Wow, that ISO1600 doesn't seem very far off my first DSLR (Canon 20D), maybe one stop behind.

Very impressive. The S90 (which I presume is identical) is looking quite interesting to me now.

Again very well done. ISO 800 is about as far as you can go when using .jpeg. In your photos your RAW processing is beautiful and skillful.

Have a great day.

Ajuett,

Those are fantastic shots! Your kids are adorable too.

Thank you for sharing them and the shooting info (that always helps me out since I'm new to paying attention to the readings).

Thanks Sarah, I just use Digital Photo Pro that came with the G11. First thing I do with almost all images is NR: Luminance: 0, Chrominance 20. The AWB is pretty accurate except indoors (tungsten/florescent) lighting. I set to one of those and sometimes use Tune to fine adjust the WB. I generally always sharpen under the RAW tab only, 2 to 3 points. Finally adjust contrast and saturation as needed 1 or 2 points, again under the RAW tab.

Thanks much for the comments! Give the Mum credit for their looks!

As for settings, so far I'm just using P mode and adjusting ISO as needed. When the weather gets better and I'm outside I'll more than likely use Av mode and the EV/ISO settings as needed.

Another 1600 ISO from the G11. This is an amazing camera! This is about 34mm at f/2.8 and 1/10. By those numbers you can tell there is not a whole lot of light in the room, 1 40w lamp about 3-4 feet away.

PP includes:
NR: Luminance 0, Chrominance 20
WB: custom tuned
Contrast: 1
Saturation: 1
Sharpness: 5 (from 3)

ajuett-

Thanks again for posting another of your excellent photos. This is very impressive at ISO 3200. For those who are not taking advantage of RAW, your photos, all taken in RAW should get them motivated toward working more with RAW.

Have a great day.
