Camera Body Gallery / Shot with an EOS-M
« on: April 16, 2014, 10:39:42 PM »
Got a chance to sit sideline at an NBA game.  The camera rules indicated on the ticket were that no detachable lens camera/ lens combinations were allowed, and there were plenty of security types prowling the court when play was not in progress.

So I thought that the EOS-M and a 24-70 lens might sneak by, and it did.  Needless to say no flashes were allowed either, but the light was surprisingly good.

I prefocused on the basket and tried to catch action that occurred around the net the best shot is below.  Surprisingly the 24-70f 2.8 was almost enough lens.  The pros that were shooting the game were firing the 1dx and what looked like a 200f2.   Rebound photo ƒ/2.8  50.0 mm  1/800   800     Shutter speed priority AE

Animal Kingdom / Beaver Shots
« on: February 12, 2014, 10:27:41 PM »
I rarely see Beaver despite there being signs of them all around.  Both of these were taken with the 70-200is usm ii with a 1.4xiii extender.  This guy was sitting about 20 feet from a bridge in Fanno creek park in Portland, a biker told me to look when he saw my camera, I was expecting a nutria.  You were all expecting an animal ..... right?

EOS Bodies / 7d noise question is it normal?

Here are some examples:

I've been shooting a variety of photos with 7d 5dii and iii and the 7d while a good tracking and focusing camera, has not lived up to my expectations of improving reach because the files don't stand up to any cropping because of high noise and what I think is just poor iso performance.  Even uncropped files look fuzzy.  I've included files from DPP of clouds (since they are at infinity focus to take poor focusing out of equation), but virtually all the photos show the same graininess and I think that is keeping them from attaining sharpness, really at any iso.  The metadata should be right nest to the photos to show the iso and other information.
So is this normal or outside of normal for a 7d, and what should I do bought the camera about 6 months ago.
