After charging the batteries of the new Canon SX50HS camera that I purchesed for my wife, I went out to our nearby park to do a bit of practise.

 

It goes without saying that certain settings still need to be fine-tuned. Besides the landscape shots, the majority were taken at a focal length of 1200mm!

Unless you put some sort of lens modifier in front of the camera, you're still shooting with a maximum focal length of 215mm.

I noticed that when viewing properties. The lens modifier must be built inside the camera as I can describe the zoom effectiveness with one word, "stunning"!

 

Anyway, though tempted to use it, I shall refrain from doing so as I ultimately did purchase it on behalf of my wife.

 

Now where did I leave my Nikon gear...

 

:rolleyes:

No - he's 'shooting with' a focal length of 1200mm

 

Specifically: 4.3-215mm  - but with a 1/2.3-inch sensor you shoot with 24-1200mm.

 

 

 

By the way Herman they're cracking' shots.

Sorry, but 215mm is 215mm all day long.

 

If I took a shot with a 200mm lens and cropped it down to 50% in post, I don't claim to be using a 400mm.  The fact that the same thing happens in the camera doesn't magically make the lens a 1200mm.

 

To be technical, he's 'shooting with a full-frame (35mm film) equivilant field of view of 1200mm'.

We're going to have to disagree on this one because its a single unit - camera/sensor/lens - so actual focal lengths are irrelevant and equivalent ones are the only ones that matter.

Will now take a break and give her quality time with her new toy!

Herman -- it this in the Netherlands?? You still have leaves?? Most of the leaves have fallen here. Superb shots!!! @BP -- Agreed. We've shot with 35x24 for so long, equivalents give us a sense of distance to the subject. Otherwise we're stating it as "Xmm on a Ymm x Zmm sensor" which is awkward. Don

Edited by justshootit, 19 November 2013 - 02:54 PM.

Don
==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Yes, Don!  All shots here. Must say that with the cold weather prevailing it won't be long before the last leaves hit the dirt...

Thanks Art, I agree... absolute bargain!

 

The C-brand even credited me with a cash-back amount too! They were so glad I purchased it (for my wife of course)...

Encountered this Short-toed Treecreeper in our garden this morning...

 

Not the best shot but at least it gives an idea of this for here quite scarse species.

 

Settings: Shutter-speed 1/15sec, focal length 1200mm, ISO-800 (handheld)
