Hi there! I've included a link to a video I posted on how to set your camera up to photograph lightning. Hope it helps!
Great challenge idea!
Great HDR capture!
Steven Sax: great shot! how did you get the foreground and the rock so well lit, and how did you use a shutter speed so short?
Hi there, it is a combination of two exposures 4 hours apart as you cannot access the National Park after hours unfortunately.
This is really awesome! I took a similar photo with a D7000 but the water aspect makes this photo really stand out.
Wow great capture. I will have to look in to this reverse mount idea
I bought this camera 7 months ago and I absolutely love it for what I use it for. I live to shoot Lightning, astrophotography, long exposure etc. and the 6D shines beautifully due to its amazing low noise sensor up to ISO6400. The standard kit lens 24mm-105mm f4 L series is amazing. So sharp and accurate.
Where it lets me down is in the studio. In the field I manual focus everything, in the studio however I prefer to use autofocus at times. The autofocus on this camera sucks. Yes it can focus on the light of a full moon, but for everyday use it’s about 3 years behind the market. My guess is that the 6D came out after the 5dIII and Canon had to make sure that people still bought the 5dIII even though the 6D sensor is better in low light hands down. The 5DIII focus system is great!
With regards to the multiple exposure and HDR modes. Both are features that I think all serious SLR cameras should have moving forward. They are fantastic!
bionicsluggz: will CANON provide a camera to compare or beat the NIKON D800?
You may want to put the Canon 6D in the comparison table and compare it to the Nikon D800. The results don't lie, the 6D beats the D800 from ISO 400 onwards.
I submitted a picture of an actual Australian Highway. It may be mistaken for a back road... but in Australia we don't have many awesome highways! Particularly in far north Queensland near the top of Australia!
Eddie Perry: Wow great image. Congrats on the win!!
Thank you it was a great collection from everyone that entered
