#53 – LX-3 Low Light Performance

Got to admit, I’m disappointed by the level of noise in this photo. OK, so I’m used to very low noise on the D700, but this was taken at ISO200 on the LX-3, and the noise levels are poor (and I’ve reduced the noise in post-processing). My old Fuji F31 was much, much better than this, only thing was it didn’t have a wide angle lens. Still, I tend to use the D700 for most low light stuff, but on this occasion it simply wasn’t practical (I had to poke the camera through some railings, and even the LX-3 was only just big enough). In retrospect, I’d have set it to ISO80 and propped the camera up against the railing using my monopod, but hey, that’s hindsight for you.
