I can't believe how little grain you've got with the 7D @ 1600 ISO! I've can't push my 7D over 1000 ISO without it going to @#$%&!

Thank you all very much. Helps to keep me going. That and my obsession for getting that shot.


Jeff - Those evening grosbeak shots are outstanding!! I do wish they would come this far south.

Wow! What an amazing looking bird, Robert. It's a Heron all right, but the colours on it are just wild! Beautiful!

My photos of birds are hit or miss at ISO 1600; I usually lose the feather details. With this image I only have the LR noise slider at 20, which is low for my processing. I think a couple of things helped here. It is exposed to the right, with the LR exposure slider brought down to -0.40 and the Tone Control "Lights" slider at -45. The background water is bright enough that noise isn't an issue, and noise is hidden well in the out-of-focus rocks. Also, the light source is from the setting sun which, although dim, acts as a point source and creates shadows that show some feather detail.


C&C always welcome, editing allowed

I miss the original post but i shoot my 7D at ISO 1600 comfortably all the time. Those duck photos I posted a couple pages back are all ISO 1600. I will go to 3200 if I really have to, it doesnt really scare me and I typically get good results.
