  • Trip Report 02/09/13 Trip Report.... Premium AP about to expire.... new 28mm prime

    So my PAP is about to expire in a week or so, not sure if I will renew as prices have gone up substantially and the park seems busy as ever.... I probably used it at most 10 times this year in comparison to other years when it was used 30+ times. Just got a 28mm 1.8 prime and wanted to give it a whirl.....

        WOW! These are amazing! It's not too often you see wide angle shots in dark rides. These are really cool!

          What settings did you use to take the bride auction photo? Every time I try all I get is a red blob, but your photo is amazing!

                    Most dark ride shots were at 1/100 f2.0 ISO6400, exposure compensation +1 shot with a 5D Mark III. The ISO performance on this camera is amazing.

                      I would tend to agree with you from the looks of these pictures. Wow...

                        What lens do you use? Generally to get shots in the dark, you want to use the biggest aperture you can go on you lens (which means low aperture number i.e. f/1.8), a relatively fast shutter speed, and use a higher ISO to increase your camera's sensitivity.

                        Amazing photos, thank you!
                        Same as above. Use your widest aperture setting, relatively fast shutter speed, and higher ISO. I'm assuming you're using a 30mm f/1.8? Set your aperture to f/1.8 to really widen your lens and to maximize the amount of light you'll be able to let in to your camera.

                        WOW, that's ISO 6400? You barely have any noise in your photos! That's incredible! I wish my D80 could do that

                          No problem! I forgot to mention one thing. When you use a wider aperture, you also create a shallow depth of field, so focusing is a little bit trickier. You have to make sure that your subject is in focus. It takes some practice. Don't be afraid to shoot multiple times!

                            The newer CMOS sensors are just amazing. I upgraded from a D50 (which took amazing pictures) to a D5100 (which has Sony's simply amazing Cmos sensor in it (it's the same one in the D7000). And the high ISO levels are silly clean.
                            Years ago (when I bought my D50), CMOS was considered inferior to CCD for noise reasons... now CMOS has leapfrogged over CCD. Put some fast glass in front of them and it's mind blowing how good of shots you can now get.

                            But... nice thing is you own the glass with your D80... look around at places like Cameta Camera (I highly recommend), B&H, and Adorama who sell Nikon Factory Refurbs of bodies for half price or less of new (and they're like-new condition, with a factory Nikon-USA warranty). It's a great way to upgrade for a fraction of the price of new... (and for the record my "refurb" D5100 had a total of 135 shots taken with it...).

                            Now also remember, the 5D Mark III is a "full frame" sensor... it takes in a TON of light compared to prosumer level cameras... but the newer sensors still are better than they were just a few years ago.

                              Wow. You've got the hang of dark-rides! I need more practice.

                              You got a used camera with 135 shots run through it? Heck, I do that in a couple of hours when I take it out to shoot. That's amazing.
