We managed to stay away from work and computer and spent some time in the snow. we were lucky to stay next to the lake. i went out in the middle of the night at 20F weather to take some photos. i stood out there for an hour. this one i was particularly proud of.

    any slr can set a shutter speed of 160s. use bulb mode or aperture priority with a small aperture + low iso.

    What makes me confused about this thread is that there's this very popular one for "Alternative photos", and then an absolute dearth of photos of badminton in the rest of this sub-forum.

    Because we tend to separate the treads to subject matters so people get what they want more easily. If you are looking for badminton photos there are many treat showing this. Suggest you look at the tournament treats...

    The threads you refer to aren't exactly evident. On the first page of threads I count 4-5 with titles that indicate they might include some photos of people playing badminton. The rest almost universally refer to the selection between Canon or Nikon, what kind of lens to use and so on. I'm just disappointed by the lack of badminton photos..

    Most people will not place their photos here as most of those photos relates to a particular tournament so to view badminton photos you have to go to the tournament forum. There are usually one or two treads dealing specifically with badminton photos of these events. There are also photos in the players forum. The best mean to find them is via the search function but I find half the fun is just cruising the forum

    You may need a device to allow the shutter speed of 160s. I don't know how the D700 works. The D90 only allows a maximum exposure time of 30s. For longer amount of time, a shutter cord/wireless control device is needed.

    Default Hmm..

    ..i was thinking the same also as the Bulb option is the next option to choose. However, i've never tried that long of an exposure/shutter speed nor have thought/imagined we would need that much time. Perhaps i should try that option the next time, and if the camera allows it.
    Btw, kwun's pic's properties indicate he used a pretty "large" aperture f/5.8 + a medium ISO.

    *Destricto_Ense: Yes, the title of this sub-forum "Badminton Photography" is somewhat misleading or vague, esp. after one enters and finds out most of the threads either discuss about camera equipments or techniques or photography, in general.
    As for this thread's title, well, i think the contents speak for themselves.
    However, if you've opened some of the threads, in this sub-forum, there are a few threads that discuss badminton-related photos/subjects (how to improve, critiques of badminton pics etc.), like these below:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=66112
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=40330
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=59524
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=60945
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=56004

    In short, I guess this sub-forum would deal w/ anything related to photography, which may encompass badminton as well as other subjects.
    Maybe the sub-forum title could be renamed to something more "general" in nature??
    Yes, what badwally wrote refers to specific badminton-related photos/pics.

    To Scann: Sorry for the late shooting. Maximum iso for LX3 is 3200; so I can only post a pic at 3200.

    You can find more pics by this camera at various iso from this link:

    small aperture + low iso + lots of light = larger aperture + medium iso + a lot less light. i was just suggesting that one way to get a slow shutter speed is to use small aperture + low iso but it depends on your environment and how long you want your exposure to be.

    d90's maximum shutter speed of 30s only applies to shutter priority and manual mode. if you use aperture priority and set a small aperture + low iso then you can get a much longer exposure without using bulb mode or a cable release. i would expect canons to perform the same way otherwise aperture priority mode would be useless at night.

    You are right on the aperture priority and bulb mode. I have found that the aperture priority and bulb not always give me the desired results - too dark (I may need to learn more about the settings). I feel the manual mode allows me better results. I plan to get a cable release to experiment more the bulb feature.
