Ok after last weeks noise fest I figured that I would let the camera do some more work for me. So instead of shooting in "M" shot I shot at 3200iso and used "T" set to 800 as well 2/3 positive on EC and let the camera adjust the aperature for the varied lighting that was at this week's tournament. Seemed like the nosie is quite a bit better at the same iso settings from the prior weekend.

Nice job! Some are tad bit noisy imo, but the colors in the first look great! I can see the difference Lightroom 3 does a really good job with removing noise, when I shoot in the gym at ISO 1600/3200 It takes care of most of the noise..

Any time you over-expose a bit, then back off in PP, you will have less noise than the other way around. If the light is that varied that you can't consistently over-expose on M, then your technique should work.

I might prefer to go with AV, and perhaps the same +2/3 EC. I'd rather keep a very shallow DOF for sport shots, and let the shutter speed vary (as long as it stays faster than 1/500). Either way would probably work though.

At 800 it was shooting mostly at 2.0 or 1.8. The higer ss keeps the dof in check.

I'm still seeing the same noise. I am really interested in what is causing this because of our similar setups. I suspect this noise is being introduced in post processing. How much are you increasing exposure when editing these photos? Are you doing any sharpening? Are you cropping a lot? I would expect there to be at least a little more noise in the dark blues and blacks, these have lots of noise in the skin. Look at the girl on the right's thighs on picture #3.

Good framing on these, I like that you are shooting tight.

Just for reference, this is a shot from yesterday: f/2.8, ISO 3200, 1/500 and I still had to push the exposure 0.69 in Lightroom. Even when pushing the exposure, the noise is not that rough.

Just sharpened and cropped a bit. Sharpening in Apperature set to 1.0 and 1.25. If any exposure adjustment all just very slight.

I'm stumped. Do they look better in aperture than they do here on the webpage? Maybe they are getting exported at a lower quality?

It's possible, check my smug mug albums at www.jeffbolletphotogra​phy.com (external link) Let me know what you think there. This 1D MK III is new to me maybe it needs some type of adjustment?
