I am glad to see this thread because I think that most camera users shy away from using high ISO settings, for fear of noise and poor image quality. Shooting in low light level conditions takes getting used to, and some practice to see good results .

Here is a handheld ISO 800 sample done with a Nikon D-50 with a Sigma 30mm F 1.4 lens.

How do you like your Sigma?

Sigma is now manufacturing the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC in Maxxum/Dynax mount, too.

So, I've been thinking about one for my Maxxum 5D, since sometimes I'd like something a little bit brighter compared to my Minolta 28mm f/2 in very low light.

JimC-

As you can see from my post, I just received the lens yesterday, and I must admit that I am very pleased indeed with the brightness, the sharpness and the contrast of the images. The Sigma 30mm has really exceeded my expectations.

Here is another photo with fill flash.

defiryde-

Save your photos to separate folders, then uninstall Kodak Easy Share. That way your photos are safe.

Honestly, the questions you are asking are so basic, I am not sure this is the right forum.

To give you the idiot proof answer: You double click the icon.

I use Neat Image and find it very intuitive.

Photoshop is still available. It is the most popular image editing program in the world, used by hobbyists and pros alike, but it sets you back about $600+. I think you are better off using Photoshop Elements or simple cheaper programs for your purposes.
