Sony A99 - really high and low ISO shots



Sony A99 - raw - ISO 12800



Sony A99 - raw - ISO 8000



This is a crop from a jpeg image (not 100%) - ISO 8000 - shot @200mm AND the zoom function on the A99

I know the above image is grainy, but considering that this was shot with the zoom function on the A99 and it is a jpeg image I am quite pleased.

And two ISO 50 shots:





Thanks for looking.

Stef.

Awesome shots.  The high iso stuff is still amazing more.  I think of all the bad shots when the kids were in. School.  Soon the great ray gun will take out the morons with p&s cameras.

Thanks John for your kind comments.

Here is another one: ISO 10000 - raw



Sony A99 - raw - ISO 10000

And this one was shot in JPEG (!) @ ISO 8000 with the Sony 70-200G lens @200mm AND the 2x telezoom function in the A99.



Sony A99 - jpeg - ISO 8000 - no noise reduction in camera norpost-processing

All jpegs posted here have NO noise reduction in camera and the last one none in post-processing either.

Re: Sony A99 - really high and low ISO shots

A nice example how well the focus limiter can work. ISO4000 - shot in raw



Sony A99 - ISO 4000 - raw - focus limiter

The one thing that impresses me the most with the high ISO shots is that I have next to no post-processing work to do. With the A900 I had to use first noise reduction in lightroom and then noise ninja/ neat image or similar to reduce the noise further in CS6. No more need for that.
