Some shots from Vienna... E-510 high ISO (6 shots)
 
Hi All

Well, I visited Vienna recently for a business meeting on Monday, but arrived in time for a walk around one of the many beautiful Christmas markets they have dotted around the town at this time of year.

I decided that as I only had my old E-510 with me (E-3 = broke!), that I should go for bust, ramp up the ISO to the max for this camera (ISO1600) and just say what the heck... shoot whatever, and what I get, I get!

OK, there's a lot of noise in these shots - which is only as you'd expect from the E-510 - but to be honest LR3 does a pretty decent job of cleaning them up a little and I ended up being fairly pleased with them. I was in company and so couldn't stop as and when I wanted to, so many of the shots I took are rushed. You can see in some of them that it was pelting down with snow, and the camera and lens (14-54mm) were drenched. The E-510 is not marketed as a weather proof camera and so I did take a risk using it in those conditions! Anyway, they show a significant lack of photographic prowess... but here's a small selection nonetheless.

Looks like you don't really need the E-3 anymore then...........! :D
Bet it wasn't as cold there as on Penarth Pier yesterday.

These were certainly well worth while, John. I especially like the one where the snow or rain is revealed by the beam of light :)

You got some memorable shots, John, which shows that it's the photographer who counts, not the camera. Bet you'd rather have these shots on the E-510 than not have them at all! :D

Sometimes noise does not matter, the second shot makes you feel like your there, a great set of photo's from a good camera.
Like the previous poster says its the person who makes a good photograph.

Nice set John and just goes to show its the eye of the photographer that counts more than the camera.:)

Very nice John, no 1 is my fav, apart from in the skys you can hardly notice the noise and it most certainly wouldnt have struck me unless you pointed it out
