very challenging lighting conditions at my daughter’s ballet show last night. iso 800 and 1600 with a lot of noise, quickly and continuously changing lights, a lot of fast subject motion and slow shutter speeds and lots of burnt highlights. But, as displayed above, not all is lost and even in these conditions the g10 can indeed produce image that i think are visually interesting and draw the viewer in.
afterthought: i was exposing with center weighted average and -2/3 exposure compensation, half-clicking on highlighted areas, recomposing then releasing shutter … still found it difficult for g10 to cope with highlights.
