** 5N - more VEGAS NIGHT HIGH ISO shots !
So i busted my rear end today for you guys, because I want to give back some to this community . Many still pixelpeep about high iso this or that. So there you go. I think most shot at 1600 , some maybe 3200. JPGS, kit lens , handheld.
There is a pano at the bottom , too... nothing special but its ok for night low shutter speed...
Were these taken with the 18-55mm or the 16mm?
You've given us the most impressive pics with the 5N... I guess good enough for Sony to make you its 'brand ambassador.' Ahem.
Great pictures and at ISO 3200!!
Even a broken clock is right twice a day!
That's a great Sweep Pano, and a perfect example of my theory (link below).
There is no way you could pan a camera at 1/60 second without a very blurry photo. That is, unless there was some magic going on with the kit zoom.
I'm not sure that shot could have been done at all with the 16mm pancake, because the min shutter speed would then be 1/500 sec.
Interesting theory. Just read you post. I honestly dont know, but I'll sure find out for you sooner or later, especially since I plan on getting wide adapter for the 16mm making it 12mm DX or 18mm FX ( or film). I'm curious to see how would camera deal with that . BUt if you're right and you probably are that's kind of a bummer, since this wide of a lens would be then pretty much useless in anything but the bright daylight conditions.
Love the night shots mate especially the sky line views looks fantastic!
wow such amazingly clean shots from that little wonder...
that problem with the pano is probably due to an uneven sweep ..been there..it takes some practice....also this is why when i do a sweep i always do it 3 times just to make sure.
anyway ..the view from the tower at night with this cam is simply breathtaking....
bring more pictures
Fantastic! Thank you for posting these. Very good eye and tool!
...PHENOMENAL. Love every single one of these photos. I've tried my hand at night photography before, but my photos always come out hazy and soft, tripod or not. These are shining examples of the right way to do it! Bravo.
Looks like they turned out mostly well, thanks for sharing.
What were you in Vegas for?

The are very nice indeed. The interesting thing would be what would emerge from the shadows with a bit of fill light, noise or signal? Just a tad, but a few of those shots look like they'd have some interesting subject matter with a teak or two to the tone curve. Maybe something to do when RAW conversion becomes fully supported as you can only go so far with JPEGs.
However, it is promising. Also worth noting is the downsizing will have helped too.
Anyway, very good indeed and nicely put together.
Thanks. Maybe looking at exif could help you somewhat and you could close to duplicate the settings and give it another shot! I had many struggles too., but ultimately it lead to pretty decent photos.
Shooting on tripod is almost too easy. shoot at iso 100 or 200, I usually shoot anywhere from 8-30s exposures. the longer the better especially with water- it makes it look smooth
All my handheld shots are mot as sharp as could be because I had lens wide opened or close to it. Olso is anything moves ,tripod becomes pretty much useless. With steady scene On tripod I'd do iso 100-200, 8-30s and A 5.6-10 depending what lens you use. MAny people shoot at ridiculously small apertures for no reason. Modern lenses are designed to perform very well between 5.6-8 or 10. I dont think I've never ever needed higher aperture then f11 or f13. But thats all another debate.
Good luck !
