    Impressive. Clouds as a background makes it even more interesting.

    This is a cool shot. I bet it was fun - or maybe it was wet - to make this.

    How did you get such a fast exposure?

  11. jciv 86 months ago | reply

    Thanks everyone.

    This all came from trying to replicate a shot I did with my Canon S2 IS. That camera has a lot more manual settings so I was able to do it without too much effort in bright sunlight.

    Since it isn't possible to set the shutter speed on the SD800, I needed to figure out how to force it. I tried a bunch of these with flash first but that gives a different look and still wasn't quite fast enough with the little sun light I had.

    I turn the exposure down so the camera doesn't expect as much light and will use a faster shutter speed. But you loose DOF that way and shooting at moving water inches from the camera is difficult enough when you have a wide DOF. Most shots were no good because the focus wasn't good enough.

    Finally I had a bright enough day to try without a flash. The sun was behind a cloud so I shot into the bright spot in the cloud giving me tons of light. Even then I think I used ISO 400.

    You might also like this unusual water shot I did with the SD800.

    I like how the water droplet takes on the form of a cloud.

    Thanks for all the tech info. I want to get a DSLR someday, but in the meantime I'm trying to do everything I can with the SD800 IS. :)
