I spent the Labor Day weekend exploring some new locations. It just so happened that the holiday weekend coincided with new moon...I settle on a remote area in New Mexico, known as the Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area. This area is very remote and requires travel over miles of dirt roads, and dirt tracks. I did as much research as possible and had a pretty good idea of how to get where I was going. The challenge would be not only finding the trailheads to the various locations I wanted to visit, but also being able to find my way back to my vehicle in the dark.
I have been thinking about switching to a mirrorless camera system in the near future. I have heard and read so many good things about them lately. There are many great reviews out there with glowing reports on the autofocus abilities of both the Canon and Sony systems. But nobody ever tests these cameras on their abilities to do long exposures in the heat.
