Not Anymore...because HIGH ISO has gotten so GOOD

Is 1 stop worth the $1200?

  • 6 years ago = YES
  • Today = NO

6 years ago, I was shooting with Canon 30d and Rebel XTi.  30d iso3200 is very noisy, and Rebel XTi is hardware limited @iso1600.  The only way to gain FASTER SHUTTER-SPEED (while keeping noise reasonable) was a Faster Lens.

But today, I have another option of High ISO bump to increase my SHUTTER-SPEED.  Canon 60d has rather good iso3200/iso6400 performance, even iso12,800 clean up nicely after NR.
