Some folks were asking me about the photo I took during Chingay, how the noise level is so low for a ISO 1600 picture. Well, first of all, ISO 1600 is indeed pretty noisy...
here's a zoom of the previous image I posted here
Original image, shot taken at ISO 1600, USM applied
Using Neat Image software, here's the result:
USM was applied after the image has been filtered using Neat Image.
Comments from the floor?
PS: Will be testing out ISO 3200 very soon, probably at during an indoor sports event.
