I shot this with a Panasonic Lumix with the setting just set for "Intelligent Auto".

Here are some pics taken with a Canon 50D. Sigma 30mm 1.4 lens.

Hapa Haole Hideaway





Jungalero Lounge



This one was taken at 14mm. f4.0. +1/3EV.



Molokai Bar. 10mm F3.5



Mai Kai



If I have access to a tripod (or something I can rest the camera on) and not much movement in the area I'm shooting, I shoot at as low an ISO as I feel comfortable, and depending on what I'm trying to do, I either crank my f-stop up so that I have great depth of field, or I lower it so that I can get shallow DOF. I tend to shoot on Aperture Priority, but find myself oftentimes going to full manual. I also find that in some situations, bumping the exposure value up a third or two thirds gives me a little better light so that I can see the darker details. My 1.4 prime lens does a great job of gathering light, and at 3200 ISO I can handhold the camera up to 1/30 and sometime 1/15 depending on how much I've had to drink. The new Trader Scott's is going to be a challenge to shoot, because of the blue lights, but I have plenty of time since all I have to do is go downstairs.

Exactly it is not just helpful but required to have no movement at all, and that's with any camera, movement = blur.

The iPhone 6 is rumored to have an image stabilized lens, which should help cut down on motion blur.
