cars at ISO 400 with ZS3 (lots of images, warning)
Mar 27, 2012

These were taken under a mix of artificial light and required a camera capable of being handheld at fairly low shutter speeds or one with a fast lens high ISO ability. The ZS3 only meets the first criteria, but I feel it performed quite well. The wide aspect ratio and wide lens also helped in the tight confines of the auction space. Most shots were taken between 1/8 - 1/20 second.

I did apply PP to all of these images. This consisted of cropping for composition, and correcting WB in ACR, a bit of cropping too. Lastly I select just the paint of the car and use Nik Define to clean up the noise just in these areas. I feel this is a good compromise, as applying NR to the entire image blurs areas where I would prefer a bit of detail even with some noise present.

I'll post a few more in another post if there is interest.
