I don't normally do video's but did a Slideshow type of thing of the tornado that hit us last week.
I am looking for info on sensor cleaning... I have my Canon 20d and the sensor needs a cleaning, there is no one locally that cleans them and I am thinking I could buy a kit and clean mine.
Yes I am aware of the risk of damaging the sensor but I feel I am capable to get the job done. Anyone clean there sensors? Kit recommendations?
Tornado's are no joke, growing up in SE Nebraska I have seen many and been fortunate enough to have dodged almost all of them.
**knock on wood**
I will do it in a three step process. I'm sure you've already done the air blower though. There is a wet/dry cleaning kit that works very well. They are pricey though. With imagination and youtube all new things are possible lol.
Had a blast Saturday evening doing this photo shoot!

The rest can be viewed here on my flikr
Awesome subjects Gary, what was that for?
The makeup artist needed some portfolio shots of different types of work she can do. Plus thought it sounded fun
Dude! How'd you get these girls to paint themselves up for you?
Was in Arizona in March and decided to go to the Grand Canyon as I and the fiance had never been there before. It is pretty awe-inspiring
This is at my great aunt's house in Mesa:
First time shooting lightning, interesting how difficult this can be. The last pic is washed out but how can you judge what aperture to set when there is no constant? I am ordering a sensor cleaning swab kit as well.
Canon 20d / 17-85mm. Manual, bulb setting with remote, aperture set between 4.5 and 16.
I just did a quick test to see how dirty my sensor is... Wow.
Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab Type 2 (12-Pack)
Visible Dust VDust Plus Formula Solution
Sure it cost $60 for these items and there is a big risk when cleaning the sensor, however my last sensor cleaning in Buffalo NY cost me $55. Sadly no one locally will clean one so this is pretty much my only option.
These are quite shocking!
Who is shooting the moon tonight at 1134pm Eastern?
I was hoping to give it a shot. I'm central though - hopefully I can get a decent shot at the perigee.
Well, it isn't in sight at the moment for me, but it'll be over the hills and trees in a couple minutes and I'll have a go at some photos. Never tried taking shots of the moon yet, should be interesting.
Rather hazy out tonight, although I think I got a few good shots. The wife was kinda pissy because I wanted to take so many pictures. Not sure wtf her deal was.
I'll go through my pics tomorrow and upload some for you guys. I think I got a few good ones, although exposure was kinda tricky. Took so many pics because I was trying to play with the different camera settings to see what worked best.
10:34pm the moon perigee
After the perigee and the clouds rolling through.
Canon 20d, Canon 70x200mm with a 2x multi.
I was doing the same, I was trying with and without this "star filter", in addition to playing around with different settings. i think this was roughly the best I could manage:
Sony A300 with Tokina 75-300mm f4.5-5.6
hi guys, ive been shooting film for as long as i could hold a camera. finally got a digital camera after developing film, scanning, storing photos became such a big hassle. shooting with the canon sx40hs and i have to say for a budget dslr this is a very nice camera. the lens is phenomenal and the color is what you get from the $1000 models.
anyway, i shoot everything, but sometimes i like to shoot pictures for my desktop wallpaper. here are a few 16:9 shots that are uncompressed if you want to use them.
i got rid of the embed as it was killing my server for bandwidth lol.
dam steve, you's a man of talents... seems like we have more than movies in common! Wish you were closer a photog day out would be a blast w/you
Ok, here's what I got last night. Like I said, it was kinda hazy:
So I played around with the settings and tried a few (ok, a lot):
It was difficult to get shots with less zoom, due to not having something to focus on.
And the wife and my 14yo daughter with our telescope:
My wife and I have been Messier hunting lately and having a blast at it! Telescopes are great ways to spend time with the family imo
what zoom were you using?
I am going to give it another shot tonight if it's clear out and try over exposing a little.
overcast all night here. too bad, i would love to give the 32x optical zoom a shot a shooting the moon.
I have a Panasonic FZ40 with 24x zoom:
Panasonic DMC-FZ40K Black 14.1MP 3.0" 230K LCD 24X...
I had it maxed out.
