    Shot a school play tonight and was messing around at intermission in the dark...

    I don't get all the Nikon high ISO hate, I think this looks damn good for 6400 ISO. :coold:

    There's no high-ISO hate for the new Nikons. The only people that still complain are jealous Canon fanboys.

    The d40 (latest 6mp APS-C CCD) and the CMOS Nikons (d300, d3, etc) handle noise really well.

    I try and not go above 1600 iso normally, but that's impressive. :cool:

    Im not trying to hate, just throwing this out there in case you didnt know


    Downsizing and going BW are the two best ways to deal with noise

    Also while in here. What noise software does everyone use?

    Noise ninja causes some pretty hefty ringing/banding even with lower settings.

    I've turned to just using the built in noise reduction with Lightroom. It does really well with chroma noise and I really hate banding.

    That and the color problems you start getting at higher iso.

    Whenever I run NR, I do it through DPP because it works the best with Canon files.

    i shoot nikon and this isn't very convincing. i mean, it's just not a good picture to show off high iso because of lack of objects to show off detail, black and white. etc
