    2010 Prius L.A. - a set on Flickr

    Lots of photos from the event not only showing the cars but also the event including wonderful displays, activities, great food, and ambiance at the Nokia Theater. Dark inside but thank goodness for iso 3200! Met lots of great Prius lovers too.

    As for the car, the power mode was quite a kick, the 25 mph EV mode limit disappointing, and the center console not to my liking. The temperature controls are even worse than the gen 2, taking even more attention and eyes off the road than the old controls. The tech package was very very impressive. Buying all those gadgets will surely eat into the budget for gas savings but I won't be able to resist (when the PHEV version come out, that is).

    iso *6400*?? How did you do that and not get much more CCD
    noise than you wound up with? [actually your EXIF data says
    3200, but that's still way high gain..]

    He's using a Nikon D3. It's got a huge monster CCD (2.5 times bigger than my XTi) with a comparatively low resolution, so it's getting ridiculous amounts of light, which lets it work well at ridiculously low ISO settings.
