How higher ISO 30D and 7D compare
May 21, 2013

Does anyone know how the quality of higher ISO 30D and 7D compare (raw, not jpg)? I use the 30D at ISO 1600 and 3200 quite a bit. Everyone always wants one more stop, but the two extra stops in the 7D would be very useful.

I know it depends on a lot of factors, I'm just trying to get an idea...

  • Do you think the 7D ISO 6400 has about the same quality as the 30D ISO 1600?
  • Or is it more like the 7D ISO 1600 is about the same quality as the 30D ISO 1600 but you can go up to 12800 ISO, with even worse quality than the 30D ISO 3200?

It's really useful when review sites show the same photos taken with different cameras, but I can only find that going back to the 50D (can compare ISO quality for 7D and 50D, not the 30D). Thanks for any info / opinions.
