3200 ISO at hand with the Nikon D7000
Relatively placatasi the ‘battle of the pixels’ in pursuit of ever higher resolutions, the new frontier of digital cameras is the quest for higher performance in low light conditions, the ‘war of the ISO’ so to speak .
Nikon still does not tread in the hand on the sensor resolution, however, street beats by Pentax and Olympus, bringing the new 16-megapixel SLR D7000 against the top 18 of the APS-C competitor Canon EOS 7D, increasing the resolution of only 4 MP its range of digital SLR (D3x excluded of course).
But where Nikon continues to pursue excellence in their performance is high and very high sensitivity and the first results available for the new CMOS sensors 14 and 16 megapixel (up to their debut Nikon D3100 and D7000 respectively) seem to prove it.
We were among the earliest to show pictures ‘stolen’ with Nikon D3100 to 3200 ISO, we now have the opportunity to examine a couple of shots of the filmmaker Chase Jarvis, a tester that Nikon is quite fond of him, shot at ISO 3200 and 100 ISO with a copy of pre-production Nikon D7000 digital camera, and the results speak for themselves and I invite you to look at them now …
Nikon D7000 ISO 100
Frame taken with Nikon D7000 and optical 18/105mm f3.5-5.6G VR, exposure f5.3 – 1 / 250 “ISO 100, Daylight white balance. The entire original frame has been reduced and compressed lips of the cutout is 100% instead of the original with a slight additional jpeg compression. The result is impressive, the details of the skin look very natural as well as the performance of special, almost ‘three-dimensional.
Nikon D7000 to 3200 ISO
Frame taken with Nikon D7000 and optical 18/105mm f3.5-5.6G VR, exposure f4 – 1 / 40 “ISO 3200 sensitivity, white balance tungsten. The entire original frame has been reduced and compressed for easier viewing of the entire image, the cuttings of the details are 100% original with a slight additional jpeg compression. Even here the result obtained by technicians Nikon is highly important, very low color noise with a very good retention of the details. Recall that these are tests with a sample of pre-production camera in JPEG format and with no need of retouching. Further improvements using the RAW format and with the appropriate settings in-camera noise reduction.
