6lb diawa hyper sensor Line for a fun rod project,it's going on my small baitrunner and also on a centrepin for a fun float set up 

I actually just had a bad thought I could have a rod set up to try and fish for bream and tench on more fitting tackle this winter 🥺

Bream ! 😱.

Don't over to the Dark Side , Elmo , think of the slime , the smelly landing net .

Now a lovely Tench , that's understandable .

Secondhand Canon Powershot S3. SD card fits into my ipad connector so I should be able to import pics straight away rather than faff around.

Hello Nick

I just prop my iPad up on a little stand and select video mode , and flick the screen around so it's a mirror ; then in theory I lift the fish off the mat and smile at the camera . I then select any stills from the video clip .

I guess you prefer a pukka camera as you can do so much more with it ? - Niges'  artistic shots spring to mind .

😃

Nowt wrong with a big bream or tench!

 

I tend to do quite a few scenic shots as well, never thought the ipad or phone did them justice. The scenic shot below, when I took it on my phone, the colour was missing from the sky, yet its the colours that make the picture.

 

I also found with fish pics, even on timed self takes, I could get better framing.

If you are fishing for them :)

what I mean though is i need to focus on the carp for now 😃

when doing self takes at night ? Do you think one of those floodlights would be useful to light the area ? The thing I found was I needed my headlight to see what I was doing but it messed up the shot as the flash on my phone didn't always go or I catch the light in the shot 

i am now thinking use my DSLR with remote btw

That is another reason I prefer a specialist camera. I have struggled with phone takes, self takes are out.

I personally don't use any additional light. I set the camera up focused on the picture spot, I have normally framed it inside the unhooking mat or a pair of banksticks either side of me. I also check my height inside the area. I am not too keen on cutting my head off!

As a rough rule of thumb , Nick , the bigger the Bream the less " snotty " ? , I'll grudgedly admit the bronze colouring is quite a good look .

I still prefer your double figure Tench though , as featured in an angling publication .

I just wondered as it is hard to do everything in the dark like dealing with the fish and another light may help with all that so you don't need the headlight for that moment, you could maybe angle it from the side so it's out of shot but lighting the area if you see what I mean, 

I tested my self take button using my toe last week I think with a pair of open toed sliders for bivvy wear that could make self takes easier rather than holding the fish and the remote

Imo it's essential to light the scene for self takes.

The flash on modern DSLR's are good - good enough to produce well lit pics imo. The problem is focus. With no light source (between shots) the camera will struggle to focus. Therefore the shots my be bright enough with just the flash but they will be of poor quality.

The floodlight type lights (Rhino Beam etc) are a very cheap way of achieving great self-take pics at night. I would recommend them highly.

Brilliant thanks that's the confirmation I needed as I thought that may help  still got to catch one but when I do will be nice to get some decent shots of it

This is the kind of lighting you can expect with the rhino beam plus built in flash buddy. Not perfect, but very good for the low price.

Remember you can get an intervalomater for a tenner that removes all need for messing about with the remote buddy.

if you use a mobile

Have you ever tired to get decent self takes at night with a mobile buddy? It's not possible. The sensors are so small that the processor is forced to increases ISO so much so that you end up with a horrible, grainy, washed out image. That is if you manage to get the phone to recognise/focus on the subject in the first place.

If you're not that bothered about genuine image quality then a phone can do a decent job in the day time, but technology has not moved far enough for them to perform at night - yet.

Yeah that's going to be my next thing I think but will try the remote first as I now have it,

if you use a mobile you can get a mobile phone clamp and a mini tripod from the pound shop and then set you phone's camera to "voice command" and do your self takes that way

I've got the whistle app and while it is good enough for days I do agree with Yonny that phones are hard work for night shots, I really struggled the last few times tbh, also I am hopeful of a lump or two so it would be nice to get some good shots it's something I've always been slack at and now I generally fish on my own it would be nice to get the shots I want to see,
