Max usable iso gx7: a duck in the bush
3 months ago

Went for a wander by the local river with the wife. Access is difficult so I didnt take my backpack with my tripod, instead just camera and 45-200. Found this duck sat in a tree so tried to get some shots but really struggled with the light.

Habitually I shoot in aperture priority as my copy is only sharp around f7. Gradually increased the iso till i was getting ss > 300 (aiming for >400 at 200mm).

I still think theres too much noise even after some heavy NR.

What iso do people find is the max usable for the gx7??
