5D image sample (sunburst)
Posted 27 February 2006 - 12:24 PM
The attached image was from a series of images I created to see how the 5D would capture sunballs.
Aside from levels and a bit of color adjustment, there have been no changes to the image. No noise reduction was done to give you an idea of what ISO 100, pushed 3 full stops from RAW, looks like. (the smaller image is 100% crop).
The scientific result: ... cool .

Can you take the ISO 100 shot and instead of pushing 3 stops, push less or not at all and use curves to bring out the dark parts.

It looks like only 2 of the fou images you attached "made it" onto the post. Can you resubmit them?
Thanks in advance,

I see all four images above... from my viewpoint, they seem to all be there.

The second one less so, as the sunball is very large and not well controlled.
I'd be interested to see what the JPGs straight from the camera looked like too.
The 100% crops have a lot of noise/repeat banding in them. I guess this might be the high ISO you used (actually no, it is in the ISO 100 one as well)? Maybe they are JPG artifacts? Or maybe a problem associated with the failed uploading?
