Canon 5D Mark III, high ISO shots

24-105mm @ 85mm  |  F4  |  1/15th s  |  ISO 6400

24-105mm @ 73mm  |  F4.5  |  1/60th s  |  ISO 12800

Thought I’d share a couple of high ISO value shots taken with my new Canon 5D Mrk III. The first shot is of my friend Jeff, taken at Three Brewers pub on the weekend. I didn’t apply any noise reduction in post processing. Basically, at ISO 6400 I’m seeing about the same amount of noise as I’d expect on my Canon T2i at ISO 400-800. The second shot is of my friend Phil, taken at Elephant Castle pub on the weekend. In this one I did apply just a smidge of noise reduction and a smidge of sharpening, but not much at all. Shot at ISO 12800 it was a bit noisy out of the camera but very easily cleaned up without much loss in detail. This is still a quite usable photo. Basically, this was high on my list of reasons to buy a 5D Mrk III. If anyone is sort of in the dark about ISO, feel free to ask in the comments and I’ll explain, or simply google it.

  1. Impressive! I can see why going to a full-frame camera is well worth the investment!

    Congratulations on your new camera. I’m sick of the noise problem in the T2i, but can’t afford to go all the way to the 5D. Looking forward to seeing more.

    • Thanks Lynn. Yeah, I was finding the same thing. Any time I got into a low light situation where I had to crank up the ISO, I’d cringe. Now it’s no longer an issue. It’s really going to change how I shoot.
