any camera. When is low light considered low light? I took these two pictures thismorning at 6:30 at ISO800withcloset door partly closed. If I went into this closet I would have had to turn on the light to get a good look at the color of a shirt I would need. Is this considered low light? What conditions are considered low light. When I see pictures at night of buildings looking all pretty I guess I was considering those low light pictures.

hi Serafin , its quite difficult to say , Did you use a flash in those shots (it looks like it). im no pro in this field but there seems to be a bit of noise on thre right hand side .

No I didnt use any flash. It was some light coming i from the tv in the bedroom. Sorry about the double post. Dont know why it did that. Nobody has a discussion about this subject? I mean how dark does it have to be that you would expect your camera to work well?

As far as I know there is no standard that would determines what conditions are considered low light. Myself I would say that when the in camera brain determines a flash is needed to get the best shot then you are looking at a low light shot. As to noise, if you are looking at or printing a very small size then low light noise will not be as evident as looking at or printing a very large size. If one does not do heavy crops or print large pictures then noise from "low light" shots is not a big problem.

For me Low Light means when there is not enought light for a good shot. No mather what camera you use (DSLR, Semi-pro or just a compatc one) there is always a "low light" case for them

In my opinion and thats all it is, when you need to raise the ISO to get a reasonable SS, thats low light.........and then I would call the streets at night , things along that line as long exposure photos.

But I am sure others look at that differently.
