In the D3200, the aperture cannot be changed while in live mode. All the above applies as long as the camera is not in live mode.


If it is available to buy, take a Baader Astrosolar film or similar, which you can buy in every photography store. Then stick the film as here in the picture with two tapes:


Try the 'selfie pose' on your smartphone when you take a picture of the eclipse. It is a safe way to look at the sun and it won't damage the camera. ;)


Got the same idea but I'm lucky enough to take day off. I made some tests last Sunday and I will make a few adjustments Friday, but after gathering some more info on the net I will probably go for • Manual focus and manual settings • F between 7.1 and 9 • Speed 1/8000 or 1/6400 • Aperture 16mm (full format) • ISO 200 I'm interested in the landscape but ...


Use an unexposed and developed roll of film as a filter. It won't be great. The problem is the camera, this filter is legit. Here's an example of what you might get... Eclipse 2012 Behind Clouds (Colorado, USA): https://youtu.be/QkbIn0e8_Rs You can also use a welding shield but trying to buy a permanent one right before an eclipse is impossible. The ...


It does look a bit like a tilt-shift lens, but I wouldn't be 100% positive. I'd say it was taken with a 50mm/<1.2 lens on a full-frame sensor. With a 35mm and an APS-C sensor you would need to be closer to the subject in order to achieve that field of depth. A flash might have been used, but I think you do not need any for that kind of shot.


I'm going to take a wildass blind guess, but doing an image search on Google which led to WrongRob's Instagram and then his website, it looks like he shoots with a Leica M, which has a full frame sensor in it. So my guess would be that the thin depth of field may have been created with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 lens. Whatever apertures he's using, if he's ...


If you want shallow depth of field, you need 3 things: wide aperture, long focal length, large sensor (eg. full 35mm frame or 120/220 film). Out of those, only aperture can be varied freely, because both sensor size and focal length show on angle of view, changing your composition. Longer focal length and larger sensor somewhat cancel each other. This sadly ...


The lens used would have a reasonably large aperture (low F number). This gives the effect of a relatively narrow depth of field and also allows more light to get to the sensor, making it easier to capture a correctly exposed image. The focal length used would be in the 'normal' range (somewhere around 50mm for Full Frame, or 30mm on APS-C), as opposed to ...


The self-timer on a Canon dSLR has two options, 2 or 10 seconds. 4 seconds is an unusual delay - are you using Live View mode by any chance? That would account for the delay as full Live View focusing is much slower than in non-Live View modes. Putting the camera in normal non-Live View mode, setting the AF mode to One-Shot and drive mode to Single should ...
