This is insane. You have to watch it even if you're not interested in archery. If you would see this in a hollywood movie you'd think how unrealistic this it... but actually the archery in most hollywood movies is quite lame compared to this ;-)

This photo shows part of the Franz Josef glacial valley with the Franz Josef Glaciar slowly dissapearing in the descending clouds. It was a very atmospheric evening, with deep hanging clouds and some drizzle. Not many people were there, which was a great contrast to the following day when the sun was shining. I really enjoyed photographing the various waterfalls and the valley that evening although there was no spectacular light as I had hoped.

Processing this photo involved my typical workflow + my dreamy photo techniques to control the contrasts and preserve the atmosphere. I show all my techniques in my post processing video tutorials -> "http://mibreit-photo.com/tutorials.html

An oldie from two years ago.. hope in 10 days I will finally be lucky with weather and light again and capture some similar mood. Lately I didn't see many spectacular skies on my photo trips.

A photo from my trip to the Provence back in July. I didn't see many clouds during the two weeks I was in southern france. I also picked some of the hottest days of this summer here in Europe ;-) Anyways the Valensole Plateau is an awesome place. Lavender fields wherever you look and if you get up early you have them mostly for yourself.

I said I wouldn't post more 100% Crops of the 5ds-r for a time. But there was a discussion over at +Olaf Bathke site about it. +Cole Thompson who does some great long exposure photography also bought the 5Ds-R some time back and he found some serious noise issues for exposures of several minutes. See his blog post here:

http://www.photographyblackwhite.com/canon-5dsr-noise-issues/

I also did some long exposure photography on my recent trip to France and my impression was that the 5Ds-R copes very well with long exposures. If shooting less than one or two minutes I never had issues with noise, even without Long Exposure Noise Reduction. Comming from the 5D Mark II I was used to using the LNR for long exposure, because the noise became quite apparent, if I went into the direction between 5 and 10 minutes -> hot pixels everywhere.

Comming from the 5D Mark II I was used to using the LNR for long exposure, because the noise became quite apparent, if I went into the direction between 5 and 10 minutes -> hot pixels everywhere.

Below you see some crops of a photo I took before sunrise in Verdon Canyon (https://500px.com/photo/118144837/verdon-moon-by-michael-breitung). I think it was allready around 20°C and I took two shots between 7 and 8 minutes. One shot I took without LNR turned on (Crops in first row). Because I didn't have much experience with the 5Ds-R I repeated the shot right afterwards with slightly adjusted ISO settings (Crops in second row). This time I had LNR turned on - this basically doubles the time you have to wait for the finished photo to popup up on the back of the camera and if the light is changing fast it's not always an option.

So lets look at the crops:

Upper left: I tried to exposed properly to the right but with the DR of the scene this still gave me some quite dark shadows. Mind I had the moon in the photo and I tried to also keep the bright parts. Without pushing the darks I don't see much noise there, for me this is acceptable for an ISO 200 shot of more than 8 minutes.

Upper middle: same crop with shadows set to + 100 in LR. Nothing else changed. Here you can see some dot noise. No real manifestation of the blue or red hot pixels but still not all too clean. But it's really not that much and I think I could have cleaned this a bit and been ok

Upper right: here's a crop showing some middle tones, also with shadows + 100. I see no issues here.

Lower left: I took this shot directly after the first. I went down with the ISO a bit since it was getting brighter but while taking the exposure I decided to slightly lengthen it since more clouds were crepping in front of the moon. The crop is again with shadows set to + 100 in LR. Here I shot with LNR turned on and this totally eliminates the strange dot noise. For me this looks quite clean.

Lower middle: this is a crop of the final developed photo. I usually end up with a slightly darker shot than what I start with. From raw I try to get as much image info as possible and then I try to recreate the atmosphere as it was. If you look at this crop on a dark background you see the detail there. But mind that this is from the edge of the frame, so you won't get as many details as in the middle at 100% due to restrictions of the lense, which was the Canon 16-35 f/4. Also due to lense correction and some cropping the crop is slightly different than the others.

Lower left: crop of final images for the middle tones.

I will do further tests in the future but my experience till now is that the 5Ds-R will serve me very well.___

The 5DsR is quite capable for long exposures. Here a shot I took at Canyon du Verdon. 9 Minutes exposure at ISO 160

I just love how many details I get from the 5Ds-R even with my older lenses. Here's an example taken with the Canon 70-200 f/4 IS Lense. It was a longtime exposure at f/9.5. The image was presharpened with Nik Presharpener as usual.

I hope I don't bore you too much with the crops. I guess this will be the last one for now ;-)

In my last post I showed you some 100% crops of a Lavender Field I shot with the 5Ds-R. This time I want to give you a real-world example of what this camera is capable of in terms of dynamic range. There was a lot of discussion about this topic, especially since Sony and Nikon have so much exposure latitude in the dark tones. #Canon was never really good at it, the problem were mostly ugly noise patterns showing up when pushing the darktones and also a lot of color noise was present.

I admit the 5Ds-R still can't compete with the Sony Sensor here, but it's a big improvement over the Mark II or Mark III I think. Take this shot here for example. On the left I show a 100% crop of a totally underexposed patch of dark mass from the unprocessed raw. The crop on the right is what I could retrieve without introducing noise. It is also presharpened and part of the finished photo, which involved... more »

I wouldn't need more here for a natural look of the photo.

Thanks to my local camera store (Fotomax Nürnberg) I received a 5DS-R one day before my trip to France three weeks ago. Because of the few R models which were shipped in the beginning I was quite glad to get one.

I'll do some real review sometime in the future when I have used the camera a bit more. But for those interested here's a little close up of a photo I took near Valensole during a nice soft sunrise.

I was using the 16-35mm f/4 here and also applied focus-stacking while shooting at f/11. I have to admitt that f/11 is not the best f-stop for the 5Ds-R. While there was no diffraction when using f/11 on my 5D Mark II on the 5Ds-R the sharpness already drops a bit. To the end of the trip I mostly went with f/9.5. But still, f/11 produced quite some nice details here.

You can also see that while the 16-35 lens is very good in the corners when shot on a 22mpix... more »

But still, f/11 produced quite some nice details here.

You can also see that while the 16-35 lens is very good in the corners when shot on a 22mpix camera, on the 5Ds-R the corners are noticably softer, despite the focus-stacking.

I really had to work very careful with this beast and I also screwed a few shots because of a lot of haze during the trip and some focusing, which wasn't quite perfect. But screwed here means the 100% view isn't perfect. If I size down to say 24mpix the photos looks good again. So it's quite nice having all those mpix :-)

But best is to no screw the shots, than printing at 60'' or 70'' should be no problem.

PS: in case your wondering, the 100% crops have Nik-Presharpener at default settings applied.

I shot this one last December near Moeraki at the famous boulder beach. I was a wonderfull morning and the best light I had during the four weeks in New Zealand. Best was I had all those rocks and all the sweet light for myself.

I still have lots of photos from New Zealand to process. Here is another view from Roys Peak. It was taken on my way back down. You find this location around 150 meters below the real peak. As the last light hit the mountains I had to grab my camera one last time befor continuing my descend.

If you are interested in the post processing behind this photo, please have a look at my tutorials. All the involved techniques are covered there -> http://www.mibreit-photo.com/tutorials.html

This photo shows part of the Franz Josef glacial valley with the Franz Josef Glaciar slowly dissapearing in the descending clouds. It was a very atmospheric evening, with deep hanging clouds and some drizzle. Not many people were there, which was a great contrast to the following day when the sun was shining. I really enjoyed photographing the various waterfalls and the valley that evening although there was no spectacular light as I had hoped.
