Very nice shot indeed!  I really love that you can see the stars around the moon.

Sadly, I had an overcast night tonight.

1/500th second.





There always tomorrow and you certainly have the camera and lens for it.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Video processing software for the 5d3
« on: May 05, 2012, 11:14:26 AM »
I recently saw a review by Philip Bloom on the 5d3 video capabilities (Vimeo) and he indicated that he had obtained excellent results by post processing the footage through Adobe Premiere Pro (sharpening).  I am interested in purchasing the 5d3 primarily for the stills but would also enjoy doing videos.  My problem is I can’t afford both the camera and software. I’m currently using LR4 and Adobe Premiere Elements/Photoshop Elements 10 for processing.   My question is whether there is a cheaper alternative to Premiere Pro to obtain the same results?

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Shutter speed during video???
« on: May 03, 2012, 08:17:27 PM »
Shutter speed determines how long the sensor reads the image during the frame. So if you are shooting at 30 fps and shutter speed of 1/90 you'd have open shutter for 1/90 of a sec, and closed shutter for 2/90 of a sec. This affects motion blur in the frame, just like it would on a still. For the most "filmic look" you should use 1/50 on the 5dmkii at 24 fps. A film camera would normally shoot at 24 fps with 1/48 shutter speed. This is also known as  180 degree shutter angle, where the shutter is open for the same duration, each frame, as it is closed.

This is excellent information.  Thanks for sharing.

For a free on-line resource I go to Julieanne Kost who is one of the great trainers at Adobe. http://tv.adobe.com/evangelist/julieanne-kost/suggested-shows/
Just go to her channel...you can even subscribe and start from where you feel will make the most sense. I'd like to get your feedback if you check it out


I agree with the above.  Great stuff to get going with and incredibly easy to assimilate.  And it's free!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd say that you've learned pretty well.  Nice pictures and composition.

Nice vacation.  I use 100-400 mm zoom and the field of view is limited but the reach is excellent.  That being said your 300 should do wonders.  I actually prefer my 70 - 200 mm for "in close" work which is what the zoo setting should give you.  With the 400 you could take pictures of their individual pores/scales.  Depends on what you want but have fun there, its a great zoo.
