  • Replied in Some guesses
    Maybe you've changed your compression level, or you're resizing your images.  Of course, you've checked these obvious things in your Save As screen, right?  Which software package are you using ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Turn off the stupid "Auto" mode, and use the Manual exposure mode. Turn on the flash, not the flashlight. Increase or decrease your film sensitivity as necessary to control the flash exposure. Repl ...
  • Replied in Some reasons
    Because one needs a lens that provides the ability to use faster exposure times, auto-focus, and a bright viewfinder with which to see what you're doing in dim lighting conditions. Because one ...
  • Any touching of the lens may be picked up by the microphone.  The auto-focus motor isn't engaged during recording.  The use of a flash isn't appropriate for video recording.
  • Replied in Try it yourself
    A good estimate, without knowing the specific camera you're talking about, is to double the power draw as a result of writing to the one card, which is also dependent on the type of card being ...
  • Replied in Looks fake
    That example looks like there was some digital manipulation, or the shot was taken through a pinhole. I don't like the severe amount of distortion. If you're doing the extreme blur, I'd prefer a ...

  • That depends on how this vague camera interprets the file names on the card. Let's assume that you have a Canon 5D Mark II, and you've applied a file name schema that begins with "IMG_". You then ...
  • Replied in Buy a dSLR
    Don't blow up pictures.  They usually don't look good afterwards. Enlarging images is reasonable when the viewing distance also increases, but to be able to extract portions of the image and use ...
  • A lens has an aperture range that is specified in its technical manual.  You can't go down past f/16 or whatever minimum aperture is possible, and you should avoid going down past f/11 such as to ...
  • That "50x" or whatever "x" that the marketers slap on their products doesn't mean much.  You need focal length and aperture in the form of high-quality glass.  Unless you have one of the £5000 ...
  • The Av mode will work when the camera is used with the 17-55 lens.  In fact, the Av mode will work when the camera is used with any Canon EF lens.  It won't work when you are using a lens that has ...
  • Were your exposure parameters correct, were you focused on the target, and was your tripod stable?  If not, you can try changing every setting on the camera, but you'll still have blurry photos. No ...
  • I wouldn't buy an EVF because it's not necessary for photography.  I have an EVF for some events, but that's easy to make. I also use an OVF, but not for normal photography. Clearer pictures are ...
  • There's no such thing as a "setting of aperture camera."  What you are trying to say is that the camera is complaining about not being able to adjust the aperture of the lens, because there's no ...
  • Replied in Turn it off
    I suggest that the IS shouldn't be running unless there is actually a detectable vibration.  While the IS may be tripod-aware and turn itself off, it may also be activating because it detects ...
  • Replied in Bigger is better
    To resolve those rings requires a long focal length, and preferably a 6-inch or larger aperture. This is an 11-inch aperture on a tracking mount: This is a usual view through one of these 11-inch ...
  • Also, if the consumer isn't really interested in photography, investing in high-quality Nikkor lenses is probably better than holding cash, because the central banks can't print lenses. I still ...
  • I have a fear that my Internet and telephone data is being harvested by unscrupulous persons in government bureaucracies, data which is then resold to crony corporations for marketing purposes and ...
  • Replied in Scary
    That's very scary.  It sounds like it's a good plan to start bringing weapons.  Shouldn't it be easy to eliminate the criminals?  Where are the parents?
