Cwm Idwal Astrophotography with Canon EOS 6D
Share this –
I managed to get out to Cwm Idwal tonight – considering that Mud and Routes has acquired a spanking new Canon EOS 6d full frame camera. It was a lot of playing about, learning the ropes, but managed to be seriously impressed with this bit of kit!
The image below was taken in the gloaming, hand held at ISO 26,000. There’s noise in there, but the scope for wild camping photography is limitless.
Of course, it’s the sky we came to photograph, and after it looked like clouding over, it cleared.
Always room for a few selfies – but the ‘coma’ on the images may mean that the Tokina 11-16mm may well not be up to the job of full frame photography.
Tried a bit of tracking….. Another hand held image at seriously high ISO.
Eventually time to leave..
But time for a final shot of some lucky beggars off for a wild camp with Tryfan in the background!
