    ISO Test for the D5100

    I have been wondering how the D5100 would handle High ISO and just how far you can go up in ISO before it really starts showing up in the photo.

    Here is my test.
    • Shot in Program
    • All noise reduction turned off
    • Active D turned off
    • Shot on Tripod with remote
    • No sharpening or post production work at all
    • I loaded these in Nikon Image space so that I could do them full size so you have the option of seeing the entire photo as the camera produced.
    • All Shot in JPEG Fine
    • The file name is the ISO and the "A" shots are a 100% crop
    • Shot with the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G

    ISO D5100 - Don | NIKON IMAGE SPACE - Free Photo Sharing and Storage service

    Be sure to wait till the photo loads completely. You will see focus snap in.

    Was shot with the 40mm macro. By far my best lens.

    I added it to the original list.

    I did the same thing with my D3100 and I found it helped me when shooting. You can read reports all day long and listen to what they say but until you do it yourself you can't really know it. This was real world with no special setup. I gave it no help at all.

    When I started looking at all of it I probably would feel pretty confident in shooting at 800 if I had to. In a pinch even up to Hi 2 if I did not need to print it.

    The close up at ISO100 is one floor higher up

    I was doing this test myself today.
    If you need a fast shutter, it's well worth going to higher ISO when needed instead of risking blurry shots.
    Grain is always better than blur on the subject you're focussing on.
    My photos suck, I must need a better camera.

    You are right. did not even notice that. Have replaced it now. Thanks for the catch.

    I'd be happy with the 800 at a push 1600 for small digital. Thanks for the comparisons i was planning on that this weekend. You saved me a job. Now i can take some real photo's
