Shoot at 6400 iso using the k10d and 50 mm



For a more bigger image:

Where you can see that the noise is barely visible.

In both I had +3 stop (ufraw) during the postwork and +75 of sharpen (gimp).

800 iso + 3 stop = 6400 iso

I have not applied any smoothing.

Perhaps should better make more pictures and less pixel peeper.

I use "only" f/2.8 because i was very near the subject so i would like have sufficient DOF.

hmmmm,
i dont get the point of this post?
Are you trying to show the noise control because as far as i can see its ok for iso 6400 but for a normal photo fairly bad

I too am curious what this picture is meant to illustrate. Or what problem you were attempting to solve.

As I said before:
"less pixel peeper and more real pictures".

This is only an invitation to take real photos while in general I see many words but very few shoot.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Well in that regard, it isn't the best of results.
Subject is really soft and lots of detail is lost.
It could have been approached a little differently with a better result.
There really is no need to underexpose by 3 stops.
If lighting is that poor, just get a tripod to assist in the longer exposure.

I think is sufficient good and if a resize the shoot from the raw more bigger I can even print without problem.
I'm happy and this is the only thing who i'm interested.

On the Pentax k10d isn't possible set more then 1600 ISO so in every case i must add stop during the postwork.
I use 800 Iso because on the lcd screen seem not bad.

Tripod?
1) No possible use tripod in these type of events.
2) Not very useful for non static subject where isn't good use time too slow.
Also he took his position only for few seconds (10-15 seconds).

You can only do so much to have a fast shutter speed in bad lighting and fast action.
If you're happy with the results, that's good - each to their own.

Pulling 3EV during RAW processing is extreme. I never pull more then 1, rather consider shot a miss.

I would rather consider it a good shot. Especially considering it was underexposed so much.
Chroma noise is not that bothering, expression on his face is well worth the effort.

His suggestion "less pixel peeper and more real pictures", is a good one. For everybody.
