Why do all the 7D cheerleaders get so hurt when someone points out how noisy the 7D is? It's no secret guys, the 7D has a noisy sensor. Does this surprise anyone with it's pixel density? Just accept it and tell it how it is: Yes you can achieve good output from the 7D with PP/NR but don't expect anything clean SOOC.
I was one of the first to get the 7D when it was released and was one of the first to post about it's noise here. The truth is the 7D is a has a noisy sensor and wasn't widely accepted back in the LR2 days (many dumped it).....however, once LR3 was released the 7D all of a sudden became noiseless right?? Wrong. The 7D buy itself is still noisy guys, no way around it. It requires PP/NR to clean it up as others have shown in their images here.
The amount of PP required is acceptable to some, and unacceptable to others. To each his own. To me, the 7D is almost the perfect all around camera except for the noise...I still own one and use it for certain situations....I've just learned to live with the extra PP/NR required as many others have here.
You're just repeating what everyone else has said in this thread. Your post is nothing new really. No one is denying that the 7D isn't as clean as its Full Frame cousins.
We're just really surprised that some people consider moving a slider as 'too much work'.
Yes people continue to get defensive and refuse to accept the 7D is noisy....otherwise these threads would end after a few posts and there would be no arguing for 8 pages.
I don't think there's anyone who said it doesn't have noise...I'd be interested to see a camera that DOESN'T have ANY noise at ANY ISO.
So basically, what we're supposed to say is...okay, someone who apparently can't be bothered to move a slider...the same slider that I move for my 1D3, my previous 1D2n, my 40D, 30D, 5D or any other camera, can say that ONE of those bodies is noisy, but not the other ones.
I'm sorry, but I ain't falling for it. THere's no special "trick" to unlocking the camera's quality. It's the same as any other camera. Good technique, minor/moderate depending on taste, for post processing yields great images.
It's the same as any other camera I've owned. Yep, it may have more noise because of the pixel density...but it's funny, the camera doesn't get compared to cameras in the same market...just higher end ones...that alone should say something.
Also the fact we still have people looking at 100% views, which correspond to an enormous enlargement on the 7D, and then stick their nose 6" from the monitor and complain about some grain in the skies.
