  • Replied in Which lenses?
    There are better dSLRs for your intended purpose than the smallest and cheapest that you're considering.  The more important issue is which lenses you intend to use.
  • It looks like an internal reflection inside the lens that you were using, a problem often associated with cheap, small-aperture zoom lenses. Another problem is that your exposure was too long.  If ...
  • You'll need a lens or several lenses that cover the focal lengths from 100-500 mm, and with a minimum of an f/4 relative aperture.  Expect to spend at least £5000 if you're buying, and £500 if ...
  • Replied in That's obvious
    That only applies if the lens remains f/5.6 during the auto-focusing.  The camera obviously won't refuse to focus if the camera is told to take a photo with a smaller aperture, but what's not ...
  • Replied in No
    No.  You need a maximum effective aperture of f/5.6 or faster for the auto-focus to work.
  • Replied in Yes
    I have a process that involves transferring the memory cards at the end of each day or individual event to a hard drive connected through a laptop.  The data is then evaluated as soon as possible ...
  • If you like it, use it.  If someone is asking for the conversion, do it.  I made a black-and-white conversion for a portrait for myself recently.  It depends on what someone wants.  Sometimes the ...
  • It happens when the camera or lens isn't focusing, delivering the expected image quality, or responding to inputs as necessary.  You look around at the people you're working next to, and you ...
  • Any Canon EF lens will work with any Canon EF camera. Any Canon EF-S lens will work with any Canon camera that supports EF-S lenses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EF_lens_mount http://en.wikip ...
  • Replied in Buy pre-owned
    Try buying one of the many usable, pre-owned cameras and using that until your intentions and skills demand a better camera.  There's very little difference in capabilities between a dSLR camera ...
  • You should focus on the face if possible.  If that is not possible, stand further away from the person and use an aperture of f/2.8 or smaller.
  • After several decades, it should be hoped that the photographer and advancing technology can take better photos, which could make the old photos look bad, for the same reason that many photos from ...
  • A Picture To Show You Clearly The Effects of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO On Images: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifestyle/picture-show-you-clearly-the-effects-aperture-shutter-speed-and-is ...
  • Why doesn't the JPEG go directly from the processing room to your networked server, to be retrieved from there?  I'd guess that your phone is compressing the files.  Photos should not be sent ...
  • Replied in No
    Photography requires knowledge and skills that cannot be easily taught.  There is rarely a single answer for "best quality" without knowing your specific circumstances.  You need to find someone ...
  • Without knowing other information, including the exact lighting conditions, the position of the camera, the positions of other objects relative to the camera, the stabilisation techniques applied, ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    When you want to reduce motion blur, you want the fastest exposure time available.  Making the background blurry has little to do with the relative aperture number.  Without understanding ...
  • Only one point can be in-focus.  Everything around that point will be out-of-focus.  Decreasing the aperture size towards the diffraction limit only causes the image to appear to have more ...
  • There's buyer protection available through amazon.com.  If for some reason you're not happy with the merchant because of price or unusual statements, move onto the next one.  If you want to lower ...
  • Replied in Online where?
    None of them have a Website?  Are these merchants on amazon.com?
