Canon 1300D lots of noise (even with low ISO)

Hi everyone,

 

I'm having big issues with my CANON 1300D. As the title says, I'm having a lot of noise in most of my pictures even if the ISO is at 200.

 

For example that picture (beside the fact that it's overexposed, it's a good example) :

IMG_0760_compressed_cropped.jpg

 

There it's cropped a little bit then you can see it clearly :

 

IMG_0760_compressed_cropped2.jpg

 

It's 10 times worse than my smartphone.

 

It does the same thing with both my lenses so it doesn't seem to come from there.

I had the same issue before with a compact camera I bought, I resetted it and for some reason it solved the problem but there it doesn't...

 

At the moment I'm traveling and it's a bit frustrating to take pictures with my smartphone lol so I hope you can help me there! Smiley Happy

You appear to be confusing out of focus areas with noise.

 

You used an f/18 aperture, this causes diffraction, and reduces image quality.

With a crop sensor camera you don't want to stop down past f/11 and ideally want to use f/8.

Also what 'Picture Style' are you using?

 

Here is the photo with some post processing to adjust exposure and add some sharpness and vibrance, but, WITHOUT any 'noise reduction'.

Thank you for your quick answer.

It might be a stupid question but how do you know I used a f/18 aperture without me telling it to you? I don't even know what was the aperture on this picture since it's not one I took.

Also, I just tried to take a picture with a f/5.6 aperture and a nice sunlight outside and it's still the same problem so it doesn't seem to be the problem I have.

 

This is one of the many pictures I took that have noise on it.

I tried pictures with :

-a lot of sunlight, some sunlight, not much sunlight

-landscapes, people or animals

-long shutter speed or short shutter speed

-big aperture, small aperture

 

Almost nothing changes the problem. I even resetted the camera but nothing changed.

TTMartin -> I don't use anything yet in most of my pictures I just take them and like them the way they are.

The picture you posted had the EXIF information which showed it was taken at 18mm, 1/80. f/18, ISO 200

What you are seeing is a lack of sharpness, not noise. There are a lot of things that can cause a photo not to be sharp. If nothing is sharp then you need to start to narrow down the cause. Too small an aperture, too slow a shutter speed (1/80 was fine), making sure the lens is set to AF and IS is ON. 

Are you using the viewfinder or liveview and holding up in front of you and taking the picture in liveview using the rear LCD?

Picture Style is a setting in the camera, not a program.

 

Standard is best if you are not going to do any post processing.

I'm not seeing noise either, though I'm viewing it small on my phone. Definitely not sharp in places though. 

 

Are you selecting juat one AF point (the center one is usually the most accurate) or are you letting the camera pick several af points out on its own?  Better you pick one and you keep it over the subject.  Also don't do focus and recompose unless you are stoped down a lot, though you were stopped down in these.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Oh ok, thank you for all the information.
I use standard yes.
I use the viewfinder most of the time.

ScottyP ->

 

"Also don't do focus and recompose unless you are stoped down a lot, though you were stopped down in these. " -> What do you mean by "recompose" and "stopped down" there ?

"Are you selecting juat one AF point (the center one is usually the most accurate) or are you letting the camera pick several af points out on its own?" -> I didn't change anything about the AF point, I haven't found how to set it so far, I'll have a look if it can change something.

 

I don't understand though because I used to have a compact camera I was taking lots of really nice pictures with it without knowing about all those settings...
