Why the High Iso interest ?
Feb 20, 2009

I'm wondering why for many of us it is so important to have perfect results at 800, 1600, 3200 or more Iso ?

It seems that all these photographers use to shot at night or maybe they are living near the North Pole were the night is 6 month a year ?

I'm probably too old as I remember when the 27 Din - 400 Asa (these time the Iso was not in use) was near the maximum for having acceptables shots.
If I'm not wrong 90% of the shots are outdoor in sunny or like / sunny days.

In my opinion it should be better look at the lenses, at the technical specs , at the manual control etc....

So, why so high interest to compare different cameras only in relation at the result at super-high Iso ?
