Renaming the future of High ISO speeds?
Digital cameras have far surpassed film in terms of sensitivity to light, with ISO equivalent speeds of up to 409600, a number that was once unfathomable in the realm of conventional film photography. Faster processors, as well as advances in software noise reduction techniques allow for this type of processing to be executed the moment the photo is captured, enabling photographers to store their images at a higher level of refinement that would have been prohibitively time consuming to process with earlier generations of digital camera hardware. With digital photography advancing at such breakneck speed, low light processing with superb noise control levels will exceed our current expectations of digital photography in 10 years time, just like how we can never fully grasp an ISO of 409600 10 years ago.
