All possible image sizes

Hi all!

I develop a SQL camera database, with lot of technical data, which is include into an image analysis software.

Among all these data, I list all the possible image sizes that a camera/lens can produce but an exhaustive source is somewhat hard to find.

Any insight or idea where I can find a good data source?

Thanks !


It can be hard enough just finding image samples direct from the camera (no DP Review, if it says Adobe in the metadata, it's not direct from the camera).  And even then, it's not likely to contain all the image sizes the camera can take.

I think the only way to get (semi-)accurate information would be a heck of a lot of work scraping the net for accurate technical details.  Probably looking for PDFs of the manuals for any camera you're looking up.
* Did you read FAQ #3 and use the command listed there?
* Please use the Code button for exiftool code/output.
* Please include your OS, Exiftool version, and type of file you're processing (MP4, JPG, etc).

It would be a lot of work, but I would check the specifications pages for each camera either on the manufacturer's web site, or in detailed reviews.  For example, for the Nikon D500 specifications on the Nikon web site we have:

(L) 5,568 x 3,712
(M) 4,176 x 2,784
(S) 2,784 x 1,856
1.3x Crop Mode
(L) 4,272 x 2,848
(M) 3,200 x 2,136
(S) 2,128 x 1,424
Photographs taken during movie recording at a frame size of 3,840 x 2,160: 3,840 x 2,160 Photographs with image area of DX taken during movie recording:
(L) 5,568 x 3,128
(M)  4,176 x 2,344
(S)  2,784 x 1,560
Photographs with image area of 1.3x taken during movie recording:
(L)  4,272 x 2,400
(M)  3,200 x 1,800
(S)  2,128 x 1,192
