@Bosman: So will I do. Still saving up for the WA lens (17-40) but I will flog the H as well. Looking forward to do candlelightish lowlight photography at 51k for conversions into B/W. Maybe I even dare to do this at 102 k  8)

Thank you very much for sharing. Would you mind if I'd ask you for some 51200 and 102400 shots, just to see how a serious test at these levels looks like? I do not work with LR. All done in DPP. But compared to DPP, how much NR did you apply?

What do you think, will 51k give us a usable low light street photography/portrait in B/W?

Cheers, Pedro

30 D. Still some time, saving up for a new FF WA lens: 17-40 4.0 to buy both at the same time ;-)

I just saw them over @DPR. Wow. Have a 50 1.4 myself. Combined with a 85 1.8 and 28 2.8 I am looking forward to do this type of photography. Waiting with my purchase while saving up for a 17-40 4.0. But with these photographs there is a lot of joy in the waiting! Was worth all the wait, I even guess we gonna get some very usable 51k b/w photographs under these same conditions... 8) Cheers, Pedro

Well with my current 30D in mind, this looks really nice. If the raws are 1 stop better compared to the 5Dii, how many stops is that to my current body...about 4 I guess. My H1 ISO 3200 don't even look like 25k without pp! This is the dream cam for me, for a long time ;-) About one year more and I come! 8)

Great! I am another 30D shooter about to enter into the 5Diii universe...Looking forward to do so saving up a bit longer to get the WA lens as well. And yes...the computer side is another aspect to be considered...But anyway, there is joy in saving up and waiting while many of you out there will be sharing their experience with this breathtaking new device! Tell your friend I said hello...wishing him lot of fun while walking thru the learning curve. I am sure he won't repent his decision as I won't mine.

maybe the demo body was a lemon... 8)

looks great @25k. Looking forward to see RAWs.

These samples were taken with a pre-production unit, right? I guess Canon are aware of it and might have it fixed once the first batch hits the street, or yes a firmware update will do.

EOS Bodies / Re: What exactly is a stop improvement in ISO?
« on: March 03, 2012, 04:05:13 PM »
This is some of the reason I don't like the Dxo tests. As it states that the 5d2 is better at noise then athe mk4. Now, if you have tried these cameras you know it's completely wrong. On one hand...

Between 100-800 the 5d kills the mk4... But from 1600 and up the mk4 demolishes the 5d2. So seeing that the 5d shows noise at 1320 something and the mk4 is 1260 or whatever is just to take it way out of contex.....

Very valid question from the OP. And there is different answers...

I think Canon states two stops as being able to shoot at twice and four times the iso. And they claim the same noise at the highest setting being better than two stops down on the 5d2, which could easily be true.

Now take Lightroom in to the equation, Lr3 and the 5d2 vs the 5d3 with Lr4 gives you easily three stops, so "only for jpeg" two stops is only valid with the DPP software...

Yes I am drawing my own conclusions here, and claiming stuff, because it's friday and I'm enjoying a few beers, cheers everybody! Have a good one!

Hope you enjoyed your friday...;-)
How much time will it take to see RAW high iso photographs? Over here (Switzerland) release date is March 22 for retailers...Looking forward to samples...some more friday's down the line 8)

EOS Bodies / Re: 5DIII pre-order thread
« on: March 02, 2012, 04:16:41 PM »
I am currently shooting a 30D. After all the news today, also at DPR and Planet 5D I am really excited about. It is plenty of camera for my preferencies but yes I will drop the 3.5k for that beast, even if price doesn't go down a lot until about 15 month from now. Today  here in Switzerland, retail and online shops offered it for preorders at an equivalent to 4337,30 USD. But, the scheme might change a bit by overnext Christmas  As it is going to be at a little less than half way into its life cycle 8) Happy shooting to everyone preordered already!

isn't that a pre-production unit?

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III high ISO samples
« on: March 02, 2012, 04:02:25 PM »
I just downloaded the high ISO images from DPR.  All the images were taken at 3EV, so they are real low light images.

On my screen, I could see the noise at ISO 102400, but the 8.5 X 11 prints were sharp and clean.  I then printed 3 more, 51200, 25,600, 12800, and they also suprised me.  I could show any of these prints to someone, and they would not suspect that they were high ISO unless they had a magnifier.

These were jpegs with no additional processing by me, I would expect RAW to be better.

I certainly plan to use the ISO 25600 freely whenever I absolutely need it in low light for a fast shutter speed.

Canon has done some real work on the blacks, I can move the black slider in LR4 all the way to the right without seeing any banding.

yes they look more then okay!

thanks for sharing!

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 02, 2012, 02:18:08 AM »
Of course I would have been thrilled if the 5DIII was being released for $3000, or even $3200, but since I'll be upgrading from a 40D (that has served me well for the past four years) I feel that it'll be worth the full $3500.  If I had a MKII I might feel differently, but this sounds exactly like the FF DSLR I've been waiting for (which is why I just preordered it!).

So am I. The new cam is the one I was looking for. One year from now or maybe better fall 2013 I'll be upgrading from a 30D. As I am not a pro, and not even in wedding photography, time doesn't  matter, and if time is money, there's even a possibility to get it a lower price tag by then.
