the 6400 and 3200 images. Yes, the noise is relatively low for the
ISO speed, but the quality and the colors look washed out and the
skin tones are not beautiful in high ISO.

I like the ISO400 samples a lot, they have a creamy, beautiful look,
generally people are way too obsessed with high ISO.

I have the Canon 5d and while it is said to be very low noise I try
not to use it above ISO200. Why? Because of the beautiful creamy look
in ISO 100.

For sport shooters it is good, pics dont need to be "creamy", but for
normal photographers it is meaningless.


Hi Berine,

post process will handle any issues with the higher asa's. when I shot the fuji s2 and s3 I preferred the skin tones at 320 and 400 asa. to me photography these days is about the capture more so than it used to be 10 years ago. all I need is a 'workable image' of my concept and I'm off and running.

warmest regards -bmb
