Wildcat Creek Falls, YosemiteThat is lovely!
Non-techie here. Can you explain that? I've been using my 6D with an ISO limit of 6400 and pretty happy with the results. Are you saying I would get better results limiting at 3200 and bumping exposure in Lightroom?You are right of course. But, this is a 25 000 iso shot not 2500 iso. Actually it should be 25600 iso, its the 'max' setting of the Eos6d before turning on the even higher so settings, which I haven't even looked at nor used!
Meh, I mis-read that because shooting with iso 25k is outside my imagination :-p ... but in that case, I can contribute another smarta** comment: The max. analog iso of the 6d is 3200 (5d3: 6400), so if you shoot raw you can simply use this and underexpose - otherwise you're again just reducing the dynamic range.
So I've been interested in shooting the moon. So there is the context, static object, tripod, don't mind manually focusing, etc.Well, fortunately the moon will last for a long time. Maybe long enough to receive your Tamron 150-600. I ordered one on May 24 from B&H and it's still back ordered. Ridiculous. I'm actually considering cancelling the order.
Unfortunately I've put my energy and efforts into what I use on a regular basis, and that is focal lengths under 100mm. Now that I am very happy with my kit in that regards, I'm looking to invest some funds on the tele end a bit. I currently own the 70-200 f/4.0L but know I want to upgrade to an f/2.8 model.
So I was wondering how well it would work to just stack a 1.4x and 2x teleconverter? It looks like I could get the Kenko Pro 300s for a little north of 300 bucks for both. So that would give me 560mm @ f/8.0. Would I be satisfied with the results? Or am I just wasting time at this point and should consider spending the $1k on the new Tamron 150-600?
Keep in mind, the 70-200 upgrade will occur. And that I don't really have a need for anything greater then 200mm as I'm not into wildlife, etc. Oh, and I shoot on a crop sensor (70D) if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance!
For the folks who actually have this lens, how long did it take from your pre-order or reservation to actually getting it? Want it for some sports shooting in a month's time but its out of stock everywhere (surprise surprise) or available from japan for a ~20% markup (ebay).I ordered from B&H May 24 and received another email today saying it's still not in stock.
Not my favorite technique as I don't have the tools (proper focus rails), software (I use PS, Helicon and others made me crazy), or patience, but here's one of my more successful attempts that was necessary - it's a Maypop flower - really odd to me, but apparently an extremely common flower/weed 180mm macro @f/8, 1/800s, ISO 800:Awesome! The flower explodes out of the image.
Yes, it's from the observation tower stop on the Shark Valley tram. I love the Everglades. If you do go, drive all the way to the Flamingo Visitor Center area. Eco Pond just past there is loaded with feeding birds at 7 a.m. (Egrets, herons, Roseate Spoonbills, etc.)Here is a friendly fellow at a sewage treatment pond about 150 miles from my home. We have seen him eat a Blue-winged Teal in one big snap.He doesn't look like an alligator I would mess with! Cool shot.Various from the Everglades.Great photos and I really like that overhead shot - is that from one of the observation towers? I need to get down to the Glades one of these days - I'm just having a hard time convincing the wife (not the outdoor type) that it will be a fun trip.
