It is really remarkable to get such a clean and good result from ISO 6400. I suspect the skill of the photographer has something to do with the camera punching above it's weight. Congratulations with getting this shot just right.

Beautiful picture...a wall hanger in my estimation. Wonderful bokeh, great expression on the face of the fox. The colours...red and green...go well together.

I've been using SLR's since 1968 and I recall back in the film days how the ASA (ISO) of yesterdays' film was limited to 25, 50, 100, 200, 400.....etc. I used Tri-X B+W film a lot back then...think it was 'fast' film at 400, which I sometimes pushed higher. But the grain (now called noise) back then was so extreme that you could trip over it.

Looking at your K3 at high ISO and nary a grain/noise to be seen...shows me how wonderful modern, digital technology has come from the old film days.

BTW, I still also use my film cameras...I like to use all mediums for photography.

Thanks Les.
I have been shooting quite a bit at high ISO with the K3 and whilst it, "most of the time", shows noisy images, sometimes one gets lucky and nails the exposure. As long as I don't underexpose, the results are rather satisfying ... This is coming from a guy (me) who complains regularly about the noisy rendering of the K3 at higher ISO settings.
Frankly, I have somewhat better results with my good old K5 for this type of image. On the other hand, the K3 sure does a better job at details (not sure if I explain this properly).

Being an old film guy for the longest time I didn't set my K5 past 1600 ISO. I kept on thinking if I set it above 800-1600...well grain or noise would make itself known.

But then our grandson was born early this year and I love to take pictures of him, but I try to avoid the flash, just use available light indoors. My K1 is pretty good at high ISO ...noise wise...and I use my old, reliable FA 50mm F 1.4 around F 2 to F 2.5...works pretty well.

I thought well, maybe I should give my K5 a shot just to see how it does at high ISO. I was pleasantly surprised that it did better at higher ISO's than I thought it would. My K5, which I've had since 2011 has been a very good camera...done everything I've wanted it to do and exceeded expectations. As the radio disc jockeys used to say..it's old but it's gold.

Encountering a fox with a k-3 ready is a dream of mine .You made the most of an unlikely situation . The fox's expression is priceless .
