John Mitchell Posted October 24, 2013 Share Posted October 24, 2013 I have just emerged from a month of hard time "Awaiting QC" to discover that one of my images failed due to "noise." As usual, I was totally wrong when it came to guessing which image had failed. Also, ironically, the image that failed was one that had already passed QC a few weeks ago. After uploading, I found some dust spots that QC had missed and I didn't like the white balance; so I requested deletion and uploaded an "improved" version (the one that has just failed). Go figure. Anyway, my question is has anyone noticed low ISO (200 and 400) noise problems with the 14MP Sony NEX-3/5 sensor? The shadow noise in the ISO 400 image that failed seems very minimal to me, and I had applied some NR to the RAW file. Still, it obviously was too much noise for QC's liking (on the second time around, anyway). I'm now paranoid about submitting even images shot at ISO 200 that have the slightest bit of shadow noise.
