or actually no juice and a severe lack of MIPs too!. Twelve hour round trip to the Rivers of Steel "Hardhat" "Tour" of the Carrie Furnaces in Rankin, PA. Not really a tour (good), no hardhats for the touristas (not an issue) and no batteries for the MIPless snapper. Yep, 4+ hours out there, get all strapped up, cameras hooked up, hit the on switch switch and nothing, absolutely nothing, perhaps because the batteries were 4+ hours away in Charm City. Serious MIP shortage.
I did manage to toss the XZ-1 in the bag and it had power and a backup and fellow snapper (who did the driving) had a backup body, a rather long in the tooth, 10D (ca 2003). So I guess we shall see what trumps what, equipment or the artiste. 10D high noise at high ISO (800 for the indoors shots) might present some challenges, it was dark inside the furnaces. I suspect most of these will wind up in B&W.
I can see why Tim rarely uses the handmedown 10D anymore. It is slow, really slow and the buffer even fills up writing RAWS to a fast card after a couple of fast bracketed shots. Five years is a long time in camera technology.
Three shot bracket, 10D, 70-20 f/2.8 IS, ISO 800, f/2.8, bracketed off 1/125 @ 70mm. HDR Efex & Silver Efex Pro 2.
Three shot bracket, 10D, 70-20 f/2.8 IS, ISO 800, f/2.8, bracketed off 1/30 @ 70mm — saved by IS. HDR Efex. Looks like some color might work.
No HDR here, just one shot with 10D, 70-20 f/2.8 IS, ISO 800, f/2.8, bracketed off 1/15 @ 70mm. Hit with Color Efex Midnight Filter.
Three shot bracket, 10D, 70-20 f/2.8 IS, ISO 100, f/2.8, bracketed off 1/2000 @ 70mm. HDR Efex. No problem outside at all.
Single shot, ISO set wrong at 3200 from prior indoor shot. Actually looks pretty good with high ISO in decent light. 24-70 f/2.8L @ 24mm, 1/500.
