There seems to be an obsession with high ISO and low noise at the moment. Perhaps this has always been the case since digital overtook film.

I remember buying ISO 800 film with the sole purpose of introducing noise/film grain into my pics. And with current SLR and mirrorless cameras able to shoot 1600 easily with limited noise - when printing anyway - I wonder what the priorities are for photographers these days?

I have canon SLR and a mirrorless and, with both of them, I can shoot pretty much into pitch dark and get a usable result. Maybe I'm just getting old and grouchy, but it seems almost wrong to me.

Anyway...
