I happened to watch the 2011 "Tiburon" episode of Les Stroud's "Survivorman 10 days" last night. I'm pretty sure he had at least two Canon XF 100s with him on the island. Can anyone confirm that? I also liked the various time-lapse sequences, and I'm pretty sure that the ones in daylight were done with the XF100s' interval mode.
However, he also had great night time lapse that showed a huge number of stars, even a bit of the Milky Way. In my experience, that kind of night-time brightness takes at least a 10 sec exposure and typically done with a DSLR in interval mode; I don't think the XF100, could render the night sky that bright, even with the shutter set for 1/2 sec or even 1 sec.
TIA to any XF100 owners who can comment on this!
