Evening Light at Cambridge (R1 image)
Dec 11, 2013

Not been out with my camera for a while, so I was pleased to chance upon some good light during a family trip to Cambridge at the weekend. Just the one image here as time was scarce, but I shall definitely return in the future..

that's a really slow shutter
In reply to Mikey64, Dec 11, 2013

but it froze the people on the river well.  You can handhold the R1 down to very low shutter speeds because of its design.  Did you use a tripod?

Nice photo. The building looks great in the golden light.

Thanks a lot John, glad you like it. Yes the shutter speed was just quick enough to keep the people in the punts acceptably sharp. I shot from my tripod as usual, could have used a slightly wider aperture, say F11, but I wanted to keep as much front to back sharpness as possible. Always loath to increase ISO from baseline 160 on the old R1..

A beautiful shot demonstrating all the things I love about the RX1 images. At its very best when the subtle differences between the tones bring out soft lighting.
