  • I will have to research where I obtained the belief that in Av mode + Flash the exposure (ie ambient) was reduced to highlight the foreground (flash lit) subject, and that Canon was unique in this ...
  • My understanding is that in Av mode the ambient/flash ration is changed from what you think it is. see thread at http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56234694 and in particular ...
  • The way in which Canon calculates flash/ambient exposure in Av mode is quite different to how ETTL works in Manual mode which is why many prefer the manual mode.  That isn't to say you can't get ...
  • Yes - with Canon you need an advanced degree in photoscience to understand the algorithms used and shutter speed will be fixed at one of two settable values.  With manual you just need to decide ...
  • Flash, indoor especially, is virtually the only time that I (and many others) use M mode otherwise I too am in Av mode most of the time.  Seriously, just try it, M mode, 1/100, ISO 100, f/8 and ...
  • Sorry if I've missed it but you All focus points (which is what you get in auto) will basically focus on the nearest thing it hits.  What are you focussing on when you use Live Mode?  Set your ...
  • You should have already done that if you'd followed my earlier response :(
  • I had my own attempt a year back though in view of what you said perhaps I should have said "Less noise" "More Noise", and "Correct Exposure" replaced with "Acceptable brightness". Does it need to ...
  • I'm not normally one to disagree with you but isn't the Sunny 16 rule considered traditional? And isn't it basically using the 'exposure' triangle. I dislike these 'exposure'/'brightness'/ISO type ...
  • On Canon cameras in Av mode the exposure (aperture + shutter speed) is used to get correct exposure of the background, with the foreground then illuminated by the flash.  So the shutter speed will ...
  • Often domains with ns in their name are name servers - probably used to help direct to an appropriate update server for the region?
  • All it needs is for you to modify your HOSTS file with the entry 127.0.0.0 www.windowsupdate.com #stop windows updates Technically localhost should be 127.0.0.1 but I read somewhere that it speeded ...
  • I have hidden updates set (ie don't show) and Skype is also set to not update. It is almost as if it has downloaded some information then spent 15 minutes deciding not to install them. I've never ...
  • Replied in I got an F...
    Yes I've got one of those though I can get up to 1.85Mb/s if the wind is in the right direction. I did get a boost in performance when I bought a top quality filter, and another boost after an ...
  • Yes I know - I didn't pick it out at random from the 270,000 files on my computer.  Now tell me why it was updated and what the update was.
  • It's just that I can't find it yet it stalled my machine for the best part of 15 minutes with extracts of logs in my original post. I've got a DataStore.edb dated yesterday with a creation date of ...
  • No as I said in my earlier post. Nothing since the FAX Cover scandal that only got added last month - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2491683
  • No, mine was dated 2014 sometime Not on XP.  They've stopped.  But I've noticed that mine seems to "phone home" daily. No.  I'm going to put a sledgehammer through mine immediately after posting ...
  • Why doesn't NO mean NO? Can't see anything there that has applied.  My first thought was they may have forced the patch but my atmfd.dll remains at 04/06/2013.  Nothing under Windows Security ...
  • Anyone else just get a Windows XP update? I have various activity monitors on my XP SP3 and suddenly saw disk activity go up. A bit of investigation showed wuauclt.exe causing it. Pop into ...
