SX50 - High ISO not so "high"

I've shot this small "hawk" of some kind from inside my home, through a window.

Because of the low light and to get the shot before it leaves the bird bath, I've quickly set the ISO at 2000 to get a decent shutter speed and this is the result.

Although not 100% noise free, I think it shows how far the quality of high ISO has come and how well the SX50 performs with such a high ISO.

Not so long ago, I wouldn't have dreamed to use ISO 2000 - now I can - IMO.

Thanks for the visit and your possible views or comments.

Regards from South Africa
