  • That's because you have a shutter that goes Click... click... click... instead of Click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click.  You need a better camera with a faster shutter, a deep ...
  • The background blurring is caused by the physical size of the lens aperture and the distance between the lens and the objects being photographed. There's nothing "automatic" about it. Zooming out ...
  • You can compress the JPEG file that's recorded, which will reduce the file sizes and put less of a burden on your camera's memory buffer.
  • What is a "crop sensor" to you?  If it's a 1.5X crop from a 35-mm frame, the 15 mm lens has a wider field-of-view than a 24 mm lens on a 35-mm camera.  There's a 1.6X, 1.3X, Micro Four Thirds ...
  • The problem with Eye Control Focus is the assumption that the photographer is looking at what he wants to be in-focus, but that is often not the case, particularly when the scene is changing...

  • Replied in Need longer lens
    The problem is that these sorts of rooms demand long focal lengths. There are no box positions around the sides as you would expect to find in a regular concert hall. So, you either go up front on ...
  • I also got that advice on the Internet forums, but it was wrong.  What they didn't mention was that a blurry photo is not better than a noisy photo, and that you need to use the ISO Speed that is ...
  • It's hard to use a touchscreen when your face is pressed against the camera.  If the touchscreen isn't dedicated to an important function, such as the selection of auto-focus points, that would ...
  • Replied in It's awful
    There was the photo, and then you ruined it.  Why did you alter the photo? Also, why did you do stock photography in harsh lighting conditions?  Why did you use a cheap camera?  Is that a person ...
  • The camera metered for the background.  Metering for the black surface is also bad because the exposure will be blown, and the white surface of the object could be an overexposed blob.  A flash ...

  • What is the "photoshop raw" format? A RAW image file contains the pre-decision data, and is not viewable as a photograph.  There are lossless formats such as TIFF and PSD.  Are you saving to a PSD ...
  • How did you determine that the file wasn't damaged before the transfer?  Did you successfully convert a RAW file to JPEG, or are you looking at the embedded JPEG preview image and assuming that ...
  • The "auto" mode doesn't mean "correct for present conditions."  In fact, "auto" is known as Green Square Idiot Mode because such "auto" modes often make incorrect decisions about the exposure and ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Your embedded EXIF data shows an exposure time of 1/6 for the first example, and 1/50 for the second example. An exposure time of 1/6 is very likely to cause a shaky photo, worse if you are not ...
  • Replied in It's shaky
    I would guess that you were trying to do photography without a tripod, without a stable tripod, or you were not giving the camera enough time to dissipate vibrations after you released the shutter ...
  • A "speedlight" is the flash head. Bounce Flash is a lighting technique that involves bouncing light from a light source, such as a flash head, off of a wall or a ceiling that is reflective. The ...
  • It is out-of-focus. You should notice the coloured fringe on the edge, indicating that you are out-of-focus. This problem is easily detected through your Live View monitor.  You bought the gadget, ...
  • Replied in Ask the owner
    The first thing to do is to ask the owner, not guess based on vague information. If you don't know what you're doing and you can't explain what's happening, you can make the situation worse. I'd ...
  • Replied in Some guesses
    The Live View monitor is not enabled, the video mode is not enabled, and you are pressing a button that isn't assigned to the function you've assumed it is instead of the normal Menu button.
