EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 candle light High ISO (102400)

Here's my catshot from about a few weeks ago, in comparison to yours it was taken at ISO 51200 "only" 8)

Hi Pedro, no coincidence at all... I was actually inspired by your original cat pic and wanted to test with more stringent (loony? lol) conditions... given the detail we see in the comfortor I thought you had "low" but some morning light to provide the DR apparent.  I also wanted to push the ISO to the max. I really didn't expect to see much at all in the pitch black room with a point light source, but was pleseantly surprised, so I wanted to share.

For the record, I will never take shots like this in in the dark at 1/1000sec in real life. but I am learning a lot in the process of this experiment :)

@Ray: Wow. Thanks for this one. You did great! Dare to go the limits, it is less harmful than bungee jumping 8)

@Stephen: I saw your pic back then and was very impressed! That added to my purchase as well, when I got my copy of a 5D3. It is an "insanely" good camera. Cheers to you, Pedro

Hi Ray, this is great stuff. What a nice coincidence ;-) Did we post the same topic just yesterday? Great! Here's my thread. And I even opened a Group over at flickr called Insane ISOs. Whoever likes to join, you are more than welcome!
Your 102.400 cleans up nice! let's go to the 102kers rock!
Cheers, Pedro

And here's the picture

@bornshooter: great! I like that.
I just created a flickr group: Insane ISOs

With all the obsession over self-imposed ISO limits for "clean images," (myself included) this is actually very refreshing.
I'm inspired to give it a go with my 5D3.
Cheers to you.

@stipotle: great. see you. I am a low light limits freak. so always happy if I can crack the ceiling and get my head through it   :D Looking forward to your nightshots. Are you on flickr? We could open a stratospheric ISO lounge...

@bdunbar79: 1.3 sec, f/8.0, huddled down on the street. But hey, great idea! Let's spread the word. Your 102k picture this month. handheld, or tripod. 28mm. Or whatever lens you have available. handheld would give it the edge  ;) Looking forward to stunning work, especially 1Dx! And BTW...what about a 204k street from the 1Dx?

Nice shot! I don't mind grainy nighttime photos. I think it gives them character. The noise pattern on the 5D3 Is exceptional too, with very little bending.

I took a look at your Flickr page. Nice work! I added you as a contact. :-)

Thank you R1-7D! I appreciate that. I will do so as well!  8) You know, I had a Contax 139 Quartz about 30 years ago and did the Kodak Tri-X pan games: pushing it to let's say ISO1600, 3200... There's been a lot of change since then...

@bdunbar79: Thank you. I appreciate that. You are right! Really looks like the 19th century Paris at night shots ;-) There was some huge PP applied to it in DPP second slider 20. But, wow I just like it. I am high stepping proud ot the 5D3 and a simple 28 f/2.8. Imagine, how the overnext sensor will handle this...sometime you do this same photograph handheld as I did, with a faster lens, at a decent noise level at  1/20? Cheers, Pedro

Last saturday I was taking my 5D3 to the extremes. I took a picture at 1.3 sec, f/8.0 using my knees as a tripod, huddled down on the street. I know it is noisy like an old B-52, but I kinda like to take it to the limits... 8)

In case you did that, I would like to see your 102k pictures!

Cheers, Pedro

some shots here:
this first one I could sell exclusively for about US $ 1000 to a transport enterprise here in Switzerland. A newspaper printed it and they saw the pic. As they were searching for something like it, so...;-) Was my last pic after two hours of nightscape shooting...

Oh no!!! Buy the 7Dii or wait for the 3d?

Ever travelled on THE flying dutchman...not the sailing competition class...I mean the legendary mirage sailing ship some folks claimed to have encountered while at sea...go for the 7DII and your done...the 3D? not as long as Elvis is alive...;-)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 05:09:21 PM »
I don't really believe that the noise performance would be that much better than the current 7d. They went down on res compared to the 5d2 with the 1dX and up in sensor size to be better than the 1d4, the 5d3 has the same res as the 5d2 and still is only better over 1600/3200 iso. So increasing the mp from 18 to 24 on an aps-c sensor doesn't read killer high iso performance for me. MP still sells....

Well, let's hope you're wrong! ;)

The rumour is "ISO Performance to get close to the 5D3"... So just imagine what the 5D4 and the 1DXXX will have for specs. ( the 1DXXX will be an obscene price :) )

So just imagine what the 5D4 will have for specs...That's about what I thought. If this sensor tech is quite  improved compared to other crop cams, then I dare to dream of quite a decent improvment in the next few years. My next cam won't be a 5D4 (my 5D3 is a tremendous cam) but somewhere down the road there will be a 5D5 or whatever they'll call it by then...And I guess, there will be new sensor tech within it, that will just blow us away... 8) till then...happy shooting...Cheers, Pedro

Lenses / Re: List of rumored lenses
« on: February 17, 2013, 02:36:36 PM »
some wide angle lenses are needed

16-35 f/4 IS USM
however i'd love to have a canon 12-24 4-5.6 USM

What would be the advantage of a 16-35 f/4 IS over a 16-35 f/2.8 II L? Sharpness? F/1.4 on my 50mm gives it the edge sometimes, even wide open...

Here are some quotes from nikon users:

" I would look for a used D700, D3, or D3s. The D800 files are going to be way too big for your needs. The D4 is somewhat overpriced for what you are going to need."

"D3s is the leader for low light, D4 is a piece of junk. D800 is crap unless you're in a studio. Wouldn't touch a canon unless 5DMrkIII"

" Best wedding camera on the market today is the D3s. The best value wedding camera on the market today is the D700."

" I agree with Brady, D3s is a beautiful camera. Shooting with 2 32GB CF cards with one for immediate backup is a great way to shoot a wedding with confidence! D800 is a body geared towards the landscape/commercial world but not for weddings. D4 was a dud."
I have seen my share of professional and/or accomplished photographers giving poor advice. ("yeah, sonny, get one of them cameras with large pixels, those will have less noise"). I have no idea if the  people you quote give good advice.


OK, here are the sites of some of those quoted --

LOL...I find it funny that as opposed to hearing the other side of the fence recommending lower mp'ed bodies for weddings in your mind = obviously bad advice.  Why is it so hard to accept that if you don't need to shoot to print 40x60 or larger a lower mp camera is bad?????   What I find even funnier is that in a standard photography forum (not nikon or canon), you see many nikon users telling younger photogs that the 5d3 is a great idea if your upgrading to FF and are not invested in glass????  File size does matter if you shoot 2000 images or more per event you shoot.

According to my shooting habits the highest amount of files I get while shooting is near 200. Developing them in DPP and some PP in CS2 (old but suits my needs), piece by piece. Due to an old and slow PC I don't even shoot full res. mRAW is way enough for now. So MPs really count. IQ wise as well, if you aim at mostly high ISOs and available light. So for me to go far beyond the current MP count of my 5D3 in a next body cycle would be a loss. As the 5D3 is a great low light tool at a (still) decent price. Especially if your amateur budget is not apt for an 1Dx. I'd prefer a split: 5Dx ("revolutionary" 22 -24MP sensor, decent ultra high ISOs, 50-51k "native", 102 and 204k extended, 0.5-1 stop improvement in RAW in comparison to the 5D3) 5Ds (new high MP sensor, ISOs 50-25kmax, ultra high DR)
