Today marks a new acquisition for my photographic arsenal. I finally bought a good tripod so can take better low-light and panoramic shots. Not cheap by any means but it is designed to be a light-weight travel tripod but still sturdy enough to easily take my camera and lenses without shifting or changing under the weight.

So today I have a couple of images, the first being an HDR and the second being one from an HDR series that looked better in the end by itself.

Library HDR (f11 1/6 3/5 2.5s 24mm)

The second is a shot of the skytower taken from Albert Park. I would have preferred to frame it differently as both the sky tower and the horizon are too central. But I couldn’t crop it without it looking crappy (mostly because the flower bed in the foreground couldn’t be cut without looking stupid).

Really like the library photo! What steps did you use for your exposure bracketing?

What kind of tripod did you get?

I just the 3 stop AEB setting in the menu opened it +/- 2EV. I’m working on a project to give me arbitrary bracketing but that will take a while and require some electronics playing.

The Tripod is the Induro AB0 (incorrectly listed as the A0 here: http://www.photowarehouse.co.nz/1003826/induro+a0+tripod+kit+legs+and+head/ ) which seems to be on par with the $400NZ Manfrotto tripods. It only weighs 1.2kg and can hold 4.5kg on top. My camera only being 1.3kg ;-)
