Default 550D pics

As promised, here are a couple of photos taken on the Canon 550D with Canon 17-85mm lens. They were taken indoors with the camera set to AWB, and sport setting. I was a bit worried when I noticed that the ISO wa set to 3200, but he photos have come out pretty well, reasonably sharp, well exposed and good colour. Well done Canon!

Nice shots for 3200ISO. Did you use any in camera or PP noise reduction?

No, just set it to auto and only processing was a bit of sharpening. I was really impressed, glad I spent the money now!

All I am saying is that these photos look so amazingly sharp for 3200... just seem unbelievable... I am waiting for my tax return, and til it comes in, I am looking at the 550D, the D7 and Pentax K-7... It is rather confusing trying to decide, but looking at your pictures... holy cats. Thanks. Ned

Glad you're enjoying the new camera. ISO performance looks pretty good at 3200. Nice to see. Sharpness is impossible to judge because there is no subject detail in the frame. If you want to shoot basketball you'll need to get a lot closer and shoot at 855mm in your next outing as you really want the action to fill the frame. Although then you have the issue that at f5.6 you probably will only be getting 1/100 shutter speeds or so.

Enjoy!

It's also impossible to judge quality with reduced resolution images.

So, sorry to ask a stupid question, but are these shot indicative of the 550D or no? Just looking at them, it is hard to believe that this 3200 ISO... the quality looks great

Those look great, but could you please post a 100%-crop - I'd like to see the REAL quality of ISO 3200
