Last Wednesday I took Oscar with me to my Zumba class … to try out the night scene mode and test his ability, during my walk home. The shots are supposed to be stable as when using a tripod – have never used a tripod outdoor. I were all excited. I have about 10 min walk home – and I didn’t use the flash in any of the shots.
This is how Canon explains “Handheld Night Scene”: the camera takes several exposures and combines them into a single photo. The PowerShot SX50 HS, allows the flash to fire in the Handheld Night Scene mode.
My favorite shots is the roundabout shot and the florist shop shows how great the 24-1200mm lens is, I’m standing on the other side of the street. I could have focused a bit better on the second shot.
But it take brilliant night shots on Autofocus too – sometimes even better – can’t wait to be able to bring the camera with me to Istanbul in May and down to the waterfront, to take some scenery night photos of the city. Our hotel is only 5 min walk away from the seafront.
This evening is it time for Zumba again, but Oscar isn’t coming with me.
