330th Show & Tell Competition: Expanding your in-camera capabilities

Post Thu Aug 14, 2014 1:16 am


I've been amazed at how much the modern digital cameras enable you to take photos under conditions that were previously inaccessible. The biggest feature, to me, is being able to shoot at high ISOs, and thus under low light conditions that were unimaginable even a few years ago.

Let's see your shots that your digital camera allows you to take, that you previously couldn't with film or an early digital camera. Some Photoshopping/Lightrooming is fine, but the image should be primarily about what you can only now do with the instrument. High ISO shots are just an example. For example:

ISO 12,800
Image

ISO6400
Image

ISO3200

Submissions will be closed on Thursday the 21st of August 2014 at 1:16:27 UTC

1. Photos must be hosted on pbase.com
2. Maximum of 3 photos per contest.
3. Photos must be embedded in your post. See the following link for how to do this http://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?t=18022
4. Post only medium versions of your picture using the PB-Image button

Winning and Running a Contest
1. If you enter the Show and Tell Contest, please note the closing date and be sure to check back to see if you won.
2. If you win the Show and Tell Contest and cannot run the next one, please notify the person running the contest immediately, so they can notify the second place winner.
3. If you decide to run the next contest, please post the new contest within 24 hours.
4. When the contest ends, please post the winners within 24-48 hours. (If you keep an eye on entries during the week, you will have a good idea of your favorites by the time the contest ends, and be able to more quickly post your winners.)
5. If you know you will not be able to post a contest, judge it, and post winners, within these timeframes, please do not start one. Instead, notify the person running the contest, so they can pass it on to the second place winner.

330th Show & Tell Competition: Expanding your in-camera capabilities

Interesting! (though such are the capabilities of my camera I very rarely shoot above 400 for fear of increased noise and lack of sharpness)

Shot inside the hotel at Kings Cross St Pancras in London at ISO 400



The best thing about being able to up the ISO though is the ability to increase the shutter speed to capture movement in fast moving objects. My series of toucan shots at the Iguassu Falls came out sharp because I left the camera on ISO400 but this one was still able to be blown up enough to cover a double page spread in a travel magazine



Not sure if this one fits or not as it works in the opposite way to ISO, but one of the things I love most is how you can use an ND filter to get a longer shutter speed in daylight. This one lasted six seconds and captures the hustle and bustle of a London street market.

Here the autofocus was amazing. Could've never caught this action with my old film camera...


would've never dreamt of taking this funky cigar pic with any earlier camera...8000 ISO and no grain


another low light image that required both superb autofocus and good ISO capabilities...

The pictures were taken during the World Choir Games - Cincinnati 2012
I learned to push ISO and that a D700 has a very loud shutter sound with quality acoustics.

It's not a good picture really, but I was very impressed that I was able to capture the Orion Nebula at all with just my 7D and a 300mm lens from a hotel balcony in Costa Rica. ISO is at 12800, so I could keep the exposure time at only 3 seconds to prevent too much streaking.


One of the first pictures I took with my 7D, which was such an improved in low light over my previous camera (Konica Minolta 5D).

The dump truck is driving in front of an asphalt grinding machine while the grindings pour into the truck from a conveyor belt. I never would have been able to capture this with anything less capable than a new DSLR.


The competition was held in an old indoor arena. The lighting was dim, strangely tinted florescent lighting of some kind and the dog and handler teams were moving quickly. A high ISO setting and the rapid shooting capability of a DSLR allowed me to capture this image.


High ISO allowed photographing night time construction work without flash.
