They're all nice but I especially like the shot of Mississauga. Have never seen it (or bothered to look) from that angle and time of day. Maybe because it never had much of a skyline before.

The condos have sprung up in the last few years...but that view has only become available recently with the closing of Ontario Place and opening of Trillium Park


A photo I took HERE published in National GeographicTime on your hands? Then HERE'S plenty more photos to nibble on (external link):

You gents with 5DS models - are you seeing hot pixels on long exposures? I've been reading on upgrading (10 years is a long time without buying any new gear) to the 5DSR, but since I do primarily long exposures the reports of hot pixels has me concerned. 30-60 seconds is my bread and butter, but I do 200-300 seconds quite often as well. Any thoughts?

Thanks to maxblack who sent me here from the TSE 24L II photo thread...

Joel T did some testing on it a while back...very thorough.

Really appreciated, thanks pal. Cole's review is one of a few that has highlighted my concerns - I'll be reading this article, which I didn't previously find via Google, with sincerity.

I've had a chance to read this with interest - from what I can tell, it may come down to QC as the images in the article look fine to me, with no hot pixels.

Has anyone had experience to the contrary?

I get hot pixels on every camera I have shot LE with...50D, 7DI, 5D2, 5DIV, A7R2 and A9...I think hot pixels are something to be dealt with in this genre, and can be dependent on several things, ambient temp, ISO, exposure duration, exposure frequency...

Kenny, you can pick up the a7rii on eBay now for around £1600 (grey import). Just saying ;-)a

No need to change your lenses and there is an app you can install (yeah Sonys have apps!) called smooth reflections. Basically what it does is you choose how many exposures you want to take and it takes them and then blends them in camera instantly and outputs a single raw file. That does 2 things - for short exposures of waterfalls for example it gives the effect of a longer exposure as all the short ones are blended together. This allows you to shoot at lower iso for a cleaner shot and also shorter duration to avoid hot pixels. The other thing it does which is what I like about it the most is you can shoot at high iso and make it look like iso 25!. I use this a lot for night photography.

As an example the shot below was shot in near pitch blackness around midnight at f/5.6 iso 1600 but the resulting raw file is cleaner than my daytime iso100 shots. This was 16 shots blended, 30 secs per shot. Not a hot pixel in sight

Food for thought....


Sorry this isn’t quite on topic but it’s simulated 9 stop ND

Eddie, that's a stunning photo mate. Thanks for the suggestion of migrating to Sony, and while I'm not loyal to any one brand, I can't be bothered to learn a new platform when I'm dead comfortable with Canon. Besides, I intend to keep my 5D II and could use both of them for events - I'm not intelligent enough to use two cameras of different menus and setups at the same time.

TRhoads - I think that's the answer I needed someone to say. I get hotpixels more often on my 5D II when the body is exposed to bright sunlight, i.e. ambient and operating temperature. So I should expect the same with any other camera, including the 5DSR. I think I might have just been scared off when I read one negative review.

No probs Kenny, you wouldn’t like the a7rii for events anyway as it’s a bit slower than what you will be used to, I just thought it might be a good fit for your landscape stuff. I know what you mean about two brands, every time I jump onto my Sony after using my Fuji I’m looking for a joystick with my thumb that isn’t there!

I am having that problem going between the a7r2 and a9...at first they feel the same in the hand...but operation is quite different.
