  • Some cameras lack important controls like the thing for changing the aperture and exposure time.  A simple button and a dial would fix many problems when the myriad of Idiot Modes are too stupid ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes; start with the most expensive dSLRs, Leica cameras, and include Medium Format cameras as well.  Cameras that are intended to be used by non-photographers are made to share their control ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Sigma makes a very competitive product range at a competitive price, and sometimes it makes superior products that do things that Canon and Nikkor lenses don't do at any price.  If you haven't ...
  • Deleting files in-camera won't effect any changes to your IQ, but if you have a low IQ or you're fatigued, you may do something regrettable and preventable. The writing schema depends on the camera ...
  • Replied in Some tips
    In general, and from my own specific experiences with sensor-cleaning, I have three tips for you: (1) If you need to ask, you probably shouldn't be doing it.
  • The most likely reason for not being able to change your photo exposure time below 1/30 is because the shutter speed is set to 30 or 23.976, and you have turned on the video recording mode.  The ...
  • Replied in Yes
    It is sometimes useful to expand the auto-focus area to include the outer ring of auto-focus points, particularly when the object moves quickly away from the centre of the frame. It may take ...
  • You need to go somewhere with the dark sky that you're looking for, away from the light-pollution. You also need to focus better on the objects in the sky. http://www.darksky.org/nightskyconservation
  • Oh.  So, what's a "flash at the moment."  Is that a flash that does better about firing only when everybody is looking at the camera?  I could use one of those.  Too many individuals have a habit ...
  • Replied in Me too
    I'm interested in this, too, and the ability to run the camera on utility power so that it never needs to have a battery change.  The first problem was getting around the 4 GB FAT limit, but once ...
  • The way to prevent the unwanted downloading is to deny the public access to your high-resolution photos, and to use watermarks to discourage copying.  Make it more costly for a thief to lift your ...
  • If you're intending to do any dim-light photography, or photography that requires the tracking of moving objects, none of those cameras that you're considering are good choices.  I don't do the ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    First off, you should not have accepted the job if you knew that you were ill-prepared to do the work.  Your kit is in shambles, and so now you need to rely on your skills to compensate for the ...
  • Replied in Neither
    It is best to obtain the correct exposure, avoiding any overexposure, and allow yourself the latitude to adjust during development the shadows and highlights, in addition to the overall exposure.  ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    The prefocusing technique works best when you are at an angle that is approximately perpendicular to the path of the target.  It doesn't work well when the target is moving parallel to your position. ...
  • Replied in Yes and no
    For a beginner's textbook question, the answer is that the exposure time, relative aperture, and film speed are exactly related.  The standards for lens specifications and relative apertures ...
  • I got a clear shot as the clouds parted. Supermoon on August 11, 2014
  • Get the Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 instead.
  • Replied in It's broken
    I'd guess that a shutter blade isn't closing when it should, although that can be a neat feature when you have a scene that has imbalanced lighting conditions.
  • Can you be specific about what "lines" you are talking about, starting with where exactly in the image to look?  I'm looking for thin, coloured lines that could indicate a problem with the ...
