Default 7D - ISO 12800, how?

I've tried looking around but can't find the answer, probably because it's a simple question...

How do you use the ISO 12800[H] option? It's usually greyed out when I try to access it?

If it's like my 50D, it's in one of the custom function (C.Fn) options. You have to enable the extra ISO modes.

You also (IIRC) have to turn OFF Highlight Tone Priority...

set Custom function 1-3 to ON to enable ISO expansion, It's on page 206 of your 7D instruction booklet

Here's one. Tricky light gives funny white balance, though. I have manipulated one in DPP to make it better, but not uploaded that to the web album yet. The origin is a full size RAW image, converted by DPP.

She tried to camouflage herself among the bushes, to fool the AF, but the AF found her anyway.
Had nothing to do with ISO 12800, though. I think the images you referred to used ISO 3200.
