Went to LPR today and saw this creature in the forest just before it rained.
Can anyone help to ID it? Thanks!!

Photo captured at ISO 6400 as it was super dark then.

It's a Colugo or flying lemur.

Barely make it lor.. I wonder how i managed to spot it when it is just a silhouette against the tree and it didn't move at all. But today was really a disappointing trip at LPR

U can still take a very well exposed and low noise pic, you can even go to as low as ISO 200 even, if you know long lens technique , and u still can achieve very sharp results. A colugo is very easy to take as it do not move, or much in the daylight.

Hi knpan, do you mean using a tripod and setting to long exposure time?
I up to ISO6400 as it was rather dark and i can't even see what is there on the tree except knowing something is there.

Can share with me what is this long lens technique if it is not what i have stated above, so i can improve on my skills? Thanks!!!

Good tripod is a must if you want sharp images in low light. Bumping ISO too high will also lost details. Different body have different limits. Know your gears, and work within the limits. I had even shot a black back kingfisher in almost total darkness without flash. Exposure was 30 seconds at ISO 400 f8.

Long lens technique can easily be found on nature forum. Just google for it. Take is as a guide and develope a style to suit you. Not every technique works for everyone.

Thanks DeSwitch for sharing. I will do a google search for it :)


Deswitch answered u above, wat I can add is, actually even a cheap lousy tripod will still help u get sharp pictures. Lets say this amount of wind might not shake your image with a solid sturdy tripod, but if you are using a non stable tripod at that time your images will be blurred, it is about proper technique to get it sharp. Once there is no wind, it is how your skills bring out your final output , either blurred or sharp.
Thanks knpan for the advice. I am saving to get a good tripod
