Interesting Canon 40D 'V' 5D Noise

    Just found this regarding the 40D V 5D regarding noise (four posts down,
    download and compare at 100% for yourself):
    http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1019&thread=24687298&page=1

    When viewed at 100% in PS, I actually think that the 40D is slightly better
    as far is noise is concerned (although granted, when printing, the 5D would
    be better).

    To be honest, I was surprised. Mind you, the 5D has been out for nearly 3
    years and so is due a replacement soon, whereas the 40D has only recently
    come out, so technology would have moved on a bit.

    Couple of other things, the 40D exposure is a bit longer, which will help
    with noise and also the poster didn't mention whether in-camera noise
    reduction was turned on or not on the 40D, which of course would also make a
    difference.

    On a slight tangent... I guess the next iteration would be the 6D... so
    what happens when Canon runs out of single digits? Would they go from
    the 9D to the 10D?

    Oh, wait...

    Maybe a 5D MkII followed by a 5D MkIII?

  4. How times flies. I remember when I heard Mark III I thought of Lincolns....

    By the time we hit 10D again, won't the first one be but a faint memory?

    Happy Christmas, Merry Holidays to all.

    And to all a Good Night!

    It'll be 'retro' and hip.

    At their current release rate, a replacement for the 9D won't be out
    till 2020 ... do you really care what they name a camera 13 years from
    now?

  7. It looks to me that the noise in those images has been aggravated by
    sharpening. Which makes the comparison meaningless.

    The successors to the 5D are/were to be called 3D and 7D. The 3D
    would have 16.7 MP and full weather sealing. The 7D would have
    12.8 MP and a body similar to the 40D.

    I can see what you mean David, particularly by looking at the edge of the
    grey card zoomed into 1200%. Mind you, although the images should have been
    straight out of the camera, surely sharpening would not have a negative
    effect on noise? If anything, I would expect to see more noise with
    sharpening.
