    Nor am I. Don't forget that high ISO and under-exposure will both increase noise (grain) in images.

    Low ISO is 50-200ish, the above shots were both 400, which will give you some noise depending on the camera body and how dark the scene is, this can be mostly removed post fairly easily usually.
