This weekend I had a chance to give the D4 a try. Took some pictures Friday in really bad dark overcast and I was impressed. Took a few more Saturday and Sunday which were beautiful clear days. Also impressed.
These two were taken early this morning (Sunday). I wanted to see how it handled early light but still fairly dark. For the first one the sun was just starting to rise but way below the tree line so I was still in a lot of darkness. I set the camera to auto ISO with shutter set at minimum 1/500 and a high ISO 6400. It worked like a charm. The second one was taken about 15 minutes before sun rise. Some light present but still dark.
I couldn’t have made these shots with my last set up. The noise would have been horrible. I might add, a slight noise reduction was made on the first one but really didn’t need it. I would have been happy without it.
