specially at night in the dark you should use a tripod. Then you can make iso80 shots without any problems. any shot with exposure times longer than 1/60th of a second should be done from a tripod.

some examples:

another example:

details: shot from tripod at iso400 in a livingroom, light conditions: only natural light from a window on the right side,

half blinded. background: a matrasse from a bed with black cloth over it, b/w mode used.

Photo was resized and the white mist was added in Photoshop CS2 ,

no further alterations, levels, contrast etc. were kept untouched.

F4 , 0.10 sec exposure , approx 150mm zoom used.

Beatutiful hand picture, proton! There is a vast difference between still life photography, use of a tripod and one with action. Kind of like wearing baseball catchers glove playing basketball. Won't work too well. Neither is using a tripod for speed subject and moving objects as Sam illustrated. They are night and day differerences in use. Hocky sticks won't substitute well for bats either at a baseball game. Each tool is used to what it is inteneded. *S*
