DxOMark develops “realistic” bust for selfie camera tests

DxOMark has a reputation for testing cameras. The methods used in their labs are very detailed and meticulous but I think they’ve gone overboard with their latest camera testing tool.

Meet Sienna, a “realistic” (read: freaky looking) bust created by the lab for its selfie camera tests. DxOMark says Sienna allows them to produce repeatable tests when evaluating cameras to ensure accuracy in producing the result.

To capture as much detail as possible, they enlisted the help of a movie special effects studio to 3D scan a model as a base. The hard base is then covered with modelling clay and detailed to mimic soft tissue.

And the result is what you see in the video. Watch it and tell me it’s not freaky.
