"Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." said the White Queen to Alice....while this quote was used this morning by Gloria Borger relating to @POTUS I thought it appropriate for what I would have considered impossible not all that long ago related to high ISO photography. Getting a quite usable image at ISO 16,000 today whereas 1600 was considered too high for most camera systems in the not too distant past is astounding. I think we often take for granted the innovations and cast aspersions on the companies that make what we use and only look for the technical flaws....we've come a long long way in a very short time.
Now, if can only find five more impossible things, my day will be complete!

12,800 looks very good to me. 16,000 is still pushing it, but compared to times past is amazing ~ Ron

Agreed that photography today is amazing. Like 4000 raw photos on a memory card the size of a postage stamp.

Nice shots of the lion.

Eric, this looks way cleaner than my 1D4's 3200 ISO. Beautiful.

thanks for sharing the ISO info, question for you is why did you need this high ISO? The others on the forum may already know why, so I do feel a little stupid about asking, but I would never learn if I did not ask, right?

I use the ISO I need in order to have a shutter speed (coupled with a wide open f stop) that can allow for a decent image devoid of movement artifact....and when it is after sunset and darkness is setting in the only way to get an image that isn't either blurred by movement or totally underexposed is to up the ISO (and if you have a tripod that is helpful....I did not and that raises the the shutter speed I needed a bit whilst hand holding the camera and relatively large and heavy lens.)

Thanks Ron...I love that I don't have to use flash...there is of course the trade off that instead of just observing I'm still looking through the viewfinder....I have to remind myself that seeing the world that way is not always best.

Thanks Tam....to me it is one of the best reasons to upgrade...especially if your photography typically takes place in lowish light or requires fast shutter speeds.

Tack sharp, well exposed and tastefully processed resulting in a colour-subdued yet powerful image.....exactly the way I like them. It's pretty amazing the IQ we can get today at those stratospheric ISO values.

The chroma noise in the first is quite evident yet you still got a great photo Eric. This one might benefit from a B&W conversion. The second is much cleaner and also an excelent image

Thanks Peter....taking advantage of the available technology both in hardware and software...I don't need to prove I can do just as good a job with older tech...frankly, I can not.

Thanks Morris...good idea about the b&w conversion.

Excellent high iso set Eric. I've yet to get anything good above 6400 iso.

There's tech specs and there's moments of opportunity. It's awesome that the two are coming together to help us get closer and closer to 'perfection'. However, being present in the moment and observing 'the event' is a gift no matter how close or far good or bad the ability to capture it is.

"Who knew it could be that complicated?" Or simple? I know you do Eric; that's one of the things I consistently appreciate about your posts. This one is no exception...

Thanks for posting.

Just say "NO" to B&W!!!!!!!
What's wrong with flash BTW.
Impossibility #2; 32 FPS at 40 MP/image. That's really two!
I was just looking at some shots I took in 2011 in low light. Most of them were ruined because I didn't push the ISO over 1600 and I got "blur". Makes me want to go back for a re-do.

You have the skills to take advantage of the technology! Very nicely done Eric.
