London Night Shoot With A Point & Shoot ~ February/March 2017

London Night Shoot With A Point & Shoot ~ February/March 2017

I didn’t think my usual technique for hand holding/low shutter speed/low ISO night shooting would apply to using my Sony Cyber-shot RX1RMII as the camera and lens do not have built in stabilisation. Reviews of the camera say that hand holding at low shutter speeds are not advisable, challenge accepted, and went a bimbling in the dark around the central London touristy spots to see what I could come up with. Only real downside to the camera is the battery. It’s small and doesn’t last very long, around 120 images in the real world is quoted, although I had been shooting in very cold conditions and that doesn’t help battery life and using uncompressed RAW the file size goes from approximately 41Mb to 81Mb which was eating up battery power and card space as well.

 

Taken over several visits as it kept raining, even though it wasn’t forecast. Some on tripod, some hand held using walls, lampposts, bollards and other street furniture to support the camera for low shutter speed shots, some RAW, some Jpeg
