There was this fantastic pulsing sculpture lit up and morphing into different colors. I put my camera down and set the timer for 8 seconds. You can barely see in this smaller version but there was a man sitting perfectly still by the base.

A stroll through Gion, Kyoto, Japan.

I absolutely loved walking around the glistening, rain-soaked streets of Gion in the evening. More to come.

Canon S95 100% Full Size Samples Displaying Low Light Capabilities

Posted on 10. Oct, 2010 by .

The following images display the Canon PowerShot S95 low light capabilities at ISO 80, 200, 400, 800, 1600, and just for kicks, 3200. This is a follow-up to my initial review of the camera. In my opinion, ISO 400 is just fine, 800 usable, and 1600 moderately usable if need be. ISO 3200 is pretty much a mess, but would be better than nothing if the situation calls for it. For a compact camera it definitely impresses.

These images link directly to full size, unmodified samples. Feel free to download and inspect them as you wish (click the image, then click again to get to the full size version).

To make things easier, I’ve also posted 100% crops from the samples. Again, these are straight from the camera. However, take note that these were all shot as jpeg, not RAW with +1 on sharpening, +1 contrast, and +1 saturation I believe, using the “Custom” setting.
