharp. It is so so sharp and to sum up a little bit.
What this has taught me is that you perhaps shouldn t get too carried away with resolution. You know certainly if we re talking just going up to a to sort of this sides and we were looking at this print here from from the fuji. Then you know i d be perfectly happy with that and i am happy with it i know i am. My parents taken with a fuji xd and now the xt3 a and the fine.
But i m going to be starting to sell prints that are bigger that go up to maybe 50 inches. So i want to make sure that i ve got the technology that will allow me to do that and i believe i ve got the camera. I think that s fine. But i think lenses are something that i really really need to think about now and really try and test some lenses for edge sharpness.
Because i want to get this 50 are quality on my lenses and i think with that 24 to 72 millimeter lens. I ve got on my neck on there was one it was one corner that was a little soft. But it was so good. I was so impressed with it and i think if i d say anything to anybody just go out and invest in lenses spending money on lenses.
Don t worry about the technology of your camera as long as it s you know..
It s reasonably good you ve got 24 25. 26. Megapixel camera. You re going to be able to print big.
There s no doubt about it. But what you re going to lose. It is in the real soft nature of those lenses maybe at the edges maybe in the middle. You know maybe it might not work so well at f 2 or f.
22. But it will be the lens that will make the biggest difference to your print. I hope you enjoyed that i sort of escalated into something that i probably didn t think. It was going to be when it first started out.
But i think it was quite interesting really and i think it shows that you can print. Actually you know some quite big images with you know what on deemed to be really high resolution. Cameras and on that i ve got two images that i just wanted to share with you i ve just put them on my website as new portfolio images. So the first one is this one both both prints.
Sky. And this is quite an interesting one because talking about a lower resolution because this is actually taking my drone. It s a composition which i think i showed in one of my other videos of six images all stacked together. It was a stunning stunning morning.
I didn t want to include much the sky. But ah it just looks so good printed. I m so pleased with it really really does the detail down here is amazing. I mean i think the resultant file was i was actually about 60 megapixels anyway so i ll put that one on and i ve also put this one on which is actually one of my favorite images from the year from last year.
Which was this green stone that we spotted on a workshop. And it was a fairly dull overcast day. But again this was on my fuji xt3 with a ten to twenty four lens and actually looking at the corners. Here.
It is a little bit soft here. But you can just doesn t make any difference. So that the image can either your eye just sort of focuses or pin to here. And there s so much to say it really does look good so these are both on my website.
Now and talking about my website. I just wanted to mention squarespace who kindly sponsored this week s episode and without them i couldn t do these videos. But not just that i could i couldn t do my website. I have very limited time you know we re doing a lot of videos and running workshops.
Etc. And it makes it super super easy. It s not difficult for me to say that and promote their products because i absolutely love them. And yeah.
It made it really easy to put these on my online shop. And it s a great way to start selling things as well and create a super simple online shop where you can take a credit card. So if you re looking to start a trial with a squarespace then you can go to squarespace comm. And if you re ready to either get a domain or a website.
Then you can get 10 off by going to nya or using the offer code. Nigel anyway. That s it i ve had a great time. And i m now off tortora done in scotland to do some wild printing.
It s going to be interesting okay until next sunday bye. ” ..
