D50 ISO vs. D70 ISO

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by ShaunK, Apr 17, 2007.

  1. I've heard it explained that the reason some cameras are better at higher ISO's is related to their pixel count... fewer pixels crammed onto the sensor. I don't know it that's the main reason, but my question is, if the D70s, which I have, and the D50 are both the same sensor, same pixel count, why is the D50 so much better (or at least better known) for its low noise? Why couldn't Nikon have accomplished that with the D70s also?

    Some will say that the D50 has a more aggressive in-camera processing to clean up the noise than the D70(s). Noise reduction software, like Noise Ninja, is available to do the same for the D70(s).
