Re: Barred Owl with P900 at ISO 1600 and 1/8s

Interesting observations. I would agree with your assessment.

The dynamic range is really the problem here. When he used "expose to the right", the potential noise problems associated with very dark areas are somewhat lessened. I would further speculate that Nikon in-body noise algorithms to process raw sensor date to generate JPGs could have a very uniform noise profile to deal with, hence very effectively achieving quite "noise-less" JPG results. Noise profiles for dark parts are very different from those of highlights or overexposed areas.
