Canon ESO 50D at ISO 6400- Ain't bad at all
Jun 15, 2012

In fact it's quite good. Better than my Pentax K20D, for sure (I didn't expect that it would be better, nice surprise).

Removed Chroma via ACR (10% on the slider zero detail), and ran it through my Topaz Denoise at 4% + Debanding. Hardly any detail loss what so ever, images are completely useable at 11x14 processed this way.

Even without any noise reduction the image is totally fine, some grain, faint banding but didn't show on an 8x10 print, didn't print higher since this was just a quick test.

Pretty damn impressive camera. Sure you have to pay more attention to your exposure than some newer cameras at higher ISO's, but it's no deal breaker at all.
