The one thing we Scots are good at is dealing with hangovers.

Aye, that's all we need, jakies like you spreading a hackneyed stereotype. I put it to my learned colleague, yir a bawbag.  ;D

45 long exposure shots in 15 minutes? Yeah, that oughta do it! The sensor has to cool down a bit between these types of shot.

Just because it can also do video for long periods doesn't mean the sensor is used in the same way.

I took a look at your link and can only suggest the points look a bit like hot pixels (assuming not all hot pixels would go red). I'm only speculating but maybe a combination of higher ISO and long exposure has caused them to get a bit hot.

Were you taking a number of long exposure shots in quick succession? This could produce hot pixels. Perhaps our resident guru Neuro might know.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 Problem black halos around stars in RAW files...hmm
« on: September 08, 2012, 02:23:49 PM »
The black circles seem to appear only around the stars that look to be clipped by the exposure. That may have something to do with it - possibly coupled to the amount of sharpening used too. Have you tried less sharpening? Can you give any other exif data?

Then again, maybe you've discovered a new astronomical phenomenon!  ;)

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.






The time is near, and it's all written in the sky...

Soooo........if I think I understand what you're saying then basically there will be an announcement at Photokina of a 46mp 4.3fps, ISO 25-12800 camera with DR equal to the Nikon 800 and a new 50mm f1.0 lens.

Phew! Why didn't you just say that then?!?

Canon General / Re: Photo quotes - can you live by them all?
« on: September 01, 2012, 02:39:50 PM »
I must confess I had to look up the "f8..." quote as I'd never heard it before. I was already aware of Weegee and his work but didn't know it came from him.

Canon General / Photo quotes - can you live by them all?
« on: September 01, 2012, 10:48:10 AM »
Not exactly Canon-related but certainly worth thinking about and applying to your own work:

http://www.digitalrev.com/article/25-photography-quotes-that-you/Mzg2MjA1NzQ_A

So how many of these quotes do you live by or apply only when you remember them?

If David Bailey says he's only taken two good pics in his life and I reckon I've taken three, how come he is so much richer than me?

Hmmm, if money is no object it would have to be:

1D X plus a few mk2 versions of the big whites (like, duh!)

I'd still keep my 5D3 for those "silent shutter" moments (take that 1D X owners!).

Hasselblad H4D-200MS for when 199 megapixels just isn't enough.

But mainly a Leica M9 Mono and the Noctilux 50mm f0.95. Yum yum. I actually gave the original M9 and f0.95 serious thought but couldn't bring myself to part with the cash - you get a lot of buyer's remorse for £12k or so.

As a slight aside - if Canon can currently do f1.2, why don't they go bananas and make a sub-f1.0? Yes it'll cost the earth but the world will always have wealthy people - it's tough to produce a £5k watch and make it sell but make one with a million-buck price tag and it'll sell tomorrow.

Lenses / Re: Lens choices for airshow
« on: August 23, 2012, 01:59:31 PM »
Many good suggestions from all of you. At the moment I think I'll take the 17-40 for static aircraft, 70-200 for the Red Arrows where you need a slightly wider field of view and the 300/1.4TC for everything else. I don't think I'll take a monopod as it's just something else to carry and might be too restrictive for panning quickly (though will change my mind a few times between now and 3 weeks time!).

If any of you are interested in well shot, detailed/abstract images of a variety of aircraft I can highly recommend "In Plane View: Abstractions of Flight" by Caroline Russo. Top quality images that will give you plenty inspiration for shots that you may never otherwise think of.

Keep those airshow shots coming!
