Just thought I would post that lol

Moving from the Mark III I am amazed at how well it handles noise. I mean I can get shots if I expose correctly using 10000 ISO that looks like a 40D at 3200 ISO or even a Mark III at 6400 ISO.

Here are some full scale image links, still amazed even a week after my purchase.

Mark III 6400 ISO (from raw file)

People who say D3 files are soft are crazy IMHO. They seem just as good or very close to a Mark II/III in sharpness. But without a doubt the D3 is at least a stop better at high ISO. (These have been processed through Noise Ninja, from a raw uncompressed file)

it does make the $5K seem easier...i post an iso6400 pic every week....

Hey and I got mine for $3,899 from B&H (used of course with around 1,300 shots on it).

Posting images post-processed by a noise reduction software for the demonstration of high ISO capacity is a joke, to say the least.

Another issue is, that the 1DsMkIII's top ISO is 3200, and the D3's is 6400. Anything higher is eye-wash (fake ISO). The 40D tops at 1600.

Panopeeper,

What I show in the high iso images is the ability to have a clean image.

And lastly the Canon image is of a 1D Mark III, not Ds.

Thanks

Would make a better case if you actually posted the jpg's from the camera, or the raw files from the same converter without any PP.

Running NN is like showing 100% and apply usm to them in ps. (wich isnt to uncommon)

Same scene would make it easier to compare the images awell.

Not that i dont think the D3 does a great job a higher iso, your example was just not a very good example of that.

hmm, I don't get what your saying Paul.

What I said is that even at 10000 ISO it cleans up and looks like a image taken at 6400 ISO on a Mark III.

That to me shows exactly what I was trying to show, was how well this camera handles noise.

That is all I was trying to show is that you could get a usable image at seriously high ISO numbers with the D3, while a Mark III has limitations.

Is it me or does your D3 shot looks like it has banding there are lines through out the image..My first d700 looked just like this?

revoke99,

I don't see it? Did you view it full size (click on it after it downloads as most browsers downsize it for viewing)

Sandy sorry after looking at it again I don't see the lines. I guess it was firefox while it is downloading the image you would see the lines then after I wait when it is done it disappears..

May I ask what type of dog she was? She looks like some sort of bulldog?

to cute! I love those dogs. Can you post an image of her :)

Are they good with kids?

Yeah my bulldog didn't really care too much for my son as far as play with him..He was more concerned about sleeping and was really laid back and let my son do anything to her..You could put her in any pose and she would stay still and not move.. She was so lazy if you want a dog that you walk and bring to the park this is not for you..All she did was sleep and follow me around the house and lay down next to me very loyal dog not to much of a house guard but thats what I have my lab for...It was more of a companion dog. Here are some pic's ...

Bulldogs are very good with kids.

I love them. I was introduced to them while serving in the Marines (the Marine Corps mascot dog).

Sorry to hear your English Bulldog passed.

She was lovely.
