Looks excellent at ISO 3200

This is what he has to say on his blog

@1600 ISO it's great
@3200 ISO it's solid
@6400 ISO it's passable in certain circumstances

How much ISO did we really gain over a D90?

Also, is the D7000 made in Japan?

The "kit lens" and the D7000 and native jpeg....look like my D90's RAW files through NX2.

Nikon I think is compressing a lot less in jpegs on this camera and to me it's apparent.

can't wait for the test results. This camera has legs.

On screen: 1/3 EV.

In print: 1 EV.

On screen numbers that you quoted appears less to me.

If ISO 3200 is solid, I'm sold. Which it should be. Combine that with the extra pixils and I'm done.... well until the D300S replacement comes out

I have heard and experienced that ISO 1600 is usable on my D90...and it is usable...now sold in my definition of solid...it would mean that the D7000's ability to handle ISO 3200 is equal to the D90's ability to shoot at ISO 640 in good light.

It's subjective until we see detailed teats.

Let me put it this way to ya, if you can clean this up at 3200 then I'll take two, and this ain't bad. 40% crop.

Best,

Sorry, but nobody's going to risk a DPR ban, just to show you some detailed teats. There's plenty of other places on the internet that you can go to for that kind of stuff.

On screen means per pixel.

In print means at the same printing size (where the 16,2 MP vs the 12,3 MP give the D7000 an advantage).

Re: D7000 review and High ISO images from Chase Jarvis blog

Although the Chase Jarvis pic looks good, I don't think it is representative of the real quality of ISO3200 for the D7000.

The image was captured in a crappy streetlight, probably mercury vapor. The color spectrum of such lights is very limited, with almost no blues.

That would explain the bluish blotches in the photo, when the WB tries to compensate for the horrible light.

I am sure that ISO3200 will look much better in dim sunlight, or deep shade in daylight.
