I tried to put micpic on this guy tonight but it didn't work out. Probably just as well as the light was not good but I hadn't had a shot at a Yellow Warbler yet this spring. There may be artifacting present as this was shot at ISO 6400 then ran thru Elements.

I would have mush at 1600 ISO, don't even have 3200 much less 6400. This looks pretty good if it was as gray there as it was here yesterday. I couldn't tell what shutter speed you were able to get. I had a yellow land within 10 feet of the deck yesterday, quick grabbed the camera but only had 1/40 second handheld, and not much time to switch any settings. At least I didn't have to crop, except to get him off center a little. He will have to do until a sunnier opportunity.

This was from about 7:45pm and it was cloudy and gray here as well. The in camera noise reduction does quite well. I've printed some shots that were ISO 12,800 and they looked fine. If you shoot at 15mp,print 16x20 or smaller,and don't crop,and keep the histogram to the right side,it's not bad. A little grain isn't very noticable unless you get your nose right up to a print-which most folks never do. I owned the 1DMarkIII for a few weeks but sold it as it wasn't as good as the 50D in the area I use most-indoor sports shot in jpeg.

Hopefully Canon will get the Mark 4 in the 10 ring.

I'll try to post some ISO 12,800 pics with the full exif so you can have a reference.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
