Default Moon Shot

Just thought I'd see what I could do with a moonshot with the K5 and the Sigma 50-500. I was impressed.



Handheld at 500mm...1/400....f/16....ISO 2000.

That is a very nice, clear shot. Well done and hand held! I thought soccer players didn't know how to use their hands! When I first saw it I was sure there was a tripod involved. Good work

LOL Glen, it would have sounded weird had I said "footheld."

Credit the K5, not me.....really a remarkable camera. A handheld is easy when you can get your shutter up to 1/400. Especially when you can, by using ISO 2000, go to f/16. I get more impressed every time I shoot with it.

Great shot Paul, Thanks for the head start with the settings now all I need is a longer lens

That is a nice sharp picture. It has a slightly red colour. I don't know if this
is due to WB settings or atmospheric conditions. I think it would look even
better in black & white.

Outstanding, Paul!
I think that's better than any I've taken even with a tripod.
