Noisey images at High ISO and Flash recycle
« on: 10 / December / 2007, 10:18:31 »
Many new A series Canon cameras offer high ISO settings (400, 800, 1600) but are in fact useless as they produce so much image noise.  It would really help low light shots to improve the quality of pics at a 800 or 1600 setting.  Is this possible with changes to the firmware?  Can better quality be "unlocked" with the right tweeking?

My other wish is for a quicker flash recycle time, agian, don't know if this is possible, but it is amazing what some people have figured out so far.

Thanks for the amazing work so far.  You have really added some new enthusiasm to digital photagraphy!

Current camera: A570IS

Hint: Turn Noise Reduction to OFF (in the RAW menu). I leave it off permanently now. This actually creates less noise. I now suspect that Canon is intentionally introducing excess noise with their "Noise Reduction" to convince people to buy into their D-SLRs.

Canons cams are great but their philosophy... AAAAAAAAAAAAARGGG :-X :-X :-X :-*
