    Low Light Goodness

    The low light lens I'm using (Canon 50mm f/1.2) for my Rebel XT sometimes does amazing things, and I needed a place to share these photos every week.

    Photobucket to the rescue! (click to see larger version)



    Does anyone else have low-light photos to share?

    Wow. Not only is it a great shot, but the detail on it came out really well. Do you have more of them Kevin?

    Nicely done. Taking good photos in low light is tough!

    Re: Low Light Goodness

    whoa. that's a great pic. I have a Cannon Rebel.....not digital. It was on sale, and I wanted it for my pictures I take for competitions. Hubby tried to talk me into a regular digital, I swore I'd never want one...and he bought it for me. A year later....I bought a regular Cannon digital.


    So, here's my question for all you camera experts...can I take the same pictures you take with my regular Cannon Rebel?

    Re: Low Light Goodness

    one of the cameras in my household is cannon point and shoot and it doesn't do too bad., the other is cannon digital rebel xti and currently we have three lenses. One is the low lilght lense. I have to admit, I am truly amazed with the pictures that can come from that lense. now If I can only figure out how to take clearer pictures while the ride is moving.

    Chris,

    Manual mode.
    set shutter speed to 30
    set ISO to 1600
    set f-stop to 1.2 (or your lowest possible number)

    Then, gulp hard, and set the lens to manual focus, not auto-focus.

    Now ride the ride ten times, snapping photos almost nonstop, twisting the lens slightly between each to adjust focus, since you can't tell if it's really in focus or not.

    Get home, throw away 90% of the shots, and keep the best.

    Then, repeat on your next visit, only change one factor: the shutter speed. Bring it to 15 or even 10 for a slow moving ride. Bring it to 45 or 60 for a very fast ride.
