In response to some requests, here are some shots showing ISO 6400 standard mode vs. Handheld Twilight Mode where the camera takes 6 shots in rapid sequence and merges them to reduce noise. It looks like it gives about a 3 stop advantage in noise reduction. It works only for static subjects however but does not require a tripod. These shots are all without a tripod. The glass sculpture of Christ is in very low light conditions - an unlit room with dim light coming from a window 12 feet away taken at ISO 6400. The hurricane lamp shot is low light from a window about 6 feet away in an unlit room taken at ISO 5000. 100% Crops of standard mode and handheld twilight follow the full size images.

Note the crops of the cross shots are not at the point of focus but were selected to show the most noise vs. best focus point. In each case the HHT crop follows the std mode shot. Click an image for full size.
