"High ISO test"


Phoenix, US
          

I used my 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5
f/3.5@18mm ISO 3200 shutter 1/25
I usually leave my ISO on auto max 1600 @ 1/30
but decided if it's the difference of getting the shot
or not noise shouldn't factor in.
Not bad I guess for wide open at 3200.

Very true. A sharp, well focused but noisy image is far, far better than a blurry anything.

Besides, you can have a go at a high ISO image with noise reduction software in post, either tonight when you get it onto a computer or three years from now when Super Duper NR version 23.103 comes out with complete "read my mind" optimization... pretty much nothing is going to save a shot that suffers from motion blur of more than a couple of pixels.

Thanks for the response. I'm sure there will be ISO noise reduction programs that will deal with about anything. Fix noise make $$$.

I went ahead and changed my max ISO to HI 1 and shot the same room. This time the 1/30 min shutter was met and the ISO went to .7 EV over 3200. I don't know what that means but it works.

Hi Tom,

.7 EV over ISO 3200 means 2/3rds of a stop over ISO 3200 ~ ISO 5000.
In other words your image was captured at the equivalent of ISO 5000.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks for the information. ISO 5000 doesn't look so bad, not
great but not bad.

It also depends on usage. I agree that it's not bad for internet posting. If you try to make a 20 x 30 print from it, you might not be so happy with it, at least not without considerable post processing work.

Not to be confused with long EXP noise reduction.

I did an experiment with the in camera noise reduction. I batch processed these in Capture NX2 with the software noise reduction turned off.
I really can't tell much difference. Maybe off to high there is a little more softness in the high.

ISO 3200
f/5
shutter 1/15

OFF
