Two of the photos I examined were taken at f/13. By f/11, considerable degradation from diffraction has set in and only gets worse at f/13. Please see: Using a smaller aperture requires a longer exposure time, in your case 1/60th second. At a focal length of 85mm, blur from camera shake will be ...


On the Nikon Cameras, the best setting for NON Moving objects ( buildings, flowers, Macro, Portraits) will be the AF-S mode.( Singe Focus Mode) The camera will lock onto a single object and remain focused until the finger is released. result will be a sharp Picture. From previous experience, I have noticed that the Nikon Cameras are set to AF-A as a ...


As noted in Nikon's knowledgebase, the D60 supports SDHC cards, but implicitly not SDXC (as SDXC is never mentioned in the page). This isn't surprising as the D60 was released in January 2008 and the SDXC standard was announced in January 2009. The SDHC standard has a largest possible size of 32 GB, hence your 64 GB card must be an SDXC card and is not ...


In DPReview's tests (see the "Continuous mode" section), they were able to get a shooting rate of 2.5 JPEGs per second (or 1.4 RAWs per second) even in "buffer full" mode, which is the rate achievable for essentially indefinite shooting. Or put another way, you should be able to shoot a frame every 0.4s for ever - at least until your card fills up anyway. Do ...


The maximum frame-rate is quoted for the internal buffer, so you wont get enough frames for much of a time-lapse. However, if you intend to produce a video, you can shoot for much longer by lowering the resolution. 8 and 4 MP are more than is needed for full 1080p HD and therefore will give you lattitude when producing a time-lapse for anything other than an ...


The six frame limit of the buffer is for RAW files, but 22 frames for JPEG. That shouldn't be a problem is you're shooting 1 fps in JPEG, but 5 fps could be a different story.


No; digital files can't work that way. If the card were corrupt, you might see images jumbled together, but it would look like this at best, not a smooth overlay. Additionally, the filenames aren't really "slots". They're just identifiers; if they are reused, the same value appears in the "index" in the filesystem, but the data could be anywhere. It's ...


No, this is not possible. A digital medium is not like a cassette tape. If you have a double exposure, there must be some other explanation. Maybe your camera has this function which you activated inadvertently.


Paintshop Pro is for making pixel edits to individual photos (à la Photoshop). Aftershot Pro is for organising and making non-destructive edits to RAW files (à la Lightroom).


I don't know that camera, but this looks like a classic case of focal plane shutter artifacts with rapidly changing light. The output of the fluorescent tubes changes significantly over each 1/2 line cycle, which is at 120 Hz or 100 Hz depending on what part of the world you are in. At short exposure settings, only a part of the picture is exposed at any ...
