I would very much appreciate seeing some best examples of ISO 800 and 1600 low light theater, plays, concerts etc. pictures before I decide to buy the S9000. PP not an issue. Thanks

Thanks. 800 looks very good. 1600 rough.

yes i agree
Iso800 looks practical for small prints and minimal croppping. Iso1600 looks unusable. On another note the noise in fz30 is probbe like fuji iso800 at only iso400 setting.

i will post one wen i get a chance

If you want to see some theatrical high ISO shots you can go to http://www.photo.net/photodb/folder?folder_id=591145

These are straight out of the camera (no post editing) shots at ISO 800. The photos were reduced in size for upload. Should you want to see the originals in full size contact me. I can only say that I developed most of these up to 12 x 8 and they were very good quality.

These are not the best examples, but they can show you what S9000 can or can't do. Shot yesterday in low, high contrast light at ISO800 from about 20 m from the stage. No PP, just downsized to 800x600 from 9MP Fine Jpeg setting:

The same as above, shot at 300mm zoom + x2 digital zoom at ISO800. I think this is as far as you can push this camera. Most of the noise can be removed in PP. The print quality is good if you don't print much larger than 13x18cm.

Hi,


Iso 800 is very usable 20x30 - good 50x70 with noise recution and some PP.
Iso 1600 needs some works or very small print 11*15 - with no PP neither NR

example 1 without PP

finally 1600iso/220mm/50s with NR


So basilly it works quite well .. I am happy with it.

Combine with Fast AF it's really magic for shooting indoor ( Judo competition)
In these cases a Stab( ie FZ30) is not helpfull at all .. all is going fast & you cannot
stabilize a judoka , can you :-)

indeed very versatile camera
