  • Replied in Remove lens cap?
    Have you tried removing your lens cap?  Forgetting that is what causes this problem for me.
  • The original size refers to the original pixel resolution that you uploaded.  All photos uploaded will be "original size" until the server can create other sizes such as "small" and "medium" that ...
  • Avoid cheap lens bundles that are often useless in difficult lighting conditions and have weak build quality.  Some retailers like to push these lens bundles onto uneducated consumers who believe ...
  • Your clock battery is probably depleted or not installed. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/42034601
  • http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-24-70mm-f-4-L-IS-USM-Lens-Review.aspx Consider the necessity of the ultra-wide focal lengths for subjects such as group portraits.  Are you using ...
  • The equivalent is to remove the battery while the camera is operating, while also bypassing any safety mechanism that deactivates the camera if the battery door is opened.  This can cause numerous ...
  • The DPR search engine didn't find it, probably because the other guy only threw out a link instead of putting a description in the message body or the subject line, and the many replies also ...
  • Here's another incident involving a paranoid freak in Melbourne. The antagonist reportedly took a photo of a person who had a phone-camera and made a publicly-advertised claim that he was a ...
  • No such error message appears to exist. Are you sure that the message isn't "This function is not selectable in the current shooting mode"? Have you tried reverting your settings to their defaults?
  • Replied in Yes
    The aperture refers to the physical size of the lens objective, which is stated in units such as centimetres or inches, or as a focal length (in millimetres) with the f/stop value.  The relative ...
  • Replied in Don't overexpose
    You're overexposing.  Don't overexpose.  If you're trying to expose for the room, there needs to be sufficient light available from that candle, other similar light sources, or a flash.
  • I'd like a 300-800 f/5.6 with weather-resistance and an image stabiliser.  I'd also consider a 200-500 f/2.8 with weather-resistance and an image stabiliser.
  • 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 ...
