  • What attracts attention is someone who looks different.  Tourists are more-likely to be the victims of crime than locals, particularly because it's known that tourists are likely to be carrying ...
  • There are some nicely-pocketable cameras on the market, with a nice zoom range and lots of features, except the one feature that would be most important when the camera is used outdoors.  Why is ...
  • The bright objects around the planet are the moons of Saturn.  Mimas is nearest to the rings, obscured partially by the glow of the planet.  Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, and Rhea comprise the group ...
  • Replied in Use a flash
    When you want photography in such dim lighting conditions, you need: (1) Manual exposure mode (2) A monopod, tripod, or some other method of stabilising the camera
  • The Auto ISO feature is useful for mixed-brightness conditions, such as when going from bright sun to shade during a panning motion.  Before Auto ISO, the ISO Speed was the one part of the ...
  • The meter in the tutorial example likely isn't the light meter; it's the Exposure Compensation set to -2.  The light meter indicator activates when you switch to the Manual exposure mode, and the ...
  • Replied in Accuracy
    The polar alignment, having the mount pointed at Polaris, is most important.  The two-object alignment increases the tracking accuracy, and additional objects for alignment located in different ...

  • Remove the SD card from the camera, insert it into a card reader, and copy the files from the SD card to another storage device.
  • Replied in Canon SX540
    Camera technology does not become obsolete every year. Even the marketing shouldn't be suggesting to you that it would become obsolete. The camera from ten years ago still takes photos the same ...
  • Don't fly with anybody that measures luggage in terms of the weight of a single bag, and instead use a carrier that lets you put the camera stuff under the plane and take it out yourself, or send ...
  • The prices for some items at some retailers may appear to go back up, but that's only temporary as the supply of products continues to be delivered.  If you wait, the same and newer items will be ...
  • As I suspected, this guy is a scammer. He can't even use a second battery grip unless he has a second camera that's compatible with it or he's trying to resell it.  If he's trying to resell it, ...
  • Replied in Some problems
    The Nikon MB-D17 isn't a battery pack. It's a battery grip, of which the camera can only accept one. There would be no $450 savings, as you would only make money on the deal if you sold the second ...
  • You want an ultra wide-angle lens for group portraits, landscapes, and constricted spaces.  You also want a telephoto lens with an f/2.8 or faster aperture. You want a Canon-compatible lens, not a ...
  • The 100 μ_rad destabilization value means that the gimbal can suppress vibrations such that the resultant movement is less than 100 μ_radians or 0.006 degrees.  It's better to have less vibration, ...
  • The RAW file cannot be displayed as a visible photograph.  What you have is a preview image, but it's not a RAW file converted to be a photograph.  If that's the image that your RAW converter ...
  • Depending on what you're photographing, such as the sky, black-and-white recording is better. Of course, you need a black-and-white camera to do that. https://photographingspace.com/colour-vs-mono- ...
  • The problem is the 1/4000 exposure time, but at least you used ISO Speed 100 because you may have a way to fix the exposure.  You need the NEF files that you hopefully retained.  Load the NEF ...
  • The Daylight Saving indicator usually changes the time immediately, unless your camera has a calendar with a location feature.  If you can set the time zone, it's likely that it has a location ...
