  • Replied in Spot metering
    You need to set the option to connect the spot-meter to the selected auto-focus point, and use the spot metering mode.
  • Noise reduction shouldn't interfere with the shutter, effectively making it quieter. Yes: Shutter release > Shutter close > Image to memory > Image processing No: Shutter release > Image to memory ...
  • Replied in Silent mode?
    I'd guess that you've activated a silent mode. Check your manual; I don't know what "omd em1" means.
  • I'd use an active stabiliser. Are you using a gyroscope for stabilisation? If not, long exposures won't work well, so you'd need to increase your film speed and delay the start of your exposures. h ...
  • Replied in Underexposed
    That's underexposed. Sunny 16 Rule! http://www.dpreview.com/articles/5280644037/blood-moon-eclipse-night-of-april-14-15 A tripod will help with sharpness and focusing.
  • A Nikon camera that is set to the AF-C focusing mode will not stop seeking focus until you tell it to stop.  The focus confirmation light will not appear in the viewfinder unless the camera is ...
  • The important context changes the suggestions.  That would be a fleeting moment, but some black-and-white filtering and shadow enhancement can help with the exposure.  It looks like you tried to ...
  • When submitting work, it should have a location, time stamp, the primary reason for being there, the specific relevance of the photograph to you, and preferably the names of the persons featured ...
  • What is your histogram indicating?  Increase the exposure until you have obtained the desired brightness. The light meter only provides an estimate of a proper exposure, which also depends on your ...
  • A 35 mm camera is probably the least expensive format. Pick something that feels comfortable to you. I'd want a Canon 1V or a Nikon F6.  The hard part is film development, because it's expensive ...
  • Replied in Some settings
    Live View: On Silent Shooting: Mode 2 Image Stabilization: On Auto-focus: Off Exposure parameters: Av: 4.0 Tv: 1/160 or faster Your position should be within 10 metres of the performer, and you ...
  • Replied in It's broken
    It means something is broken.  If it doesn't even give you a clue, there's no way to know what's wrong without disassembling it, and you'd need to be experienced with Nikon electronics to fix ...
  • Replied in A cannon
    A cannon is better, because.
  • The most obvious answer is to set the camera to 3000K, since that's the stated colour temperature of the light, and make minor adjustments from that point.
  • Of course it's a "full version" as opposed to it being a "trial version" of the software, but the problem is that it's an OEM license.  The benefit to buying the OEM items is that there is a ...
  • Replied in Too vague
    What feature?  Regardless of your vagueness, cameras have options because there is no one correct answer for any one photographer in any particular situation.  You select the best combination of ...
  • It's a disc that may have been bundled with another product.  Resellers buy those bundles and then repackage the software for sale at a discount.  The registration code sometimes has "OEM" in it, ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Use a flash to eliminate shadows on the person's face Position the camera so that it is facing directly away from the light source Wait for a better time of day Use a reflector Use a better ...
  • Nikon 50mm F1.2 - Manual focus confirmation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8zXpdGQaaE
  • Your lens must be refocused as its focal length changes, unless you have a parfocal lens. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parfocal_lens
