An image taken in low light

We have a LED reading light in our living room, taking about 5W or so. Not very bright as you can imagine. Tuna the cat was sitting about 2 meters from it, and that gave me 1/13th of a second with the lens wide open at f/1.8 and ISO 6400, hand-held. No noise reduction, no sharpening:


Tuna the cat in low light, August 2014. Olympus E-PL5 with 45mm/1.8 lens at f/1.8.

Thanks for viewing.

  1. …more than stunning, absolutely breathtaking! And definitely out of range for my E-Pl 1! And with the kit lens, the result would have been not 2 Steps worse, but 5 Steps!

    Are you sure, that you did not add a “0” to much in the ASA you told us???
