Shown here are High ISO examples taken with the Canon EOS 7D camera.
There has been a lot of talk about how much noise the 7D would generate in images at high ISO settings. Having just purchased a 7D myself I thought I would post a few high ISO examples for others to see.
The photographs are clearly marked as to what ISO settings were used. The ones that say no editing are just as they came out of the camera. They have been cropped to 1400 pixels on the longest side but no further editing has been done to them at all. All these photographs were taken in the cameras JPEG mode.
The ones that say edited, I have edited them through my normal editing process, PS Elements version 7 and Neat Image plug in noise reduction.
The in camera high ISO noise reduction settings on the 7D are STANDARD, LOW, STRONG and DISABLE, I took these photographs on the LOW noise reduction setting.
My conclusion is that the 7D copes pretty well with noise at least up to ISO 3200. I didn't have time to try higher ISO settings or the other in camera noise reduction settings. I am confident that if the need arises I can shoot at high ISO with the 7D and get usable results.
