Hi
I am so ...(aargh). We visited our nearby outdoor museum, where they had today
a festival of the huns. This was done the first time ever.
This museum is divided into two parts indoors with exhibitions for stoneage to celts upto medieval stuff.
And outside they have rebuild some of the old tents and houses, like they digged them out on some excavations.
And between all those tents and houses they are holding their festivals.
It is real fun for the kids and for the parents too.
From throwing a spear, shooting a bow, making of wool and ropes,there are lot of differnent things to try, like the people did it in their times.
So really good oppurtinity to get some nice shots. And i dammend guy forgot to check the camera settings before shooting.... So all was shot ith ISO 3200 :_(, just reognized it while eading back to the car.
The whole trip back home i was worried about the lost oppurtunities. but copied the stuff to the PC and was really surprised, the most shots are usable. Sure it would be nice to have pics with lower ISO setting. So i am really glad that i have a cam that is usable even with ISO 3200.
So here are some of the pics.
The first one is my daughter with her friend on an old drilling machine (manpowered, but it should be possible to drill holes in stone with that)

bye alex (opps long post)

This is the front of an old longhouse (where the drilling machine is in).
In this longhouse there is room for about 40 people. (i love that blue of the sky, altough you'll the high ISO Setiing shows here in its worst case. )

There was an mongolic band. Never heard this sound before. Strange but nice and relaxing.

And last not least a celtic, european and asiatic mixed band with sound more familiar to my ears. Really great music, celtic music with asiatic influence.
Also relaxing and good for meditation

Alex, You are right, they came out real nice for being ISO3200. Which camera do you have?

I love celtic music. Never thought of that and asiatic together. It probably would sound very relaxing.

Good job. Patty

p.s. Don't worry about a long post. I've had much longer.:-)

I can understand the feeling you had Alex. I've done similar things too.:angry:
They turned out pretty good for 3200 iso. Nice going.

It's true... the pictures are still really quite nice even at ISO 3200. Which points to a fact that a lot of pixel-peepers don't want to admit: Much too much is made of the presence of noise in digital photos. These images, at 3200 ISO, display no more noise than 800 ISO film would have meant not that many years ago. And maybe not even that much. Good lighting helped, of course. Now, this isn't to say that, in most circumstances, that we don't want to minimize noise. It's just that it's not the end of humanity as we know it, as some would have us believe.

Very nice for 3200 on a K100 - it shows it can be useful if you expose correctly. It sounds also like a wonderful experience, though I think I'd have to hear the music to imagine it. It sounds quiteintriguing.

Thanks to all for your kind words.
@Patty: i am using a K100D

@Biro: You're right, but it is not a good feeling, if you know the pics could have been better (who knows , if they would have been really better?) , if you had taken a look at the settings.

@Patty and Harriet: the music was pretty cool and really nice.

bye alex
