05 May What Remote Sutter Release for your DSLR?
Hopefully I can help you choose!
I have been through several different remote releases trying to find the one that suits my needs best. I think I have finally found the one I like best… for me wireless is my preferred choice, having a remote attached to the camera with a wire hanging around is another opportunity for the wind to create a vibration and blur my shot, so the more I can reduce the possibility the better in my opinion… anyway, watch the video if you’re interested to find out more, and of course, to see what remote I picked as my favourite….
Today’s iCandy – Sunstar over Queenstown
The night before we drove around to find a good spot to come back to watch the sun rise over Queenstown. We found a road with a barrier at the end of it, but the barrier had been cut and you could see a track worn by many cars and campers before us… As soon as I drove down the track and spotted the view I could see why… so we headed back for sunrise… by the way, to get the sun to look like a star like this, use a bigger F number (f stop)… check out technical mumbo jumbo below the photo to see what I used for this one!
The Technical Mumbo Jumbo
[tabbed tabs=”Camera|Mode|ISO|Aperture|Shutter|Lens|Filter|Other info”] [tab] I used my trusty D800 for this one [/tab] [tab] I used Aperture Priority (aka AV) [/tab] [tab] ISO100 – I always shoot as low as possible [/tab] [tab] f25 – Using a higher f number when shooting into the sun or lights will create the star effect [/tab] [tab] 1/15 of a second [/tab] [tab] Nikon 28-300mm lens [/tab] [tab] no filter used [/tab] [tab] All I have done is sharpen things a little in Lightroom 4, added clarity, vibrance and contrast. Then I opened it in CS6 to remove some noise and a few dust bunnies [/tab] [/tabbed]
