Its a long way to the beach

This image, for me, sums up how far camera technology has come, even in the recent years the advances in dynamic lighting and increased dynamic range still blows me away. Now, if only they could get rid of those flare spots 😉

Single image, pretty well straight outta the camera

  1. Pretty muted as far as lens flare goes and it does line up nicely with the footprints. Nicely done mate.
    I remember the horrendous lens flare I used to cop with my 18-55mm kit lens on the 500D. Had to always work out a way to include it in the comp 😜

  2. Nice shot and great mood +Gerard Blacklock​​! You're right, I've been blown away by the dynamic range capability and the sensor's latitude at the time of the release of the Pentax K-5, I can imagine how well performs the newer sensor of the D750 😉
    About the flares… I usually take a second shot covering the sun with a thumb, the I overlap and mask the two shots in postprocessing. Don't know if there's something better…

  3. +Tom Testone​, as far as I know an optical design free from flares doesn't exist. The only thing that can mitigate this effect is the multi coating applied on the lenses. For example the Pentax HD multicoating performs fantastically, I've shot multiple times in the sun with the new 20-40 Limited without any trace of flare, while the Samyang 16 struggles in any case (both with the sun in the frame and a bit out of the frame). This is just an example because I'm a Pentax shooter and I'm reporting my personal experience.
