Exit Light, Enter Night

surf-cat This is a line from one of my favourite Metallica songs. Obviously they didn’t have a 5D mark II. This show that it doesn’t get dark after the sun goes down, you just need to be able to see in the dark. This camera does. The stats, iso 800, f5, 13 seconds. Little to no noise in the RAW image. Depth of field suffered a little with that aperture but the overall effect is good. Helped along by the moonlight. The white spots are stars. Live view was perfect for focusing on the surf cat. I love this camera!!!

  1. Amazing image! The light is unreal! It has almost a old hollywood studio effect on it. What a great camera indeed. Love the silkiness of the water.

  2. Christian, stunning take, the light is magic.

    How long after sunset did you take this shot?

  3. Nice….you can cleary sse the glare from the light’s of Bunbury,

    What would the 1d have made of this shot?

  4. wow long exposure at iso 800 that came out awesome, nice one.

  5. Nice work Christian. Obviously I’d get the same shot on the MkIII with F16, iso 50 and 1 sec, but the 5D is definitely catching up. πŸ˜‰ Yes Live View rocks for low light situations.
