Canon have a habit of choosing default settings to appeal to the consumer. In their camcorders, it's all saturation and sharpness to the maxxx. On their high ISO shots, NR is cranked right up to smooth out the luminosity speckling at the expense of obscuring any fine detail.
EV=3.24 or 3
Unimpressive. Refined "watercolor noise reduction", that's all. I'll stay with the Mk2 and check out the D800.
I beg to differ. The high ISO is really, really good. It doesn't really get overly noisy until you push it into H1 and H2.
Unfortunately, this is a pre-production camera so we're never really sure if that will be what the production cameras are like. Sometimes, they make the production ones even better, so who knows....
For someone trying to photograph crepuscular wildlife the idea of being able to shoot 6400ISO as a matter of course for print media is pretty jolly impressive, believe me!Of course we don't know how the D800 will compare when downsized to 22mp - a kind of virtual binning, in a sense.But we sure are spoilt for choice these days!
Wow! Very nice, I even think depending on the purpose that ISO 25600 could be quite usable! Amazing to be sure!
The new medium format, both in quality, price, and sales figures. "full frame" is now APS-C.
I downloaded ISO 100, 800, 1600, 3200 & 6400 for comparison in PS. The results are impressive. I would seldom need ISO6400 in my landscape photography but it's better to have the capability than not.
WOW looks great!
iso 3200 looks great!
Amazing 6400, but...
Too expensive. Even if 5D3 and D800 share the same mega pixel and the same price, I still would choose D800...
Very clean, indeed!
what is that on the left side of the Black?
