    Suggestion: I'd very much like to see a tutorial (or a live stream) on CP1 Noise Reduction.

    (I recently had to use ISO 128,000 on my Fuji X-T5 due to very low light. The camera reviews say results at this ISO are "acceptable" but I'm sure that my image could be greatly improved by good use of this tool ).

    Thanks for the feedback Simon.  That is a good suggestion for me to look at.

    128,000 Is pretty high!  What were you shooting out of interest?

    A train, so needed a fairly high shutter speed. This is unedited except for resizing.

    Simon Warren I almost think this shot would look cool with some motion/blur but not too much. Maybe 1/40s depending on how fast it's moving?

    Seems to me that 128000 is definitely usable at this scale. Which still seems mad to me!

    As Jack-W says, if you can pan / capture with a low shutter speed that can make for a great shot.

    If it's doing 200 km/h might be more of a challenge.  :D

    Motion blur is a useful suggestion though not easy to anticipate the speed of the target. My interest is the background location and composition is top important. Only a few steam trains pass in a year and always late evening. I took this shot for practice. The noise shows badly at 100 percent and does degrade the detail more than I'd like.

    David must have posted at the same time as mine sent. I can't pan cos background must be recognisable, but motion blur might be great if the loco I was planning for is smoking enough.

    Hello David,

    And thanks for a lot of really nice videos, really helpful to give ideas how to better edit our images, for all situations :)  Unfortunately few are in French, so I may not use the videos directly for our local photo-club here in the village, but it gives me good inspiration to show them some of the tricks I use on CO1, I have a friend illustrating Photoshop treatment too, as I have restricted myself to only one tool, as this is an occupation mostly for fun I have to minimise somewhat my expenses :)

    I have one suggestion for a new video, I'm ending up making mostly "images for the web" or for my screen, but I'll want to try to get some of them printed too.

    However, this is tricky as I really need to adapt the print settings to my selected "print house". Could you find a way to propose a video specifically on the set up a good print images relation with any preferred printing office. Suggestions how to send some test images, how to best analyse the result coming back, I'm sure there are good procedures how to minimise the print out of several tests as when you print out large, it becomes costly and you want it to be good at the first try.

    I'm mainly doing landscapes now, but would like to get back to portraits too, and you might well have a few procedures for different image types.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sincerely,
    Ivar
