  • Replied in Settings!
    Settings that are useful for this purpose: Mirror Lock Up Single Drive Focus to Manual Focus Single Frame Advance Exposure Compensation, +1 I don't know what a "Nikon Cool pIx P600" is, but I...
  • The first problem is that you're not defining which dSLR and which compact camera you're talking about.  A cheap pocketable camera is not the same thing as a Leica M9, and a cheap dSLR is not the...
  • At the displayed resolution, no, there are not the problems that you describe except for the fact that your photos are indeed of low resolution.  Were you using a mobile phone, perhaps? What I...

  • Replied in What's it for?
    It sounds like you don't need to buy another lens.  One issue you've mentioned is in conflict with an unwillingness to spend lots of money, and the other issue is in conflict with not wanting long...
  • Are you sure that you have selected the Macro focusing mode by pressing the appropriate button on the left side of the lens, or by holding the Down Arrow on the 4-way selector during manual...
  • Replied in Jealousy
    That's much better than what I saw.  With the thick clouds in the way, I only got this: Then the clouds thickened again, and no more viewing was possible through the totality.  I even missed...
  • What is this "cleaning mode" anyway?  It likely allows access to the recording sensor, but it doesn't do anything else.  The problem happens if you have the mirror of a dSLR flipped up and the...
  • Replied in That's silly
    Yeah, find a print shop that will make a package for each customer.  Mine often makes a mix of sizes and usually posts it by the next day.
  • Replied in They don't what?
    I'm not sure what the problem is.  If your print shop can't organise and post the different print sizes, find a different shop.
  • The first thing that you should do is replace that 55-300 lens with an f/2.8 telephoto.  The Moon is bright when it's lit, but very dim when it's not.  Unless you are using a guided tripod, f/5.6...
  • Replied in Diffraction
    http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/diffraction.htm Compact cameras with lousy lenses can return reduced image quality, especially in the corners. Pocketable cameras have small apertures, not small...
  • Here is yet another example of how the Scene Idiot Modes really are programmed by idiots.  Why is it using an exposure time of 1/30, and then at night it picks an exposure time of 1/60 at ISO Speed...
  • Maybe it's a good thing that the viewfinder and its cup-relief is so bad, almost nobody uses it instead of the flip-out LCD screen. It was never comfortable putting my face up to that style of...

  • The UV filter needs to be in front of the polariser.  Why would anybody put the UV filter behind the polariser?
  • There are many examples of dSLRs being used to make movie recordings on professional stages or to make a documentary.  The difference between these examples and you is that they start with a...
  • Replied in Don't be cheap
    It's expected if you bought a throwaway tripod that was bundled "free" with the camera purchase.  It probably says "Made in China" and doesn't have a recognised brand name.  At least you found the...
  • You must have some clue if you are a domain name administrator!  Are you mapping through an A-Record or CNAME?  Have you contacted your domain registrar yet about this procedure?
