all decent 10MP cameras are fine at iso 1600. The people that complain are pixel peepers and not anyone that actually prints their work.

This is not to say that it couldn't be better, or that the new camera's high iso performance is not absolutely ridiculous and amazing...

But an xti or d80 or whatever will perform good enough to live with at high iso's.

Yeah the XTi isn't incredible at 1600 but I've yet to have a shot that was too noisy to use. Just sayin

XTI sucks ass at ISO 1600. I shoot alot in low lighting and high ISO.. It's the main reason why I upgraded to 5D.


There was barely any light in this shot:






kit lens 55mm f/5.6 1/2sec

they're not the same shot.

The 5D shot has an extra stop. Of course it's going to look better, it's properly exposed....

:slap:

that's why I said stupid comparison. these shots were taken when I first got my 5D to compare between my old gear vs new. :o

Oh, I know... But it's pretty funny that you're basing your poor review of the xti's high iso off of a poorly taken shot.

I mean high iso = noise, and underexposed images = noise. so you're effectively doubling the noise the xti produces, then comparing that to a good quality image from the 5d.

I'm not saying that the xti is as good as the 5d, cuz it's not, but it's also not as bad as you're making it out to be.

But I think we had this exact same discussion the first time you posted this....

:p
