The D7100 will be more noisey in the shadows than the D700 is, simply because of the size of the photosites a full frame sensor has. Do some night time long exposures and its painfully obvious. The D7100 and D700 may look pretty similar at comparable ISO's when it comes to shooting in good light.
I find posts like this quite absurd. Underexpose at almost any ISO above say 500 or even less and you're gonna find noise in dark areas. This is a problem with not understanding the very basics of how to properly expose an image, nothing to do with the camera.
The original post. No details, no sample images, no information. Just "noisy images" being blamed on a perfectly capable camera.
Yes, it would be fine to see some pictures.
I am not afraid of higher "iso-noise" in this camera= Just ordered it.
I hope MikeG76 will chime in for my question (iso 100 and long exposures at night, that means a lot more for me - I was in doubt about D600 vs. D7100 for this kind of shooting, but not after writing with Thom Hogan, see my post).
How long of an exposure are you talking about? I was mainly doing 3200 and 6400 ISO 20s or so captures. I haven't done any with star trails in years. I will test and post the results if you like.
I recently added a d7100 body to my d700, and in comparison I am finding what I consider excessive noise in the images. Is anyone else finding this to be a problem.
