I'm still pretty amazed by the K5's ability to take good photos at isos I wouldn't have dreamed about before I owned one. This is a shot at iso 6400 pushed a stop and a half in lightroom afterward.

(shot with the DA 70 at f2.4).

high ISO owl and hawk

When I go out a little before sunset to look for owls, I invariably need to use high ISO. Here is a Barred Owl I found up in the canopy.

K5+DA*300 TAv, f/5.6, 1/320, ISO 6400:


It was even darker when I shot this Cooper's Hawk. It still needed some pushing in PP, so the effective ISO was even higher.

K5+DA*300 TAv, f/4, 1/200, ISO 6400:


These images do not convey how very dark it was where these birds were perched. I did some NR while converting from raw with Silkypix DSP and then did more NR with DeNoise5. I always do NR before doing any levels or brightness adjustments with the image.

Good memories from Bangkok.
K200D at ISO 1600 , DA 18-250. Shot in JPG. Minor sharpening and noise reduction (noise ninja limited) in Aftershot pro.

First one at 21mm f5.6 1/80.


Second one at 200mm, f6.2, 1/3s

The lens took its time focusing, it was so dark. It may have still been hunting when the boy realized he was being shot from far away, and with that smile I just had to pull the trigger. Err, I mean press of course ! I think without the SR, there would have been no shot at all.

I really like this shot at ISO 10,000. The new cameras really help catch photos that were not possible a few years ago.

I shoot often in what I consider ludicrously low light conditions -
in parts the light level is so low it is literally below both the metering and AF limits of the camera.

K-x with only the two most humble kit zooms -

There will be noise/crud in the shadows as these are extreme low light levels
as there is literally NO direct light on the scenes -

ISO5000, f/3.5, 1/5sec; -1/3 comp; 18mm

Two weeks later -

ISO5000, f/3.5, 1/6sec, -0.7 comp; 18mm


ISO5000, f/4, 1/8sec; 31mm


ISO5000, f/3.5, 1/4sec, -0.3 comp; 18mm

all images have EXIF re-attached
