I hope you don't mind some family snapshots taken with my K-m.

The only problem I have with those family pictures are that they are too good to be hiding here in the high iso gallery . Yes they are taken in high iso, but they are also superb photographs. What a breath of fresh air, so thanks for sharing them.

Pcarfan, thanks for your kind words. I don't have "eye for photography" and I totally suck at art, so I'm just a happy snapshooter taking lots of photos of my little daughter Other than that I like to take some kind of "documentary photos" of all kind of things (city scenes, old and/or abandoned buildings, bridges, railway vehicles and infrastructure, etc) before they are changed or disappear (due to reconstruction, demolition, etc).

I like to browse and watch all the great photos on this forum

You may want to go to the "Mini-Challenges, Games, and Photo Stories" part of this forum, and they have lot's of mini games involving posting photos. If you have these uploaded, then you can participate in these games, and it gives you the opportunity to showcase what you think are just 'snapshots', and others get to see your city. The "I Spy challenge" could easily use your cityscapes, and would be very interesting.

Last photo I posted was less than inspiring - but it was under very very adverse conditions.

Last night was still under pretty trying conditions. Had K-x set to AutoISO with max at ISO5000 - basically all 230 shots were at ISO5000 average exposure was f/4 @ 1/30... some lower, a few higher.


K-x ISO5000 f/4 @ 1/30
(EXIF re-attached - but PhotoBucket can mysteriously lose the metadata - it is still attached at this time)

I was really pleased with this set of photos - they were all in focus (I use center focus only, comment because my thread: K-x Mis-Focus?) the AWB seemed miraculous - there is noise/grain - but acceptable and virtually none - once I shrink the photo.

This is the first of a set of 30 I posted (link to 1st photo (navigate forwards to view the rest or use the play in the slideshow) - showing how well the K-x worked last night.

The rest of the album actually in perhaps even worse available light conditions all are on the Canon G10 compact

I seem to be always shooting in less than ideal conditions - and the K-x has been a real boon to me - really am enjoying using it......

Shot a couple of bands last night including this one -

this shot is just to set the scene.

The guitarist - second from the left - yes, the one in the shadows remained there all night -
so it was difficult to say the least to try and get a reasonable shot of him -
I have my K-x set on AutoISO max at ISO5000 - needless to say most of my shots were at ISO5000 - straight JPG Brightness/Contrast adjusted, sharpening - but NO noise reduction - (EXIF ought to be still attached - but PhotoBucket can mysteriously drop the metadata - it is still attached at the time of posting)

ISO5000 f/4.5 @ 1/13 AWB center point focus.

Just so you don't think any less of the K-x quality -
since I have been posting shots under difficult conditions -
here's one from the same gig in better lighting, not much, but better -
still ISO5000 (EXIF attached - with the same PhotoBucket caveat)

ISO5000 f/3.5 @ 1/30 AWB, center point focus

Link to first shot of the set - there are 15 shots - navigate forwards from there.

Here's the other band at the same venue -


ISO5000 f/3.5 @ 1/30 AWB, center point focus


Link to first shot in set of 8

With the ISO muscles of that camera, this really is no surprise. Look out C & N faithful.

My daughter

Just a quick snapshot in my home. Taken with the 16-50 on the K20 at iso 6400. She had been running just before and all my shots were coming out blurry, so I bumped the iso and then she paused.

Edit: I just looked at the exif and I was wrong. Was taken with the DA 70 at f2.4, shutter speed of 1/250 sec. Not sure why uploading to Pentax Forums strips away the exif.

Well, I would hardly call that "unusable"! What aperture, shutter speed?

Yes, I could probably print to 5 by 7 size -- much bigger and it wouldn't look good. I edited my initial post, because it was wrong, but this was taken with the DA 70 at f2.4, shutter speed of 1/250 sec (at iso 6400).
