  • Replied in About HDR?
    He already has adequate free software as I stated in my other posts and it can do single shot HDR (obviously best with RAW) and multiple shot either RAW or JPG.  No need at this stage to start paying.
  • Replied in About HDR?
    On the menus across the top choose Tools then Start HDR - you need to have an image selected.
  • Replied in About HDR?
    Because of the greater dynamic range of a RAW file it is possible to do single shot HDR and it is in fact an option on Canon's DPP.   That removes the need for 3 bracketed shots, tripod etc.  ...
  • If I am reading the description of the 300d correctly he has no choice about AI-Focus, see http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/EDR/EDRA5.HTM The EOS 300D's AF system operates in One Shot, AI ...
  • A factor that wasn't in my original thinking but is now I've used Canon for a few years is that the DPP software that comes with it is pretty good and regularly updated with new features. Main ...
  • ??  Even if the extra is at the same EV??
  • mmm - didn't my earlier post show up? :( Anyway - yes - I used to be able to calculate most of those figures in my head in old manual camera days and it clearly doesn't mention either camera ...
  • Have a look at the tables in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exposure_value. Quick answer: providing the light across the scene is the same then it doesn't matter what lens, or indeed, what camera, ...
  • So much for the plethora of hardware diagnostic software. I bet she is too!
  • The guideline exposure for the moon is the "loony 11" rule - so f/11 @ 1/ISO With reasonably standard lenses eg 250mm quite reasonable photos can be taken handheld, however for impact you want as ...
  • and as well you can take a RAW image and render it in the same program any number of ways and end up with multiple images that look different to each other in terms of the details? (depending on ...
  • I'll throw in a couple of things for you to consider bearing in mind your tight budget. If you shoot RAW then Canon's DPP has Digital Lens Optimisation (DLO) for the two lenses you have.  Obviously ...
  • Absolutely.  Albeit with a crop camera one of my first shots with the nifty-fifty whilst waiting for the bus home after buying it.  I would hope for at least as good with a better lens.  I also ...
  • I still have my XG-1 - an earlier version of the XG-M. Haven't used it for a while (15yrs). Still have one or two rolls of unused film.  Think I've got a flash setup around as well and a few lenses. ...
  • Well you are on the right track but something still doesn't seem right.  Hopefully someone with a bit more knowledge will come along or maybe repost in the Canon Lens forum where more folk will ...
  • The OP said "most of his photos" - I didn't take that to be just his pictures of this girl though it may be and he also said he was playing to learn.  He didn't say he was going into professional ...
  • Yes - just get a P&S - no probs with DOF there! It is worth spending a bit of time checking what your lens can do wide open and stopped down a touch.  But as pointed out elsewhere the focus ...
  • Why?  You don't know what effect the OP is trying to get. That doesn't address the issue.  What is unclear is what is the focus plane.  If he had asked "how do I get the whole of the girl in focus" ...
  • Well yes, and even unsure where Austria is. Well I didn't think 'esky' was an Austrian thing.
