GR- Continues to Impress
Out for a late night stroll.. this scene, I could barely make out the silhouettes of the Canadian Geese in the foreground with my own eyes- it was very dark. The lights in the background were visible, but not much else. I had no tripod with me, and I wanted to make a handheld shot of this scene at a higher ISO. So I braced myself, made the shot.
This is what I came up with at ISO 10,000 - from Raw in ACR. Remember, the metering of the camera dictated that in order to get a decently exposed image in A mode, I had to ramp up the EV compensation 4 stops... in manual mode, the exposure compensation would have been zero.
No blur, minimal noise, and totally useable. Not an award winning scene but does show what you can do with the GR even without image stabilization or a tripod. The portability of the GR does not end during daylight hours.
