The Pentax K-30 is really starting to impress me. I was walking back up from the beach having just completed a sunset shoot, you can see that here, and decided to stop off and photograph these buildings.
I’m still experimenting with the K-30 and by now the available light was getting pretty low. Normally for something like this I would get the tripod out but I was tired and just wanted to get home. The Pentax K-30 has a lot of preset shooting modes you can use, including one called night scene, which came out better than I thought it would, especially when you see the settings the camera used,
- ISO 6400
- 1/25 second
Yes, it’s a bit noisy, that’s probably due to the high ISO speed, but nothing I can’t clean up using Topaz De-Noise. More importantly, it’s not blurred, considering the slow shutter speed and being hand-held. Must be due to the in-camera shake reduction.
All-in-all I’m pretty pleased with the Pentax K-30
