Can you post some darker iso1250 shots please?

Noise Ninja and chromatic smoothing would be good for that nasty purple fringing. Dude, you shot the Dalai Lama at 1250? at least 640, pushed!

 

(with apologies to the OP) What noise ninja profile are you using? Last I checked they did not have an M8 profile. I know there were some posted in the forum a while back but are there any updated ones that I can use? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Many thanks,

Arif

Well I have decided to get an M8, I am going to save up for a few months rather than whacking it on a credit card...for once!!

 

I have also come to the conclusion that for low light work I will need something else as well.

So I returned my 25mm Panasonic f/1.4 lens today and used the credit to buy a Nikon D300 with a 50mm f/1.8 and the 17-35mm AF-S lens.

 

The Digilux is a great camera at iso400 and below with some stunning results and a great feel to it, but it is heavy compared with an M8 and not really a street camera.

For those that think the M8 is noisy at 1250 I would say the Digilux is noisier at 800iso.

 

 

This is the D300 as a comparison at iso 2500, no noise reduction added, just converted from RAW to Jpeg.

This is a nearly dark room, with just a couple of lamps on at the other end of it.

Here's one from my trip to New York City

This again is a great B&W digital shot.... Personally I think the M8 is better at high ISO B&W than colour shots

 

It has a very good dynamic range no? (or am I wrong about this)

So are you guys using exposure compensation of +1/3, +2/3, or +1 when shooting at 1250 and 2500? Thanks.

Exposing normally, though I have my M8 constantly set at -1/3 ev. Best not to rely on auto though.

I use -1 compensation when using 640 in low light,

 

no compensation usually with 1250

 

+1 compensation (max) when using 2500

 

but this may vary a little depending of the importance of shadows....

 

best
