Hi Ron,

I am an Indian, living in Israel for research and coming to USA (Univ. Miami) for the same purpose.

Photography is my hobby and I am going to buy P850 or 880 when I land in USA.

Nice to meet you.

Atindra - Nice to "meet" you too. I hope your time in the USA goes well for you. And of course, I'm sure we'll still be seeing you on the forums here!

Here's another pic from last night. Resized to 800x600, no other PP.

I just did some night shooting at my son's football game with a H1 and I think the 850 did a better job. Wondering if I might not return the H1

Night+action shots are going to be difficult with all prosumer cameras.

The P850 does have higher ISO settings which may help with night shots, but I'm not familiar enough with the Sony H1 to comment on how well it does in low light situations.

Hi Rambler358 and John002,

I recently decided to get the P850 because I do a lot of football photography at night and during the day.My problem is I am camera illiterate and none of this stuff makes any sense to me. I was wondering if you could upload some of the football pictures you took and also tell me how you set custom settings and what settings you used. Stadium lighting is very bad at the field I take pictures at and I have heard its best to set it at ISO 800 f 2/8 1/350 with no flash or with the external flash connected. So that is all giberish to me and I was wondering if you could explain it to me and how to set it to thatand tell me if you agreed with that?

Thank you very much!!

Crystal

Hi all!

I'm from Russia (excuse me for bad english) and we don't have yet P850 in sales. So we have not any test.

May be somebody will help me to understand - is P850 a really good ? - I need some uncompressed (not resized) photos, or 100% crops.

From Russia with ...

Hey Rambler358 (and Atindra),

I appreciate your feedback on the 850 as I am considering its purchase.

Rambler358, one thing you may want to consider is a DPS9000 External Battery. It screws onto tripod (but you can still mount tripod) and lasts for HOURs on one charge.

It works with almost all digcams

Go here to read about it:

http://www.digipowersolutions.com/st...roducts_id/405

There used to be a compatibility chart on the batteries but I do not see it there now.

If you Google for it, you can find a dps9000 for about $35-45. Nice thing is that it is compatible with almost all digcams!
