While these are interesting, They don't showcase anything that couldn't be done on a d30.
+2 EV and 63% fill light on Adobe ACR 6.7
Either of those settings alone can show up banding noise in dark areas in some low ISO canon raw files. (I'm discovering there's sometimes more to it than that tho, can vary with Canon shutter speed)Addenda: I can actually drag fill light to 100 to start to blow out the sand in the LR corner and it only shows a little chroma noise that could be removed with basic NR and still show plenty of detail.
I'd LOVE it if my 5D2 came out this clean at those settings.
check my tech blog for the dark noise comparison if you want to see impressive lens caps shots. 2 samples at ISO 3200 from D800 removed August 26th.
