    Not that I will be upgrading to a D2X or D2H anytime soon (unless I win the megamillions lotto tonight that is), but I read about H1 or H2 ISO, just what does that equal?
    Just wondering

    1600 and 3200 respectively.
     
  3. Somehow I have made it my whole digital life without every going higher than ISO800. It is nice to know it's there if you need it but I submit that it normally doesn't get a lot of use. :biggrin:

    Cool Gordon - I'm the opposite. I have gone for weeks at a time without ever going under 800!

    UHL Hockey Season is coming up in a few weeks, my cameras will be set at ISO 1600 and rarely ever change once the season starts. I just wish my D70's had a little higher ISO than 1600.
     
  6. Even more cool Chris. :eek: :Smoking: Perhaps I should branch out and get out of my comfort zone.

    The value of Hi-1 and 2 depends on the camera.
    For the D2X, which is rated to ISO 800 only Hi-1 is 1600, 2 is 3200
    for the D2Hs or D2H which are rated to ISO 1600, Hi1 is 3200 and Hi2 is 6400.

    ISO 1600 is just fine on the D70, you should actually be glad you do not have a D2H or D2X under those conditions.
