Perfect Pentax Q high ISO (ISO 6400) low light example
Sep 11, 2011

Found this today at Flickr. I must say it's amazing that such a tiny sensor is pulling this off. This is a real world high ISO shot. It's size reduced to 3 megapixels and it' still a JPEG, works for me with all the grain. This is the kind of stuff I was looking for to justify an LX5-> Q upgrade.


Note the exif: F1.9 and 1/10th of a second at ISO 6400.

I realize usually bright areas in a scene in all sensors tend to look better but consider the kind of exposure this still is. Say F2.8 1/10th of a second at ISO 6400 would take care of any highlights here, not that I find any issues as is anyway.
