Hi Riley

I was wondering what kind of shots you'd be able to get at a night time street event so yesterday on the way home I decided to take a small detour into Leicester Square and see what kind of results you can get with available light and the 14-54ZD. Obviously, the lighting is going to be different and the E1's got an advantage over the LC1 by having a larger sensor and thus better high ISO but the LC1 also has a faster lens f2-2.4 so I'm assuming that if you shot at ISO200 the results would be roughly the same. All shots taken at ISO400 , shutter speed between 1/30s to 1/8s handheld, in RAW mode, spot meter and slightly underexposed by -1/3.

f4.0 @1/30s



f4 @ 1/15s


f4.0 @1/8s


f4.0 @1/13s


f4.0 @ 1/13s



f4 @ 1/14s

[email protected] 1/40s


The rest of the nights shots are here:

exposures are about the same harj, but results are way different
lots of noise to contend with, iso400 quite hopeless
push processing also didnt work very well for me
slow shutter means slow subjects, or expect to get movement

1/30th F2.0 iso400

Hi Riley

Happy X-Mas and a Fab New Year mate !!! Hey those pics don;t look too bad at all - I really like shots 4, 5 & 6 and esp the B&W. I see what you mean about the noise in the shadow areas and that last shot indoors really shows it up - thats something that the E1 has suprised me at ISO400 and really low shutter speeds. Its there at ISO400 at 100% but when you do an 8 x12" print its not visible at all.

Hola Donna,

Happy X-Mas to you senorita ! Glad to see Santa got yo a fab new "C" !

Cheers

Harj
