High ISO Woes? No Problem!

No matter how radical lens vibration reduction technology ultimately evolves into, you can never beat the stability offered by a good tripod. Of course, this statement readily applies to stationary subjects and scenes, come sun or darkness.

And in my experience of shooting with a tripod, the ISO 100 image quality derived from the Nikon D90 soon turned additive. Every of those shots turn out so crisp and well balanced, despite the ridiculously low ambient lights available. And when you really resume your shoot handheld, every shot mysteriously resume that grainy (assuming you let the Nikon D90 take control of ISO management) look like before!

Well, at least that's how I am learning to appreciate my tripod only few weeks ago...
