Can someone please post D7000 images shot with flash. It's difficult to judge a camera with daylight images.

I was playing around at a party on Friday with my D7000 and SB-600.

I was in a gymnasium, and the lighting was terrible. Incidentally, the AF seemed much snappier in this lighting than my D90.

Here is one of a couple friends @ ISO 800, f/8, 1/60, 50mm (using my Sigma 50/1.4).

Very nice. Is this a crop from a larger frame?

Have a great time :-)

Yes I cropped about 15% on the right and 25% on the left to eliminate as many people in the background as possible as the place was packed (top to bottom there was no cropping).

Just need to remove the guy's hat behind them in photoshop.

I am very happy with the way the D7000 renders skin tones however, very natural.

Jason, nice image!

I'm curious, though -- ISO 800, did you set it, or was it auto? Was the SB not bright enough for ISO 200, for example?

Thanks,
Zevi

Thanks.

You have it exactly right, the flash wasn't illuminating things fully to my liking, it was extremely dark in the room and I was bouncing off of ceilings that were about 12 feet high (though thankfully white). Not only were the subjects not properly exposed at ISO 200, the background was very underexposed. I personally like the illumination in the background (even though a dark background hides things, like the other people I cropped out). A little flash compensation might have let me shoot at a slightly lower ISO, but I am not worried about shooting at ISO 800 with the D7000, this is well within the safe zone for this camera.
At ISO 800 the D7000 has no real noise to worry about.

Thanks for the details, Jason.
Yes, the rear wall indeed looks quite illuminated. In fact, It is so well-lit, that I thought your flash was used just as a fill on their faces (there are a few "shining spots" on their faces, I thought at first that it was directed at them, not bounce off the ceiling).

Also, I agree about the D7000's no-noise at 800. But I was concerned that if you need to push it to 800 with a flash, than you may find yourself sooner than expected in the noisy high-ISO zone...

Cheers,
Zevi
