Ok...here goes. Some quick shots D850 at different ISO's low light

  1. Ok some of my amateur renderings of some of the first images I managed to quickly take at a bbq this evening:
    iso 3200
    DSC_0105-X2.

    iso 6400:
    and a major major crop:
    DSC_0117-X3.

    iso 5000:
    DSC_0113-X3.

    iso 11,400:
    DSC_0135-X3.

    iso 12,800:
    Maggie relaxing:
    DSC_0148-X3.
     
  2. And another at 12800
    DSC_0126-X2.

    Getting dark now.
     
  3. These look great but at this size I care more about your opinion.

    What do you think ?
    Is it noticeably better than D500 ? D810 ?

    Thanks for doing this bob
     
  4. My eyes tell me that I would have no hesitation in setting my upper limit ISO at 6400. For my other bodies I hated going above d500 1600 and 2000 for my D810. Noise has a cleaner look - hate the d500 noise! I want to test it out today for my normal shooting preferences. And my typical post processing. The shots above were to satisfy curious low light shooters and were soc except for resizing and cropping. The original raw files look clean at 3200 and even 6400
     
  5. I was actually surprised at the ISO 12800 shots ( Maggie relaxing ) to my eyes there is a definite improvement over my other camera bodies - even the d810. Though this could have been due to the environment at that time.
     
  6. Thx bob
    It looks like another almost fooled by useless tests by the testing pros
     
  7. This is why I hesitated. Real world examples and real use examples are ever so much more useful. :)

    Still on the fence but leaning towards "yes"...but still going to hold off until inventory gets better.
     
  8. Yeah I hesitated posting these high ISO images 1 because I have no need to shoot at ISO above 6400 - I understand others do. 2 I didn't want to reignite a pixel peeping war. Bottom line. I very much like what I see and am confident it suits my needs. Oh yeah did I mention I was floored by the focus acquision speed when paired with the 300 PDF and 1.4 tc .
     
  9. Thanks Bob. Your experience and opinion I do value.
     
  10. I too am grateful. Fortunately, B&H has a return policy so I will try it out and decide for myself, but looks promising. By the way - I am not particularly interested in 12,800, but sure am at 3200 and 6400
     
  11. You're very welcome Nick...Glad that I could share my opinion with you.
    Sound like a plan Rick..you need to decide for your self to see whether it suits your shooting style. And I as well am not interested in much beyond 6400.
