Re: Trick: correctly pushing D800 to higher (ISO) limits

Just nitpicking but what you are describing is not a bias frame but a dark frame.

A bias frame is a capture of the read noise and is done with a very short exposure with the lens cap on.

A Dark frame is the same ISO and exposure and ideally at the same temp.
