Last week at the San Francisco 49ers vs San Diego Chargers night game I had the chance to test the high ISO capabilities of the new Canon 7D mark II against the Canon 5D mark III and the Canon 1D mark IV. The test wasn’t a perfect apples to apples comparison as every play of an National Football League game is different from the next.
Long story short, here is my conclusion. The 7D Mark II has about the same amount of noise at high ISO as does the Canon 1D mark IV straight out of the camera, but the 7D mark II files clean up better using Lightroom 5, while the 5D Mark III files were the best straight from the camera and cleaned up better in than both other camera Lightroom 5.
