  • Such strange lines are an indication of file corruption that is caused by a bad memory card or something wrong with the camera. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59052691
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Get a faster-aperture lens (170 mm f/6.3 is like a joke, when you should be using 170 mm f/2.8) Get a better camera that provides less-noisy images, after you get an appropriate lens Demand better ...
  • It seems that you are already tethering. Is there the same delay when the camera is not tethered, writing directly to a memory card?  If not, there's a bottleneck between the camera and the ...
  • Have you tried using a faster memory card?  Have you considered using a tethering technique to export your camera's images to a regular screen?
  • Yes, camera-shake can cause unexpected blurriness in your photos.  A slow shutter and mirror can also cause unexpected delays when taking multiple frames at different angles, resulting in ...
  • If the LED is flickering, yes, that would interfere with the auto-focus, but the more noticeable problem is that the flickering would also interfere with the exposure, requiring a longer exposure ...
  • What are the lighting conditions, in terms of lumens or photographic exposure? What are the distance requirements, in terms of meters or feet? You will likely need to have at least a 70-200 mm ...
  • Replied in Copy not import
    Copy the files, don't import them.  The import process is likely converting the RAW files to JPEG automatically, based on some preset JPEG processing parameters. Decrease the Contrast setting and ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Some suggestions: (1) Skills take many years to build, but unnecessary struggling with cheap cameras and lenses slows progress and increases costs
  • If it works and feels comfortable to hold, it's good enough as you have no other stated requirements.  I'm not sure why a photography course requires such a camera, considering that the cost of ...
  • Use the centre auto-focus point only, and use the One Shot mode because AI Servo can be unreliable unless the movement of an object is limited to one direction; refocus and take multiple frames.  ...
  • It's a nice and straightforward photo-sharing service, when it's accepting uploads and if you don't need to store more than 100 GB of photos.
  • Although the recording of variable colour would be better with a longer exposure, you will likely obtain more sharpness in your photo by using a shorter exposure time because of potential ...
  • Maybe because the majority of consumers put photos in places that require no more than 2 megapixels. Photographers were making billboards with 6 megapixels.  Movies made more than twenty years ago ...
  • Sports photography doesn't work well when using the point-and-shoot plan.  You need to apply skills to focus, frame, and get the photos that you want instead of taking thousands of blurry photos ...
  • Your example appears to be front-focused.  This is a problem that I've often experienced with cheaper cameras under certain lighting and distance conditions.  I was very frustrated recently when I ...
  • To compensate for a bright background, you need to increase the foreground exposure.  If you want both the bright background and the dark foreground to be exposed properly, you need an assistant ...
  • Is your camera "simulating" the exposure that it wants, but then outputs what is provided by your exposure parameters? Is that a RAW file that you are loading into iPhoto?  Are you sure that you ...
  • The 20D was marketed as semi-professional because it included features that were expected of a more-expensive camera.  It wasn't a 1D, but it was better than the 10D that it had replaced.  The 20D ...
  • Your example doesn't appear to have a focus problem.  If you want to demand more and consistent accuracy than this, you need to be on a tripod, you need to take multiple shots to compensate for ...
