Pushing K30 to the limit :) (post photos)

The idea is to show photos which push the camera to the limit. For example its matrix or AF...

Some from me:








All shot with Samyang 85 1.4@3.2 1/40 ISO 500-800 each shot is only one shot with RAW conversion.

Nice, you can try to shoot the same photo in ISO1600 than push it in ACR, I'm pretty sure you will get more detail in the photo and less blurred colors.

An improvement?
These were my limits at 1/60 f4 ISO 12800 (I could have tried 1/30 but little time and I did'nt trust my old hands)

Last weekend i was having coffee with friend who once own the k7.
he was impressed with my k30. all of sudden. he remember that there was a "method" that can boost/push the iso capabilities of the K7 and decided to see if it can be replicated into the k30.

settings used are
iso set to 6400
Custom image Natural , in the High/Low Key Adj -2 from the middle
Ev +0.5 (said to compensate the overall "brightness")
high ISO noise reduction i turn it to auto
I also turn on auto for both the highlight and shadow correction.

here is my 2 sample picture, image is straight from camera and no processing done.

iso6400 1/180 f2.8 DA40XS K30


iso6400 1/350 f2.8 DA40XS K30
