Re: why is this not sharp ? please help me

Hello Philippe,

The sony alpha A77 and A99 are highly advanced and innovative picture taking machines, and according to GARY FONG this camera can do things that both the Canon and Nikon cameras cannot do at this moment in time. Concerning your photograph and question, here is a link where GARY FONG deals precisely with what you are asking. -------- how to setup the camera, and the technique used to get the shot (shots ). On this video beginning from 11:40 until 16:50.


On this second video GARY FONG deals only with your specific question.


Note : Children can be very active and can move suddenly, even if the movement might be very small. To get sharp photos of children with a lens set to F1.4 ( very narrow DOF ) the EYES MUST BE NAILED 100%. Therefore I would think that this is ONE of the reasons that he uses multi-shot setup rather than depending on one single shot.
