Canon 1D X 2500 ISO 1:1 Look
This is a 1:1 look at the Canon 1D X shot at 2500 ISO with the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II.
Remember what I say, any time you take a 1:1 look at anything you are going to see “noise/gain”. This does not mean that the camera sucks or has an issue. It simply means you are zooming in on the grain which means you will see it.
I will put it like this, if I was to print this image full frame on my Canon Pixma Pro 10 you would see zero grain or noise at 13×19. If you were to print this 40×60 and looked at it from one foot away you would see the grain but thats not the normal viewing distance.
What I am getting at is this is not bad and more tests are on the way.
