12 posts in this topic

ooops,wait a second,

Oh ya,that's better.

Don't be bashin my elph! that sucker goes everywhere with me,and has seen alot of hard road and still brings it!

As for the 50,it's doin a blizzard type thing outside,so all I can do is shoot at the wall. I am impressed at the ISO 6400 shots! Even 1600 Raw with no noise reduction looks fabulous when the image has alot of color.

When the kids go to bed I plan on doin the micro AF adj. to all the lenses. I was pleased to see the camera will store 3 seperate AF adjustment settings for 1 lens! Example: 70-200 2.8,70-200 2.8+1.4xTC,70-200 2.8+2xTC. I didn't know it was capable of that.

Maybe tomorrow I can drive around and poke it out the window at a bird.

Ya know mariner, it's people like you that make it so darned tempting to spend money on something I don't need. Between you and Ken, I don't know who's butt I'd like to kick the hardest. whistle

I will do my best X.

Ken,I like it already! I just shot this image @ISO 12,800!

jpeg,NR std, I left the exif in it. This is direct from the camera. Sure,there is some noise,but I don't know why folks bash the 12,800 so bad. It would work in a tight pinch. I could make nice 4x6 or 5x7 maybe even 8x10's if you didn't crop very much.

The 12,800 ISO shots I have seen posted online look way worse than mine. I wonder if Canon put something else in the soup on these recent 50D's? Firmware? Who cares I guess,I'm very happy!

He's the one with the 500. He should have the most dents in his butt. gringrin

Man,if that thing hit the pavement I would cry for you.

Same image with a tiny touch [settings 1&1] of Canon's NR in the new DPP.

NICE! my old camera looked about the same, It went everywhere with me especially in the back compartment in my motorcycle (silly me never took the case in case of quick need)it was pretty beaten up.

The pic you took reminded me of that e bay pic where you could see the guys reflection in the mirror but he didn't have any clothes on LMAO...

Congrates MM! You are discovering why one needs to take on line reviews and people talking about the camera who don't own it with a grain of salt. I do think the latest firmware made some improvement in some of the high ISO capabilities. Have fun with the camera, I have no doubt you will enjoy it!

Have fun with the newbie, MM. Great camera. I second Dan's sentiments 100 percent. I've made some prints from the high ISO test images I shot with the 50D (using in-camera NR), and they look WAY better than when I pixel peep the images on my screen.

After reading some of those online reviewers, I'd swear they and I are using two different models of camera or something.

Looks that way to me too. I sent a couple full frame 12,800iso to a friend last night and he printed them 16x20 just for fun and he said they looked fine.

Something is going on because I have been watching the "d" review site and the folks that are buying 50's now are posting images that are making some of the early buyers scratch their heads. Ultimately,the ones scratching their heads admit to not yet updating the firmware.

It won't make anyone a better photographer,just a good tool.
