Pentax High ISO

8 years 2 months ago - 8 years 2 months ago #225133 by eccs19
Always been a Pentax shooter, but recently upgraded to a K5 after my K7 had an accident. I must say, I'm VERY impressed with the K5 and high ISO. I've never really done much low light shooting, but last weekend I had a chance, so it was a good excuse to try out the K5

ISO 9000 - Is there noise? Yes, but a lot less than I expected. I don't think I would have got this clean at 1600 with my K7. Just a note, this was shot RAW, into LR, then exported. No PP done.

I'm impressed! I have the Pentax K10D, and the noise at iso 800 is horrid! Pentax must be improving!!! :thumbsup:

What you are is so loud, I can't hear a word you say!

:agree: I am impressed. Maybe the "accident" was a happy (through expensive) one.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

It is impressive, I had the K200 before I upgraded to the K5 and the difference was phenomenal
