I am interested to know what's the highest ISO image you have had accepted here and what camera it was with. Of course high ISO is to be avoided but with todays camera I wonder what the highest is now compared with older camera.

I know of people who've got images here taken at ISO1600 but I'm pretty sure some post-capture noise reduction is necessary. I personally don't like to go above ISO400 and I have plenty of images here taken at that sensitivity, without the use of noise reduction.

ISO 1000 for me, taken with a 50D. I use it routinely up to ISO 400, 800 when needed any rarely above that.

I have a shot in the DB shot at ISO 1600 with a Canon 400D.

I have one in the DB at ISO 1600 and one or two at ISO 800 with my 40D.

As a 400D owner, I'd have to say that that's pretty adventurous! Would you mind indicating which shot it is?

Here? They will really need to be something special! I wouldn't bother with 3200 on my D700, and it's a full two stops better than the 7D

For me this one. ISO1600 on a 40D:

For me it is far more interesting if you guys can share how you process such shots. The one I have posted at ISO1600 required very little noise reduction since almost everything in the photo is either completely dark(black) or very light and hence the noise is not as outstanding. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to noise reduction and so I used Neat Image with auto settings. I honestly have absolutely no idea what all those bars with percentages mean.

A bit off topic but the most ISO I have ever seen on airliners is probably this one. ISO6400

I would be very interested if Mr. Michael van der Mee can share some tips about high ISO processing.

I did moderate noise reduction on those - but nothing too special. It didn't take long to edit them at all - the magic is in the camera itself. For the A380, I used Neatimage, the others, Topaz Denoise.

ISO3200, 1/8sec, 280mm, F/5.6, Aperture Priority. Nikon D700


That's another one at ISO3200. I used Nik Software DFine 2.0 for Photoshop CS4 (I have Master Collection). It is a superb bit of software and is extremely intelligent. It leaves Neatimage and Topaz Denoise in the dust - even on the automatic settings.

That ISO 3200 image posted earlier required the usage of Noise Ninja (services thankfully provided by Tony). The new Lightroom 3.0 noise reduction has been a godsend for me, and I've had plenty of ISO 800 shots up here that look very good in the raw converter. A year ago, those shots would not have been accepted. I'll shoot ISO 400 in broad daylight just to get an extra stop of shutter speed; there's really very little noise difference between that and ISO 200. 800 has a little degradation, 1600 has more, 3200 has a lot.

The key, as always, is to nail your exposure. If you don't push your shadows, most noise reduction should be good.
