The rain did not let up all that much tonight. However, at least it was not that cold. It was a bit of a challenge getting photos, since i was holding an umbrella in my left hand. But, i was able to manage it with the X10.
In my last post, i set out some baseline numbers for my settings on the X10. Those numbers worked worked just fine for me. Though, i realized fast that i had to be around 4-5 feet away from the subject for the flash to be really effective.
With the AF illuminator doing it’s job, i had no issues with locking focus. For most of the photos, i had my lens at 35mm, which gave me the best FOV for what i was doing. It allowed my to get close enough for the flash to be effective.
All in all, i am very pleased how the X10 performed in such low light conditions. Compared to my Nikon D80 (which I sold to buy the X10), the X10 renders colors far better in my opinion. As a matter of fact, I would say the X10 is a better camera.
