Sigma fp blog photos_0006

ISO 500; f18 at 1/50 sec. Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 L mount lens – Remote capture of a Piper Cub flying over Lake Butte des Morts using the built-in intervalometer. I find the advantage of this type of remote photography is that I don’t have to hard-wire the camera to fire, or add the bulk of an IR or radio remote receiver. And it records the entire flight, which in turn gives me so many background and lighting options to pick from. This flight produced 1200 images, which allowed me to find the best one for the client. And, even after 1200 images, there was still about 25% battery charge left.
