It seems that you were using K10D and maxing it out at iso1600. These two happen to be the best 1600 shots of K10D so far I have seen. Amazing. I always thought it was behind that of DL or K100D. Is it that yours is relatively new model or serial #. Maybe the new firmware has improved the low light capacity.

Hi Daniel, Thanks for the nice comment.

I got my K10 nov 06and have updated to ver 1.20 firmware.The first 1600iso shots from around christmas last year was not that good in my opinion. But I think too that the new frimware has improved on the banding issue andcolor saturation.

Those are great concert photos. I have no idea who was playing but you did a great job behind the camera.

Impressive shots for ISO 1600. My k10d has the latest firmware, and banding is still a problem, even if I've exposed correctly, or even overexposed and reduced exposure in pp'ing shooting RAW. It is hit and miss though...some ok, some awful........cheers....Don

Well, I think that that is the problem, the correction of the exposure in RAW.

I've noticed it too with the concert shots I take with my (now slightly outdated) ist DL.

At iso 800, whenever I expose the picture correctly right away, I get very few to no noise.
However, when I correct the exposure in PP, or add a little fill light in RAW, the noise becomes visible.

My advice would be to try and experiment with + or -1 EV step and see which one works best under which lighting.

I usually use 1/125 at f/2.8 at concerts. When there's more light, 1/180 at f/3.5 or f/4...a fast lens helps...:roll:

@Ayreon: nice concert shots! Especially the 2nd one is nice, with those lightbeams.
It's a fun branch of photography, isn't it?

I really is great fun. This time I took the shots from the crowd and not in the pit. I think I got a better wiev than the other photographers.

-thekman: some of my shots had banding too I guess it`s a lot hit and miss.

Thanks for the comments.
