ISO Range - Nikon D3

I thought I'd compare the ISO range on my Nikon D3. All the shots were taken at 70mm f2.8 on aperture priority. The subject isn't ideal I know but there is a variation of colour. The white balance was set at 5000k as the window was at my 3 o'clock and it was reasonably bright. I shot in both jpeg and raw, these are the jpegs straight from the camera. I have left them at 100% and only cropped them.


Full photo reduced to 10% of original size. ISO 200


ISO 200


ISO 400


ISO 800


ISO1600


ISO3200


ISO6400


ISO12800 (equiv)


ISO25600 (equiv)

Good comparison I've moved it here which is a more appropriate forum for camera reviews.

Re: ISO Range - Nikon D3

Speaks for itself.Hopefully,in a few years, the more mid-range models will be as good as this and I can pick a nice used one at a more realistic [for me] price!!

Re: ISO Range - Nikon D3

Looks pretty good there, certainly extremely usable up to 3200 without any problem at all. Goes a bit soft at 6400 (on this example) and then breaks up quite a bit for H1 and H2 but hey, even they are usable if it's a must get shot.

Interesting set and well taken. Would be interested to see coparisons like this from other top cameras. Care to show us what the 1Ds Mk III is like Dave? I know the 5DMkII has very good noise handling, have seen some excellent results at H1 of some band shots, all very usable because the small amount of noise that is there just works well in that type of shot anyway.

Anyone else got any others to show us?

Cheers,
Rob

Re: ISO Range - Nikon D3

Well I'm more intrigued than ever now ... after saying "Want one, want one" Dave's camera gear now says "Something new ... well s/h actually" but doesn't actually say what gear it is ... so are we to speculate that it's a D3

Actually, it is a Fuji s9500.

Thanks Graham

I note that the Fuji s9500 is an interim setup
