Yes. Here are two more from my flight the other day. The plane was ordered by the control tower to circle around the island before landing. Well for one I didn't mind because it gave me the opportunity to grab some aerial views of Honolulu.

Call me crazy, but I think they do that on purpose on a good day; it leaves an impression, then maybe you'll want to come back again.

Of course, this is assuming this wasn't an inter-island flight...

Hope everyone likes these. I had a fun time taking them although I'm hazarding a guess, considering I was running all over the place trying to get the best angle/light for my shots, more then a few people probably thought I was a little crazy. Panorama pictures taken with an iPhone 5. All photos were taken in or around the immediate area of a local Starbucks located in an area of Winnipeg called Osborne Village. I really like how the 2nd and 4th one turned out, they just look so right to me. I never knew playing around with a silly iPhone's panorama setting could be so much fun.

I nearly forgot, this pic was taken down the street from Osborne Village. A rather soothing sort of pic and as you can guess I was walking over a bridge when I decided to quickly snap it.

Super Moon 2013. Taken from my driveway using 70-200 mm with 2x teleconverter.

Very cool.

Nice moon. Where I am right now, it was super hazy and I had to improvise to get any 'deceng' shots of the moon. Ill be posting them when I get back. I also had to shoot handheld with a 70-210 no converter redface.gif
post #10840 of 12449

I still don't really know how to shoot some proper moon pictures :/
Too long exposure, and the picture gets way too bright. Too short exposure and...yeah, you know what I mean.
I don't expect my DSC-RX100 to be able to do such an amazing shot like Jon L managed to get with his teleconverter, but at least something that does not just look like a super bright spot in the sky.

post #10841 of 12449

 

Speaking of the moon - I used my old Canon SX20IS at 560mm FL, f8 for this.

post #10842 of 12449

I've had the best experience shooting the moon when setting a manual exposure of f/8.0 and shutter speed of 1/125 sec.

 

Edit: Forgot to mention iso 200.

"I don't expect my DSC-RX100 to be able to do such an amazing shot like Jon L managed to get with his teleconverter, but at least something that does not just look like a super bright spot in the sky."

 

Actually, even at 200 mm end of 70-200 lens, with 2x TC, you are still at 400 mm, which is not much for moon shots. To do this easier, a supertelephoto lens like 600-800 mm, maybe even with teleconverter, would have been nice. Not having such nice toys, I had to improvise. I shot 3 different shots at different exposures, combining them using exposure fusion technique, then heavy-cropping, followed by commercial software for RAW-presharpening and output sharpening. One of my original photo's basically don't look that much better than a "bright spot in the sky" as seen below.

Can anyone recommend a good camera, preferably a mirror less one in the range of 300 to 500. I'm going to Disney this Friday and would like to purchase a kit that comes with a lens. I been using a small Canon point and shoot for a couple of years now and would like an upgrade. Saw a Sony Nex F3 with lens for 350.00 in slickdeals. Is it a good beginners camera? I just need the basics as I'm not a camera oriented person. Any help is welcomed, thanks.

Get a Lumix G-series, maybe add a little bit for the G3 or G5. It might not be pocketable (then again neither is the NEX unless you buy the 16mm lens) and is only marginally smaller than a small DSLR, but  trust me when I say you'll need a viewfinder. I can't see squat on the LCD in bright sunlight, whether it's my smartphone, my Dad's digicam, or my E-P2. The smaller Olympus bodies and the GX1 have a provision for an electronic viewfinder but they cost extra (although they can tilt to help composition depending on the situation), and you might not want to deal with that detachable finder (you might lose it, or the cover for its hotshoe attachment, you might break it off if it doesn't fit right in your bag, etc). NEX cameras no longer have a provision for the electronic viewfinder, unless they have it (NEX-6 and NEX-7).

 

You could also look at the Fuji X20 and Canon G15 (and the Nikon equivalent, P7000 I think), although "not a camera oriented person" means they should be last on your list even if it's worth a look. A bonus feature with some caveats - they have optical viewfinders. They can help composition if it's too bright, but since they don't see TTL (through the lens) like the LCD or EVF or the older SLR prisms by sitting on top of the lens, there's a parallax error involved (meaning the frame you see if off a bit from what the lens really sees). The X20 however has information overlay on its OVF, so not only can you select where to focus like a DSLR or EVF on a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, but I think it also has a visible overlay to help you get the focus point location and framing right. This takes a lot of understanding these issues though, and usually a lot of people who use the X-cams tend to be the ones who also used film cameras like the Hexar, Canonet, and Contax. Also, these are only really problems with up-close shots.
