I don't know, I rarely shoot higher than ISO 800. ISO 400 is really more like it. I wonder if all those years shooting film has developed a mind set in me that refuses to believe higher ISO could POSSIBLY be any good?

I've seen some good work done at higher ISO (and to be fair, some dreck), but there IS this ceiling beyond which I get pretty uncomfortable.

Then too, I rarely shoot in darkened theatrical venues and while I have a long lens, I rarely use it. If I can't get up close and personal, I really don't get all that excited about shooting it. And I'm comfortable with flash.

But I wonder, does my shooting style come from my prejudices, or do my prejudices come from how I shoot? I have no idea which is more 'correct'.
