Don't Be Scared About Boosting Your ISO with the Canon 5D Mark III


I took this shot at ISO 5000 with my Canon 5D Mark III. The camera's great in low light at high ISO settings.

Hey, have some fun! Write a caption for this photo, which I took on Saturday at the Day of the Dead parade in Tucson, AZ.

I used the Vignette filter in Nik Color Efex Pro. Seems to work well with this image.

Info on all my plug-ins on my Plug-ins page.

Explore the light,
Rick

Hard to see with the very small resolution of the post, but it does look Very clean for 5000 iso! Nice!

Great picture. The vignette adds to the "mysterious" and "creepy" feel of the photo.

The high ISO capabilities of the 5D Mark III are really impressive. Images shot at ISOs up to 3200 are totally usable, even for large prints, and 6400 works great too. There's definitely noise, but it's very fine and not a problem if the situation requires shooting that high.

Thanks for sharing such quality info... It's so important to have a list of good photography resource sites, as there is always important events coming up like Carnivals, or Christmas, when it's so important to capture all of your most treasured memories. I recently came across another great photography blog for beginners, which shared some really great holiday photography tips

This is especially true of shooting photo trip and you have to be efficient with your time. I normally have a good search on the internet and check on sites such as Flick, Almay and Google Earth to get a visual feel for the place. Although, if I’m planning on covering a big area, referencing travel guides is a good option. Photography Tips & Tricks
