5D Mark II Night Shot

I just came back from Macau yesterday. I have not been to Macau for at least 3 years and it was was first visit there since all the new Vegas style casino resorts were built. I took over 25G during the 2 days trip. While going through the photos, I am still amazed by the high ISO capability of the 5D Mark II. Here is just one shot of The Venetian Macau at night taken hand held at ISO2000. The RAW file was converted to TIFF with Capture One Pro. No noise reduction was applied during post-processiong in Photoshop.

  1. Took your advise and traded in my 5D for the 5D Mark II…now I have to go to HKG one day after I come back from Egypt and Istanbul and you can show me what else this baby can do…I’m buying the coffee.

    • Hi Zach,

      I usually convert RAW into uncompressed 16-bit TIFF files for processing in Photoshop. JPEG files are 8-bit, and have “lossy” compression, and obviously the uncompressed TIFF files are not “lossy” and retain the maximum amount of information.

      Whatever processing you do in Photoshop is going to cause degradation to the image quality, so it is theoretically best to start off with the maximum amount of quality before any processing.
