Re: Difficult Spider Shot with SX40 HS

Looking at the web on the right side it looks like a big part of the problem is motion blur or camera shake.

The horizontal threads are reasonably well defined; but the vertical ones are smeared - indicating horizontal camera shake (or perhaps the web was being blown in the breeze).

1/40th of a second is probably too slow at full telephoto zoom without a tripod (or a lot of luck).

Try increasing the ISO to get a faster shutter speed - or an external flash.
