2 meters away from fast moving object
« on: October 18, 2006, 04:19:06 AM »
What ISO, on a bright, slightly diffused sunny day for a fast moving object, about 2 to 3 meters away?

The correct one to get the effect you want :-)
depends, if you want to stop the action high iso and shutter speed.
What is this object? how far will it move in say 0.25 sec

do you want blur or frozen in time. what f. can you use for d.o.f and can your lens focus fast enough.

Oh, details, I forgot. I don't really wanna say... just yet what it is (I'll let you guys know later). I'm hoping for a slight blur, and it's about 60km/h. So, I'm already planning on fast shutter speed, and whatever f stop will do.

I don't know about the ISO, but what you really need when standing 2 meters away from a 60km/h object is a wall ;-)

ISO 400 or 800 (depends on what f. you want) shutter between 90th and 125th second and pan with the subject. pre focus and keep both eyes open so you always have one eye on the subject. test your f. so you have enough depth of field to cover the moving subject.

Like others have said, it depends on how fast the object, what you are trying to accomplish and what lenses you have. The speed chart here may help...
http://members.shaw.ca/ocl3/technical1.html

I normally use ISO 400. To STOP flying geese and have them sharp takes at least 1/1000, but I've achieved reasonable results at speeds of 1/250 or 1/350. The faster the better. But if you are looking for the blurred motion effect, then used what it takes....1/30 or faster ..or slower ....depends.

Thanks D7d and Clive. Unfortunately, a combination of work, weather, and visitors hasn't allowed me to do the shoot, just yet. And now, my work is sending my to the rice paddy parts of Japan (a lonely prefecture named Fukui... for the non-juvenilles, it's pronounced 'foo-kooi'), and I'll be there for a couple of months.

btw, Clive, that's a great page you've got there.
