Ha! A yawny owl :)
I would imagine a flash was used in a completely dark room. Only the flash is providing any light in this image. I imagine there is very little ambient.
treepop: This one seems a bit more noisy than the other 25,600 images.
Why not use DPP? That seems to process noise as good as the in-camera processing.
Weyskipper: When all is said and done. As of today, the best-seller list on Amazon reads:- Nikon D800 - 1st Place- Canon 5D Mark III - 13th Place- Nikon D4 - 15th Place- The 1DX is not in the top 100
I guess, whatever we may think of the too many pixels and the 4FPS and so on does not make one bit of difference.
I can sort of understand there is a difference between the 5DIII and D800, but why is the 1DX not making the list. Any ideas?
Amazon has this on their site regarding the 5D MK III : "This item is in high demand and we have taken orders up to our initial allocations. We will continue to accept pre-orders and fill them as soon as additional inventory becomes available."
So sounds like they have sold their entire allocation already. Maybe people are going somewhere else to pre-order?
