We test the new 30D digital camera for image noise at night.
The RAW files for this and the other tests are available from our Camera Test page.
below JPEGs are 100% crops (i.e. the actual pixels) from the center of
the image prepared from the RAW file with no sharpening, noise
reduction or exposure adjustment done through Adobe Camera RAW and
note also that these are the worse case noise levels you should see. In
practice all images, even from RAW, will have some noise reduction
applied to them in the conversion process.

Noise is very well controlled to 400ISO. Even 800ISO is very good for the speed but it becomes very noticable at 1600ISO and 3200ISO.
