Details seemed to remain after noise reduction, at the rate of ISO6400, this is simply amazing. There is no actual ISO rating on the exif of the photo when openned with Nikon Capture NX, but it is believed to be ISO6400. So, what do you think?

Update August 2008

The D300 defines a new class of compact professional SLR, incorporating groundbreaking technologies and performance of the D3 into a compact DX format body. The 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor features a self-cleaning dust removal unit and delivers resolution suitable for commercial and stock photography. The EXPEED image processing engine supports a class-leading 6fps at up to 3200 ISO, and delivers superb tonal gradation. Its advanced Scene Recognition System produces superior exposures and is complimented by Nikon’s next-generation 51-point AF system, which offers broad coverage and high sensitivity in low light. Selectable Picture Controls streamline in-camera image processing, saving time in post-production, and the high definition 3-inch LCD screen supports two Live View modes plus a HDMI video output. Responsive, rugged and light, the D300 offers new levels of performance for pros on a budget.

The sample photo is only a reference. I think that Canon 40D’s ISO1600 performance is very good, judging from the above photo alone. But it maybe only accurate when side-by-side comparison is being done with other model like Nikon D300 and Canon 30D.
