  • There shouldn't be a focuser on the adapter unless you put it there. You need to adjust for the extra length between the camera and the telescope mount by changing the telescope focus, not any ...

    Now you have: http://www.pbase.com/liquidstone/moon_shots When using a 2X teleconverter, you reduce the relative aperture by 2 f/stops.  When using a 1.4X teleconverter, you reduce the relative ...
  • What happened when you tried to focus, accounting for the length of the adapter?
  • The shutter release delay is caused by other things between the shutter button and the shutter release, which includes the auto-focus and the speed of the data processors. If you're using your ...
  • Replied in Not possible
    If you don't want to resize the image and save the changes to a new file, what you want is not possible. If you enlarge the image, you must change the number of pixels either by interpolation or ...
  • Right-click on the image window and find the contextual menu function for 50% view, and also the function for 100% view if you want the maximum resolution displayed.  You can also configure the ...
  • If you don't know what you're looking for, you should both go to a camera store and let her make the decision.  There are many options from the various manufacturers, but what I like won't be what ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes, 3 clicks up. If your camera supports 1, 1/2, and 1/3 stop increments for the ISO Speed, then you can change that setting.  Few cameras still have a setting that can do a 1-stop increment for ...
  • Your budget, assuming that you're talking about Federal Reserve Notes or a similar fiat currency, is not usable.  While you may be able to get an older, and quite a usable camera, for that price, ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    When photographing under artificial indoor lighting: (1) Don't use the P mode (2) Look at what you're doing, then put the camera up to your face
  • Replied in Too hasty
    You're releasing the shutter too early, and you're misfocusing.  Focus first, wait for the beginning of the ball release, and then release the shutter.
  • The more expensive lens will obviously behave better because it has a higher IQ, which means a higher overall optical quality and focusing accuracy, even when the camera body has a low IQ.
  • Using an auto-focus point expansion is recommended unless the camera doesn't have a reliable spread of expansion points. AF-C means continuous auto-focus.  It has nothing to do with "action."  In ...
  • I'll set the colour saturation lower if there's too much saturation.  Less colour looks better than overdone colours.
  • Why would you reduce your available focus points? What is "AFC-" and why are you using it? Where are you aiming your selected focus point? Are you using lenses and a camera that normally provide ...
  • If the venue lights are cycling, causing colour and brightness changes, JPEG-only is not recommended unless you are using strobes. I use a single White Balance and one of the Picture Styles with ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    The best lenses include: Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8 Nikkor 24 f/1.4 Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 Nikkor 85 f/1.8 Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8
  • A 24-70 and 14-24 is good for photos from the floor near the basket.  A 70-200 and lenses with focal lengths longer than 200 mm are good for photos of areas beyond mid-court, or while using an ...
  • The DPR review of the camera could be a place to start: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-cybershot-dsc-rx100-m2/3 You should also read the printed manual that should have been included with the ...
  • Replied in Yes
    A tripod is always better than the regular Image Stabilizer, unless you don't have one or you need more mobility.  The old 70-200 lens is more difficult to focus, and that's both because of the ...
