I got to shoot another charity event tonight... a comedy fund raiser in a lowly lit theater, and once again, the 1D Mark III comes thru with flying colours (the colours are indeed amazing).

This is right out of Adobe Camera Raw (beta colour profile) with NO additional noise reduction.

Btw, also kudos to the 70-200's Image Stabilisation for making a 150mm (plus 1.3x crop) shot handholdable at 1/60s!

Yup - my 1D III is pretty damn dreamy when it comes to noise at high ISOs. Also has a much more pleasing grain-like noise compared to my 20D, which also makes a big difference imho.

I also find in situations like this, where you have a lot of contrast, the noise really disappears.

For stuff like this, I don't give ISO1600 a second thought... to me it's as usable as ISO200.
Noise doesn't start to creep in until ISO3200, and if you nail the exposure, it's very minor.

With my 1D MK2N, I used to hesitate using ISO1600, or at least I knew that in the back of my mind that if I didn't nail the exposure, some amount of Noise Ninja would be required. ISO3200 was a last resort, and it wasn't just because of the noise... the colour really suffered ... especially the reds. This doesn't happen with the 1D MK3. From Raws I've played with, the D700 and D3 are about 1/2 stop cleaner at ISO3200+ (imho), but the MK3 is still incredible.

Here is a picture taken at ISO3200, 1/60s, underexposed by about 1 stop, recovered in Adobe Camera Raw... no noise reduction.

SO, this is effectively an ISO6400 shot at 1/120sexternal link

With even just a mild run of Ninja, it would be clean as a whistle!

maybe no NR, but way too much highlight recovery... for those cases you need to use photoshop. highlight recovery tends to clip colors a lot. Put a masked layer over the section, clone the color of the arm near it, then change overlay type to "color" not the best looking way, but a lot faster.


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.

That's about equal to my XTi at ISO400 ;)
