I’ve been testing the new Sony A6000 particularly as it relates to ISO noise. The light sensitivity of these cameras is very impressive, particularly when you think back to using 35mm film, when 400 ISO could give you grainy results in low light. These Clivia photographs were taken mid-afternoon in the shade of a large tree.

ISO 640 123mm  f5.6  1/200 sec


ISO 1250  170mm  f6.3  1/320 sec


ISO 2500  200mm  f6.3  1/400 sec


As if I’m not already the most easily distracted person on the planet, “Squirrel!”, along comes an app that does this!  It’s called Waterlogue and works on the iPhone and iPad.  HT to Betsy Edwards for sharing.

So I had to have a play with it.  So far, the best results I’ve had have been on photos of flowers. I’ve included some of the original pics for comparison.
