I just remembered about this picture last night when I was telling somebody about the Hi ISO capabilities of the Nikon D700. For me this picture is a turning point in my way of thinking about digital photography. This is the image that put my faith in the HI ISO capabilities of the current generation Niikon FX cameras (D700, D3 D3s D3X). This is my bench mark image!
Shot at ISO 4000, F/2.8 at 1/60 sec. RAW converted to JPG in Capture NX2 – no edits! I don’t think anybody can argue the quality when previously I would not consider shooting over ISO 800 on previous generation cameras.
And now we even have the D3s … what will come next???
