I guess now you have cameras that shoot in the dark. How low can you go?
Both with the Sony and when I was shooting Fuji the image quality was quite acceptable at 3200 ISO. Sometimes higher. The lens is usually wide open and with a stabilized lens or body shutter speeds down to 1/4 or 1/8th of a second are pretty reliable.
I actually meant the ISO, I can’t see shooting at 3200 with my camera. And I never go lower than 1/100th sec except by accident. Amazing images!
Thanks, Mike. Image stabilization on lens or body makes an enormous difference. Usually around 4 stops … which would take your 1/100th down to 1/15th or so. Of course, that’s not going to freeze subject movement so you just look for people smoking cigarettes.
