I've been around a long time, just reading and benefiting from the wealth of information on these forums. Let me know if I put any of that to good use.

I'm very impressed at being able to push up to 2000 ISO on some of these shots, and more recently pushed to 3200 ISO and got usable images! Coming from a Canon XS, I used to get nervous when I hit around 800 lol.

Very cool!! Love the visual effect. How exactly do you "zoom burst"?


I used to think I was indecisive,but now I'm not too sure.

Fairly straight forward to do.
Set up on a tripod using live view, what i did was set to 1/2 second shutter speed and 2 second timer.
press the shutter release to get focus, then press to take the shot, during the 1/2 second exposure zoom in while keeping the camera as steady as possible.
With this being my first try at this kind of shot i did notice the faster you zoom the faster the shot looks and also your focus point becomes the centre of the shot where your eyes are drawn to.
Good luck if you give it a try and please post your shots if you are happy with them.

Thank you for the quick reply. I have never used the timer... looking in the index for timer I found timer is not listed. Do you know where to find the timer in the instruction manual, and/or tell me how to use it?

The timer is easy to find and use, i use this instead of a cable/remote release.
Flip the screen round, Press the Q button, on the second row down, second from the right select that box which sounds like yours will have a square ? and press "set" you will now have 5 options, scroll across till you get to the icon on the far right which has a number 2 and a dial, press set again and thats it done. To revert back to your normal setting just scroll back until you go back to the "square" option and press set. Alternatively on the small top screen press "drive" then use the toggle switch to scroll through the 5 options until you see the timer and 2 option then just tap the shutter button to select it. Hope that helps. Its not compulsory to use this option but i did to give me a bit time to zoom at the right time.

Got it. Thank you :)

That is going to take some practice to know when to turn the zoom dial and quickly!!!!!

Another example, this time with a faster zoom.

My first attempt at a panorama using photoshop CC, Made from about 8 individual photos.

There are a couple of problems with it but overall I'm happy for my first try. Onwards and upwards hopefully.

Another of those fairly simple techniques that can give you some pretty dramatic results. Now I'm wondering what kind of results you might get if you take two or three zoom burst shot like this and layer them together. Maybe shoot the same scene but pan the camera slightly from one shot to the next. I think Canon DPP has a Composite tool that might help combine them into one shot.
