EOS Bodies - For Stills / Exposure control - 5D Mark II - Advise needed
« on: December 02, 2012, 12:17:55 PM »
Hello everyone,

I'm still new to photography and started with Canon EOS T2i. I rented Canon EOS 5D Mark II for a recent trip I made to Florida. This is the first time I used a FF camera and I can say that it blew my mind away with its image quality. I took 5D2, 24-105L and Canon 50mm f/1.4 with me. Most of the time this combo gave me stunning pictures however camera failed to expose correctly in low light conditions. I was using Aperture priority mode for more than 75% of the time with center focus point. ISO was in auto.

For example look at the following pictures, first one is f/1.4, 1/50s ISO 500 and second one is f/1.4, 1/50s ISO 2500. Both with center focus point and spot metering (tried with other metering options as well but results were same). First photo is little underexposed but second photo is over exposed. Can any please explain me why camera decide to choose two different ISO settings for shots taken in almost same environment. I still get confused with metering modes, if possible please explain that too.

f/1.4 1/50s and ISO500

f/1.4 1/50s and ISO2500

PS: I recently started shooting in RAW so I was able to fix the exposure and white balance on these photos.
PS 2: I'm sorry if I'm posting this thread in wrong section as I wasn't sure where to post it.

Third Party Manufacturers / So Nikon D600 is real after all

As the topic says, check out the leaked pics/specs at Nikon Rumor: First leaked Nikon D600 images

I am eager to see Canon's response to this one and hoping that canon will respond with a decent entry level full frame with 18~22 MP, usable ISO upto 3200 atleast, 6fps.

Street & City / Blacksburg, VA (Long exposure night shots)
« on: June 09, 2012, 08:10:56 PM »
Hello everyone!!

I have been a long time reader of this forum, posting for the first time.
Here are couple of shots I took of Blacksburg streets two weeks back. Please comment.

I don't personally own a camera as of now but I shoot whenever I get my hands on a good camera. These shots were taken using a Nikon D5100 which I took on loan from my university. I used to own a Canon T2i two years back but needed to sell it due some financial emergency.

The first one is HDR, created using 3 different exposures.
