Megan at the recital -- Canon 1D III & EF 85mm f1.2 @ f1.8, ISO 3200. Click for larger.
The music school that my kids attend has a recital once every few months. I think it's a great practice for the kids who can play in the presences of large number of people.
I was looking at the pictures I took at the recital and thought the noise at ISO 3200 is like ISO 400 on my 20D, which doesn't look quite right. I checked the RAW file and it was accidentally set to sRAW (2.5MP). The down sampling no double made the file much cleaner, but of course I lose the resolution. At least now I know how clean sRAW is, I might use it more often if I need to shoot at ISO 6400.
