Re: Use NR software to get close to Z6 FF

The Z6 will give you about 2 stops so it can use, for example, ISO 6400 which would be pretty similar to ISO 1600 with the G9. That means that if both are taken at the same aperture that the Z6 will allow 2 stops higher shutter speed.

But, since, naturally, money enters the equation and you already have the G9 and lens then I suggest that using some software can greatly improve your G9 high ISO, low light shots. Topaz Denoise AI and DXO DeepPrime can do wonders. Of course, the software can be used on the Z6 also, but we are talking about improving the G9 raw files enough that you can use what you have and get close to what the Z6 can produce. With the software you could shoot, for example, at ISO 6400 and get close to what the Z6 can do at ISO 6400 without the NR software.

Good helpful points Henry - but no seriously high ISO needed here or in its follow up thread.

I sometimes wonder if those that comment on stage photography have ever practised it
