    I know, no pictures of the beer. I drank it all. :wtc:

    Anyways I've been really happy with the 1dn's 800 and 1600 iso as it's a tad cleaner than the 20D but it has basically zero banding. nice randomness to noise when/if it is visible at all.

    To see if there was any pattern noise I figured I'd try ISO 3200, RAW, underexposing 1 stop and then 2 stops, then correcting that in ACR.

    There is a lot of chroma noise at these iso's, mainly red then blue but I figured I should be able to get close to ISO 1600 B/W film noise but with 2-3 stops more sensitivity :bigthumb: ...

    Here's the results, some have been filtered, channel mixed, curved, duotoned, etc... and some are pretty straight conversions. no sharpening applied at all, no noise reduction either. 33% resize. Handheld shutter priority 1/125 on 50mm 1.4.

    any of you have any scanned neopan 1600 or similar films? anything that you pushed a stop or two? I'd love to see the results...


    also any comments on the noise amount, obviously it is strong but do you see any distracting noise/patterns? I love my ISO 100 but I really don't think it looks bad considering that it lets you do decent F2.8 to F4 DOF in low indoor lighting

    I went for a walk downtown when it got dark, like 10pm or so. got a lot of neat shots but still processing them. (all handheld iso6400+)

    this is a bit higher than 6400...

    I have a smooth looking version as well, but I liked this more.

    obviously the pics would be a lot better on a tripod since 1/60 is a tad slow at 50mm and stopping down a bit more would really help...

    this is light that at 1600 iso at f 5.6 it was about 1" exposures or so, definetly not going to stop people walking around and such, which i'm still going through.

    Here's the camera's jpg 25% with +1ev in PS and nothing else.

    I had to make a whole series of images under, normal and over exposed and pushed and pulled accordingly to see wtf would happen. intresting to see, but expensive as fuck to do. 4x5s are pricey enough but pushig and pulling at pro labs is mucho dinero

    you have any scans of 4x5 bw?
     
  22. I have a few bw 8x10's that I pushed using an old pentax 35mm, they fit this thread great but I don't have a scanner. Maybe tomorrow I'll take a pic of them. I think if you're into this shit you'd really like them. :hs:

    also I forgot to mention I processed them myself and they are obviously b&w

    no scans period, I was a cheep bastard back then, and the local pro lab here wants $20/mb :ugh: for scanning. I'll just rent a pro scanner for the weekend some time, its only $45 :squint:

    I disagree. Though the physical benefit may not exist in digital, color can sometimes be distracting, making black and white a better choice by putting an emphasis on form.
