...Please, make sure you post them at 50%, 75% or 100% size (pixel-count wise). As can be seen on this thread (filled with samples, etc.) there is no point, whatsoever, in looking at tiny, small high-ISO images.

Love,

PIX

I'm really too busy to single them out. Personally, I'm of the opinion that the camera doesn't really matter much. Noise is about aligning your bodies energy field with your camera. If you are out of sync then you are going to get noisy pictures.

Whatever it is, you better share with the rest of us. ;):p

My dear friend:

EDIT: You got wrong the ISo speed, Bollan. The scale is like this: ISo 6400, 8000 (+0.30ev), 10000 (+0.70) and 12,800 (+1.00ev). Your tiny/weenie shot up-there is ISo8000, which is even easier. This entire range is also supported, step by step, in FlexNR, btw.

Let us raise the standards in that little forum you keep going back and forth, as we will no longer accept 16.5% tiny/weensie samples.

From now on, we will do 50% and 100%, at any ISo speed we may want to capture. I do look forward the first volunteer from such forum ;), but, since we know exactly what we are talking about, here goes our contribution (a great capture at 700mm !!!, courtesy of the super-cool Sevan, and beautifully finished with FlexNR-v2.0):

ISo5000ec, EOS 1D MarkIII (I can already see their faces :cool:):

http://www.pbase.com …/image/11431224​0/original (external link) <= whole frame, web-size
http://www.pbase.com …/image/11431224​1/original (external link) <= MICRO detail, 50%
http://www.pbase.com …/image/11431224​3/original (external link) <= MICRO detail, 100%

Remember: ask for 50% AND 100% views. Almost any current/modern camera is going to look great at 16% of viewing size (and sharp, btw).

Cheers,

PIX

Definetelly agree. If you wish to compare and judge the quality of photo you should look on 100% crop.

I know high ISO is a sensitive issue in the Canon camp right now and rightfully so.

ISO sensitive issue for Canon? That's news to me.


"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".

It turns out that NOT...

Is it really ISO 10,000... good then

...It is not... it is a pretty tiny (but nice-looking) set of ISO6400 +0.30ec samples, shown at 16% size.

Considering the large amount of Noise Reduction that such files receive at full size when processed via CaptureNX2 (Nikon SW), they will definitely look good when shrank and dismembered down to a 16% view size.

There is no occult science in such approach, though.

ISO6400? Where have I been living? My camera tops out at 1,000 ISO, which I used to think was amazing.

I just found out that a professional underwater photographer friend of mine uses a D700, and regularly takes publishable pictures at ISO 6400.


5D & 7D (both gripped), 24-105L, 100-400L, 15-85, 50 f1.8, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 12-24, G10, EX-Z55 & U/W housing, A1+10 lenses, tripods, lighting gear, etc. etc.

Ive been in the Canon camp for 25 years but when you see shots from the Nikon D700 at ISO10.000 it really makes you wonder.

Check this out http://photocamel.com …deo-d700-iso-10000-a.html (external link)

Can 5D MKII or 1D MKIII come near this?

I have a Nikon friend who I showed these pics. She does a lot of rodeo photography, and much of it is at night. She went crazy for the pictures, but, like several here has posted, she wanted to know if it was real.

It is a little hard to believe.
