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.
