I attended my 6-year-old son's Christmas play yesterday. Found that to get acceptable shutter speeds with my 70-200 f/2.8L IS, I had to bump to ISO 3200. Didn't want to do it, but I figured a noisy shot is still better than no shot at all.

I was impressed!

I posted a 6400 and 3200 sample in my thread.

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=418317

Remember posting a full size cropped down to 800 pixels or less won't prove any points about ISO noise, you have to view at 100% in your favorite photo program, then crop a small section out, and post those. You could probably shoot at 12800 and have the pictures look reasonable in their whole form resized down to fit the forum requirements.

Here are some other neat tests performed by others!

Absolutely - web-sized will almost remove it all... but it's still amazing to me!

Here's the pano, un-resized (it's big!)

40D 3200 is very usuable definitely! Yes, that was quite large! ;)

Thank you for sharing, looks like a fun and cute presentation!

You could easily manipulate the 2 pictures so all of the lines match up.

I cropped the original pano jpg a bit, and took at a sliver to show your noise levels, along with some post-processing, just to show what can be done.

Final results, but sized down to 800.... yellow box is the crop. Again, at the normal family-printed sizes, you would never notice the post processing that took out some detail due to the noise, but there are options to take 40D high ISO and try to correct them a bit.

I posted this not long ago... ISO 3200.

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


I also wanted to test the noise on both the 30D and the 40D, so I shot the same setup at home.

30D full-res image (external link)
40D full-res image (external link)

Both camera are set to "Neutral" no Noise Reduction. They are intentionally a bit underexposed, to bring out more "noise". I also found a stuck pixel that I did later manage to remove by a great thread here. :) The difference in color might be due to sloppy set of custom white balance.

Nope... Wasn't planning for ISO 3200 and should have gotten that set up!

What did you use for the NR?

Thanks for the suggestion! (that's why we all love forums like POTN, right?

Here's the scaled down version and unresized version (the link) - original first, noiseware pro with more-or-less defaults

Original:

Unresized: http://www.jeuch.com …33-3834-FULL_filtered.jpg (external link)

Even in the scaled down version, I can see a bit of a difference. At 50%, the quality is amazing. At 100%, though, it's obvious I was pushing everything to its limits!

Thanks again - I think I'll be noise-processing external to DPP from now on!

ISO 3200 is very useable and can really salvage bad lighting. (I also posted this on another thread) 40D and Canon 70-200 f/4.0 (200mm, 1/640 @ f/4.0)

I usually shoot Football at ISO 800, but it was getting dark so I needed to use ISO 3200. I didn't use the in camera noise reduction. I used "Noiseware"afterwards.

Straight from camera... No noise reduction:

after the Noiseware reduction, did you go back in and sharpen?

Sorry for all the questions, just trying to learn as I just got my 40D and love the high ISO/low noise factor!
