Like how the human beings provide some perspective
I guess sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get the shot!
Cool effect and good choice of pitch ;-)
Cool effect. I've used the StarStaX freeware program for similar - it includes a Comet Mode for its Gap Filling (i.e. star trails) stacking mode, but you've got more control. I like how your "head" appears white-hot, followed by red-hot tails.
Nicely done. Since you were hand-held, did you purposely lean in to force the focal plane to move or did you simply rely on hand-holding jitter for that?
Cool image. I shot 160 images and only captured one meteor, so your hit rate was better :)
I like the checkerboard effect - well done!
Pretty clever! I might have cloned out the patched wall as it detracts a bit and makes it look like it might have been photoshopped.
dopravopat: HDR is also stacking - stacking of exposure.
Classic HDR uses image stacking to retrieve tone maps, which is analogous to stacking multiple planes of focus to increase DOF or multiple frames to average out noise. It's true you can do HDR from a single photo, but you can also sharpen or remove noise from single images as well without stacking.
And there are obviously more than just the two types of stacking you've noted above. Another is to depict movement, as we see in the stacked flag and the stacked watch hands in this challenge or in star trails, etc. And I'm sure there are other uses for image stacking as well.
Interesting shot - looks great enlarged! And you phosphorescence appears to last well over an hour.
Interesting stack with unique result.
I can't tell which is which. Did you destitute and the blue out the sky?
Todd3608: How many consumers actually want 4K quality. I am the geek in our family and have zero desire for 4K. 1080P is good enough for me.
@dougbm_2: No poll necessary - all I had to do was read the many FZ1000 threads in the Panasonic Compact Cameras forum.
It's likely that downsampled 4k video will result in better 480p that shooting directly in 480. 1080p and 4K are just formats, much like MP4 and AVCHD are. Most cameras that shoot 1080p can't resolve 1080 lines - just like these 4K cameras can't resolve full 4K resolution. However, these 4K cameras can resolve more lines than their 1080 counterparts and thus will result in better downsampling results.
For example, if the 4k camera could really only resolve 1100 lines but the 1080 version only 700 lines, it's obvious that you should get better 480 results from the 4k video. I've seen other comments in Panasonic threads where this is exactly what many are hoping for from the 4k video. I've also seen that 4k video editing isn't that much of an increased strain for processing.
Many are interested in using 4K in shutter-priority mode as an 8MP 30fps stills burst mode with zero buffer lag.
EthanP99: Just so we're clear, f4 is now considered "fast lens" ?
f/2.8 is always bigger than f/4 and one could also argue brighter. But f/4 can be faster than f/2.8 if the sensor allows use of higher ISO for same IQ. f/2.8 is faster glass than f/4, but not necessarily a faster camera.
Sdaniella: Leica:f=9.1mm-146mm zoomad=f/2.8-f/4.0=9.1/2.8-146/4.0=3.25mm-36.5mm aperture diameters
FF(x2.747/x2.740):Eq.FoV=25mm-400mmf-stop=FoV/ad=25/3.25-400/36.5:=25mm-400mm f7.7-f11 Eq.DoF+FoV
Thanks for noting this correctly as Eq.DoF+FoV. There are near fist fights in some of these comments over the use of Equivalent Aperture instead of the true equivalencies.
W5JCK: Bridge cameras like this one and the RX10 or still what I consider to be sub-enthusiast level. The 1" sensor is too small to deliver quality IQ at any low light level. That f/2.8 lens on a 1" sensor is equivalent to a f/5.0 lens on an APC-S camera. Pretty darn slow for wide open, and thus rather lacking in low light capability. A f/4.0 lens on a 1" sensor is equivalent to a f/7.1 lens on an APC-S camera. So this camera basically has a f/4--f/7.1 zoom lens compared to APS-C DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Meh! For the price of the RX10 you would be better off with a a6000 and a few good lenses. This one is cheaper, but still not worth the price for anyone who wants an enthusiasts level and above IQ. This is a mom/dad camera used to take little pictures to post on the internet. Again, meh!
You are baiting your own hook.
