High ISO w/ noise reduction

Lit with minmal light, I shot this at ISO 3200, 1/20 of a second, F2.8, 24mm, slight blur, but acceptable. I also used color noise reduction.

stopping motion

We are continuing to work on stopping motion with the lowest ISO possible, this was ISO 400, F10, 1/400 of a second.

I took a few shots of my son in super low light to show my students the positives and negatives of what I consider super high ISO (3200). Even with heavy pixel noise in the darks the pictures are still relatively sharp.

Snowshoeing 2

I brought a simple Kodak C813 (8.1 megapixel "point and shoot ") camera snowshoeing today. I'm not entirely trilled, but I still like the way some scenes were captured. My one obvious complaint is lens quality, and it shows in the detail, but it beats bringing nothing and it's light. They retail for about $44.99 now. It was my wife's, I replaced it with a Canon Powershot that takes much better pictures, so this is mine for walking around with, and not having to worry about.
