It is true, I do need a new camera. I have loved my Nikon D800, but when it comes to long exposures it kinda sucks. Since most of the work I do is that, then how do I do them when I have so many problems with the final result?
This is the image I’ve been working on today.
This is a long exposure of Melbourne that I took over a year ago. It was taken early in the morning. It is a busy intersection and I wanted to see what a long exposure would do to it.
I am going to put this up on Instagram tomorrow morning, but I have to say I was a bit annoyed with all the hot pixels all over it. Take a look at this.
This is part of the image and I have circled every dot I could find, well until I got sick of it.
When the images are small it isn’t a problem, but if I want to exhibit some and blow them up, then it will be a massive problem. The dots are all over the images. It would take hours to get rid of them.
I know a new camera will have a better sensor, so now I have to start thinking about what I’m going to do. Do I stick with Nikon? My lenses are good, so I could sell them and buy ones from another brand. I don’t know. I really need to start thinking about it. I hate seeing those coloured dots all over my long exposures.
