I know another thread about the camera.

Today I went into Pictureline here in SLC to give it a try. I wanted to see what all the hype was about. So I asked to view one and put in my own card to look at the samples when I got home.

First let me say the camera feels very very solid in your hand. I have pretty darn big hands, yet it felt good in my hand. Felt solid.

The button layout was quite different, it took me a bit of scanning just to figure out how to turn it on. I like the ease of going from camera to video. The layout once you get used to it is nice.

LCD, solid. Colors are accurate.

So anyways from the start I jacked the ISO up to 6400 and shot away, going from 6400 to 1600. This is my opinion of the camera.....

Image quality is solid, I would almost say as good as the Mark III. High ISO shots look exactly like the Mark III in term of grain, but even then maybe a touch more smaller. A good grain to the images.

ISO 5000 looks like ISO 1600 on a 50D. It is on Par with the Mark III ISO wise, and the images are much larger as well.

Again this is just my opinion so take it for what it is worth. But if you are on the fence, this camera's image quality is solid.

Good stuff Sauk. What ISO do you think you'd shoot night HS football with on the 7D? Last week's game the 50D was in "H" ISO (first time all year) and the pics were beyond salvage in some cases.

Next year, I'm hoping to get the 1dIiii but would certainly settle for a used 7D if it's up to it as you've indicated. I'd assume there would be a glut of 7Ds on the used market by end of summer next year. Or maybe even a sub-$2k 1DmIII for in the sub $2k range.

Not really picky about the camera, just looking for better results than the 50D gets shooting night football and indoor basketball.

web sized your shots looked great. That aside, I've had mine a week now, and I'm getting some really good looking shots. When you blow up to 100% the grain smacks you in the face. But as noted in the first post, it's smaller than what I was used to in the 40/50D. Seems to clean up easier. At about 8X10 size I have gotten some very decent 6400 iso shots.

i got my 7D a week ago as a upgrade from my 40D and stuck a 24-70L lense on it. i shoot U16 basketball for my sons team. we were in a sports center basketball court the lighting was not great but ok. iso 1600 / F2.8 / shutter 400 pics were alittle underexposed but i use lightroom2.5 to brighten them up i just use the auto correct for WB and Exposure nothing fancy then i run the pics through neat image which is a online download about £25.00 to wash any of the unwanted noise away.
and the results are pretty good infact realy good very pleased with the camers performance...

Maybe instead of just slamming the body you could explain yourself...Have any shots showing the crap quality with EXIF's....?

If you look at the grain of the image it looks about the same. Pretty amazing to be honest. Look I hate looking at 100% crops as I don't think you should to be honest. When I print I almost always downsize to 2400 pixels as that does just about anything and every thing I ever need it to. I am going to purchase the 7D that is for sure

Both Mark III and 7D images are from RAW files with only white balance adjusted

That first one has to be cropped quite a bit right? Otherwise, That noise looks pretty bad to me for 3200 on a MK III

I believe they are both 100% crops. At least that's what he made it sound like in his response.
