Default G1X at the Theater

Shot a theater production and tested out a lot of G1X capabilities. Won't bore you with a lot of shots, but two were instructive. First was shot at ISO 12,800 to see what kind of shutter speed I could get with some zoom and could I get usable ISO 12,800. I got 1/640 shutter speed at ISO 12,800. More than I really needed. The second on the scene burst mode. Dropping the EV -1.3 gave me a shutter speed of 1/200 at ISO 1600 for very acceptable results. I used the viewfinder for the scene mode and once you get used to what it does, it works. All shots in JPEG. I was very pleased with the results and amid the audience, not a sound was heard. For Mark2009, thanks for the link. It was very helpful.
