The primate area of the Brookfield Zoo is indoors since the weather is a bit chilly these days. The lighting is low so I had to push the ISO in order to get fairly respectful shutter speeds.

This photo was taken with a Canon 30D @ 3200 ISO. I am impressed with the image quality.

    3200 ? nothing wrong with that. Just for grins you should order one from Mpix, about a 5×7 to see what it looks like for future photos that need to be pushed

  • I did need to make adjustments for noise in the Camera Raw software. I converted this to BW on purpose to also address the noise. I was able to adjust light levels rather dark and increase shading to reduce noise as well. In the end when I look at this shot in full screen mode…you would never guess it is at 3200…no way!!
