    Hi Guys
    So all of us have been discussing low light capability of various MFT cameras and compare them with other formats . Now even MFT cameras differ in low light performance and newer models like Panny GX1 and Olympus OMD has raised the bar . Many of new members and even old members are often interested in low light capability before upgrading or switching to MFT . I thought why not to have a thread with low light shots from ISO 1000-6400 with any MFT camera for every one to see . So please bring it on ..
    Cheers

    This is one of the areas I'm most interested in as I seem to find myself doing a lot of low light photography either indoors or fireside while camping. Unfortunately I don't have much to showcase here yet as I stuck to ISO 800 and below mostly on my GF2, but I'll be following the thread with interest.

    This is not for pixelpeepers, there is a substantial amount of noise here, and image size is resized to compensate for noise. Would love to have EM5, but I don't.

    I will contribute one - I continue to be impressed with what this camera is capable of. Impossible with my old film cameras.

    I can use ISO3200 with confidence - the noise manageable even with slight underexpose.
    All of these had noise reduction applied in ACR.


    ISO 2500 (FD 50/3.5)

    p86324138-4.



    ISO 1250 (45/1.8)

    p251626808-5.



    ISO 3200 (45/1.8)

    p732530872-4.

    just got my OMD a couple of days ago... and yet to find any real low light situations in sunny California.... but this shot at 6400 ISO in a dull kitchen kinda hints at some great possibilities

    P7290043.

    I will dig through my flickr and see what other low light high ISO I have

    Bored on the rally stage

    Not much to do while waiting for the cars except look about and see what else within range is worth photographing.
