I've started shooting much more wildlife at higher ISO (6D&7D) The noise in a properly exposed pic is much less and much finer than that in under exposed shots. I watched the Tom Manglesen workshop on CreativeLive last week and he shoots all the time at 3200-6400 albeit he uses Nikon's latest and greatest. He also uses Exp Comp a LOT.. I think a lot of people are like me and worry to much about noise...just get the exposure right, and 99% of the time you can fix the noise in post.

BTW that is a really good shot you made. Have you tried to get any info on the banding?

A very good shot! I am always reluctant to go above iso 3200 because of noise. Looking at this, it appears as if i should re-visit that.

Absolutely agree with the exposure comments and that it is a good shot.

Thanks Everyone, I set the shutter at 1/160 the F stop at f9 and put the iso on auto,.this was the same day I shot the Moose and Fox. So the camera did the picking of iso10,000 and it seemed to work out just fine. It was the end of the day and I was just exploring the 7D markII

Care to share any workflow tips from post for the 7d2? Picked one up and comparing it to my 1D4. Want to make sure I give it a fair chance to impress, as I have the 1D4 post down.

Great shot, get does look cold.

Noise looks well controlled, did you do anything in the way of NR?

10000! Wow, that is really something. Excellent shot, too. Awhile back I asked about noise, and a lot of discussion revolved around the ETTR system. I have since tried to keep that in mind and been less shy about cranking up the iso. But don't remember 10000 ever entering the discussion.:-D

Sweet shots Jeff. It is remarkable how well the high ISO shots look with the 7DII.
