Today I had an interesting experience, I have done a flight at around 12:00h , very sunny outside, and I have observed that on the majority of the pictures there is somehow a reflection of the sun. The flight was done over a wheat field.

Alex replied to Alex's discussion Canon SX230 - sample pictures
"Richard, thanks a lot for the sample picture , very good quality! 

My big disadvantage is that my wing is flying at 60-70 km/h while taking pictures.

I will put on my Santa Claus wish list :) a hexacopter."

Alex replied to Alex's discussion Canon SX230 - sample pictures
"Hi, you were right. 

I have used -1 stop ( maybe too much) and the pictures are better:



At next flight I will try -0.66  to see the difference. On the post above, by "Asa 200" did you mean to say ISO?

Thank you."
