Oh 1D, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.....
Just got my 1D X yesterday. Been gun-shy because of this little "issue"(http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=10847.45) (credit to Northstar for starting the thread).
Anyways, just thought I'd share some of my ambient lowlight shots. All with a 100L. All SOOC JPEGs...no PP. Absolutely unscientific and non-award-winning...all snapshots. Just toying around with on-cam settings and familiarizing myself with the abundant (current 5DMk3 owner) settings. The 1D X molds in my hand way better than my 5DMk3 with BG-E11. So far, it's been a joy to use.
Just to let you all know where I'm coming from and for future reference, I'm not a pixel-peeper nor a chart-shooter. No disrespect whatsoever to people that do...just not my cup of tea.
D...what level of noise reduction did you use on these jpegs? Also, did you use a tripod?
PP? None. On-cam?...'Standard'. 'Auto Lighting Optimizer'...Disable...always have mine turned off when shooting indoors in ambient lowlight. 'Long exp. noise reduction'...OFF. Tripod? I'd like to think I just used my arms, face, torso. I'm one of the oddballs that doesn't drink coffee so I'd say I'm pretty steady!
Hope that helps, Northstar.
Since you've been calling me "D" (I don't mind at all), may I call you "N" (if that's okay)...it's just a lot less characters to type considering, as a "noob" on this great forum, I've been typing so much!
I feel I should've been more specific with my reply in regards to the tripod. Apologize for having been curt. I do have a tripod...an inexpensive "Rocketfish" CF tripod...with an RRS BH-55 (a very atypical combo, I know)...looking to upgrade to an RRS or a Gitzo sometime...but I digress. Anyways, for those sample shots, nope, didn't use a tripod.
Will sign off now. Gotta get some zzz's for a long day later. Northstar, and everyone else, if you have anymore questions, keep em comin!
