Hmm... so the above photos are outside your grain/noise tolerance?

I do not really know - it is not possible for me to make accurate evaluations based on jPeg files shared over the internet. Plus, there may have been some type of processing applied, such as jPeg in-camera defaults.

The only way for me to know if an image is within my grain/noise tolerance is if I can see a RAW-based file that has not had any noise reduction applied.

Pretty much anything can be made to look good if we're only viewing little 1200 pixel long jPeg versions of the image.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

There is no such thing as a raw only viewable file though. Any software you use to view the raw file is showing you a rendered graphical representation with some basic filters/rules already applied. Also, I have provided larger than 1200px views on POTN, along with 100% crops.

I also go with the same mindset others have about lenses where they may not like 3rd party and only use Canon glass. Canon wrote DPP, and I use DPP instead of 3rd party tools for raw conversions. Why would I have a view about Canon glass, and not have the same view about the processing of their raw files? :)

Your POTN title makes that quite clear.

That is why I used the term 'RAW-based', and not just RAW.

But I'm also thrilled to get anything not blurry/decent at higher iso.. I still remember when all we had was 1600 speed film for the masses...

And some of us remember when the top B&W film was ASA 1250 (Royal-X pan, but not in 135 format where ASA 400 was the top unless you push processed Tri-X in the darkroom), and the top color film was ASA 160. You guys are spoiled! :-P

Okay, here is a JPG directly from the raw via DPP, no Photoshop/Adobe post processing.

With just 2 steps of post processing, a lum. NR action and then some USM, the image is quite clean. It just depends on your tolerance of noise, but I can state that if you print these types of images, noise will disappear when the noise is that small.

ISO 4000 is cleaner than this yet obviously.

I totally agree, sometimes all the gritching that happens about noise, and shadow lifting, DR and crop vs ff and I remember how limited it was and think of how spoiled we are now.. so many good photographers did so much more with all the limitations of so much less!

I remember shooting with my Canon A1 ( I still have it - haven't used it in years) but we could only shoot in 100,200,400 & 800 in the day. So, now we are shooting over 6400. To me you will get noise.

3M under the Scotch brand did release an ASA 1000 slide film in about 86 I think it was. I remember getting a couple of rolls to use alongside the Kodachrome 25 I usually used when I went on honeymoon to Tunisia in March 87. I got it for the evening "traditional entertainment" show with a meal that are so common in such touristy places. The film was OK as long as you didn't mind grain the size of golf balls. It made Ektachrome 400 look really good. What was worse was IIRC it was a daylight balanced film only, so you ended up losing a stop for the colour correction filter when shooting indoors under tungsten light.

Ive been using lightroom 5.7 for ages with both the 7DII and 5DIII and never really found it hard to sort out noise issues. The difference I see in the two camera is mainly the colours seem better from 5DIII and of course when wanting that lovely blur from shallow DOF the full frame is great. However the 7DII seems sharper a lot of the time using the same lens . Not sure why. I find 7DII the more versatile camera

I use a 6D, and purchased an 80D several months ago. With the exception of using my fast(er) primes, I am starting to use the 80D for almost everything. Versatile. Good word. I just picked up an 18-135 USM, for my 80D. My 24-105 is now for sale. My 6D is now a prime-shooter.
