Was sitting around the other day watching some TV and looking at pictures on Flickr (Yes i have become a complete addict on Flickr, mainly because there are so many beautiful images posted) and i decided to grab my camera and play around a bit. Although it was rather a dull and dark day i decided to take this opportunity to see what sort of images i could pull out of the D3200 in extreme low light conditions. Unfortunately i was forced to take it all the way up to 6400 ISO before the flash icon would stop flickering at me but this also gave me a great opportunity to see what sort of images i would capture.
The image itself surprisingly turned out not that bad at all, which i was surprised at due to me reading a lot online that the D3200 was unable to handle any ISO above 800 as it introduced way to much noise, when i took it into Lightroom and began to play around with the contrast, whites and blacks and the image began to just pop out. I’m not saying that it’s a crystal clear image because once you move into a ratio of 1:3 then you will of course see the noise being introduced, but i feel just sitting looking at it from a normal fill ratio that you could almost not tell that the image was taken at such a high ISO value.
I must say that i’m pretty impressed that such a basic beginners camera can pull out such a quality image especially when i was only using the kit lens (only lens i have currently)
As always your opinions and critiques are always appreciated, so don’t hold back and tell me what you think?Advertisements
