If I want to compare different cameras or lenses, what properties should the photos that I use have? And what should I do in order to get the most information?
I can think of the following, but probably it's just a subset:
- Good lighting (how do I define that?)
- Proper exposition and manual settings;
- Same aperture and field of view (the focal length might differ) - is there a "scientific way to do this?";
- Scene with good amount of details, colors and contrasts;
- Use of a tripod (?)
Also, what can I do if I want typical lens flaws (distortion, chromatic aberration) to pop out?
