Thank you so much for considering my picture.
I used a camera like that 20 years ago. It was called "Cambo Wide" or something. I used a 60mm Super Angulon on it. It came with adapter for 90mm and helical focusing. I must have done over a thousand negs with it. Nothing's new.
Thank you so much!
jetals: This certainly fits the challemge theme. Unfortunately, I don't think that it is sharp.
Of course it's not sharp. It's done with a x1.7 TC, that is a 1000mm lens hand held at 1/40 sec in a storm! Only thing keeping this together is the IS of the camera :-) The wind was blowing at 100 km/h out there. Nothing stayed at the same place for very long ...
Thanks! Thought I would post something people don't see very often. There is very limited access to this place. I know the guy with the key :-)
Thank you so much everybody!
That is correct. I know most people who do starscapes make a composite image; 1 still shot of the landscape in the evening or early dawn, and multiple shots with tracker during the night. I like to show how the earth is moving through the universe. If I want something in the foreground sharp, I use a flashlight for a couple of seconds, but mainly I like the blur of movement.
Five Piece: Very nice capture there.
Goodbye Adobe! Hello competition :-) I will keep my CS6 for years. Maybe I'll blow dust of my old Leica R6 while waiting for someone to fill the void ... Take all the hassel of going analogue just to feel free from time to time.
Thanks Gary! We can't win every time :-)
Sigma made a camera like this in 2008. The DP1. You can get one used for $150. Well worth the money. Probably better optics. Man, the world is going backwards these days.
ageha: Wow, that's blurry...
It was taken from my livingroom with a compact camera :-) Of course it's blurry ...
High ISO is good, but resolution for 5DII is better than 6D and 5DIII up to ISO3200. From ISO6400 the other two is better. Strange development strategy. It's like an everybody-should-take-pictures-in-the-dark competition ...
Does not suport Panasonic FZ200. Bummer.
jaykumarr: absolutely wonderful photo... great..
Thanks!I have just bought the FZ200. It will give me 2 stops more aperture and a 1 minute exposure time, so I'm gona do this better the next time later this autumn ...
