    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.

    Regards,

    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.

  4. Good shot proving the point Patrick! And I agree with you, the D2x in thee right light conditions does really well with ISO 1600 even!

    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.
