Completely not retouched - Used the 1d mkiv Profile for import into Aperture.

I know you will want the RAW for these - I'm uploading them now to amazon s3 - it's taking some time!!

These are low quality so i'm not gonna judge de ISO performance but the camera did nail the focus in dark environement.

This is great news.

EXIF Data is available with each file just click on details on each page in FLICKR

From memory all but two are 12800, the other 2 are 6400!

Re: focus

There were two occasions when the camera couldn't focus - the portrait of hannah in the car was one - but you have to understand - the only light in the picture was the car dashboard - that's it - it was ridiculously dark - but i took that shot handheld!

The one that it nailed that i was so impressed by was the photo of the life size nutcracker - that was SOOOO dark . But it nailed it.

I did shoot for a bit during daylight in "normal" situations and ISO and the focus was awesome.

Re: focus

Why is it that only Australia seem to have the camera? I couldn't get a review anywhere before now.

Re: Real World 1D MkIV Examples - IN THE DARK

Hi Ed,

Thank you very much for posting these. They are quite impressive.

In the two shots where the camera didn't auto focus, did you manually
focus or were they taken blind? I ask because it must have been hard
to manually focus, and yet the shots seem reasonably well focused.

I think the next thing that we would really like are shots of moving
objects and your report of the tracking experience--if you could.

Re: Real World 1D MkIV Examples - IN THE DARK

Thanks, good samples. I commented in one of the images that it'd be useful to include basic exif below images: ISO, f/number, shutter speed. That would save going for exif for each shot.

The good news is ...

I can't see any banding or pattern noise.

Re: Real World 1D MkIV Examples - IN THE DARK

Wow, 12800 looks like 1600 with my 1Ds MKlll noise wise, but the 1D MKlV has more detail. Crazy! I bet these print very well with no indication of ISO showing in the print.

cleans up pretty well - BIG image file

Just pulled the RAW file into Aperture and opened Noise Ninja on the automatic profile.. they clean up very well.. the girl at the fence is very very good at 12800 and cleaned up in NN.

here's an export of the file - default RAW settings in Aperture for the camera model and automatic NR in NN.. export is at original size.

Ed.

Thank you very much for your kidness. Not many people share immediately images nor raw files.

Files 91 and 94 don't work (marked as forbidden) The rests are huge! Once I end downloading I want to check the sizes in jpg straight convertion and cleaned.

I really appreciate your effort.
Have a merry christmas.

Re: cleans up pretty well - BIG image file

Just worked on the files in Aperture. They clean up well but don't seem nearly as clean as the D3s samples I've seen. And trust me, I'm a Canonite, I want the images to be spectacular.
Check the included D3s image, shot at 25,600. Check the detail in the stockings.

Of course they're 2 different setups- the high ISO Nikon image is dark but well lit, after all. The only way to know for sure would be to photograph the same setup with both cameras.

Untextured fields have the most problems, such as skin tones on the face closeups. Images with texture hide the noise very well when taken through Noise Ninja. The good news is the 12,800 images do seem workable.
If I hadn't seen the D3s images I'd probably be a lot more impressed.

How dark was it?

Just kidding.

A couple of the links to the RAW files are broken but a big thanks for taking the time to post these!
