"RE: High ISO, I don't Get It"

It greatly depends on need. In my own case, I am a sports photographer. And if I want my images to be used by the athletic department at the university, they need to meet a certain technical standard. If they don't meet the standard, I don't get published, and I don't make money.

I shot plenty of Tri-X. And we pushed it to ISO 1600 and put it in the paper. But at the time that was the VERY BEST we could do. Today, we can certainly do much better. When the D2x was a new camera, that was the BEST WE COULD DO, and it's noise signature was as good as or better than film. And many pros made the switch to digital at that point. The D3 re-wrote the book, and we've been getting better ever since.

Now, people who shoot in studios with plenty of light don't have this worry. Nor do people who shoot landscapes, or those who shoot outside on sunny days. But for those of us who ply our trade capturing fast events in the dark, this is crucial. And we'll use the best technology available. Or at least the best we can afford.

Sorry if you don't "get that".
