This “Night Photography: Finding your way in the dark” video documents a Full Moon Night Photography Workshop in the Big Bend region of West Texas led by photographers Scott Martin and Lance Keimig.

This photography course just seems like fun: to be with like-minded enthusiasts, working together at interesting locations, doing light painting, and simply being out at a time of day [night] one would usually not venture out alone.

Fujifilm X100’s High ISO Low Noise Secret

Fri April 15, 2011

Fujifilm FinePix X100

Fujifilm FinePix X100

The Fujifilm FinePix X100 has been delighting photo enthusiasts with its high ISO low noise capability, with low noise up to ISO 6400. However, according to tests performed by DxOMark, the FinePix X100’s highest ISO is ISO 1000, with image quality from ISO 1600, 3200 and 6400 all giving the same results as ISO 1000.

According to Focus Numérique, this “strange” behavior can be explained by how camera manufacturers apply one of the following two strategies to obtain high ISO images: up the sensitivity up to a certain ISO or apply firmware processing. The X100 apparently innovates by applying both strategies: up the sensor sensitivity to a maximum of ISO 1000, then process images for higher ISOs.
