    I wish she wasn't blocking her face with her arm in the first shot. She is rather intent on her game :supergrin:

    that D300 does well at ISO 2000, doesn't it?

    A lot better that my SD1000 at 200. :)

    Speaking about that, what really hit home for me is when they try to cram too many megapixels with a small sensor. My old 5MP Canon A95 takes a much cleaner image, all thing being equal, than my newer 8MP A630.

    Absolutely. I used A610 5MP, and liked the output. It was essentially the same as A95. My GF used the A95, but after it died, she inherited my A610, and I went to the SD1000. It is handy, and the IQ can be quite good for shots where camera knows with certainly that details are indeed that, important details. That means the shot should be close to medium distance, and in perfect focus. Otherwise, all fine detail gets smeared away as noise, even at base ISO. It's just a bad jpeg processing decision on Canon's part as far as I am concerned.

    In spite of the arm, it's my favorite. I've got an 8x10 for her. Sometimes, she gets a little too intense in her game. ;)


    Yes, it does. Its better at 2000, than my D200 was at 800.

    The only way to put more photosites on a sensor that is the same size is to make the photosites smaller. This lowers the signal to noise ratio of the photosites. If you can come up with ways to fix the noise with out turning the image to crap then fine, but larger photosites will always have better noise characteristics as you can us the same techniques on a sensor with larger photosites and since you started with a much better image (from a noise stand point) have a greater usable ISO range.
