Re: D800 Noise Interesting, could we have had this discussion with film?

Like everyone else on this thread, I am paranoid about noise in a new camera. That's why I am stuck with my D700..

But, we are a bit weird, I can remember shooting with 200iso agfa opima II, because the 400 iso was too grainy. I also did a private shoot that required Ilford HP3 to be pushed to 3200iso, that is 3 stops. 'used a Nikon FEII and 50mm f1.4 AI Nikkor, and, thought I was doing really well.

Sigh, here we are, being critical of cameras that take very clean pictures at 3200 iso and above, in colour!

Oh well, back to worrying about whether my RX100 shots are better than my D700, or, the tests I did on.....
