Niagara Falls - #VantagePoint

American Falls - Niagara

Recently I learned about the light.co #VantagePoint project where photographers are challenged to share their favorite photo (s). I'm just an amateur photographer and my camera is a Nikon D5300. This past weekend we went to Niagara Falls and I couldn't wait to get some night shots as the falls are gorgeous as they light up in different colours. We walked along the walkway from the American Falls to over to the Horseshoe Falls and I used my 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for these shots and just turned my flash off. I did find I was picking up alot of the mist but to me, that just made the photo's so much more interesting and truly showed the falls as they are in all their glory.

Light.co is manufacturing a camera that I would certainly love to get my hands on!
The Light L16 camera is a small compact camera that fits into the palm of your hand and uses multiple lenses that fuse all the photo's together to look like a DSLR quality photo!

How does it work?? Watch these videos!

I am honored to be chosen to share my photo's for them and I will certainly be keeping an eye on this amazing new technology!

SUPER shots and results Karen

Those are some pretty cool shots! I like shooting waterfalls and running water. Both extremely short, crisp "capture a moment in time" shots, and longer exposures where you get more of the creamy "movement" blur of the water as it changes over time...

I hope the L16 can "do both." I think they can. I also hope they get low-light photography right. Much as I love my Canon G9, low-light just kills it. Still noisy. Granted it's a few years old now, and newer models probably have better ISO and low-light performance.

For anyone interested in learning more about the Light L16, I think these are some of the best videos / interviews I've unearthed to date:


And for keeping up with the latest discussions / rumors / finds, or just chatting about hopes & dreams for the thing:
