I posted 2 pictures with this setting, both zoomed in to see some details of the bird.
They were both taken handheld.
- ISO 400
- 1/2500 sec.
The Humming Bird:
- ISO 3200
- 1/2000 sec.
It is all grainy.
I guess for the humming bird the ISO was a bit high which could explain the grain?
Is there a test in bright light I could do to see if I can get a better result?
Thank you for your advices!
It would help to know two items:
did you develop without applying any noise reduction?
how much did you zoom in/crop these images?
