These are great shots Scott, and I'm unspeakably envious that you have such clean images at ISO 8000. A short while ago I posted a miserable sample of a terribly noisy image I took with my K20 at ISO 3200.

Hi mole,

Thanks!

A very generous and tempting offer, but traveling is sometimes not a prudent option for me nowadays, but things could improve. . .

I envy your experience, Mtngal.
I'll echo that envy! I've never seen any owl in the wild, but I hope to sometime soon. . .

Hi mtnman,

Thanks!

At these sensitivity levels, the images are obviously not noise free out of the camera. Many would not find shooting at much over 3200 acceptable, even with the K-5, because they won't or don't like to process the images much, if at all. I'm obviously not in that camp, and use whatever means that will give me pleasing results.

I played with your sample and posted the results in your thread. I think that your images are probably workable, so don't give up on them, they're important family history, and it just would take some time and effort to make them better.

Scott
