post #23051 of 29551
Hey guys I have a Canon T2i and I just got done hacking the firmware with Magic Lantern. I was wondering whats some good settings to take pic's of the stars? I'm looking to make arc's with a object up front.
I have the following:
Canon T2i ML Firmware
Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens
Carbon Fiber tripod.

This pic is my first attempt

star trails

youd want to take a lot of 30sec(?) exposures then stack them up in photoshop or something to make a startrail photo afaik
or use a remote then have it take a photo for 30-120 mins

Ok thanks, does GIMP work for this?

Once it gets above 30f here and stops snowing, I will try it out look like ISO 100-200 and F/wide as she gets.

I'm going to try out ML Intervalometer, Settings (in submenu):

Duration between two shots.
Start delay (up to 8 hours).
Stop after X pictures.
This should make it pretty easy. thumb.gif

assuming that you want to make star trails? You will need to make multiple long excuses and stack them together. You can run hours on a single exposure but the noise would get pretty bad.

Turn off any in camera noise reduction as generally for a 30 sec exposure it can take up to 30 sec for the camera to process for noise. You don't want those gaps.

Hey guys I'm new to photography but always wanted to do it for a hobby. I made my first purchase, the T4i and I really love it. I was recording video with it but for some reason I'm not satisfied with the quality. I feel like it could come out way better. I provided a link to it for those who wouldn't mind checking it. Another question is can other lenses increase video quality?

Wood duck and a Red-shouldered hawk. Not the sharpest, but not bad for a full crop on a $142 lens on a crop sensor. 2nd is at about 400 feet.
