7d noise. Is this normal?
Mar 24, 2012

Hi All

I have recently moved from a 40d to a 7d and I am a little dissappointed with the noise in the 7d images. I have no read a lot of posts on this subject but I want to check that my images are no noisier than one would expect for a 7d.

Below are 4 test images taken at 100,200,400 and 800 ISO. Taken in RAW and no adjustments at all applied (not even lightroom defaults). Converted to jpg for posting here. Could other 7d users have a look and let me know if the noise is at a level expected of the 7d.

I am not really interested in being told how much less noisy other cameras might be, just whether or not my noise is typical of the 7d.

Thanks very much.
