Thread: Possum Moon

    Possum Moon

    So its early spring in Australia, the large old English Oak in our back yard is starting to come to life with new foliage emerging.... and with that comes our neighborhood possum to feed on the fresh new buds (and poo all over the yard)
    Quite amazed at what this camera can capture
    A7RII, f2.8 24-70GM lens @ 70mm, 1/60th, ISO 51200

    A7RII and a couple of GM lenses to play with (loving it)
    Some older Pentax-mount lenses
    GoPro's (HD1's, 2, 4-black)
    Iphone - hey.. its always there!

    Work: way too many cameras/lenses (mainly Canon) to deal with, so it was worth buying the Metabones 4.

    That's a hard shot to get...backlit.
    Seems it works just fine though....not as much noise in the photo as I would expect to see either. Well done!

    I like it, so its a hands up from me.
    We had them around our place to and we would watch them doing the walk along the power lines.
    And then into our palm tree's to get the fruit.
    But they can be so noisy but still are quite nice to look at.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.

    cheers Scott. Any auto/semi-auto mode wouldn't get it, had to go everything manual.
    While there's still quite a bit of noise in the image, the fact that it could still get some fine fur detail against the moonlight is what amazed me.
    Very happy with this toy.... but not the possum poo.

    Gramps, I don't find them noisy, just they set off the dog barking (see avatar) and she thinks the poo droppings are lollys from heaven....
