| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 5DIII noise on lower ISO - worse than 1DsII? |
My wife and I noticed over the last 2 weddings that the noise in the 5DIII (iso 400, 800) is much worse in the luminescence channel than the 1DsII as similar ISO. We looked at both cameras files and compared to a bunch of older files.
She noticed there was more luminescence channel noise, more chromatic noise, and less clarity in the over all samples of images we looked at.
Specifically the noise in the background of shots at 400/800 was almost disturbing. We ran each file through ACR 6.7 and 7, and DPP to see if anything would reduce it / sharpen it. We shoot RAW exclusively so I don't think the NR setting should effect the photos.
With some Heavy NR setting in ACR we can get them better but we just don't understand why the 1Ds files look cleaner / sharper with the same lenses..
there might be some AA filter / resolution differences but not on this type of scale.
I can post specific photos tonight, but I wanted to get a sense of what you all think. I heard that at least one person was complaining that the sensor in his camera was poor and the 2-3 camera was much better. Is there that much sensor quality variation going on? I've seen shots with the 5DIII that were on 12000 that look like ours on 800!
