Since you asked for it...

...I want back, and they managed to borrow an MS Pro card from one of the other exhibitors. I took a few pictures, which were then transferred to a computer, and then on to my MS card. Here are a couple of shots. These were resized, with just the normal, very minimal processing that I do with all digital photos (slight adjustment of shadows and highlights, minimal sharpening). I would not take these photos to be the definitive indication of the H9's ultimate capability, but I think they look pretty good for the conditions (ISO100, shutter speeds 1/8--1/10 sec.) But don't ask me to back again! I'm supposed to be working on a show report blog for Stereophile magazine, which should start to appear some time today at http://www.stereophile.com .

Re: Again the CA....

Many thanks Robert!!!!!!

Overall nice pics, the only worrying thing to me is the visible CA, even in these downsized pics...

Re: Since you asked for it...

Thanks for the pics, Bob! You did this forum a great service as we are all desperate for any samples from the new H- series cameras.

For the low ISO and slow shutter speed (and being indoors apparently without much/any sunlight through windows) they seem okay though there is a little CA there up by the chandeliers.

From all of the samples we've been able to see of the H7 & 9, I think that we're not going to be disappointed at all.

Re: Since you asked for it...

I am sure you will get blamed for not taking higher ISO samples.

Thanks a lot for the efforts.

OK, just one more

This one is ISO400. I'm not sure if the focus was correctly on the face, so I hesitated to post it, but here it is. Just don't make any buying decisions based on these pictures!

I don't think it's CA or PF. Rather the blue is a picture of the light of the screen and fluorescent lights itself. The contrasty edges of the lights in the ceiling look fairly clean.

Thanks for the effort.

Re: OK, just one more

Ouch, ISO400 doesn't look that great at all.

Here's the EXIF info:

1/25s, F3.5, ISO400

Focal Length 6mm
Metering Mode: Pattern
Exposure Program Normal
Exposure Compensation: 0 step

Re: Again the CA....

Looks like the noise pattern's unchanged from the T100... I wonder if the algorithm that selects the iso is the same.

Re: OK, just one more

The guy's face is not properly focused and it's underexposed, so what do you expect?

Robert You have Guts

Robert you have the luck to get hold of an H9 take a few shots under the worst conditions, and then have the guts to post them here for all these "Impatient Children" who can't wait until some controlled reviews come out and then to rip apart your post.

Wow...

1st picture is great. You can zoom in on the picture by 3 fold and still have some picture to look at!

What really captures my attention is with the new lens, you can capture more of the scene. This camera will definately make a difference of how I shoot pictures.

Bravo for going in and taking the pictures. When I first got my H5, taking pictures at Best Buy with the floor model tethered to a pole didn't get me any good results. I remembered the awesome pictures people were taking with the H5 and the H1 and relied on that, rather than the 100 or so pictures I took inside a best buy.

I think we'll be alright. Your pictures gives me something to hang on to!!!! The color balance looks very good, The colors seem so natural and like I typed earlier, the 31mm this camera has definately makes a difference on the look of the pictures.

Again, thanks for going back and getting pictures for us.

Am i wrong in assuming that, that is the pre production model or the model that isnt the final version?

If you see where im going with this...?

More pictures

Sorry, but these were not taken with the H9; in fact, they have nothing to do with the H9. They represent the reason I'm at the show, which is doing a blog show report for Stereophile magazine. The first installment is up now, and those whose interests extend to the world of audio might want to check them out at http://blog.stereophile.com/fsi2007/ . The pictures were mostly taken with the Canon 5D/24-105L IS, and some with the Canon A620.
