At last a camera with base ISO64
« on: June 27, 2014, 01:28:28 pm »

At last a camera with base ISO64 and extended ISO32 possibility.

The new D810 offer those features.

Hope that many other manufacturers will follow.

Because there are many occasions to use low ISO when shooting at low speed with good light.

And when do we really need ISO400K ?!

Have a Nice day.

Leaf DCB (1992) and Valeu/Aptus 17/22 with native ISO25. No need to use a fake extended ISO.

"Phase One IQ180 - 2011, native ISO35"

Considering that the IQ180  (when it was new) 10x the price of the D800 cameras! Even PhaseOne dealers were saying at the time that it was better off used under studio conditions and for shooting outdoors the IQ160 was a better choice.

We'd still say that if you wanted to use it at middle ISOs.

In this case the OP seems to want the lowest possible ISO. In such a case the IQ180 is a winner :).

ISO 64 on the new Nikon is NOT "fake."  The fake ISO is 32, at less dynamic range, supposedly.

Of course I've some ND filters ;)

But Low ISO with a good "Auto ISO", and the camera would be instantaneously ready to shoot ;) ;)

Sometimes it's very important, especially when hiking with other persons.

Have a Nice Day.

A lower base ISO can be useful esp for controlling shutter speed, so ISO 64 is a welcomed move. Also you can help out flash sync speed with a lower ISO (though HSS does fine in many cases)

I only had a problem with cameras which had a base ISO of 200 which wan't ideal. Still it's something more makers should offer a lower base ISO below 100

Offering a base ISO at 64ISO has another value for Nikon.

Although the D800 has amazingly good high ISO image quality, it is at base ISO that it is offering an image quality far superior to that of its competitors.

Yet, it took actual shooting or measurments to see this value. It was not visible in any specification.

By re-designing a sensor with a higher photon well capacity, and therefore a lower true base ISO, Nikon managed to show in its spec sheet the superior image quality of the D810 at low ISO.

We will have to wait for DxOMark results to see how it translates into real world performance, but the mind share has already been captured. This may be a good example of marketing driven engineering.

Cheers,
Bernard
