Freezing a waterfall, and bouncing water. And the eye is the Eye of Horus, tis believed to be all seeing, and figured that would be a good thing to have on a lens :P

Sounds pretty interesting, fancy posting a few results (or a link to a thread if you've already made one)?

What do you mean?

The aperture setting, i see the shutter speed next to Tv and then the ISO from what i can read...

the Tv indicates its in shutter priority mode. Av would show there in aperture priority, M if it was in manual. He probably hasn't started metering, so it wouldn't show any aperture value.

I have to say, that's a good looking camera. Just the design of it, clean lines, simplicity... :)

Are you trying to say he might have had to shoot at 1/8000 because he was shooting at a wide aperture? If that was the case he wouldn't be at ISO 800, he'd drop it to 100 and shoot at 1/1000. The high ISO implies he set it purposely to get such a fast shutter speed, plus if he wanted to shoot at wide apertures he'd just use Av.

Well, usually for waterdrops I use 1/200, F8 and iso 100. The idea is to underexposed you setup, so when you take a picture you get an all black one. Than you use your flash (generally ocf) and you use it to light the drops. Around 1/12 should be enough. The flash duration is really short it can be as low as 1/20000. That is why you get no motion blur, the only time there was light is during 1/20000. This way you get a clean iso 100 picture with perfectly sharp drops :)

Well that's a fair point but he wasn't using flash, either he just didn't bring one with him/didn't fit the situation or he wouldn't have even been able to get the shutter speed below his sync speed. For example if he dropped to ISO 100 he'd still be getting 1/1000 so he'd need to narrow his aperture, however he might already be close to the diffraction limit (say around f/11) or he might want the narrow depth of field and is closer to the maximum of f/4.

My first Canon, given to me by my father in the late `70s. I hardly ever used the flash, but gave it a new skin around 5 years ago. Still takes great shots.

She looks GOOD in her new Red Dress! ;)
Nice collection of camera's. And a Black G2? Nice. I still have my G5 as well. Just had a pang of guilt strike me, my G5 has been just sitting in the closet for quite a while now. :(

Thanks! I got it recently as I wanted to try out some film shooting. I agree as it does look great, but it seems that the meter is way off! Just a small inconvenience though and definitely a lot of fun so far :D

lol haven't even looked at them since I've been so busy with school and work.

And yes people, my flash is just a 430 so no sealing on that guy, and didn't have a tripod or anything to have it chill to OCF. honestly due to where the camera was in relation to me and the waterfall I was just more concerned with freezing the water and if it looks sick enough I'll go back and reshoot it and get everything figured out.

The 1d Mark IV took the picture.
Far right is my old water/diesel/oil soaked 1D mkI, middle is the fired damaged 40D and lastly my 1D Mark IV.

The Mark I and the 40D were in my sailboat when the boat caught fire. The 40D was damaged by the heat generated by the fire. The 1D was in my camera bag, submerged for a few hours under 2 feet of a mix of water, diesel and engine oil. The Mark IV is replacement from the insurance company.
Both the 40D and 1D's CF card were intact. So I was able to recuperate photos of my last days with our sailboat.
The leather covering on the 1D have been removed, I also started opening her up. Obviously the 40D and MKI don't work anymore. The 28-135mm suffers from heat damaged, the 50mm was submerged.
I also had a Canon FD 500mm mirror and a Zenitar 16 in the bag.
I miss my MK1, i'm real tempted to get another one to go with the MkIV. Or maybe try a 1DS.
