View Full Version : Bigma focal lenght

Here is what a 50-500mm lens can do for you. Factoring the 1.6x crop factor of the camera body, the lens is 80-800mm. These two shots were taken behind the Public Library and show the US coast. These photos were just level tweaked and resized for the web, no cropping.
At 50mm (more like an 80mm in view, so in reality, the naked eye would see this scene smaller then it shows). Can you see anyone?
At 500mm (more like an 800mm in view). Oh, there she is!
So, I can actually see individuals from across the river. lol. Talk about the realm of digiscoping.

Was that hand held, Chako, or did you use a tripod?

I was testing out a new tripod I bought yesterday.
I do often handhold the Bigma and camera with great success. The heavy weight lends itself to stability when shooting.
Here is another close up using the bigma at its 500mm focal length (800mm on the Canon). Must have been a slow time, as you can't see anyone in the tower. lol. Keep in mind, these photos are reduced in size from 3504x2336 to 800x533. So you can really see the details using the full image.

These photos really are impressive. It wasn't that long ago you mentioned a Bigma and I wasn't sure what you were talking about...Now I wish I could justify buying one. Oh well, maybe some day......

Here is a photo of the camera and Bigma set at 500mm.

excellent pics,.. the only downfall to telescopic pictures is that the clarity is only as good the air quality. for those who don't understand that means if there is a slight haze in the air, the picture will be washed out looking, dull colours with no crisp edges contrary to what Chako managed to get today.
Very nice setup!
