Walpurgis Night

f/1.8, 1/125, ISO 12 800 (!). Canon EOS 5Dmk3 with EF 50mm f/1.2.

Walpurgis Night 2012, celebrating spring together with neighbors just outside Stockholm, this year the evening was fantastic: totally wind free, not exactly warm, but to be able to sit outside in Sweden last day in April until midnight and have dessert near the lake under candle lights ….well then you feel for the first time that the summer is finally approaching after what seems to have been an almost endless winter.

The photos are taken with Canon 5D Mk3 together with EF 50mm F/1.2. The only lights were from a few candles on the table and a small bonfire 15 meters away. Images are RAW converted without much editing in DPP, AWB correction and some exposure tuning. Now with 5D3 it is amazing to use the EF50mm wide-open and to be able nail the focus on most of the images, finally this lens works! And ISO’s used are all the way up to ISO 12800 and still colors look fine and not too much noise either. Under conditions like these the 5D Mk3 is really a huge improvement over the 5Dmk2.

These are incredible - really demonstrates the ability of the 5D3 + 50L combo. I think I'm sold! Nice color correction too - looks very natural.
