Digital noise can ruin an image, and the camera industry has spent countless dollars and hours trying to figure out how to deal with it. While each company handles it differently (some better than others), at higher ISO’s it’s always going to be an issue. There are also many different noise reduction plugins/software/actions that can help bring the noise down to manageable levels so you can really push the limits of your camera’s ISO capabilities. With noise in mind (and excluding emergency situations), what’s the maximum ISO you are comfortable shooting with? Do you have any tips on handling noise?
