I haven't moved to digital, yet. I have done a lot of reading, in this forum, for years, however. If it's not debates on the number of stops of dynamic range, or the benefits of megapixels, or the sensor size AND the number of pixels, eventually , it comes down to noise. From my knowledge of film stuff, the idea was always to try and use the lowest ISO you could for the situation, to keep from getting grain. If you were REALLY stuck, you might go to 800 speed film, just to get the shot, but you KNEW that it was going to get grain. I just read a long thread about unacceptable noise at 3200 speed. ISO 3200 ! Am I so far out of touch that having "some" noticeable noise, if you zoom in, at 1600 or 3200 is truly a problem ? At what ISO does noise REALLY become noticeable and you have to run that shot through some magic noise reduction software ? Is this all overblown ? Do I have less noise shooting slides than a good quality DSLR will give me ? You guys keep coming up with complaints that keep me in the film side of the fence.
