ISO3200 and almost no noise? How did you do that? Very nice light Mal, great one.
Apparently the Japanese take being music fans very seriously smile
Yes they do!

I've said it before and I'm quite sure I'll say it again, Mal, but I really like your people shots in B&W!

Come on Mal, it's you they're worshipping really wink
You know if that was 3200 film, you'd have quality grain to add depth to a quality shot. Love those hands!

I'd like to ask the same question as everybody else about the ISO, but also add one of my own ... why did you choose that setting?

Sharp, well contrasted and it shows them enjoying themselves. What more could you ask for?
Mal: Great question El! first your question - the band had been singing a very slow melodic tune in the verse section the lighting crew were very good and were matching the softness of the verse with subtle low light so I had the iso on max with a wide open F stop. As the chorus kicked in the lighting crew blasted loads of light at the audience, so I spun round to grab a few crowd shots with no time to fiddle with settings.

I have noticed for a while now that my camera really does not get noisy when there is plenty of light but it does in low light and especially in low contrast light. I'm not sure why this is, I am looking into it. The way that digital iso works is to add gain i.e. it amplifies the data that every pixel gets by a set amount - I think that, if there is enough light reaching the sensor the camera does not add the same amount of gain and therefore cleaner results.

thanks Ellie. mal
