  • Night photography

    I have been toying now for a few weeks with night photography.

    I have gone from completely black images to white images to just about visible blurry images.

    I have now pretty much got the settings sorted but my images contain quite a few blue, red and green pixels.

    I am using a 35 second exposure which appears to be bringing out nice detail.

    Any idea on the pretty coloured pixels or how to eradicate them. Too many to clone out.
    Thanks
    Tim

        I am sure the E500 did??? but can't remember for sure. What I do recall, and can show you, are examples of longer exposure shots crawling with noise from the E500.

            Shooting in raw and controlling exposure should help. I am still a newbie to photography and the E500 was my first dslr

                The E400 does have NR
                Limit the ISO to 200
                Set to manual
                Aperture fully open
                Increase exposure by 5sec

                Then you will get an idea of your best exposure...

                    Stick at 100 ISO and give Noise Reduction a go (it's designed specifically for longer exposures and should not be confused with the Noise Filter).

                      Whilst not forgetting Oylmpus Viewer for RAW work have a look at RawTherapee ( http://rawtherapee.com/blog/features ).

                      It's very high quality freeware which is constantly and, IMHO, very professionally under development and improvment. I used to use it before I went fully Adobe and the newer versions look very good indeed.

                      cheers

                      I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.
