Just thought I create this themed view for the A700 and what the ISO6400 can produce.
This one here is using the agorabasta settings:

agorabasta frequents dpreview forums I believe and his setting was discussed by David Kilpatrick in one of his article :The Alpha 900 as a high ISO body

excerpt for agorabasta setting:
    * Use the open-shadows Zone setting (-1) with a corresponding cut in Brightness (-2) as this also changes the NR behaviour, while the two adjustments cancel out any change to midtone values.**

**This was suggested on dPreview forums by ‘Agorabasta’ and followed up on photoclubalpha forums. Similar results are obtained using combinations of low contrast, basic DRO (which applies a similar lightening gamma curve before raw conversion) and/or exposure compensation. It is also possible to improve ACR raw conversions by using the Linear conversion curve, and enhancing contrast later. Agorabasta’s suggestion has the benefit that it can be applied to one Creative Style, such as Neutral, and remembered for quick access.


Zone matching is also available as low|high ISO settings on the other Alpha bodies, even in KM5D. Not sure about KM7D though - I have to check and try.

Second that fully (even though I'm not as quick)

Nice lighting, shape and texture. Everything "sits" in the right place.

Kudos from a Senior Member now too

Really like the mood of this one, and the fact that it's ISO 6400 is just remarkable.

Thanks MTK. Now all I need is a Groupie and I'll have hit for the cycle.

Thanks, CD. The noise at 6400 used to scare me off, but I'm finding that there are plenty of situations where it is no problem at all, and the extra speed helps greatly.
