marcio_napoli: Anyone who knows my posting history, knows I couldn't care less for high ISO.

But back in the day, Nikon presented a series of images on their website, and among them there was a musician shot (jazz, I think?) at "clean" ISO 6400.

Back in 2007, ISO 6400 setting was rare as Scarlett Johansson's twin sisters, but *considerably clean* ISO 6400 was nothing short of unheard of.

It was FREAKING ALIEN TECH.

It was so freakish that I remember showing that image to a national level photographer, and he said "obviously fake !!!".

When a renowned photographer (Nikon shooter BTW) thinks Nikon would risk their reputation releasing an official fake shot, you know things got scary.

I'm a ISO 25 shooter (ISO 25, not 25.000), but I remember this particular image as the game changing moment in digital photography history.

anything clean at iso 800 then above was game changing back in the day

james s. kennedy: I collect cameras and have over 200 film cameras. Leica M2, 3, 4 and 6, about 10 screwmounts. Every top of the line Nikon except the F6. All three versions of the Canon F-1, 3 Canon T90s, Minoltas, Pentaxes, Voigtlanders, Zeiss galore. My wife doesnt know an f-stop from a doorstop, and tells me that on my demise, she will have a huge garage sale, any camera for $5, since they all look alike to her. I am over 80. I also collect pens, pocket knives, books, handbags, porn movies. I admit to being a nut.

The quality of film vs. digital is beyond my visual powers but digital al is lightyears ahead in convenience, most importantly instant gratification. Also have iPads and an iPhone 7+, and view most photos on an iPad.

My current favorites are the Panasonic ZS100 and ZS50. Also like the Fuji XPro1, and Sonys 6, 7 and a6000. Really love using old lenses with adaptors on the Sonys.

I second the motion to include a film forum.

hoping you live to 150 & keep collecting just to p#ss of your wifey

AbrasiveReducer: Dedicating the Research & Development Division to research and development sounds like a savvy move to me.
