Hong Kong Bay taken from the Peak
This shot of Hong Kong Bay was taken with my 70D set to "Hand Held Night Scene" the camera takes 4 images and then combines them in to one jpb file. The only adjustment made was a very small amount of levels, and yes the shot was taken hand held :-)

At 1/10 sec you must have some very steady hands Steve so very well done there, some of my 1/30 sec shots look iffy.
Seems like the night mode setting is a worthwhile feature of the camera, may be worth taking it further and get a steady platform to sit the camera on if possible.
Well done for trying this one I do like night scenes.

Very well done for handheld. I would be unlikely to get one reasonable shot handheld, never mind four. The Canon has done a grand job in such conditions and you've done a good job on the edit. Looks like you've left the Canon clock set to UK time. I usually forget to change it for a few days, especially so when coming back to the UK and then wondering why a mid-morning shot shows around 1.30am

Can but agree with the comments above Steve.
Very well done you and the 70D.
Like Jeffrey I love night shots too, so if you have any more

Good work by both yourself and the camera, Lots of interesting buildings to look at and admire in this night image, good colours too.

A super shot of Hong Kong Bay at night, plenty to see see & plenty of colour. Well done for hand held mine would have been all blurred.

Well done indeed - steady hands indeed. Does the 70D have an automatic ISO setting?
