And the beautiful part is that you can downsize and it doesn't matter what ISO you're shooting at.

ISO 1600


ISO 4000


ISO 3200

I agree, that shot of the dog is just beautiful.

What is the first picture of? I can't seem to figure it out

The first shot is just the lights in my kitchen. I've been playing around since yesterday. I'm about to go take some real pictures though. Full Frame + wide apertures = great DOF. Plus it doesn't hurt that it was downsized from 21mp, so I won't have to do a lot of sharpening for web sized photos. I am going to have to throw out my portfolio and start over. Everything looks so good coming from this beast.

Canon 5D MKII

I was using my Canon 24-70 f/2.8L on it for most of the evening. I'm going to play with some of the other lenses I have today. The 15mm FE is going to be fun.

I was just about to say that must be a pretty nice camera to take images that nice at ISO3200.

Looks brilliant, now we want to see some video...

I'm going to try and play with the video function tonight. I've recorded a bit, but deleted everything so far. I've never really messed with it much. Plus I have to go pick up the discs. I left them in the box at my parent's place. I just swapped out my cameras in the bag.

Here's one from Antietam with the Canon 15mm f/2.8 FE.

If that ever happens, it's going to be years off. That's due to the sensor being about the size of a frame of 35mm film and the optics in the glass. Unless they start making P&S with manual controls, large sensors, and apertures of f/.9, then it's probably never going to happen.

That's why Olympus has to have glass with apertures of f/2.0 compared to the exact same lenses from other brands that have apertures of f/2.8 or so, the sensor is much smaller than normal and won't achieve the same DOF unless they have wider apertures. P&S cameras have sensors even smaller than the 4/3rd's sensor.

Those are great shots. I really appreciate the DOF offered w/that lens. Mucho fun ! The detail on the dog is fantastic, especially at that ISO. How high can you go before seeing noise ? BTW, did you use any post production noise reduction or are those straight out of the camera ?

I have imagenomic but I try not to use it. Didn't use it on those.

Seeing noise is relative to how you shoot. I can get noise at ISO 100 if I tried. I was comfortably shooting between 1600-6400 last night. It has two hi modes, but they're software pushed and no the sensor sensitivity increased.

I'm curious about this statement and would like to be enlightened, if you wouldn't mind ? I've only ever found that the noise I see associated with ISO sensitivity increases as you jack the ISO levels up.

It's a great cameras and David Hobby, the writer of the Strobist blog rocks the G9 on occasion since it has a hot shoe. You'd never be able to tell from some of his pictures what camera it is. But then again, it's the lighting that does that. There's still limitations though and you're not going to get the quality and high ISO performance out of a G10 that you would from a Full Frame camera.

Of course, as ISO goes up, so does noise, but noise is always there. The below shot is a crop of a photo shot at ISO 100. If you look at the black space to the right, you'll see noise. You'll have to click on it to go to flickr, then view the large file.



Noise is created by underexposure. Some cameras hide it better than others, but if you're shooting under the right conditions, you can see noise anywhere.
