When I'm doing night shots I usually crank the ISO to maximum and use Live View with exposure simulation on to at least let me see some shadows, then I use the 5x or 10x zoom on the screen to manually focus. Then drop the ISO back down to a reasonable level.

    Anyways, here's my contribution for the day. Went dirt biking for 4 or so hours today in the rain... managed to get a couple shots in between all the puddle hunting.

    Huh. I used live view and zoomed in to try to manually focus, but it was just too dark to see anything. I never even thought to raise the ISO just for focusing. I have to shoot at night quite often so I'll give that a try. Thanks!

    Hey, that's a great shot. I'm not usually a fish eye fan, but it totally works here. Really emphasizes the altitude.

    No worries! You get some pretty horrendous noise but it's usually enough that you can pick out a shadow or two to focus on. Another cool thing you can do is to use really high ISO shots to help you initially frame your shot. Gets kinda old taking 20-30 second exposures and then reframing. If I crank the iso to 50-100k I can usually get away with around a second exposure time and then settle it back down once I have the shot framed how I like it.

    Thanks! Ended up flat on my stomach sticking the camera off the edge. Looooooong way down.

    A most uncoorperative subject

    This was my Mother's dog. I took her shortly before my Mom passed away just over a year ago.

    The sound of the Rebel T5i scares the crap out of her. I'm guessing there is some ultrasonic noise the camera emits. As soon as I power it up, she runs off - especially indoors.

    I have been trying to get a decent shot for a couple of months. Here is the best yet, as I was testing the new CP filter I just got.

    Most higher end lenses use ultrasonic motors in their focusing mechanism.

    I imagine the dog can hear the flash charge. That's usually very high pitched...I can hear it.
