Default D7000 12800 iso

Just thought I would share a photo of a football pic shot at 12800 iso on a D7000. The lights was terrible at this stadium.
f/2.8
1/640
155mm
12800 iso
Photo cropped.

Straight out of camera.


Level adjustment, sharpened and noise reduction.

I think the results are certainly good enough for news print or web viewing and probably 4x6 printing. Any larger on the print and the image is missing too much detail IMO. Still, depending on the use, that's quite a lot.

Thanks Bynx and JohnG.

I agree on the quality. But I just wanted to see what could be done on a DX camera at 12800 iso.
I need a better flash than a sb-600 so I could get better reach.

Have you thought of using the Better Beamer?

What lens are you using? If you're using a 200mm lens then the lens itself limits you to about 75 feet of coverage. If you're trying to shoot action beyond that, even if you get a more powerful flash, your quality will still be poor.

I'm using a 80-200mm 2.8 Nikon 2 ring lens.

Then your reach is limited by the lens, not the flash. A more powerful flash will help with recycle times to be sure - especially with an external battery pack. But the SB-600 has enough reach for 75 feet.
