Nikon first announced their flagship D4s DSLR back at CES, but the announcement was lacking details. However, when the details finally hit, there was one thing on the spec sheet that really stood out. The ISO range is expandable to an absurd 409,600.
Technical editor, Phil Ryan is hard at work on the full camera test, but he took some time to fire off a few frames at the super-high ISO settings, just so we could give you a chance to see exactly what it’s like to shoot at an ISO of almost half a million.
As you’d imagine, the noise is gnarly, but getting night shots at f/11 with a shutter speed of 1/640th of a second is pretty amazing.
Each photo was taken with the D4s in JPEG mode and posted without editing.
