Default Low Light High ISO

Got the FZ150 to do silent shooting at intimate events. At f2.8, it really works easily, but zooming in shoots the ISO up (of course as soon as I get it the FZ200 comes out). With RAW and careful post, I got these shots the other afternoon and evening. First three ISO 1600, last one at ISO 3200. Even the ISO 3200 shot printed nicely. Its so nice not to have to worry about the click clack of a DSLR.

Great shots pboerger- and most definitely more than acceptable IQ at elevated iso settings.
And yes,the lack of mirror clacking is a definite boon when shooting in anything other than a rock concert...!

I never use a flash. If a venue really needs a flash beyond the FZ150, I use a DSLR. I know there are intensity settings for flash, but I have never been able to get a natural looking shot with the flash on any camera.

That is really impressive performance at that ISO. Really good shots.
