On June 2nd. 2012 on Lake Erie, I was out to shoot the sunset my first real sunset of the year. While I was photographing some birds on a rock at huntington beach Ohio, in Bay Village I captured these objects. I did not see them in the sky when I was taking the photographs. I snapped 7 frames in 1.5 seconds in sports mode on the Canon 60D I have with the 18mm - 200mm EF-S lens. When I got home and was reviewing the photographs I found on 5 of the Frames these objects that must have flew by quite rapidly because I didn't see them and no one else saw them as well. The Camera was on a tripod at the time focused on birds on a rock about 60 yards out in lake Erie, camera set in sports mode which a very fast frames per second. I can photograph 16 frames at 5.3 frames a second. The Canon 60D is a DSLR you see through the lens with this camera not at a digital eye video screen but the true subject or TTL, Through the lens. One could say "Oh look, dead pixels but what you need to understand I have only had the Canon 60D since last October 2011 and I had the camera at Canon at the beginning of the year for cleaning maintenance like I do with several of my cameras every year.
Canon corporation in NJ services my cameras, I am a Sliver Member of Canon Professional Services so I get 4 free cleanings every year. I know it is not dead pixels and I know the camera is shooting in excellent condition.
The camera is on a tripod so I am only pressing the shutter button in continuous sports shooting mode letting the cameras A.I. do all the focusing for me and shooting at high speed. The time is around 7:30pm or so. There is a storm coming in from the north so the sky is kind of dark orange and the Sun is nearly to the horizon line at this point.
I have no idea what these objects are, they are not in good focus because that is not what I am focusing on at the time. I circled the moving objects over 5 frames because again the camera is stationary and I am not holding the camera in my hands.
Again I didn't report these objects to the news, and posted the photograph on my Facebook which is for friends only and not public to view and see what they thought of the objects.
They look very much like the ones I caught at night with the Canon SX30 IS om the video. I have the CR2 Raw photographs and this one photograph is frames combined into one frame starting top down Frame 1 - 5 of the 7 frames. Frame 6 and 7 do not have any of these objects in them. Dead Pixels do not move across the screen they are stationary things so I know they aren't dead pixels.
Just the Link to keep the page format from getting over extended like Martin mentioned earlier.
This photograph is on my Zen's Photography FTP page, when you get to it, the cursor should have a magnify glass with a plus on it so you can see the photograph real big.
