I have the Nikon D810 and try to keep the Iso range settings some ware between Iso 64 and 1,000 Iso, if I am shooting a landscape I use a tripod. Other times I will use a monopod or hand hold the camera.
Do any of you photographers have any information on the three low Iso settings on the D810, ie L0.3/ L0.7 & L1.0, I wondered if they might be worth using in high contrast scenes , do any of you use these settings.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

After a little google search I found this page which describes L1.0 as a 32iso !! so I would assume that L0.3 is 64iso and L0.7 = 100iso

As far as I know, these extended low settings don't offer any advantages IQ-wise.

Thank you Tony for the Google link and for taking the trouble to find out more, and also to themak for your reply, the raw images I have taken on these three low ISO settings I cannot see any real advantage in IQ. So I shall just use the standard ISO range.
Many Thanks to both of you.

On the D810 base ISO is 64, at which setting you get the highest resolution and widest dynamic range.
Generally lower settings loose slight highlight detail and give the option of extending shutter speeds without using an ND filter.

Generally lower settings loose slight highlight

Just to clarify - this refers to lower than base ISO. Base ISO is 100 on many cameras and 64 on the D810.
