  1. 5000 ISO 2.8

    1. 102760989.

    2. Cropped it this way to see action on either side, could of tighten it.

    102760988.

    3. 102760986.

    4. 102760985.

    Needs more sharping, but I thought action was good:

    102760990.

    ISO 5000 is very usable as I found out this week! Heck I would go as much to say ISO 7000 as well.

    These look good and to be honest your lights seem pretty solid to be able to get a shutter of 1/800th. Heck even at ISO 10000 I could barely get a shutter of 1/500

    Now these are the kind of shots I'd like to get on the regular basis! (or just to get them a first time! :smile:) 

    Really good.

    What camera & lens are you using?
    No I'm not suggesting the camera and lens made the photo. I know they are just tools in the hands of a craftsman. But it don't stop me from hoping. :smile:

    Wow Craig, the image quality is wonderful and if these are without noise reduction, they are way off the charts. We keep reading how stellar the D3 is, your images jut reinforce that fact. I think it is rather obvious that owning this camera body will help us take our photography to that next level.
