What ISO are you using? Are you shooting Raw or Jpeg? Are you exposed properly?

You look like you've somehow managed to set your ISO to 1600 or something without realizing it. That's what it looks like, anyway.

Yeah, this might be silly, but check your ISO...

yeah i just opened it up in photoscape to see what the settings were for that pic, and saw it was bumped to 1600...

but the others I did were done at 400-800 and were just as bad..

but is that the jist of the grain? just the ISO?

Yep Exif says 1600ISO. You need to readjust that

The ISO will be the main source of the noise, but under-exposing at 400 and 800 (especially on the 400D) will be a culprit as well. Actually, 800 ISO on the 400D could just be naturally noisy too. It is for many cameras of that level.

There is a 0.00001% chance that you could have had an over-heated sensor as well.

Well hmphf... I've been scratcing my head for a while now wondering what the heck i did on the darn camera to crew up everything more so than normal.. now i know.. I could have sworn I changed it tho, i just looked at all and everyone was set at 1600.. hmmmm thats odd..

If it makes you feel any better, I have the same problem with my XT(350d)!! I try not to shoot anything over 100ISO and if I do know they will not be print worthy. the noise on this rebel is F*&$%^%%^ing awful. That is why I am upgrading.Don't know when but soon.

In general, use the lowest "native ISO" for your camera--the lowest setting you can use. Probably 100-200--don't know what your camera will do. That will be your lowest noise ISO. Only move up from there if you need to, based on the conditions. Use the lowest ISO that will allow you to use the aperture and shutter speed combination you need to achieve your vision for the image.

well it does make me feel better knowing Im not the only one who can't figure this crap out.. lol I'd love to upgrade, but untill I get a little better i think I should hold on to that money and save it, that way I can upgrade good when I do.. hmm at my rate I may be able to afford the mark III if I'm saving till i get decent.. lol
