Yes, ISO 12800 is possible but really a stretch. Thank Goodness, this is a small web sized photo and thanks also for noise reduction software, which was used. I would say only go to this ISO if there is no other way to get the photo.

Have a great day.

Hey, that doesn't look too bad considering what ISO1600 looked like on my K10D... do you have one before the NR was used?

I think you are right Sarah - you can see the effects of the noise reduction, though I'm on the lousy monitor at work so perhaps I'm seeing something that's not really there (I hate looking at pictures at work!). I'm another that would be interested in the unmodified version, for comparison. The picture cleaned up quite well, better than some of my 6400 K-7 attempts (depends on the shot, of course).

Harriet and Nick-

I will shoot some additional photos today. It looks like rain showers for sure looking out the window. I sincerely think that photo was one of those unique exceptions where everything clicked perfectly, that we see so very infrequently. I used neat image and I was amazed at how well it cleaned up. More later.

I use Noiseware Pro and it's quite amazing how well it cleans up noisy photos...

I have to leave for work in a few minutes, but here is a quickie.

This first photo is straight out of the camera, only cropped and reduced in size. It was taken at ISO 6400

Here is the same ISO 6400 photo after a quick pass through Neat Image. Now I have to run. Have a great day.

Here is how it looked directly out of the Kx.

Can someone explain to me the yellow band from the ear to the forehead in this shot Sarah took at high ISO of her husband?

Kriekira-

I am at work and do not have everything with me. Is this the photo you posted about? It was taken at ISO 1600 with just the Kx's built-in Flash unit only. Hence the image quality is not tops, as you would expect.

On my monitor, I see no "yellow band," that you are referring to in your post. Please help me out, are you seeing something that I don't see?
