Is it me or are the noise levels ok on this pic.
for the settings below.People tell me that with this camera you shouldnt have any problems with noise up to ISO1600
the picture has been taken with a canon IDMKIV
focal length 300mm
lens EF 300 F2.8 ISUSM
The amount of noise seems high for this camera

How tight is the crop?
This shot seems abnormally noisy for such a high spec combo.
I'd get it checked over by your local Canon dealer.
For a camera of that quality I think it's very noisy, my old Canon 450D crop camera isn't as noisy as that & it's sharper. Is this a 100% crop?

Thank you for replying it is well cropped , not bothered about the sharpness on the pic as it was quickly taken for the problem with the noise, theres no problem with the sharpness
with the camera thats down to my bad focusing on this particular pic.....
How much of a crop is it?
From this pic.
is it cropped too much
You're expecting way, way too much from the camera. That's a gigantic crop and the resulting image quality, i.e. noise, sharpness, detail, etc. etc will look absolutely terrible as a result, on any camera.
For the best image quality try and compose the image before pressing the shutter button, rather than relying on the crop tool in Photoshop.
How was your image generated? For example, did you process a raw file with DPP (for fine control over noise reduction) or did you just shoot a jpeg? If you shot a jpeg what settings were used?
the best detail and sharpness and noise reduction comes from an image that is taken with no or very limited crop, you are asking way too much from your camera as stated above, either get in closer, much closer or buy a better lens that will reach the subject.
thanks for all your comments
That's a savage crop,you are expecting too much when cropping to this extent.
you should have actually started a new thread.......................saying this.......
wow,look at this amazing quality of this image..................
then show the cropped pic..........
and it was cropped from this !!!!!!!!!!show original
then go on to rave about how awesome new technology is !!!
That is indeed a savage crop of the original image.... I crop my images fairly tightly.... but not to that extent....
If you don't want to go to a longer lens than your 300mm f2.8, try a 1.4x converter.... or as Ian says try and get closer to your subject...
that lens works great with canon's 2x extender you need one , then process in DPP

I've yet to try the 2x MKIII converter on my 300mm f2.8 IS II Colin.... but its in the bag ready
