Brain,

When you use your Bigmos what do you set the metering on the T2i for. I took my new one out and did not get sharp shots .... however im not blaming the lens yet as i need to get used to this monster.


You talking about this, right (-2 -1 0 1 2)?

Im always keeping it in '0". I rarely mess with it to tell you the truth, unless its strictly necessary.

The lighting was just right for some b/w so did just that.

Continuing the experiments with high ISO, #2 was taken at ISO 3200.

C&C appreciated and welcomed.

I like the last one because there are no apparent water ripples and looks like the duck is embedded in a mirror. In the other ones the ripples kill them for me.

Moon shot, Bigmos handheld.

Brain doesn't like the ripples. I think they add to the photo and earn the right to stay. It would be really neat to remove the turbulence behind the duck in the first photo. Leave the big ripples but get rid of the faint little ones.

Thanks Brain.

Handheld and a shot like this - you sir have a very steady hand. Very nice shot too.

Edit - that experimental thing is great. What were you experimenting on/with?

Matthew - some like some don't. That is how it is. :) Yes I was a bit nor sure about the back ripples. Will remove those. Thanks.

Not pleased with the Bigmos possibly i have a soft copy. Center of focus is never quite right. Of course its day one and i am still just learning to hold it.

Brain i meant on the 9 focus points do you have it on auto for all or manual center focus

I use the center focus point only. Keep trying with the Bigmos. Use the OS in the #1 position only.

Thanks cab, Mitch. Was trying to be "artsy" with Mitch and Matthew rubbing it in all the time. :)

Brain - lol and I thought it was some photographic technique.....

As for whatever lens - for wildlife ALWAYS center point only. All points helps only when you have a clear sky background and no clouds in the path. Even clouds will otherwise throw the AF.

As for experimentation - have been playing around with high isos recently. Today for the first time tried 12800 (yes, it is 6400 electronically thrown to 12800) but results were not all that bad. Chroma noise lots of it but easily managed. Luminance noise not as easy but still manageable.

Will post results later.
