    It is hit or miss depending on the light hitting the face. In some of my shots the "grain" is too intrusive.

    I like it. Can't wait to try that as I love shooting available low light. The DLux3 only goes to 800 and can look ugly sometimes even at that.

    Re: More GRD2 fun

    Fun stuff Terry ...really like the one with the boy on the bench... the high iso shots look great ... true about the light ...can really make a difference if it is not quite right . Have you ever experimented with the flash with high iso ? The flash on the Grd2 is great with the flash compensation you can back off on the flash just enough .... I have been using it more often in shots that are at high iso and are destined for Black and white .... looks quite natural and the light is not as hit and miss .... I really like the effect .

    Hi Terry,

    Lovely light as you say. I was in NYC a few weeks ago and you are making we want to go back already!

    Nice 1600 shots. I too have found this ISO a bit hit and miss but you cannot argue with the form factor of the camera.

    This series is really good. I particularly like the man on the benches, and the city sky line is beautiful.

    I am going to play some more with flash this weekend. When is San Juan we mounted the small Leica SF24D flash on the camera and were playing with it that way. I tend not to use flash too much when out with friends. I can get away with taking pictures because with no flash it isn't quite so annoying to them.

    Thanks all. These shots are fun to take. I won't lie, I still like doing the low light shots like this with M8 and 50 lux but the amount of cooperative time I get from friends is lower than when I am clicking away with the GRD2.
