FZ200 at low light dance competition...


Last Friday, there was a dancing competition and i was there with two bodies (5D mk II) and lenses 85mm f/1.2, 135mm f/2 and 70-200mm f/2.8 along with panasonic FZ200.. I had no intention to use FZ200 but when I lent my cameras to my assistant, i decided to try..

The results was pretty surprising because 5.5fps with AF worked like a charm. I usually tried the zoom and high iso (iso 800-1600). The AF was very quick, camera was very responsive. I had very low expectations, but it surprised me. At home, I printed one of the photo shot at ISO 1000 without any post process at A4, and it looks very good and detailed even when inspecting from a closer distance (like 10 cm - 4 inches)

DOF was shallower than I expected, so you'll see some examples with couples one in focus while the other one is not.

There are some photos below, please don't pay attention to the composition, as they were shot solely for testing purposes.. Photos are jpeg OOC, not post processed just resized to 1000x750px.

This is the photo I printed..
