This week, we address a couple of the back catalogue of e-mails that we’ve been trying to get to (for weeks, it seems!),
and then on to a discussion of the pros and cons of both APS-C sized sensors and 35mm sensors.
Is this shaping up to be the new “megapixel race”?

Twenty20 Celebrity cricket match

Filed under: Available light,Focal length,Panorama,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 22:34

Tonight, Cath, Max and I went to the Twenty20 Celebrity cricket match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which was held as a fundraiser for victims of the Victorian bushfires.
This is a panorama I shot.
For those who are interested, it was 7 RAW images, shot in portrait mode at approximately 40mm focal length (even though I could have zoomed out to 18mm, the longer focal length reduces the perspective distortion).
