K x @ 4500

this was taken by a semi pro w/ his KX, very very nice I would say. With his permission, I paste it here.

I was the photographer who originally posted these images and a bit of a review over at the other place.

k-x and low light - thoughts from a semi-pro [Page 1]: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

Cheers to OPTMEKX& for posting the link but I'll just embed the photos here for you as well....

ISO 6400 f2.8 1/60


ISO 4500 f2 1/30



ISO 4500, 1/20 , f2


ISO 6400 f2.4 1/90 (apologies for predicable k-x rainy street shot)



You can view all the gig shots here is you so wish:

Holoman - Pentax k-x High ISO - a set on Flickr

I'm loving the K-X. It is a beauty.... looking forward to really pushing it's capabilities!

edx

BTW these are all from RAW with just the default Lightroom noise reduction. Luminance at 0, colour noise reduction at 25. Turning up the luminance slider would have made a big difference...

This is pretty much what I bought a K-x for, thanks for sharing. Just unboxed mine
Batteries don't work.

Too bad your Eneloops only took 150 shots. I have a new pack of Eneloops ready to go in and an Energizer 2450 batteries too. Hope we find a good battery to give us the 400+ shots.

Varta 2300 works fine and make more than 400 shots but still don't know how many in total
Played to much with video and live view so don't know yet

New Eneloops. Got it working after a while, with some tricks from the forum
Looking forward to going to a couple of jazz clubs later this week.

The new trick that seems to have a high success rate is in the NiMH thread I started - start without a lens attached

Thanks edx for posting here. The shots are incredible, the noise itself adds "depth" to the shots. The street shot is lovely, while some probably prefer a silky smooth sky, I like the way it is, a natural look so to speak.
