Focusing into the sun always sucks, but in this case the sun is actually behind me and I've placed a gelled speed light behind the couple to "fake" the sun.

Job well done. Controlled light.

Hi

I know someone here has the Sigma 18 -35 f/1.8. Just curious to know if you had any focus issues, and whether you bought the usb dock as well. I've been thinking about this lens for a while and almost ready to take the plunge! I read such good things about it.

I know someone here has the Sigma 18 -38 f/1.8. Just curious to know if you had any focus issues, and whether you bought the usb dock as well. I've been thinking about this lens for a while and almost ready to take the plunge! I read such good things about it.

I agree with MM, Rose. I don't have the 18-35, but Sigmas recent offerings have been spectacular and a 1.8 constant aperture zoom is very tempting. Also, I've seen RebelSimon post some amazing images with it!

Touch screen focus of the 70D perfectly suits my wide open shooting style, with a 9/10 focus hit rate :)

The middle shot is absolutely fantastic, and she is beyond stunning!

Thanks Robert and Jeff. I'll order it Monday ☺ as you say Jeff the 1.8 is tempting!

What is the recommended shutter speed for capturing moon without any blur. You exposure values (f/11, 1/250 and iso 400) seems to way less than what I was getting on my camera. I had to use very slow SS (1-2 seconds) in order keep ISO low.

I might check the ISBN and see if I can find somewhere to order it that way. Maybe another seller on Amazon?

Back out to Haumoana today to see what other changes last week's floods had made. Low tide.

New shingle bar and creek flow.

F/9 should be fine and shutter with IS can be whatever you can keep steady given the focal length you use (if using 135mm then a shutter of 80 is fine) and manually set you iso to 100 or 160 ~ which you will appreciate if you crop your moon so there is less noise..

For my 600mm I use iso 100, f/9 and 200 shutter. Slight changes with phase of the moon.

Addendum: your camera will complain you are terribly underexposed but regardless, manually set iso to quite low. The camera's brain sees a picture that is 80-90% black with a bright spot in the middle and thus is not interpreting your shot correctly.

I never use a tripod, always handheld. So yes with a tripod you can lower the shutter more obviously and counteract with f/11 but you may overexpose details. I have never shot the moon at night with less than 300mm so the above is my best guess.
