I visited a terrarium today and, of course, hadmy FZ30 with me. It was quite dark and many targets were behind glass which made using a flash impossible. So I thought: better something than nothing!ISO400 andexposure compensation to -2 which means exposure settings equivalent to ISO1600.I know, imagesget dark & noisybut I ran them through Neat Image (just default settings) andadjusted brightness and contrast. Are they usable? Well, of course,colors are not as deep as with ISO80 and the noise is still visible (I could probably do better by fine tuning the Neat Image settings)but they'rebetter than I thought and I could at leastbring some images home...

Hey those are not bad at all, although I would never have had the guts to set my FZ10 to ISO 400 - 200 yep and then under expose by -2 ev. Those shots look very good to me.

Cheers

I agree with HarjTT. Very nice, not too noisy for me. I am glad you did the "brave" thing and used the higher ISO. A treat for those of us not living near a terrarium. Donna

Wow, that's great.
Like HarjTT said, neve had the guts to try that.
With all the talk about the terrible noise, I've never gone over ISO 200, and use ISO 200 with terrible fear.
Man, what those reviews can do to you. !!

And since I don't know anything about this post production stuff, to me, the pictures are really great however you did them.

I have never knowingly used above 100 ISO as I detest noise and it ruinbs my pics with long awful lines down each image

But they feel and look right, it looks like I am looking at a TV show, a picture direct from TV. Not bad at all and I will have to try that
