Because I am of the opinion that getting the photo is more important than rejecting the conditions on the basis that a high ISO is necessary, I do find myself operating qiuite frequently at ISO's of 1000 to 1250. This is my choice. Now there seem to be various Photoshop CS plug-ins that are specifically designed for this problem, and I wondered which, if any, outside of those in P/Shop CS. and Nikon Capture are worth considering. I have read really good reports on something called a NOISE NINJA and I am fairly sure that RAWMAGIC has a facility for doing this type of application. See- www.michaelalmond.com/articles//noise for review and comparisons. In 2005, hopefully with a D2X, I am going to be concentrating on insects and perhaps some birds in flight. Dragonflies move at 50-70mph and butterflies- bees wasps are not that slow through the air. So high ISO's are likely to be the order of the da, and forewarned is forearmed. BW. Bob F.
