About this photo:
Camera: Canon PowerShot G3 X
Exposure Time: 1/125
I use a G9 as my underwater camera & have for years. It's in the Canon housing firing a pair of old Sea & Sea strobes which are triggered by fiber optic cables seeing the built in flash, and requires shooting in manual. This is from this years trip to Cozumel, shot in RAW & processed in Photoshop. G9, ISO 80, f2.8 and at 7.4 mm
Camera: Canon PowerShot SX150 IS, Av: f/5.6, Tv: 1/320, ISO: 80
This turtle was rescued by animal control just after I got this shot. Someone else spotted it before me and was able to get help for this turtle. Luckily I was able to keep a loose dog away from it long enough for the rescue.
Hi, TT Martin. Nice shot. I have been considering purchasing the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens. Do you like the lens. Was it worth the purchase? Thanks!
Thank you for the compliment. I do like the lens. I was using a much heavier Sigma lens before, so the weight change alone is wonderful. I think the image quality is outstanding even when using it with a 1.4X TC III But, using a 1.4XTC with it needs a camera that will focus at f/8. I do think it was worth it. I got a good deal using the Canon price watch website. It has made my photography more enjoyable both while out shooting and with the results.
