Pretty nice for 6400. Wow.
wow. let me say that again. wow
This camera is going to be a big winner for Nikon.
Nikon guy here, no its an fx lens.
Canon guy here so I don't know, but isn't the 24-120mm f/4G ED VR a DX lens? So is this shot in DX mode?
No it is a FX lens
Amazing how many people do not understand what higher ISO sensitivities are 'really' for...
Sure, there are situations where you want/need to capture an image in low lighting such as this, and this is very acceptable noise performance (compare the same shot with the D800 then view at 1:1 pixel, you won't see better performance). However it is not the primary purpose of higher ISO...
The real reason for higher sensitivities is to maintain shutter speed for your subject. Situations where you could very well capture a properly exposed image at 1/60s at ISO100 but because of movement you need to bump the shutter up to subject freezing speeds. In those situations you will not have the visible low detail artifacts and noise, even at 1:1 pixel peeping, because there was enough light to begin with just not for the faster shutter speed desired..
It would be great if the masses would stop worrying about whether a camera can capture images, hand-held, at 1/125s shutter speeds, in the dark.. =/
"It would be great if the masses would stop worrying about whether a camera can capture images, hand-held, at 1/125s shutter speeds, in the dark.. =/"
Right! Because then the masses wouldn't be worrying so much!
I agree that freezing motion is a prime use of higher ISO settings, but I don't agree that this use is not so affected by noise because there is "enough light to begin with".
By the time you have upped the shutter speed a few stops to freeze motion the duration for which light is hitting the sensor is greatly reduced giving under-exposure at the sensor. The higher ISO setting simply applies in-camera amplification to brighten the image to a nominally correct exposure - no different in principle to raising shadows in PP, except it is applied across all parts of the image.
The under-exposure at the sensor when using higher than base ISO reduces the signal to noise ratio. The better the SNR at base ISO, the better the image you will get at higher ISO settings, so for this reason, this aspect of performance is a valid concern, regardless of the reason for the low light at the sensor - be it due to low ambient light levels or very short exposure times in good ambient light levels.
looks good for 6400ISO
Fuji X-E1...here I come :-)
You're kidding, right? You do see ISO 6400 in the header?
Looks just like D700, does it not? Or am I just tired of upgrading...
How about left side AF? Like D800 :-/?
It does not have same AF module as D800. Do try to find facts before spiting out dumb remarks.
