After a minor embarrassment of posting this in the K5IIs thread by mistake, here it is again, originally cross posted from Nik free download thread.


Just tried my new free Nik software out on a shot from St Augustine trip. The Silver Effects plugin is cool... this is the High Contrast High Structure I think they called it.


Good old K5 Classic, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 @ ISO 80, 50mm, 320th, F7.1, handheld and I just put it on motor drive and counted off the 5 second canon fuse and laid on the shutter.


The funny thing is, the first frame got the shot, and all the subsequent shots were too late. Go figure...


For what it's worth, I notice that a lot with the motor drive. I have much better keeper rate if I use my eyes and ears to catch the shot, rather than put on the motor drive and spray and pray. Spray & pray usually gets me the nose or tail of the object I'm trying to get in the frame.

Fun stuff!
Eric

It is, but actually I am already selling it again. Not because of the lens, but because I like Olympus / Micro Four Thirds more (EVF, Lens selection, Quality-size ratio)
