  • Replied in Flash basics
    Canon flash in Av mode acts as 'fill flash'.  You set for ambience and the flash will attempt to illuminate the foreground.  Useful for backlit subjects outdoor. The easiest way to use the 430EXII ...
  • Several folk have had similar experience whilst others have had better copies.  I think I was lucky and had a good copy and below is the first ever photo I took with it - I was then unlucky and ...
  • Jim, thanks for your response.  I don't know why BD doesn't play nicely on my machine and I've posted and you've responded to the problems on the two occasions I've tried it.  I'm well aware of ...
  • I had seen that link and was deceived by the "paid for" in the link and the fact that there wasn't a removal for a free 2014 version.  Anyhow I tried the one in the 2013 link and it made no ...
  • What is says on the camera body is what it does! See the review on this site: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonicfz5/ - the samples at the end are 2560 x 1920 pixels.  Have you set to a ...
  • I want to move some folders to a USB drive. I seem to recall from years ago that there was a way of doing this and make it transparent that it had been done ie if the external drive was running I ...
  • Earlier this year I was persuaded to (again) try BitDefender. For various reasons it doesn't play nicely with my XP SP3 laptop and I uninstalled it using the Programs/Uninstall option. Regardless ...
  • There is a menu option to clear/reset all options.  Without double checking there may be one also for external flash settings.  The occasional strange behaviour on the Rebel range has been cured ...
  • The only thing I can think of is the custom external flash setting (Put the external flash on, Menu->Flash Control->External Flash Control) and check that AF-Assist beam firing is Enabled. Does the ...
  • I've too fallen foul of under charging in business (not photography).  If they are happy again with your work and you are approached again next year then arrange to meet with their buyer - take ...
  • You'll probably find it better to go into manual mode, set your shutter speed as you want, eg 1/100th, set your aperture to something suitable such as f/5.6 or f/8, ISO at 200, make sure you are ...

  • Not my idea of fun at all :(.  Every site I've been to trying to find these photos has had them deleted or is shut down.  A wasted morning.
  • It is worth noting that with some of the modern devices/systems a cloud account is automatically created and files automatically uploaded unless you take some very specific steps. My sister ...
  • Cannot disagee more. Most things are built to a price and improving the materials, the tolerances, coatings, the sealing, the mechanism all adds money. Just because you can't see it doesn' t mean ...
  • Take it slowly. Work through the tutorials at http://www.cambridgeincolour.com and come back here with specific questions. Go into P mode or Av mode as other have suggested. Have a play with: http: ...
  • By asking that question it is clear to most photographers that you are unlikely to have an understanding of some of the other issues hence their (our) extra comments. Yes the lens can only be ...
  • You'd get a bit more specific help if you could let us know what camera, what lens, how far the group are away from you. How do you arrive at you aperture settings? If all the people are in a line ...
  • Quite a few folk will set their camera with say -1/3 EV and just leave it at that because for most of their photography with that camera and their favourite lens it gives them the best exposure. My ...
  • The whole point of an SLR is to be able to see the world in real time exactly as the lens sees it.  It isn' t just one tick in its favour, for those that need the facility it is a massive tick and ...
