Guys, guys.. just to be sure that is no misunderstanding, this was supposed to be a facetious thread. I fully know the benefits of operating at as low an ISO as possible. I was just making the comment that with the 6D having such good high ISO results, it is easy to forget (at least for me) about the shutter speed and just shoot away. It was half in jest, of course.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

With the fantastic high ISO capabilities of the 6D, I find myself paying less attention to my camera settings. Several times over the last few days, I have simply cranked up the ISO to 6400 or 12,800 and shot in Av, not worrying about shutter speed. Layer, I realized I am at 1/500 or 1/1000 sec for a stationary indoor shot! :lol: when I could have dropped the ISO way down.

Anyone else finding themselves guilty of gratuitous use of high ISO simply because, well, they can?

No guilty at all. But I prefer M mode with auto ISO. With dual scroll dial, you can choose the aperture and shutter speed very fast.

^Exactly. It's kinda like manual transmission - I find myself being a much better driver with a manual, a lot more anticipation of traffic, making sure the engine is in the sweet zone for rpm, etc.

not me. i know the 6D can shoot great high ISO but i'm not fond of going too high in the ISO department. i'd rather shoot at a lower ISO with a reasonable shutter speed to get a cleaner and better image to start with.

I see noise artifacts above ISO2000. Softening, smudging, fuzziness in the detail areas.

In good light, it isn't so apparent.

A couple of 12,800 shots with the 6D.. very little noise reduction added. I do more noise reduction at 1600 ISO with my 7D than I did with these shots. ISO is almost an afterthought with this camera.

The 7d at I so 3200 shouldd very close to the 6d at 12800, in raw mode anyways. If you are comparing post processed jpg files by the camera, then I could probably see 3 stops.

With autoiso and minimum shutter speed, it is very hard to make these mistakes. You should look into it TS.

But is it getting the results you really want...or are we just getting lazy and accepting less than optimal results? I know where I sit on this question, hopefully others as well.

It completely depends on what you're shooting and what the intended use is of course. I'm not talking about just accepting less. I'm just saying that if you indeed are getting the results you want at a higher ISO then there's no need to be worried about it.


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.

Now making your screen name the model of camera you were using seems a bit humorous now doesn't it? :)

When/if you ever want to change it to reflect the 6D, there is a thread you can post to where you can ask the mods to change your screen name.

Congrats!

The 6D must have been an impulse purchase, considering that you picked the name just this month! :lol:

I usually shoot every thing in manual. Noise wise indoors in bad light I don't like high ISOs whatever anyone says. Indoors or outdoors when nice ambient (even low) is there then high ISO gives quite nice results.

I found a huge problem with the 6D: I don't own it yet. I'll be ordering in a few days.

:mrgreen:8-) !!
