New Lens Moon Shots!!
Feb 10, 2006

Still getting a feel for not only my 5D but the new Sigma 70-300 DG APO lens.

Here is a shot of the moon I took with the lens just before sunset. It is a handheld shot at 300mm magnification. I think this gave me some real insight into how much information is stored in the 5D RAW file and an idea of what the new lens can do.

The first image is simply a converted RAW file that was cropped down to about the middle 15% of the image.

The second is a result of doing some RAW and JPG processing in ACDSee Pro then cropping it. I did exposure compensation (note the blue sky is black, sharpening in RAW and in JPG, and removed some of the saturation to give it a more true gray.
