(as this can actually cause blurriness when you tripod mount it)
so your saying turn NR off and do NR post processing?
I believe Voldenuit and Spoofe both attested that anti-shake when mounted on a tripod can cause more harm than good, I also read a few articles on the Sony Steadyshot that claimed the same thing. I do have NR turned on.. so your saying turn NR off and do NR post processing?
Here is the 100% crop as promised. The entire photo at 100% looks like this, i chose the portion with the smoke stack to give you some contrast, you can notice a good amount of noise in the smoke too, just another thing I noticed.
I'm not sure what you mean by "streaking," but you wouldn't "over expose the image" - you'd need to leave the shutter open twice as long to get the same exposure, and the same exposure is the same exposure.Welch wrote:So with running it F/8 i'd get a much clearer picture but i'd have to leave the apeture open much longer, correct? This would probably have me over expose the image and introduce some streaking in the lights.
To get that shot, the lights on the plane need to be very bright relative to the lights on the ground. You're essentially exposing the jet lights for as long as they are in one place, but exposing the lights on the ground for the whole time. For normal levels of brightness, that's infeasible.Welch wrote:On one side of the image (to the left) out of the first pictures range is an airport... with that effect I'd like to try again later tonight possible to see if I can get one of the jets landing, with a streak of its lights the entire way to landing, that would be great.
$40 is a drop in the bucket. Being able to trigger your camera without touching it, either with a corded or cordless remote, will go a long way. If you're going to put that money towards something else, put it towards a real tripod+head.Welch wrote:Thanks for the link to the remote, i'm considering whether that or a new lens would be a better upgrade. Obviously not in the same price range, but 40.00 could go towards a new lens..
It might be worthwhile because your tripod isn't doing it's job - the camera is moving around. Of course, in that range of shutter speeds, it's essential that you don't just trigger the camera normally. At the very least you need to use the self timer. Regarding your star photo attempt...without knowing what you did it sounds like you may have some very unrealistic expectations there.Welch wrote:One more question, with the anti-shake turned OFF in these pictures on the tripod, is it possible that Anti-shake ON the tripod would be useful considering the distance im covering with the lens at 55mm... as in it would be beneficial to turn it back on, and only leave it off when I'm only running 18mm?
Part of that is assuming that you have a good tripod mounted on a stable surface and are using it properly. A cheapo blowing in the wind isn't all that stable.Welch wrote:I believe Voldenuit and Spoofe both attested that anti-shake when mounted on a tripod can cause more harm than good, I also read a few articles on the Sony Steadyshot that claimed the same thing.
