ISO 1600, F4.0, 1/10th, 17-55 IS hand held...

Last night was a trial by ISO 1600, which I was never too confident about going to. I committed to 1600 and was interested to see how stuff turned out, and to try to conquer my fear of 1600 on the XSi... :)

Nice, nothing wrong with ISO 1600 at all, dont know why some people complain, all it takes is minor cleanup in pp and its fine.

Nice but ISO800 would have been adequate

At at that aperture. His SS is already 1/10, and he's doing handheld, so ISO 800 would yield an even slower SS. Unless he want to stop down to f/2.8, but I really don't see the need as there is very little discernible noise.

I like all the skydiving pics you've posted. Really like the first one.

Exactly. The point was that I was out all night in low-lit clubs, and I knew it was going to be tricky sticking to 800. I normally don't like going to 1600, so I made a decision to go with 1600 and see what I could make with it, as an exercise and learning experience.

(Of course, in situations that were well lit I didn't need to be at 1600, fairly obviously).

In this case, we'd come out of a club and packed up, but had a few minutes to hang around, so I got out the camera again. I know I can handle 1/10th hand held, any slower than that and I probably wouldn't have got the shot. Plus the motion blur on the pink lady (which I really like) would have been too much making her get lost almost completely - and it was her that was key to this shot for me...

And I didn't want to go to 2.8 here because I would have had too shallow a DOF and the image would have softened a bit.

So I'm confident in my reasons why I was at 1600, and am pleased with the pic I wouldn't have got otherwise, and how it cleaned up in post. And I'm much happier with a better idea of what ISO 1600 gives me in what situations, meaning I can hopefully make better educated choices in the future...

Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

I love the XSI, I almost only use it just for skydiving pics. My neck is grateful for its relative light weight ;)

Great shots...I'd like to see the helmet mount you use...
