OK, everyone says that the highest useable ISO for the D2X is 800. Sure, 800 is a lot better than HI2, but for some purposes, the HI settings could be at least "useable". Check this out: it's not a great photo by any means, but the remarkable fact to me is that it was shot in pretty dark conditions with no flash, and still captured a memory. D2X, HI2 (3200), 85mm. RAW, converted with RSE, then PS+NN. The D2X is such an awesome camera. I'm having fun just goofing around with it and learning in the process.

Pat,

That is a pretty good demonstration of the new X noise. Actually looks pretty good to me.

Funny how some people's perceptions become fact. In this case, it's the "D2X has terrible noise at high ISO".

Your shot is a fine example of how such a thing is a perception and not a fact. It looks better, and has retained significantly more detail than any of my D100 shots at high ISO even after processing that includes NI.

Hi Pat,

I am too late for the picture. It is gone now however I agree with you that having fun with it is a great learning process. That's what I have been doing around the house and reading the manual when I get time to read it. I am up to page 85 :)

Oops....

Here is an even BETTER one (cross posted on DPR). D2X/ISO 3200/85 1.4--RAW converted with RSE/then PS for NN/sizing/sharpening. This just blows me away. I shot this IN a car, IN the dark garage--it was DARK--and I fing it quite useable.

That didn't do it either. Image is corrupted.

Hi Pat,

I agree, this is a usable image.

Two questions for you. First, did you use a flash and second, did you run this through a noise program?

Thanks and cute boy,
