    Yes turn on the light next time you take picture of your phone :lmao:

    No it is quite surprising that you can get so many details from an almost fully black picture, but of course you get the noise you desearve by making it bright with Photoshop

    Actually the D70 was set to manual accidentally and I was just testing the AF of the lens. So the shot was not taken with exposure as a priority.

    And yes, lots of noise showed up.

    Thanks......

    What lens?

    And yeah it really is amazing that the sensor still picks that up.

    Nikkor 28-105: 3.5- 4.5D

    That's what caught my attention. It's been discussed that it is better to overexpose, definitely not to this extreme, than to underexpose.....blow-outs. Details are still embedded and usable during post processing, i.e. useful for HDR processing.

    Thanks....

    I've got "neat image", but did not think of using it since it's not the full version.
