Nikon Z6 @ Insane High ISO

Top Photo Camera Settings: [NIKON Z 6, 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6, Mode = Aperture Priority, ISO 51200, 1/100, ƒ/5.6, (35mm = 122)]

I could not believe how dark the venue was at Lips Atlanta, but the Nikon Z6 took on the challenge and didn’t disappoint.

“Lips has been serving up drag from coast to coast for almost 25 years. Lips is Atlanta’s on true LaCage dining experience. Enjoy Vegas style drag shows nightly on the Lips stage. Lips is the best place to celebrate anything and everything! Atlanta’s #1 drag shows and home to the first lady of Atlanta – Mr. Charlie Brown!” [NIKON Z 6, 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6, Mode = Aperture Priority, ISO 45600, 1/200, ƒ/3.5, (35mm = 28)]

We were celebrating Dorie Griggs, my wife, and daughter Chelle birthdays. 60 and 21 are milestones that deserve going big.

Even the stage wasn’t super bright. I was shooting at ISO 20000 to get good results.

[NIKON Z 6, 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6, Mode = Aperture Priority, ISO 51200, 1/80, ƒ/4.5, (35mm = 55)]

I am not expecting ISO 51200 to look like ISO 100, but to just be able to take photos in that low of light without a flash is incredible.

Years ago with film shooting ISO above ISO 800 was only possible with black and white. Shooting color you had to just light venues.

This camera is just incredible in so many ways. This just shows you the high ISO capability.
