Owners advice please;

For top quality still life images and landscapes etc, is it best to shoot the 5d/3 at 50 or 100 iso..?

Any advice welcome.

I think you are going to get many different answers here.
Theoretically it should be 50 and would be if film, but due to the way digital cameras work, some will say 100, I have heard the ultimate ISO for Canon Camera's is 160 iso, but I have not seen anything that shows me what is best.

May be some have done studies in large prints of it :)

I like 100. It works well, I've read somewhere I forgot, that ISO 50 was more noisier then ISO 100. But as stated above it's a matter of preference.

From what I've seen in my images, ISO 50 is in fact more noisy than ISO100. So I usually stick to 100 unless I want a really long shutter in relatively bright light when I don't have a ND filter with me.

i would say 100, i believe iso 50 is software made, not actual 50.

100. 50 is an "extended" ISO and has less DR than 100. I use it only when I absolutely need the effect of doubling my exposure time and it's the only option. The reason someone said 160 is some canon cameras use multiples of 160 as their true base ISOs and all others are either pushed or pulled in camera w/o you really knowing it. The 7D did this and it was cleaner at 160 than 100. I haven't tested that but 100 on the 5D3 is fine.

If 160's are better, they really should have a mode that uses multiples of 160 only. I'm going to try it sometime and see if I see a difference.

The 5D3 files have some excellent potential for recovery if over-exposed. I took these last night of my engine for a detailing forum and as well as testing out the HDR features (which would really well) these shots were both recovered from the +2 or +3EV overexposed shots which had to be dialed way down. Then I pushed shadows either +80 or +100 and some level adjustments.

Result? Excellent DR. Click on the files below to view at full resolution. Taken with my Samyang 14mm.

I love this picture... You must have used filters with the 15 sec exposure time right?

Where can I find a good set of dark filters?

Matt: Look up Lee ND filters or Cokins. Not cheap though!
