The benefit of High ISO

ISO 6400, Nikon D3, Handheld
f 1.4 for 1/125 of a second at ISO 6400

ISO is the measure of your cameras sensitivity to light.  The larger the number the more sensitive it is, thus the better your possibility of getting a sharp image in low light situations.  This image was shot around 8:30PM in a dimly lit coffee shop.  I bumped the exposure compensation to +1 to brighten the scene and shot with my 50mm f1.4 wide open to get as much light as possible.  The result is a crisp image that would have been quite difficult at lower ISO.
