I live in the norther burbs of Melbourne.
About an hour ago I was out in the front garden having a smoke when I saw a bright but tiney light in the sky - like a star but in day time. I rushed
inside and grabbed my camers.
Coincidence - I got a new camera and lense yesterday, it is a Sony Aplha A580 with a Tamron 18-270mm PZD zoom. Brilliant bit of kit.
I grabbed the camera and put it onto Aperture priority end set the exposure compensation to -2 stops. Set the Apperture to about F7 to F9 to try and
maintian the best sharpness. I knew in such bright light the camera would automatically select ISO100 and the camera was already set to Large Fine
files. So I knoew I would get the best possible immages. Luckilyy the A580 has built in anti shake, so I could do this hand held just leaning on a
Got some fabulous shots!
There are a lot of them as I was shooting a 5 frames per second as I did not want to miss anything.
Where can I upload the origional immages to? They are 3.8 to 4.5 Mb each.
I will also crop some at 100% and 200%.
What else should I do?
ETA - The light was to my SSW at first travelking due west. Pics soon!
