  • Feisol 3442 will be your best choice. You will also need an arca-Swiss style ball head and mounting plates to secure to the bottom of your camera. Neglecting the head and mounting plates may lead ...
  • HI complaint is that live view is not providing a faithful representation based on his exposure settings. I am saying that under the best of conditions, live view cannot fully represent his chosen ...
  • I think we may have discussed a related point in a previous thread. Your statement "...A histogram does not give me the same info a proper live view would. Am I missing a setting, is it not ...
  • While it is phrased negatively for effect, I hope you will take as a constructive opinion: The basic premise of your post is wrong. Your problem, if there really is one, is that you are ...
  • You need a wider option than 35-100 but this is an excellent lens. Take it with you. You also need a tripod. Then you can use your lenses in early morning light without restriction
  • Dear Fallen Leaf, Don't despair. In all likelihood the solutions to your problems are simple. Start by checking the scene in the electronic viewfinder (EVF). This should be sharp when the image is ...
  • I read a few of the threads. I hope that is enough to contribute to the discussion. Many years ago, I had a Velbon tripod to which I mounted a Canon 20D and a 135 mm lens, using a generic mounting ...
  • You did not say, but I assume you are using a "generic" arca swiss  style plate to mount your camera. Many years ago, I had the same experience you reported. The best solution is to use a mounting ...
  • I gave you the solution to the problem. The Fourier approach is for patterns that effect the whole image. It will not work on images where the defects are in random locations. If you use a tripod ...
  • The Canon EF 100-400 will challenge all but the best (meaning expensive) light weight tripods, particularly if it is windy.  If you are not going to be carrying the set up any distance, you can ...
  • This is a very well known effect, due to movement of the camera and/or the subject. It is the limitation of the hi res mode.  As a practical matter, the hi res mode requires the use of a solid ...
  • I am sure that with more experience, both of the major problems you report will be overcome. Let's take the 2nd question first, the under exposure. While the EM1's electronic viewfinder is very ...
  • It is not clear that it is worth fooling around with this tripod. The issue at hand is the platform for mounting your camera. Can it be removed? If so, can a ball head be mounted? There could also ...
  • Lake Tekkapo. Not too far from Mt Cook. Shoot from the road to the observatory
  • Except for a few very specialized situations, a separate light meter is not needed. The most important thing you can do to achieve "perfect" exposures is to understand the use of the histogram ...
