+Myriam Joire​ Awesome low light performance! I've got NEX C3 18 - 50 lens and I have a wierd filling that on auto + HDR result wouldn't be better than yours #G4. Is it on auto + hdr or you've played with manual settings a bit?

Hey Myriam, I love the old vdub bus. We traveled across the country in the 60's when I was just 2 weeks old - there were a total of 8 children in the car. We drove 2400 miles - good lord. That's how you did it back then. :)

Story
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. She’s been called a “personality” and a “pundit“, but despite being (in)ternet famous, she’s just a tomboy with a fondness for other queers, punks, nerds, and misbegotten social deviants. She's based in San Francisco.

Bragging rights
Tech evangelist. Former editor at Engadget. I blog about mobile. I hack stuff. I'm a developer. I'm queer.
