does this seem noisy to you?




this is a throw away shot from the weekend. a definite miss. However, the one thing this shot has that is consistent with the other shots I took this weekend is the amount of noise at iso800 on a D800.

This image is un-edited, just into lightroom and exported out at highest jpg settings. The camera settings are:

uncompressed RAW recording
14 bit
Active D-Lighting is Low
long exposure NR off
high iso nr off

I don't have a 100% crop handy but this is ISO 4500 on the D800 with no noise reduction applied. At 100% on the computer screen I see some noise but not enough to apply noise reduction for this scaled down version and my taste anyway.

ISO4500 is but a pipe dream for those of us presently stuck with you know what . . .

BTW, I believe those do not apply to the RAW file.

What about other ISO800 shots? The scene and light seem to play a roll on noise.

Pretty much every iso800 + shot I take has this kind of noise too it no matter the lens or the scene. I almost always have to apply some kind of noise reduction.

yea, it was a missed shot for sure.


I'm surprised no one sees the noise. I know a commenter on Flickr did.

Well then, if he saw it then it must be true... time to sell your camera and upgrade to the next very best .

Jokes aside though, unless I am going blind, I fail to see the noise... in that specific photo.
I hope people don't confuse the "noise" with the dark spots on the tarmac... that's normal and is not noise... unless you wanna say is road noise... !?

I'd say the jacket is the best place to bring the photo to 1:1 and see what I'm talking about.

Maybe I'm too pickey. I'm not a pixel peeper, but when I zoom in to do some post processing work (ie get rid of chromatic) it irritates me how noisy it is. Of course the image looks fine scaled down for web or printed even upto a 36" print

.

I think that is the "issue" and "solution" of your question .

Any pictures in those conditions will give you a small, faint grain.
Even at ISO 100, on any camera you will have a very small faint of grain (especially when you zoom in) on unprocessed pictures - is normal.

However, for ISO 800 the amount of noise is so small I think is negligible.

It is slightly more visible on the jacket because of the light conditions (sort of back-lit) and the color of the jacket (or rather lack of it).

I would be more concerned on that CA that you are talking about
