Finally got up the courage to shoot for someone else at 3200 ISO at f-6.3 for depth of field and 1/350 sec for sharpness on a moving subject. Yes, I could have dropped both and used what I used to consider a sane ISO. I'm impressed with what my K20D will handle.

This is from the dress rehearsal of our community theater production of The Tempest and will be printed in the local newspaper next week. I did a quick noise touchup with ACR 6.

Good job on a tough subject(foliage can be very challenging)!

First off I'm not selling anything...
Not sure why you would be denying the fact that apparently you are.

Secondly, if you feel that strongly about the nature of "your own questions" then you should ask to have it moved to a more appropriate forum...
Secondly, perhaps you should look at my original post again. I asked no questions, which made your response all the more unusual if you are not selling something.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled High ISO Gallery.

You should know that prior to Denoise, it was Lightroom and Niksoft Define and a host of other tools. Which hardly qualifies someone as selling...
Based on this model, we'd have large numbers of people here selling items such as: Pentax, Nikon, Adobe and what would seem like an endless host of items.

Whatever the case, my commitment to high ISO processing revolves entirely around Pentax camera's and files. Which is why Denoise is currently advertised as the best noise reduction solution at this time. Tomorrow, it could be another and so on and so forth.

As for not asking questions, it was the following comment that prompted a response:
QuoteQuote:
(I downloaded and tried DeNoise, all 4 different modes, and didn't think that any of them improved the noise on this shot at all.)
And since you're experiences was not in line with the software's capacity, it makes sense that someone would offer to help get the most out of it.

However, if you didn't want anyone to comment or offer suggesttions, you might have considered stating that in your initial comment. Otherwise, its very likely that people will instinctively try to help.

I think you are misunderstanding his use of the word "convey" in that thread. As far as I know, John has no connection to Topaz - he was just conveying (eg, relating, repeating, passing along) information about a product he is happy with.

Interesting. I guess as a high ISO test the result isn't bad at all.

But why would you use 6400 ISO in that situation? If you had to use f8 and 1/6000 sec shutter, there was clearly plenty of light about. You could probably have safely used ISO 200 at f5.6 or something instead.

@ JohnBee, Thanks for the kind words, I'll chalk this one up to beginner's luck. @rawr, Thanks for giving me a technical perspective. The truth about this picture is that i had left the iso setting at 6400 from the night before. I decided not to delete them and see what the effect would be. I liked the grainy look in this one.

It's happened to just about all of us a some time. The good news is, when light is good, even high ISO pictures tend to look good. One of my very favorite landscape pictures was accidentally taken at ISO 1600 with my old DS, and just this weekend I accidentally shot this at ISO 1600 with my K200D:

Wow, that's an awesome photo you shot. Nature never fails to amaze me. With scenery like that, i might just forget to take my camera out, haha. Cheers.

While many will not consider ISO1600 high, I do consider it high when it comes out of the K-7. These have all been run through Topaz denoize 5 and where shot with the 24mm Sigma lens.
