anyone know at what "film speed" the digital cameras (i'm using a D100) start to get noisy? I'm just wondering.

Noise becomes more apparent in the shadow areas and when the light levels become very low. With the D100 I start to notice it in low light at ISO-400 which is consistent with DPReviews findings..

Different cameras will have different noise characteristics, but remember that noise isn't necessarily a bad thing.. It's just grain...

Every camera is different. I use a Fuji S2 and I'm happy with the "noise" level at 1600. I have a Leica Digilux and I'm less happy with it at 400. My D100 friends don't like going over 400 and would prefer to stay at 100.

Another factor in noise is the lighting. If you have straight, clear daylight it's much less noticeable. If you have lots of contrasty, dark light (like shooting at night under available light) more noise shows up.

I shoot d-100 also. I agree with the general consenses of 400. Especially!! If like was said there is very contrasting light. although...the d-100 only goes to 200 speed.
