I'm not sure about the Canon EOS series - as you said, check the websites.

Cheers, Mr. P



Yup, Canon EOS allows shutter speed changing, it's a tricky business though.


Quite true because, the settings are getting complex, as there are too many parameters. The scene passes by the time we ensure that our camera is set right. We have to wait for the day, where we get USB / bluetooth cameras, that can be operated from a Mini-laptop and the settings are fired instantly.

We can then even program the sequence of pictures to be taken in various custom settings.

Oops... Google $14m contest in the corner..

This is excellent idea for people to meet up and shoot. I believe that photography can be a lot of fun with people. I just bought a Canon 450D before moving to Singapore, but haven't yet had the chance to use it. So if any outings are planned, do let me know. I can be reached at drastogi@gmail.com or 97761393.

Cheers.

Hi All,

Would love to join the next outing and/or meet-up with others who want to shoot, discuss, and improve their photography. Lately I have been playing with some night photography, but my interests are broad. I even thought of offering a “hands-on”

You could also go alone and do some night shooting or hook up with a photo buddy during this month long event.

Nice! Here are a few of mine. Wish I could have found a better location. Shooting through the fence was a drag.

Hi All,

If you are free..feel free to visit the exhibits..

The biennial festival has received nearly 7000 prints from photographers around the world in response to a call for submissions. SIPF has also attracted the presence of 20 of the biggest names in the photography world who will participate as speakers and contributors.

Not sure what turn number... but it was the one where the Ferrari overshot during the last practice on Saturday.. maybe #4 ?? I was using a 70-200mm f2.8, manually focused at apex of turn.. opened up to reduce DOF and try to hide fence. Could have been better... but I got to spot late and was fighting with shooting over people's heads and through fence posts.

Data on each shot is here: http://bigeasytx.zenfolio.com/p934808527

In Vietnam for a week, but would love to get together with others for some local shoots when I return.


Here are a few from a solo shoot I did the other night.

nice series you got there..good thing you didn't overexpose the merlion for its kinda tricky setting on the camera when you are taking that kind of shot. so your're a nikon user? how long have you been into photography?

Yea.. been shooting Nikon and Fuji for a few years... shot a bunch of film, on and off back in the 80's... but never got heavy into it, until digital evolved to a good quality about 3-4 years ago.

Funny you should say that... Merlion was not easy. I didn't have any filters, and as you say the Merlion was way hotter than background. I used my flat-black CF card holder to hand dodge the lion on a long shot.. covered the Merlion in viewfinder an took long exposure while only uncovering lion for a few sec. Took about 5 attempts... but I think it came out well?

Vietnam is a trip... love it! Should have a few good shots upon my return.

Cheers
