Most photographers obsessed with high ISO are young and inexperienced.

Do old and experienced photographers only take photos of dead people?

You're showing your inexperience.

You got me. I am inexperienced at having one, and only one, option for getting quality pictures of people in low light. I have never been so constrained in all my time shooting with Nikon DSLRs (since 2009). Certainly, since purchasing a D3S about a year and half ago, I have never felt I didn't have at least a chance of getting a decent shot in any available light situation, moving subject or not.

If you may, please fill me in on how depressing it used to be when the only option you had was flash. Considering that you've constrained yourself as such for this long, you must have TONS of experience with this.

Just to be clear, I have plenty of experience using flash in low light situations either as a main light or fill light with low to medium ISO settings respectively, on and off camera, with and without modifiers, but I have never been so limited as you have as always been where high ISO shooting was not an option.
