Noise again

There is not enough time for me to post more photos from my travel today, so I will talk a bit more about noise.

Using a low ISO setting such as ISO100 will not completely eliminate your noise problem. In the dark areas, noise will still pop out, like it or not. It is a challenge to all the sensor manufacturers to come up with good noise performance sensors, especially the so-called 'dark performance'.

For example, the fireworks shots I showed in my earlier entry were shot at ISO100, the lowest possible ISO setting at a Canon 20D digitial SLR camera, however, the noise was still prominent in areas that were not lighted properly.

In such a situation, the only rescue will be the noise reduction software I mentioned previously.

By the way, if you are reading my blog, please leave some comment for me. I know I know, my writing is a bit boring, but I am working on it :)


  1. No, it's not's quite informative actually. Although erm...a bit too many photos of that performance.... :P

  2. Thanks for your feedback. I will take note of that.
