HIGH ISO Jpegs

I recently acquired a D700 with just over 1000 actuations.

I love taking pictures on holiday in the hotel where we go which has its own theatre and thought the D700 low light performance would be better than my D300, D70 or D40.

I used the 80-200 2.8 (old) and a 70-300 VR.

Would be glad to hear whether people think it has performed ok and/or what can I do to improve please?

Best wishes

Ray

Nice set of shots - at 3200, but what do you feel is lacking ? What are you looking at that makes you doubt the results you are getting ?

Hi

Not sure really...I wonder if I am looking at staged shots, with lights set up etc and still images against mine which were all taken, hand held with the artists never still..

I wondered if they should have been sharper?

Overall, given the lighting, conditions, speed of artists and that it was my first real try with this set-up I suppose I should be happy....just wondered if I should have upped the shutter a little?

Still happy though...just wondered what people who shoot a lot more than me think and whether with more experience they could have been better.

Best wishes

Ray

Re: HIGH ISO Jpegs

Well you were certainly working on the edge. Shutter could have been faster for the action and the lens, your timing is good though. You are just up against the stops. I would certainly see what I can get by varying the ISO higher and shorter shutter speeds. I've found that the contrasty lighting you have here will help keep the noise down, but you may well experience softer results and more noise. It's worth experimenting (try bracketing in bursts - don't forget to turn it off afterwards ).

Looks good to me too. If anything I think the focus is on the cap peak rather than the eyes but hey, I'd be pleased to get that shot

Re: HIGH ISO Jpegs

Many thanks for the feedback...

I guess it is a case of being satisfied with what is possible under certain lighting conditions....you will never get a studio type shot from something as impromptu as this.

I guess I will have to learn and practice more but am very grateful for the kind feedback...much appreciated.

With kind regards to all

Ray

Well they certainly look good to me too. The camera seems to have good noise control at that ISO. Nice detail in the performers faces/costumes.
