I understand.
And don't worry.
I still intend on covering this area of the case study.
However, there are very good reasons to cover the highest sensitivities, and I'd like to maintain that if at all possible.
I do have another 51200 sample to work with, but as it turns out, it is underexposed and quite a handful to process.

Having said that, I just got work from dgaies that he is 90% certain to replace the file without an eV push. And so I'm going to continue preparing my workflow(thread) and leave it open for the new sample.
Hi John,
For the tutorial on the high iso work, for pp do you use ACR or LR3? On average, would just one have as good a results?

John Bee,

I notice that in LR, you set saturation level at -25. What is the purpose of that? Does it make the NR process easier?

Damn nice showing by Pentax with this camera. I am very impressed with the picture quality, DR/ISO is superb. K7 replacement in the future.

Beautiful Skin Tone

And of course, you'll have to resaturate the file afterward
This is how far I got, your image has a balance to it that is perfect. I don't know what you used to get it to have a beautiful skin tone like that, how did you resaturate the file?

Hi, I can't see the image.
However, all I did to adjust saturation afterward was an adjustment layer in Photoshop(specifically red channel also).

Okay, I can see the image now,
All I can see missing here would be a slight red channel adjustment(or maybe a warm filter).
And then you can finish it off with some sharpening or microcontrast adjuster.

...And so, I beleive the proper term here is: 'K-5 OWNAGE!'...
The K-5 (coupled w/the Sigma 70-200 HSM II) has completely renewed my joy in taking photographs. (approximating here) I took something like 15,000 photos my first year of ownership, and about 5000 the next two. ...but now, I'm back!

Here is what i got. LR 3.2 No edit direct export to Jpeg then Noiseware Community Free Edition.
Custom Settings:
Noise Suppresion : (Luminance & Color) 90%; +1 Sharpening
K-5 Really have a lot of detail you can exploit at higher ISO.

(Please pardon me for such a low level question)

Does this example show the greatness of the software in NR or the greatness of K5?

What if it wasnt the K5 that did the shot?

(I'm a fan of pentax, don't shoot me =P )
hmm, well for one, most other cameras won't even go up to ISO 51,200
