I cant make me mind up whether I like todays photo or yesterdays photo best.


Comment by mick on 2nd October 2013 at 04:25
Its nearly the same photo


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 2nd October 2013 at 05:02
Snap!


Comment by Garry on 2nd October 2013 at 07:25
I thought it was still Tuesday, when I saw this pic again...why is it on twice?...only three guns have gone off.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 2nd October 2013 at 07:52
Hahaha - so that's why David was lying on the floor at the side of me :)

I love the low angle!


Comment by Garry on 2nd October 2013 at 09:15
Yes Dave Oy, and with his camera in his hand. You know it dosen't matter what make of camera you use today, they all take the same good quality pics.


Comment by David on 2nd October 2013 at 09:29
Lol, the chances of catching the same two guns going off when things are happening that fast must be small.


Comment by Ron D on 2nd October 2013 at 09:43
Two-one. Target men with glass fronted black boxes. Drop fifty .Right thirty
FIRE!


Comment by David on 2nd October 2013 at 16:43
Two very different cameras - the results - I don't thing there is much in it!


Comment by Neil Rigby on 2nd October 2013 at 18:25
David, the camera Canon PowerShot SX240 HS has a mode 'High-speed Burst HQ' to capture 'the moment'. Of course I don't know if it was used in the case. Here is some advertising blurb about the camera:-

In High-speed Burst HQ mode the PowerShot SX240 HS can shoot up to 10 full resolution images with a speed of 10.3 shots per second, so whether you’re shooting sports events or everyday life in motion you will never miss a moment of the action.


Comment by Garry on 2nd October 2013 at 18:58
David, in my opinion (for what its worth) this one is much better than yesterdays. Yesterdays looks too colourful (doctored) even.


Comment by David on 2nd October 2013 at 20:42
There are too many Davids. I'm the one who took the photo and that's my comment at 09:15 :)
Thanks Oy. Being able to get down low is one of the things I like about using a screen for composition. Of coarse I'd have been struggling had we not been in the shade.
Thanks Garry. I enjoy using my little SX240 but I am saving up for something a bit faster and with better dynamic range. In high contrast scenes like this one I have to deliberately underexpose the shot to save the highlights then bring up the shadows later in my editor on my PC.
Neil, I didn't use the High-speed Burst mode for this shot. I used the Continuous Shooting drive mode which gives something like 2 frames per second for as long as I need it. The High-speed Burst mode takes a while for the camera to write the the 10 shots to the memory card so if I'd have started shooting to early I may not have had a chance to try again.
