  • For most situations involving slow moving subjects, P mode with vivid picture seting and your prefered WB seting(i use cloudy for daylight pics) works well.
  • The image was taken by fully pressing the shutter button, but the camera did not have enough time to prefocus. I`ve seen this happen especially when the photographer is moving, like in a vehicle ...
  • Replied in Pure speculation
    70 years ago people said that in 2020 there will be flying cars. 10 years ago people said said that in 5 years we will have all sorts of miracle batteries, from the ones than can be refilled with ...
  • Replied in No way
    Keep your cameras and use them until you lose them again or break them. The IQ and shooting experience are 97% identical on all rx100 generations. The only upgrade making sense here would be to ...
  • Replied in Any older dslr?
    I think a basic dslr like say a canon 40D is the simplest way of producing a digital image, other than a phone.
  • I guess the memory card could be corrupted or faulty, try formatting it via pc. For good measure, try another card with the camera. If you don't have one, look for a cheap similar working camera on ...
  • Not worth the risk buying it unless you pay something like 50 quid for it. A working a6000 with kit lens goes for around £300, that's a fair price and very affordable in western Europe.
  • Mirorless cameras are small, but operating a dslr adds a rewarding feeling . Plus, they are very cheap now and quality lenses have become more affordable too. The best time to buy a certain ...
  • Replied in No
    A quality sharp lens will be sharper at f2.8 than a kit lens at whatever f number. AF will be quicker and more precise, better durability etc. Besides, there are plenty of situations where shooting ...
  • Your compact camera is not a dslr and should not be used as a dslr would, i have never used f8 in my life. On a compact f8 is not needed and probably degrades the final image via things like ...
  • Replied in Upgrade
    Sell the defective camera on ebay and recover some of the loss.
  • Do a reset, format the card and try again using A, P and M mode and no zoom. If the 1 second delay persists and you are not shooting in a environment that may slow down AF, your camera might have ...
  • In most cases dealing with 18 year olds only results in frustration. Just avoid them. As for lowballers, i am one, but i would never bother writing such a long argument. Just make an firm, honest ...
  • According to your logic, every mistake we make represents a normal brain function. But i have to remind you that the main function of the brain is to keep the organism alive, in which case mistakes ...
  • For some reason dslr images age well and are easier to correct than images coming from smaller sensors. The images don't look old at all.
  • Honestly a phone or the rx100 are much handier to have and easier to use than a m43 camera. Also there is no comparison between the olympus 14-42mm kit lens and the lens on the rx100, the latter is ...
  • It's an old camera and you have been shaking it a lot during your trips. Don't worry about it, keep using the camera as normal. It looks to be a loosened ribbon, you can actually take off the back ...
  • Thanks. Here`s a couple of samples from the EF 80-200. For every 1 sharpish image i had to waste 9 more because of the extra slow AF motor.
  • Replied in Sharp
    Looking very good actually, thank you for the sample! The lens with the 500D is very cheap, basically the body comes free. Whether they work as they should is another matter. The lens is the II ...
  • Can`t be worse than the dreaded EF 8-200 lens, my first ever dslr lens. It was a nightmare, took 5 minutes to get a shot in focus. But even with that abomination on the old 400D i did manage to ...
