Tall ship

Postby ex campbeltown lady » Tue May 29, 2012 7:59 pm

Its long past now but when we were in Campbeltown last week we saw the tall ship "Stavros S Niarchos" just off Davaar and tried a shot but it was too distant so i tried this:- binoculars with digital camera up to eye piece and what a surprise - crystal clear close up picture to behold. Any points for ingenuity ?

Original at max zoom

With 10x binocular plus camera zoom.

Nothing special but so surprised at outcome.

Nothing special ? That's ever so nice, with the black framing it as well, it has a certain charm. I would never have thought of doing that but the next time I'm out and about I will have a go at taking a pic through binoculars.
Full marks and a gold star for ingenuity.
Ouch !

Glad you liked it Martin. If you do ever try it you will need a very steady hand or sturdy platform due to the camera shake at this zoom level is exaggerated. I should also mention switch off the auto focus or you will get blurred photos as the camera will try to focus on the binocular lens and not the distant object. I found out by trial and lots of error :?
