  • I haven't kept up with the superzoom cameras, my last one being a old Lumix FZ40 with a 1.7x T-Con add-on lens. I'm shocked that the magnification you are getting. Great job! Here is a handheld ...
  • Replied in Moon detail
    Stacking images can help but the digital zoom will not improve resolution or detail.
  • Replied in Moon detail
    Never had the Lumix FZ80 or 60but I had the FZ-18 and FZ-40 along wit the 1.7x T-Con telephoto lens. Both did reasonably well. Here are a couple pictures from at least 10-12 years ago. The FZ-18 ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    Someone suggested you have a weight from the center of the tripod. That can help if there is any breeze. Don't exceed what the tripod is rated for. Also shoot with the lens hood on unless you have ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    My 1st moon shot in 2001. Full resolution. Shot with my second digital camera, a Kodak DC3400. 2MP with a 2x optical zoom.
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    You're right. No one know everything and if they did, it would change in a few weeks anyway. I remember the Brownie. My mother had one (and I'm 68). My first digital was in 1998 and was a Kodak ...
  • The international version is the same camera. It doesn't come with a US warranty and may be more difficult to get repaired. It would be wise to check with the seller and see before buying. I just ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    You were asking about lenses. I recently paid $609 (on sale) for my Sigma 100-400mm. I wanted a 150-600mm but they have a more limited use due to size. They run about $999. Sigma and Tamron both ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    With you lens, you have to option of using a 1.4 or 2.0x TC (teleconverter) They can even be stacked together giving a 2.8x magnification. I've experimented quite a bit before. The 1.4x is good. ...

    I still see some motion blur. Try the 10 second timer on the tripod along with turning off the stabilizer. You ca get a corded or un-corded remote to use with a tripod.  That way the camera can ...
  • Been near there many time for the NHRA Springnationals. That is a common plane but could be the same guy working that area. One year they used a chopper.
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    You're absolutely right. When you get about 1/2 the moon in sunlight, you can see a lot more. I'm waiting until I get a tripod mount (from China) for my Sigma lens. No one else has one. Then I'll ...
  • Do you live near London or South Vienna?
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    One shot. You may try exposure bracketing plus high speed continuous and you get 3 variations each time. When focusing, use the smaller square, not the one with the dot in the center but the one ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    The 2nd shot in AE mode only had a shutter speed of 1/80 and it shows a little blur most noticeable on the outer edge at the 4-6 o-clock position. The edge looks doubled and I noticed the details ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    Here are a couple shot hand held with the 90D and Sigma 100-400 lens. These are unaltered except for being cropped.  tried a bunch of settings and the fast shutter speeds (1/2500 to 1/4000) ...
  • Replied in Shoot The Moon
    Your shutter speed is way too fast. Here is an old picture I took in 2012, I chose it because it was with a 70-300mm lens. I usually use manual mode in Live Mode. Then I have control over the ...
  • Here are some others taken maybe 15 years ago. It was with a Panasonic FZ18.  The picture quality is very poor but just to show I could keep a small moving target framed with the red-dot. Full ...
  • Not with the 90D yet. But with an older T3i here are a couple. I was trying to get some shots of a crop duster. He got as close as 200' and was moving (I'm guessing) 120-150 mph. I was using a ...
  • Just got a chance with clear skies to take a moon shot with the 90D and Sigma 100-400 lens. I shot this in raw and processed for maximum detail. This was taken handheld 15 minutes before sunset. I ...
