Brisbane Storey Bridge
Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Brisbane, Australia 
Posted By: cmohr, 04-13-2012, 08:29 PM

I was mucking around the other day in Brisbane, here's a few I took, I just had it on auto white balance, its kind of funny just how much the camera adjusts between shots, as in the last two pics are only seconds apart and have almost the same exposures so the camera must have changed its WB between the shots.

I was also very impressed with the SR on the K-5 as with the shot taken on the walkway of the bridge, It was hand held and 1.3 seconds, actually, all these shots were handheld as I had left the tripod in the car, D'oh.

handheld at 1.3, you must be steady as a rock. As you said the WB does change easily with each shot. I have taken several lightning shots with auto WB and I get some fantastic colors. All great shots here, TFS, Bob

Thanks Bob, I was impressed at 1.3 seconds just how sharp the centre is, you can see the blurr in the corners of the pic, the very next picture on the walkway is just a total blur tho, the last two were still 1 sec exposures as well, so maybe I'm getting my steady back..trust me, I had begun to believe I had lost it.

I'm kinda happy with the differences in the WB that happens too, as you get different versions of basically the same picture without having to go into PP and play around. Nice surprises, yes.

Thanks for looking

Hand held at 1.3? I am impressed. I struggle to avoid blur at 1/8. I like the second shot.

Well, maybe not steel. Aluminum or carbon fiber and with three legs.
