Do you think that nikon should start adding a piece of firmware that would allow you to simulate film ISO grain? I find that with the clarity of these new (Which are fantastic) ISO's you don't get the same response as film which is why my D80 is still handy.
ISO 1600 Obselete?(7 posts) (7 voices)
That's why film and digital aren't really comparable, and the more time that passes the less comparable they will be.
And one of the reasons I shoot both.
I absolutely don't think nikon should add any such option, any more than I think they should add sepia mode or googly eye mode with funny lips; that is to say, not at all.
I already have that option :) alien skin exposure 3. Great film stimulator
You can always just do it in post. I also don't think Nikon needs to put sepia or black and white mode etc in their cameras. (I don't know if they still do this, I own a D40). It's so simple to do in post.
...or you could jack up your ISO to 6400?
Some P&S from other companies have Film type modes which Nikon could put in the more consumer bodies. For snapshots this could be useful - for good "Art" prints this would be done in post. I do keep a B&W preset on my D300 but that is just for snapshots.
If they did, fine. Either way it would not be a selling point for me. I still would use Nik to emulate any film looks I want in post.
The D80 sensor definably had a sensor that had noise to it. I sold mine and never looked back. It did do B&W well though.
Yes with NSX Type R on this one. Why not jack up the iso then? Kyoshinikon, I'm with you on this I love that grain look as well. Thats good to know Smarterchild about Alien exposure.
