Re: Pushing the EX1 in low light night time street photography

Not bad, but of course, the dark/shadow areas reveal the troubles. Are the originals displaying those same artifacts?

I had a good time using mine in Prague last weekend, after nightfall. However, it left me feeling even more strongly that a camera in this class should not have the large jumps in ISO that it does, such as going from 400-800 and 800-1600. The jumps are simply too large, especially when the S95 and LX5 have smaller increments and allow better balancing of noise vs shutter and sensitivity.
