Canon 5D Mark II ISO Settings and Noise
The other day photographer and friend, Axel Cipollini, sent me this link. It's an interesting study, but I'm not going to get in to the details of it. In a nutshell this is what you should take from it. You should be shooting at 50, 160, 320, 640, 1250, 2500 ISO, etc. For some reason at 1/3 stop under the full stops of 200, 400, 800, 1600 you get considerably less noise than at any other similar ISO settings. Interesting.
