I recently returned from a workshop in Iceland. I took the IQ260 with me and was using it the whole trip. One of the places we visited was an ice cave under a glacier. While this was avery cool and dangerous place to visit, it presented a prefect test ground for the IQ260 long exposure. Above is the before and after images taken with the 260. I did a 12 minute exposure and the resulting image not to mention the histogram looked like it was going to be an image I would throw away. Well, I knew the back had the dynamic range but wasn’t sure how much it had in regards to showing detail I also knew Capture One 7.1.1. had the potential to pull good shadow detail in the highlight – shadow recovery tool. I set out and worked the tools and sliders until I was able to make the image shown on the right. I also used local adjustments to paint in a bit more detail at the bottom of the image and the color image to enhance the blue tone of the ice. I know others tried this shot with a DSLR, but no one was able to pull what I did from this image. If there is one thing I like to do, and that is to push gear to its limits. The IQ260 didn’t let me down, and Capture One delivered on the final image.
