Noise in colour photographs that you don't think looks absolutely horrendous...
I've always like the visible grain in high speed film. A lot of digital photographers seem to be OK with it for film and digtial B&W but the modern trend is that any noise in colour digital is instant hate.
I get that it often looks very bad... but sometimes I see digital images that have quite obvious noise and I think the pic actually looks quite good with it.
Three pics I noticed here (not my pics - just noticed them on flickr).
Hi gearfag. These aren't so bad. Probably because the subjects are well lit. Photoshop grain/noise isn't so bad and can be used to cover up awful sensor noise at times quite well.
Unless you blow the images past 8x10 it's not terribly noticable anyway. Certainly not things that the average /p/rotog does anyway.
Yeah, it's a snapshit but that's not really relevant. I was just searching flickr for sample photos as I'm looking for a new camera and was curious about real world high-iso noise from it (it's not a recent camera).
Contrary to the fucktard above this is just high-iso noise. I've been told that CCD noise is more random than CMOS noise which makes it look a bit more film like. I generally dislike digital noise, particular in colour, but there was something in this pics that reminded me of what I used to get from films like Superia 1600.
I'd say it's a pretty universal dislike of high-iso noise. I was quite surprised when I came across these pics as most people either do post/use images with noise or feel compelled to de-noise as much as possible.
Just thought it'd be good to see some more examples of noise adding to an image rather than taking away...
I've certainly found that while searching through websites and flickr. I was looking for an M9/M-E and was worrying a bit about usable ISO. That camera undoubtedly does have quite a bit of noise at 2500 (really 3200) but I was surprised at how pleasant it looked.
I'm sure it can't be the only camera that has a quite pleasant noise at higher ISOs.
this looks fake and homo as fuck.
there are color smears that aren even part of the shape of objects or their texture. they are fucking arbitrary fuckups of the sensor or the computer or whatever gay ass part that does this.
its low depth color noise too, one can count the colors, its that bad.
Noise and grain are different things, nigger.
Colour noise is obviously horrendous cause it is made of tiny coloured dots randomly displayed in the frame.
Grain on the other hand is a different matter. It can be used to pursue a certain aesthetic and also to hide the real digital noise that fucking blows. I, for one, don't like the clean images digital gets so I always apply a little grain and reduce sharpness, but I ALWAYS eliminate some of the noise before. If you are subtle when adding it it will be pleasing and barely noticeable unless you go zoom to 100%. Your pic looks like it was shot with a 12800 film, and it doesn't look very good. Turn it a bit down, and visualize the result at full zoom.
digital tends to invent colors and gradations. or to simplify depth, so some parts of the image look high end, and some other look gameboy color tier. look to what happens if one lowers the cyan luminance just a bit. you get to watch hard patches of some ugly shit thats in the original file, but more prominent here.
2/10 for low effort. be funnier next time.
this is pic related.

wow .. you are .. so stupid .. just wow.
>digital tends to invent colors
.. just .. my god ..
.. oookaayy ..
dude .. I am quite used to people on this board having absolutely no clue what they are talking about. and even with that annoying confidence which is typical for dillitants. but for some reason your post extraordinarily goes on my nerves.
I would appreciate if you'd take some of your color patches and smear them furiously on your anus.
dugutul now invents colors. get the new sony color synthesizing pixel generator. it will make pictures which are somewhat similar to the environment the sensor is at the moment. newest feature: now with even simpler depths which produces some outstanding color patches.
buy now the new Sony Smear(tm)
