Wondeful pics blue volt. Easily to the standards of t-bhp! As CrazyDriver said, processing is definitely a notch above. But your coverage and pics make the thread really good to read thru.

I guess there's no thread on Audi. Can anybody else having some images and details on Audi share it over here.

Hi bluevolt,

Car shows are THE most difficult place to shoot.

1) Multiple light sources defeat the auto focus half the time giving you blurry pics.
2) The TTL meter on the camera finds it very difficult to measure the right exposure. This can result in over or under exposed shots as well as over saturated pics.

Therefore, you need to check for focus and exposure after every shot, and repeat if required. You should also shoot it raw so that you have maximum room for fixing the exposure later.

As I can see from the pics, you have suffered both the problems. Keep practicing, learn to change the exposure shot to shot depending on the need. It can be done.

Let me share examples of properly exposed whites and yellows, and unsaturated red. See in full size.

A possible candidate for me when I upgrade where I am looking forward to move "SUVish"... Will they have a covered storage area similar to the picture below?
Yes they do have an option of a full cover for the load area. This was shown in the black Vmax (see the picture I posted on the previous page). I too am very keen on this vehicle and loved it when I saw it in the Expo. Do also see the Isuzu at Auto expo thread for more pics of this SUV.

Nice shoot!

Few of my thoughts: Crysta in purple will look awesome at night, mainly in cities. You mixed Hexa & Nexon, I think you meant Hexa. BRV looked like Mobilio with higher GC and bit of cladding. People who like Mobilio will like BRV. I think Honda should have launched BRV earlier and skipped the Mobilio.

Thanks Aakarsh. Hopefully we will plan out a meet again. And hopefully it will be executed much better this time.

Thanks CD, I actually realized this now. Post processing could have been toned down a bit. I don't have edit option to edit the thread anymore else would have made the changes.

Requesting members to view via desktop/laptop, high contrast and saturation will become adjustable.

Thanks swiftnfurious. I agree on the processing part, could have been better. Hopefully next time

Thanks a lot Samurai sir for the valuable tips. I would make sure to keep a check on contrast & saturation levels in future.

With the kind of weekend rush, I was just focusing on how to get a clean shot instead of tuning the settings every now and then.

Thanks Sourabh. Yup, I actually suggested Tata a new name for the Zica! Tata Hexon!

And yes you are right about BR-V/Mobilio. Let's see how Honda prices it.

Yeah, they do have the hydraulic cover however do note that the estimated cost would be 1.2 lacs, as provided by the exhibitors. I see this vehicle failing because of another poor case of mis evaluation of the market in terms of pricing.

What engine powers the Ultra 1518 - is it a Cummins one, or a 497 derivative?

More than 3.2 lakh people visited the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida on the first three days, with Sunday witnessing a record crowd of over 1.3 lakh.

The current edition of the biennial show has so far seen more footfalls than last year - fewer than 3.1 lakh people visited it on the first three days in 2014. The organisers are expecting 6 lakh visitors before the show closes on Tuesday, compared with 5.6 lakh last time.

Despite some big ticket absences, the Auto Expo seems to have shrugged it aside and surged to new heights and looks like it will comfortably exceed the levels set in the previous edition.

Regarding the engine, most probably it will have a new 1.5 l diesel engine rated at 108 bhp and 2.6 kgm of torque. On the other hand, same petrol engine from zest could be there as an option too.

Aakarsh
I had a word with a TATA engineer there at the expo, and he said that the engine to be used is newly developed in house. It is a 1.5lt diesel, and they'll soon start marketing it.

Regarding its launch, everyone is singing a different song. Some say it'd be mid 2016, and some are saying it'd be 2017.
I believe it'd early 2017, as TATA has Hexa, Zica and Kite to launch. Don't know in what order will these new vehicles be launched.

Overall amazing show by TATA.
