High ISO Studio Comparison

As is increasingly common the GR-D offers high ISO options - in this case ISO 800 and ISO 1600. Below you will find studio scene comparisons at both these settings.

Important note: The ISO 1600 shot was taken with an ND4 neutral density filter (2 stops less light) attached to the lens as the studio scene is too bright for the top shutter speed of 1/2000th.

Well it's noisy, and there's little fine detail left. There's not a lot more you can say really. The ISO 1600 image has very strong chroma noise, which gives all shadow areas a blue-ish sheen. Again, you could argue that the noise has an almost 'film like' grain to it, particularly the ISO 800 result, but ultimately it's still just lots of noise. Very much for emergency use (or very small prints) only.
