Yep... that's all the way in with the L lens. Here's a 100% crop of the same image. I need to get a 100-400 or better to get a good shot.



It's funny. In general everyone says the kit lens (18-55) is crap, but I've seen some nice images come from it.

Thanks a lot! That's odd though. I have a Canon Powershot G3 + Lensmate 52 adapter + Kenko KNT 20 add on lens. The combo supposedly gives you the equivalent to 280mm, but I took some shots of an eclipse last year, it doesn't get that close to the moon. Hmm, I'll have to try some more moon shots soon. Thanks again!

How about the Tamrons? I remember a few years ago the Tamron 28-200 was a highly acclaimed lens. Don't know the state of lens rankings right now though.

How did you get attributes?

At least in windows, right click the image and save the image to your harddrive. Then right click the file and choose Properties, then in the pop-up dialog choose the Summary tab, then Advanced >> button.

Thanks
After seeing what shutter speed was used, I tried for the same shot with a Nikon Coolpix 8800. Not as good as Archosman's set up and I didn't get the white balance correct.This is as big as I can get.

A large focal range lens would be really nice, unfortunately I'm on a high school budget and it would be kinda tough to get a $250+ lens right now (im jobless )

Edit: Quick check in Photoshop Elements, nope, no flash.
I think he meant mine (Half Dome in Yosemite). Your shot is pretty darn cool, though.

Here's a wider shot I took from that same spot. (I would've killed for some clouds!)


And sunset on top of Sentinel Dome. (I would've killed for some more clouds!)


Both with the 70-200 f/4L. I love that lens.

And one more - a self portrait taken atop Mt. Tamalpais (just north of the Golden Gate). From the same night as my Pt. Reyes boat and trees in the fog pic.

Still in general that's as big as his. In your attributes I see Focal length == 89mm in your camera, but that should also be similar to around 200mm in 35 SRLs.

The Powershot G3 stock has a 4x optical lens, equivalent to 140mm. With the addon lens it's actually 2x that == 280mm. When taking the pic the max focal length shown with my camera from the pics properties will be 29mm (eq. 140mm). The camera really internally doesn't realize there is an add-on lens, but the true number should be 58mm (eq. 280) with the add-on lens on.

I'll take pics with and without the add-on with the zoom fully in to show you guys. From what I remember mine really is nowhere as close as your shots.

Ah ok wait, I was guessing something didn't match. With no add-on lens the Coolpix 8800 has an optical zoom of 10x == 350mm!! No wonder mine, even with the add-on (280mm) doesn't get that close.

I'm thinking with Archosman's 200mm Canon L lens the effective focal length must become something way more than 280mm for those pics to get so close. Probably because of a 2x+ adaptor ring the final focal length must be effectively around 400mm+

Here are some pics I thought were cool...I have some great pics of paris but I can NEVER find them, I saw them when I was reinstalling windows or something but have since lost them again...maybe they're on the laptop, I have no idea.

At whatever that place is called...fort eustis or something like that, at the beach...



I was working outside with my dad and was like COOL CLOUDS so yeah...



Display Crusader (I can't remember lol) at Oceana (I've seen them SOOO many times haha)

And some good stuff, lol:

The camera I took these pictures with was an Olympus C750. I can not afford a digital SLR right now so I will probably buy a Canon film body; that way I can get a digital rebel somewhere down the line and use the same lenses.

Here are a couple that I haven't posted before.
