TOPIC: Nikon D3100, 12800 ISO

Nikon D3100, 12800 ISO 4 years 5 months ago #1588

I haven't really touched any ISO range above 1600 in my D3100 since I got it last year, and recently realized 3200 isn't really that bad. But I've been testing the Hi-1(6400) and Hi-2(12800) ISOs and it got me wondering, are they really as awful as people say? I mean of course they aren't ideal and pros don't have to deal with it, but do they really make images unusable? I want to know what other people think.

By the way, I edited all of these experimental shots, so they're not the originals.

I think they look great! The higher iso just adds noise, which seems to work well with the pictures u have here.... as a general rule for my stuff if i have to go that high i will generally edit them as b&w just looks better in my opinion.... as for your photos, well done.

It looks very good.

I think when you use a proper Noice Reduction filter, you can take out the noice out of that, because the noice looks editable to me.

Good luck on it, hope to see more of that good stuff.

I don't have a problem with them, you just need proper exposure.

It looks like I underexposed them?

In my opinion you did not underexposed them. I mean, the noice is there but it does not hurt met much.

It won't go for the stock images, unless you give it an old look.

Oh for sure. I wouldn't dare try making prints of these, unless I wanted to see how the ISO looks in person.

I am curious about what you get when you make a A4 print, or maybe even bigger.

Are you planning to do that?

No I wasn't planning on doing that.
