ISO and noise help
But everything I view images at 100% size, I can really see the noise but when I select fit on screen, there is very little or should i say less noticable.
So my question is, when I get something printed, will I get alot of noise showing or will I get very little like when i fit in view? even when I select view print size, the noise is bad.
I am using photoshop. So how do I handle this noise, I never know if there will be alot or less. Sorry if this is confusing. Yes i do some noise reduction if getting something printed.

Also, at ISO 400 or 800 it doesn't look like noise as much as it looks like grain. Grain isnt so bad, still looks appealing to look at.
I know you usually use aperture and I am unfamiliar with it. But you mention that you use photoshop. That being said, open the images through bridge into camera raw first. you'll have very nice tools for fighting noise in there. lynda.com can be a good resource for learning camera raw. they have a good course
So basically if i take a shot at high ISO and get the correct exposure, I really should worry bout what the noise looks like at 100%?

why dont you do a test print? I'm pretty sure it wont look bad. I've had to shoot at ISO 2000 and the client was satisfied. There are many instances where flash is unacceptable, and this is a good no flash image
I always add my Noise Reduction in Lightroom.. maybe you have such an option in Camera RAW too...
I am starting to learn to not bother the noise that comes of my 60D... and that camera is really shit in noise performance.
