You got to be realistic about noise in general.

If you really want no/low noise, still ISO100-200 and at most 400, even on todays cameras.
Else be prepared to use NR programs and aggressive NR for ISO3200 and above.

Acceptable noise performance depends on individual.
ISO3200 is achievable by most cameras nowadays with pretty good balance of detail retention and noise reduction.


For an idea of how it looks. There is DPR and IR

Hi all,

How high ISO (without Noise) can D7k go?

Up to ISO 800??

Care to share. Thanks
Without noise? No such thing. Without noticeable noise, then I think you can go take a look at DXOMark, they do tests on that. Otherwise, it is up to the individual as to what is considered acceptable noise level. There is no such thing as 0 noise.

there is a lot of factors about the noise level issue,

high ISO has more noise, underexpose images also have more noise,

and what is your output?
if you only need small images, you can afford to have higher noise level.
larger images will be more noticeable.

and you also need to consider what type of images you are shooting,
some images are look good with higher noise level
some images don't

anyway, with the help of software, you can get the noise control to your taste, but you need to have a decent image to begin with.

Images are generally usable at ISO levels up to 3200 for me.

My max is normally 4000, but if I go above 2000, I'll normally use very aggressive NR in lightroom.

Also, if the situation requires it, I'd go up to what the camera offers. Hi1 or Hi2 or whatever. Noisy photo is still better than no photo.

I've tried hi 2 before. Not as bad as my old d5k at 3200
