    @Bloop586 I have tested this and LO1 has less noise than ISO 200. I see no
    difference in any other aspect of image quality.

    QQQQcon, I am watching at different tutorials for getting the smooth silky
    water effect yet nobody teach us how to calculate the time of exposure. How
    do you come up with say 15″? A wild guess? thousand trial and error? Please
    tell me how. Thanks!

    for photographing rivers, i use f/8, and use some nd filters. if its a wide
    angle lens, i would use a smaller aperture. hey what happened to your rb67?
    or do you just not carry the 10 pound setup

    You can also use the neutral gray filter to reduce the light to be able to
    take pictures in bright sunlight at 1 second

    if I didnt care i wouldnt post the video at all, I cant spend hours filming
    a video for youtube so it looks amazing. It is about the information. if
    you want a pretty video you should not be watching a tutorial.

    @Bloop586 I dont think its that you “have” to sharpen more, its just that
    you can, and it will make it look better, when shooting at higher iso’s
    when you sharpen you sharpen the image as well as the noise, so it doesnt
    look very good.. But the grain will naturally make detail look a bit more
    “sharp”, more so in a black and white picture.

    I like all your videos, well explained thank you. I want to ask you a
    question. Which focus is good manual or auto focus for wild life
    photography. I am trying to use manual. Please let me know. I try most of
    my photos with manual settings. Subbu

    Just discovered your channel, Great videos, personally i like your tutorial
    videos because your explanations are very beginner friendly. As for your
    reviews, if i was more knowledgable in the field i would probably enjoy
    those too.

    can’t you use a neutral density filter to darken it and be able to use
    longer exposures?

    @Bloop586 all I know is that blue skys have noticeably less noise in then
    on LO1. I am not sure about any other claims but like I said other than
    noise I see no difference.

    @ILLTEACHYOUPHOTOSHOP true it is the best deal for landscape photography
    but I need something fast for wildlife. Nikon lenses are also much better
    than canon at the moment. The nikon 14-24mm, 16-35mm, 70-200mm VR2, 85
    f/1.4 and many of the new lenses that are coming out are better than
    anything I have ever seen, sharp from corner to corner at the largest
    f/stop. Hopefully canon will catch up.

    Yes with our a ND filter ur picture would most lightly be way to over
