Technically, it was ISO 6400 all the way, and I am very happy with the low noise from what a few years ago would have been a pipe dream. There is one exception, whwre I shot a moving hologram at ISO 51200. That does show some noise, but so we might expect.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
