Is there another camera on the market that has the ISO capabilities of the 5D mkiii ?

I'm confused...if it's taken in near darkness where is the shine on the couch and the shadow of his arm and head coming from?

If you used a flash, then it's not near darkness and the high ISO test is flawed.

Umm, isn't 2.8 and 25,600 ISO fairly dark? More importantly in low light there's still going to be shadows isn't there? Imagine your bedroom in darkness with some light from the hall - the light is directional and will cast a shadow even if very dark in the room.

The 1D4 comes pretty darn close, IMO, however in AI Servo, it wasn't really landing this shot. In One Shot, though, it did alright, it thought about it for a second, then snapped onto her. This is a straight raw to JPG conversion, then an 8x10 300dpi crop from that image.

I post processed this one a bit, but the scene was a bit darker.

There's no flash, that was the reflection from the tv. This was just to see if it would actually take the picture. It was a lot darker than what the picture looks. I guess the really high ISO amplified the light in the room, and made the picture turn out. Having had a 40d, 50d, and a 7d, I know its hard to believe. They can't start to compare when it comes to ISO. It's hard to imagine the ISO getting much better, because you would be in complete darkness. Leaving nothing to take a picture of.


Ever changing.

Looks like there was more than a little light in a hallway in that shot. Looks like a flash to my eyes.

Here's an image taken at 25600 1/8 F4 SOOC

Pretty good, but not something many will use much. They do clean up better than the MKII images.


I sure hope this isn't the new fascination for all the MKIII owners...I don't really look forward to pages of high ISO shots for the next 3 years. :)

If you want to get technical, The light was coming from a 58" TV from about 12 feet away. But i know how dark it was in the room, Because I remember thinking, holy crap! it focused and took the picture! why would I post the picture and then lie about it? I cleaned it up a bit with light room, but I do that with all my pictures.

Ah, don't let folks like that get to you. I believe you. The last pic I posted from the 1D4 was where my daughter was at the end of my basement behind a desk with no light other than ambient light that reflects off white walls from a light source at the other end of the basement. It was quite dark and is the same exposure as your image.

I think I will just keep my 1D4, I was hoping for a bit more from the 5D3, because I could sell the 1D4 and have cash left over getting the 5D3. However, I am just not convinced that I would get anything of improvement for what I shoot, and I might as well just keep the 1D at this point. I want to see how everything pans out for the 5D3 over the next few months anyways, from software to firmware.

I only really need high ISO when I need shutter speeds to stop the action. I shot quite a bit at 25600 this past trip to the water park, to try to stop water droplets, etc.

Not suggesting you lied, just looked for clarification as you wouldn't expect to see a shadow in a dark room.

You clarified it...time to move on.

There was nothing to be clarified. The original post says the boy was watching TV. If you are anything more than a complete novice photographer and couldn't figure out the light source for that photo with the information provided.... Well, I don't know what to say other than I hope your primary issue is reading comprehension because otherwise it is understanding light, and if you don't understand how light comes from a TV you really shouldn't be doing photography.
