How did you work that out ??? Do you have access to camera designers and they told you what their gain calculations and noise budgets were ???

Starriderrick,

I've been intrigued by this camera. Do you have any indoor sports shots with it? It seems to perform very well for low-light close up stills - far better than any other digicam I've seen. But I haven't seen anyone with sports photos from it yet.

There are some F30 indoor action shots in the Flickr F30 group:

I don't know if there's any post processing on those. But I do know my camera will give a useable shot like that at ISO 800, in that light. Not sure I have any good samples, so I just took a shot of the corner of the room here, only resized, no noise reduction or other post processing. This is with a couple stops less light:

I haven't taken any indoor sports shots, but I have taken indoor and outdoor fast action shots with this camera with pretty favorable results. The camera is limited by its zoom range but it stops the action real well. I like this camera because I can take it places where a DSLR is not practical, yet achieve DSLR like quality at high ISO.

Gozinta,

Can you post some of your indoor action shots at ISO 3200? I'm curious to see how well noise is handled.

It will be a great boon to many folks if the camera can deliver "DSLR like quality at high ISO"
