I quite like the quality of the noise as ISO 25600.

I have to agree.

I have to agree.

Not only is it a ground breaking High ISO monster, the quality of the noise is more appealing. Fantastic!

With a top ISO of 204000 I would have expected it to be cleaner at 25000 just my opinion.

I remember shooting 1600 film and pushing to 3200 to get VERY grainy photos. These cat images at 25600 look very usable to me. Impressive.

It looks like there may be less banding. I don't mind noise, just hate the lines.

I took a few "first light" shots and wanted to play around with the ISO performance just to see what was up and to get a feel for what I can and can't use.


I'm going to preface this with a few caveats:

  1. I don't really have that much free time - wife/kids/job/etc.
  2. I had a new camera screaming to be played with and learned about
  3. I had to deal with Adobe updates to get CS5 (yeah, I know) to recognize the new 1Dx CR2
  4. I had to reorganize my Pelican to hold the new body
  5. My car overheated after I mentioned that the contents of the trunk were worth 7.5x the value of the car itself
What all that means is that I couldn't find the time to hunt down any ducks, so cats it is. :P

Ours was napping in her bed, under a table, in a relatively dark room. I used the 1Dx and 85L II wide open at ISO 3200, 6400, 12800, 25600 and 51200 to snap some rough shots. Apologies for the awkward angles but she wanted to sleep so I was using one hand to get her attention and holding the camera with the other... poorly.

I used CS5 to open the RAW files, saved them as .jpg (highest quality) and then cropped a 1024x1024 section out of each. After that I resized to 1024x683 and saved that .jpg with highest quality.

3200:

http://www.vintage-computer.com …1Dx/Samples/256​00Crop.jpg (external link)

(51200 in the next post)

I did no post processing on these other than to up the exposure a bit in Photo RAW. (I don't know why yet, but all of the images were about 2/3-1 stop underexposed. Operator error for sure.)

The raw files for those who want to play:

Thanks for posting these Erik. I appreciate it. My EIZO monitors approve. :) The 3200 and 6400 look real good! I'm surprised at how much detail is retained at 25600. From what I can see, it looks like there's no banding.

If you're not impressed with the ISO performance then I would suggest picking up a 5D III and call it a day. ;)

I've come to disregard the naysayers about the 1DX, not because I own it, but rather it really doesn't make any sense to me. Why disparage this camera? The image quality, the features, menus, AF quality, etc.... have all been amazing thus far, at leas to me. Are we really being picky about the quality of an ISO 25600 image? (not to mention it's actually impressively good)
I've been biting my tongue and allowing everyone (that doesn't own one) to be excessively nitpicky about the 1DX, but I'm just wondering why the negativity. The only thing negative about it has been the delay. It really is the best Canon body to date. If it's the 1D size that people can't get over, that's one thing (and I actually prefer it), but it has really set itself apart regarding everything else.

I know this is a 1DX "owners" thread, but since I also know there are many here that don't yet have one, someone is selling one here... https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1206293

Chris, I would ignore those that say it's not worth the money you paid. The same goes for when Canon released the 1Ds III and 5D MK II. It was never ending arguing that the 5D II was inferior due the banding and AF. Now, it's the 1D X vs 5D III. :) Go figure, eh?

How bright is the rink :eek:
How on earth do you manage such a high shutter speeds with an iso of only 640 ?

Most of the rinks I shoot at f/2.8 and iso 3200 I can only manage between 1/500 and 1/800

Hi Chewy,

Yes, it is a very bright arena. You may notice splashes of light on the ice. To get a better idea of what it looks like, here is a pano I did last year of the Ice Palace at West Edmonton Mall where I shot those hockey pics:

(this pano was made from 138 images, shot with a 5D MKII and 24-70)

Jim

I know it's worth the money I paid. That was never in question. And for others, I'm sure they will go back and forth to try and figure out if it's worth the money they're thinking about paying. Is all the negativity regarding price? I can't imagine the price is all that surprising. I get the feeling the negative comments regarding the body are about the quality of the camera itself, which is silly, since all of the negative comments are coming from those that don't own the camera. But I guess anyone that bought it will post positive comments anyway.
We know that the 1DX has better image quality and features than any other bodies to date. Are people really getting worked up about whether it's 1 stop better, 2 stops better, 2/3 stops better? Have people been on the fence about buying and opted against buying because it's only 1-2 stops better than the 5DIII? It's better. But really, it's just a different camera. The image quality is better (how much is subjective) but there are also many other better features, the most significant being the AF tracking superiority. Some will probably say it's not worth it for wedding photogs, and that may be the case if budgets are keeping them from buying 2 of these, but if they were the same price as the 5DIII, I'm sure there would be no argument. If that's the case, why knock the 1DX for anything other than price?... which in my opinion (and not my wife's) is pretty worth it.
