Cedar Point & More - Lotsa Photo's!

Postby Real » Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:18 am

With the arrival of my new lens I can now pretty much capture any shot Ive not been able to in the past. This year Im dedicating it to creating a pretty comprehensive gallery of photos. Today was mostly a "test" day and I may delete or edit these further, but I figured I would share these first 50 with you.

Mostly all of MF, TTD and Maverick with a few randoms thrown in. Ill organize them all later.

And because I know Ill be asked at some point, heres my camera setup:

Canon 40D
Canon 28-135mm IS
Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro
Canon 100-400mm IS L

Slik Pro 713 CF II Tripod
Manfrotto 498RC4 Ball head

Round 2 of photos! 42 more!

Yes, I took this sideways as they are going DOWN the drop. Kinda angled the camera wrong, oh well.

Great pics from what looked like a picture perfect day (pun intended) LOL

I wish on-ride photos would come out that good.

I would kill for a 400mm lense.

Thankfully I found a 2 year old 100-400mm on ebay at a reasonable price. I also lucked out that I lost some stuff in a fire that I wasnt attached to, so, after the claim I put it towards the lens and the tripod combo. 1600 total for both but entirely worth it. Long as nothing tragic happens, I plan to have it for many, many years.

I was really scared it wouldnt be as sharp at 400mm as I wanted (and Id seen some VERY sharp copies on the web...mostly new or lucky ones) and after enough research found the last 3 years models to be sharp to very sharp. This one is between that from 100-400 (at 100mm its stupid sharp) but at 400mm from f7.1 and up its sharp enough for that kind of distance.

If you have a canon camera, I can recommend this lens in a heartbeat. Just ensure you get a newish lens.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Nice pictures! With all that clarity I couldn't help but notice what looked like some larger riders on Millennium Force. I wonder if they loosened up the belts this season?
1. Intimidator 305 2. Maverick 3. Bizarro at SFNE 4. Millennium Force 5. Raptor
6. Batman & Robin: The Chiller (defunct) 7. Nitro 8. Apollo's Chariot 9. Afterburn (Carowinds) 10. Lightning Racer

Awesome pictures!

I agree that it'd be incredible to have onride photo turn out half this well - then you'd actually feel "ok" about paying those crazy prices!

Well done ... although I have to admit I was sifting through them looking for some hidden treasure (or wardrobe malfunction)! ;)

And you win the prize...I have one that is NSFW. Really funny you mentioned that...I am pretty sure I cant post it here. But lets say, overweight woman with low cut top on Maverick...

Why do I still have a donkey title???
