p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 20D ISO 3200/1600/800/400


Can't really say enough about the 20D and high ISO performance. Here at 3200. My Sigma 15-30 at 1/100 f/5.6

http://www.pbase.com/mfoto/image/34433245.jpg

and then with the 70-200 at 1/60 f/4 - ISO 1600

http://www.pbase.com/mfoto/image/34433705.jpg

and at ISO 800, 15-30 again, 1/80 f/5.6

http://www.pbase.com/mfoto/image/34433706.jpg

or ISO 400, 15-30, 1/50 f4

Excellent photos. If it wasn't for this mirror lock-up issue, I'd probably go buy one tomorrow.

no mirror lock up here... looks like you went and got nice lenses there. They won't go bad and you can always get the second batch if you are worried about the lock up.

What mirror lockup I haven't had a single one. I've had one lockup on the body the 1st hour I owned it, but it could have been operator error, too... Since then I've shot a lot and had no troubles.

I was considering between the 1D and the 20D... your pics are really swinging my vote in favor of the 20D !!

One lockup for a new camera is quite a lot. It scared me.

Shadow detail seems to be grainier than on the 10D (maybe that is just me)

Did you do any post processing or are these pictures straight out of the camera? Nice
shots?

HIGH ISO performance can't be seen in properly exposed photos of slightly over exposed photos. My D60's bad ISO 1000 is comparable to the 20D if it's properly exposed or slightly overexposed. Try underexposing by 1/2 stop. Then we know it's true capabilities.

Could you post some 100% crops? Resizing also tends to hide noise. Thanks!

Marcus,

What did you do for noise reduction? My old D60 was too noisy for me 400 and above. 99.9% of the time I kept it on ISO 100.... Although now, I'm begining to like the look of images with some noise.

Unsharpen Mask about 25% using Photoshop Elements 2 and some Auto adjust but not on all of them as far as I recall (slight crop on the sink). These were not meant as scientific proof/comparison or anything... just a few quick shots at high ISO.. I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Supposedly there will be a firmware update sometime tomorrow fixing the lock up issues that some users (myself included) have encountered.

And yes, the high ISO performance is stunning - especially when using a RAW workflow. Don't even bother with JPEG if you're using high-ISO with the 20D.

my shots are just JPEGs. Haven't adapted to the RAW work flow yet... need more memory cards..need CS...need a faster Mac... I'm happy with JPEGs for now.

Hey me too! I find that the images coming out of cameras nowadays are simply too clean and "shiny".. If the photo is supposed to be dark and gloomy or has that "oldie" look, I would expect it to have some noise and grain in that, rather than a perfectly smooth, "slicked-with-butter" image.

OT: ACR's RAW conversions give me that kind of nice, film-like grain to my ISO1600 pictures - they are monochromatically grainy, but not color-noisy, which is what I like.
