    Hi!

    I will get a superzoom camera. The panasonic FZ28. I like the low key photos of woman, and i want to take that kind of photos with the camera. It's possible ? Or it's very difficult to make low key with this camera ? My question it's because of the noise that Superzoom cameras have at high ISO.

    Regards

    Yes, it's possible. Lighting counts for more than anything else.

    you can use a slower ISO 100 - 300 or so. that will actually help you. If you have your lighting set up right. Alot of times you need high ISO in low light situations, but when you can control the light you have room to play...then make final adjustments in PP.

    High ISOs are needed when your subject has low light. For a low key photo, the overall image is low light, but the subject is illuminated. If you light it right you can shoot it at around 100 ISO, and certainly under 400 (which is about where the FZ28 gets noisy - I know, because I have one).

    I am. I just watch my ISO to make sure it doesn't climb too high and so far the camera has done everything I wanted it to.

    i'm not happy at all, at least for the one simple reason - those fckers forgot to place a remote port for remote shutter control.
