Sample Images - ISO settings



Like the Nikon D90, the D5000 supports a standard ISO range of 200 to 3200 with high and low expansion options. Even though these expansion settings and a wide ISO range are available, it's still best to use a low ISO setting whenever possible to avoid noise. Here’s a closer look at each of the ISO settings.

Images were practically noise-free up to 500, then artifacts began to appear, but images were still very usable. Even images at 1600 weren’t too bad, though there was definite noise.
