Cincinnati Aquarium
Lens: Pentax M 50mm Camera: K20D 
Posted By: Bobr99, 06-26-2010, 02:08 PM

Just picked up a K20D from Metungnasi. Took it down to the Cincinnati Aquarium to test it out (it was raining on my off day). Worked pretty good! But shooting under those dark conditions with fish moving around isn't easy!

Here are a few that I thought came out pretty good.

All shot with K20D hand held. Most with Pentax M 50mm lens. ISO was around 2000, with shutter speeds around 1/80. Fstop was between 2 and 4. No flash.

All shot with Catch in Focus.

Jellyfish were a little easier than the fish.

Thanks for looking all CC welcome!!!

The fourth is great- it came out sharp and has some very strong complimentary colors.
