comment Are Nikon DSLR sensors actually better than Canon's?
btw. the normalised "print" scores are 8 megapixels, not 5. That is however inconsequential, they could have chosen 12 or 16, the relative scores would be identical. This normalisation is actually less misleading, but if you want you can click the "screen" option to see un-normalised measurements. The key thing with DxO Mark is to ignore the "scores" and look at the actual measurements, there is a lot of data there to help you achieve the cleanest RAW file, which incidentally has nothing to do with shooting in low light or downsizing to 5 megapixels.

Not quite right, the reason Nikon cameras score higher is much lower read noise at base ISO (and better colour reproduction which skews the sport score). Low light noise is very similar between cameras.

The low light score is skewed by the minimum colour reproduction requirement, nothing to do with on chip NR. All you have to do with DxO mark is ignore the "scores" and look at the measurements, which tell a pretty accurate story when it comes to noise (though it does ignore PRNU). Comparing camera JPEGs is by far the least accurate way to compare sensors.

comment Slideshow software for handling 1000000+ photos
Can't you copy a small proportion of your images to another folder at random and then run the slideshow from there? That way the software wouldn't need to be able to handle so many images.
