Out and about in Coventry City Centre yesterday, seeing what my little PANASONIC LX5 could do in difficult circumstances.....ie.....Coventry Retail Market, where the lighting is poor or harsh with little in between.

As an experiment and fir the first time I set the camera to P mode.....all my usable frames were OK but rather noisy, I had to use the Topaz Noise Filter to bring them t a workable condition.

I don't think I'll bother using P mode again, unless someone can advise where I went wrong......ISO was 200.

Comments and advice very welcome.

Hi I'm not Realy surprised at noise in poor lighting conditions even at 200 iso the fact that it's on P mode should not make any difference. I use a Canon G9 and would have exactly the same problems
But I know this and always shoot in RAW and use my software to remove the noise it can do a much better job than the camera.
Regards John.
