Back-Button Auto Focus

Shutting down all the in camera processing
for better noise control:


In the camera:
In Custom function I
1. Turn off the 1/3 step ISO stops.

In Custom function II
1. Turn off the AutoLight Optimizer
2. Disable the high tone priority
3. Set the high ISO NR to low or disable

Shoot RAW
Process the files in DPP
In the DPP preferences set the Noise reduction defaults to 0 and 0.
Then do any NR in a third party software.



As always expose to the right.

Way too cool!  Thanks for posting this.  I just reset my XTi to "3" which gives me auto focus with the back button.  Can't wait to get out and try it.

High iso noise removal
Here is my basic processing for wildlife shots at high ISO.

1.) adjust saturation, shadows/highlights, levels to taste
2.) overall noise removal. Go to filter-noise-remove noise. I usually use a general setting of 10 for strength, preserve detail, 90%, remove color noise 10%
3.) duplicate my background layer. I usually name it "sharp mask"
4.) click on the "sharp mask" layer and then sharpen using filter-sharpen-smart sharpen. My settings vary, but for high ISO shots I will sometimes use 150-200 with a radius of 0.3. For lower ISO, I usually use 130% @ 0.3 radius.
5.) click on the "background layer" I then remove the noise in the out of focus areas. Go to filter-noise-remove noise. I set my settings to 10 for strength, preserve detail 0%, remove color noise 10%. I will sometimes run this more than once for high ISO's (like on the shots posted).
6.) click on the "sharp mask" layer and then go to layer-layer mask-hide all. Then select a paint brush and make sure that the foreground color is set to white. Then click on the mask (to the right of the layer in the layer pallet. Should look like a box filled with solid black). Now I simply paint over the areas that I want to be sharp. These areas will have less noise reduction (the first "general" setting) and also have the sharpening applied.

* You can also use a similar setting in general for selective sharpening. Just take out the steps that have to do with noise removal. I like to keep my sharpening selective rather than global to reduce the noise in the background that is common in images with a blurred background. Why sharpen a blurred background right?

*hint- you can see the areas you've masked in the black "layer mask" box. I always look at this to see if I miss any areas that I should have sharpened. This can be time consuming, but I find selective sharpening/noise reduction usefu

Remote flash things to remember.
1. aperture controls light from flash.
2. shutter speed controls ambient light.
3. inverse square law.
4. flash to subject distance.
