Little Test: Pushing ISO in Post with Sony Alpha A7RII?

A short test with the Sony A7R2 for Astrophotography. What if a 800 ISO shot is pushed by three stops in Lightroom. Does it match the shot taken with 6400 ISO in camera?

Misty Island (4K | UHD) from Joerg Niggli on Vimeo.

Entirely taken in La Gomera, the second smallest of the Canary Islands. The eastern part of the island is under a steady stream of clouds that climb the steep, volcanic slopes. When they reach the top, they immediately dissolve again. From humid, cool haze to warm, dry sunshine in minutes - that's Gomera.
Aufgenommen in La Gomera, der zweitkleinsten der kanarischen Inseln. Der östliche Teil der Insel ist unter einem dauernden Strom von Wolken, die die steilen, vulkanischen Hänge erklimmen. Oben angekommen lösen sie sich gleich wieder auf. Vom feuchten, kühlen Dunst ins warme, trockene Sonnenwetter in Minuten - das ist Gomera.

Cameras: Sony A7S, A7RII, A6300. Edited in FCPX. Graded with Filmconvert. Music: Far Away Lands, Score Scene Library (rearranged)

The «HyperZürich» Experiment

The short «HyperZürich» is the result of an experiment.

How fast can you do move with your camera, shooting in continuous mode, and thus creating a hyperlapse?

The resulting video was shot in 2-3 hours in downtown Zurich. More on the technique and some conclusions in the «Timelapse Plus» section.
