I am not disagreeing with you, but I'm curious though, and would respectfully like to hear a detailed technical explanation if you would be able to provide one. Do you have a better way to reduce noise or perform these tests?
I think this goes beyond DSP... think it also involve demosaicing and sampling techniques.
Anyway, they did not mention how they sample the noise as well... so far we just take their charts as correct (even for all those cam reviews)... so should we doubt this chart? It's up to individual to be discerning... juz like their current G10 review... suddenly every Canon P&S owners doubt their reviews and suddenly all the LX3 users agrees with reviewers. :bsmilie:
