When do you need more then 6400?
Mar 31, 2012

I am curious when all these people who put so much emphasis on high ISO actually use it.

I have been into photography for a few years now and I can likely count on 1 hand the number of times I desired more then 6400 ISO. The only time I can actually think of off hand was waking up before sunrise in the peru jungle to see a bird which dances. It was extremely dark and in the trees and I could have likely used 102K if it was decent. Otherwise I really can't think of another time.

I'm sure many can think of a time similar to mine where you could have used it but does that 1 time a year justify the emphasis put on High ISO in the forums?

So what situations have you wishing for clean HIGH ISO(over 6400)?
