  • 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 ...
  • Configure the camera settings, which are mostly part of your Custom Functions. You want a slower focus sensitivity, which is the delay imposed before the auto-focus moves to another target.  Set ...
  • What a "better" result?  If you want less noise, you need a lower (such as ISO Speed 400) sensitivity.  If you want faster exposures, you need a higher sensitivity. If you have the time to do Dark ...
  • It's a stop-down, to reduce the relative size of the lens aperture by one f/stop. Stepping-down relates to transformers. https://www.electrical4u.com/step-down-transformers/ Auto-focus is not ...
  • It's likely the expanded ISO Speed value, so for ISO Speed 100 the camera records at ISO Speed 200 and then applies an Exposure Value adjustment of -1 to the raw file. https://www.dpreview.com/foru ...
  • If the scene is that dark, I'd use a tripod or a flash. Exposure Compensation alters the metered exposure value, exchanging one of the three exposure variables (Aperture, Exposure Time, ...
  • If you're paying for the Adobe software, why are you not using it for RAW image processing?  JPEG files are good for rapid distribution and viewing on a variety of different devices.  You want to ...
  • There are no silent, mechanical lenses.  Every lens makes some noise when the lens elements are moved, which is most noticeable when the camera is recording audio through an internal microphone.  ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    These things that you're mentioning (One Point Focus, Aperture priority, camera's trickery, APS-C crop sensor, full frame equiv to a 50mm) are irrelevant. The depth-of-field is determined by the ...
  • You need a print shop that prints in the 4:5.3 aspect ratio. https://www.snapfish.com/photo-gift/true-digital-print-details If you insist on 4:6 prints and there's no option in the camera to crop, ...
  • A flash gun with automatic TTL metering would help. You should avoid that Green Square Idiot Mode, as you've experienced, because the programming even for an expensive camera can be quite idiotic. ...
  • I've run a tripod-aware IS system in a strong wind for an exposure of approximately twenty seconds, and it held the frame despite the camera noticeably moving, but it won't work as well if there's ...
  • The 100-400 would be better for landscapes and wildlife. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-100-400mm-f-4.5-5.6-L-IS-II-USM-Lens.aspx You should also consider the excellent ...
  • The Canon image stabilisation can counter movement from wind during some longer exposures, but it won't work well if there are added vibrations from the tripod on top of that.  The first problem ...
  • You can plug your camera into an external power source, right?  Insert your electrical adapter into the battery compartment and run it from an external battery or utility power if you're worried ...
