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.

City Hall, Christmas Market



City Hall in the snow




Pelting snow...


Noise...? what noise...



Loved the reds!

Looks like you don't really need the E-3 anymore then...........!
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!

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
