More d800 high ISO samples with RAW files

You can download the raw files. The password on the file hoster is gmurczyk

Raw files open with Lightroom 4. You can also update your Adobe Camera Raw plugin if you haven't already.

My mind is blown. There are two sets of raw files - one with correct exposure, and one with underexposure. They are all taken in a dark room - ambient is ISO100, f8 and 5 seconds exposure. That's a good test of high ISO.

Taking an underexposed shot at iso6400, boosting it by +0.66 stops, then adding some shadow fill and it STILL looks good.

Turning all noise reduction OFF shows that this sensor is amazing. There is chroma noise but it is very fine, and not huge blotches. Simply sliding the "colour" slider to +20 solves that.

ISO25,600 isn't great, but still useable if you are more generous with the noise reduction. The main problem is the loss in saturation and the colour changes, but they are repairable in lightroom.
