    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

    settings
    1/1000sec
    manuel
    ap.val.6.3
    max.ap.value f2.8
    ISO 500

    focal length 300mm
    lens EF 300 F2.8 ISUSM

    The amount of noise seems high for this camera

    What do you think..1-noise.jpg

    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.....

    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.

    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...
