All three cameras capture mists and spheres. Both photographers switch cameras around often and haven't found one to be better than another except that one has better resolution than the others.
BUT - my husband tends to get more mists (no matter which camera he uses) than I do! I tend to get more exotic spheres than he does. We both get other types sky anomalies also.

Okay, *that's* weird. :D

Does the other camera ever get any mists, or no? Eg, one could have an IR filter on (no mists) and the other off or of a less-filtery type (mists!).

I don't want to screw up my camera's sensor, but it does have an IR filter that does come off, which some people do (ie, remove it) when they want to take IR photos (actually blocking all/most VIS).

A point'n'shoot might not have that option, though.

It is a great idea, and we have tried it multiple times. NEVER have the cameras recorded the same shot at the same time. As a matter of fact, this particular photo of the mist was only on one camera nothing the other.

And ooh!, I got an idea.

You got *2* cameras there, right? Synchronise your shots so that you take 2 different pix at the same exact time. Maybe you can get a "stereo" shot to see the... thing... in 3D, ie, almost stereoscopic vision.

Like, "3... 2... 1... *now*!", and both snap the pic.

Also telling might be how 2 cameras would take the same shot. One might take a clear image, the other might not record anything at all. Or one might be clearer, the other blurrier. Any differences might be telltale in some way.

Yes, it is interesting. Especially the fact that you can't see it until AFTER you have taken the picture.

About Kavannah


I am an avid skywatcher. I photograph at least twice a day usually dusk and dawn for most images. I have been capturing unusual or uncategorized pictures nearly everyday. I have been diligent about debunking common causes. I can find no correlation with the photos and the weather (ie: humidity levels, temperature, barometric pressure, sunspot activity, electromagnetic earth readings, or even pollen counts).
