Post Your Best Hi-ISO/Low Light 5DIII Shots!
« on: October 16, 2012, 01:19:51 AM »
I was trying to find samples of high-iso/low light shots taken with a 5DIII but they are all spread around the net, and I thought it'be useful for folks if they could find some great sample shots taken under low light conditions under one thread. If possible please post basic exif data (ISO, aperture value, and shutter speed) along with the photos. If the thread seems redundant I guess the moderators can close it if needed.

Wow, wonderful shots Tammy! Watching this from an iPad and it looks fantastic, I can't wait to get my hands on the 5DIII and try out its high iso performance. Damn, loving the dynamic range especially on the first two shots.  :D

The 5DIII pretty much makes 3200 classified as "normal" for ISO range  :D
Man, if I can push for that camera then the jump from T1i to that is going to be amazing,
800 is already so noisy, and the loss of all the DR at anything higher indoors~

Nice shots Tammy ;D. It's always good to see real-world examples rather than arbitrary tests. Is that last one of ISO 25,600, F4, 1/8000s just a typo or was it really quite bright and you were having a play around with the ISOs?

I haven't actually done much low-light from mine yet (mostly day / flash) but following was a snap at a restaurant not long after I got it, ISO 10000 (had it set for auto-ISO in manual), 50mm, f/2.8, 1/125. Obviously not great overall but we were in a dark corner with all the light sources pretty much all coming from behind, front light is only reflections from a wall. Just thought I'd leave the lights in place rather than crop so you can see the general situation.

Great shots Tammy and PeterJ!

Q for both of you:  Lens used in those shots?  Tammy, my guess is the 24mm L.  PeterJ, my guess is either the 24-70L or one of the 50 primes.  What is your opinion of the AF performance at those light levels and were you using center point only or something else?

Tammy:  Ditto on PeterJ's Q about the last B/W shot, I would also like more of your thoughts on it.  It's well done considering the available light challenges.  All the other shots are nice and are good examples of what I am hoping to get from the 5DIII since most of my use is low light like that.

PeterJ:  I realize that you 'weren't really trying' with that shot but none the less, it's a stunning photo.  I'm guessing that is your family and I can't stop looking at them.  Absolutely beautiful.  The woman's facial shape, smooth complexion and captivating eyes are hard to ignore!  She looks very happy in that picture.  Then there is the reason it was posted... great DNR, handling of the backlight and shadows.  All in all, a picture to envy for many reasons both technical and emotional.
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

I have 5Diii and love it. Those above are replies for the critics: touch the reality before opening the mouths!

Paddington Station by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

I have posted some others under High ISO Paddington and also London Omnibus. I think the high ISO capability is fantastic.

EXIF: 5Dmkiii, 24-105mm @ 105, f4.0, 1/8 sec (handheld - can't manage a tripod into the office...), ISO 5000

I went from 300D to 5D3 so you can imagine my delight! Push for it. It's great!

for most normal print jobs the 5diii is useable to ISO 12K or so, 25K in a pinch.  If you are printing very large then maybe scale back to 3200-6400 max.  For the web, IMHO, you can probably push it a stop beyond 25,600 depending on the use.

I just shot a number of night shots and many were at 12k8.

Thanks Rusty :) . Mine was taken with a 50/1.4, it handles low light focus really well even at outer points. I do have a 24-70L (Mk 1) and although good I really like he 50, it's always my preferred lens in that range unless I really need to zoom.
