at the same time no need to use ISO 1600. Can keep it at ISO 100.
If you just a normal night shoot of the building, can shoot in AV mode (my usual preference) and leave the shutter speed to the cam to decide.
but if u want to try something special, u can do a long exposure (using bulb mode, slow shutter speed), and produce a silky water effect, like this:
both shots done on tripod, ISO kept to 100.
i too would advice ts to use a tripod and keep iso minimal, however, that's just much ya can do handheld since he wants to shoot it that way
It's heavy but looks sturdy. This tripod good enough?
Think really have to bring along tripod when moving around HK.
Definitely come handy when one to take photo of the sea and buildings.
Street shot, I will try to use handheld with ISO not greater than 800 as suggested by brothers here...
for me i usually go for light sturdy tripods cos i can walk for hours and i dun want a heavy tripod on my shoulder giving me back/shoulder ache at the end of the day haha.
if u are using tripod... then u can safely shoot at ISO 100 all the time. just make sure u dun accidentally kick your tripod to cause some shake movements.
have to off IS when on tripod right ?
Yes, you're advise to switch it off..Originally Posted by droozy
