I find a short shutter release and timer on the camera captures a clear image. Take several different shots between 125-300 ISO and see how they compare Captured 26.01.2015, lens 40-150mm Olympus on an Olympus PL7, tripod used 1/125 ISO 200 f/5.6 on a tripod. The image is cropped. No post processing nor filters used. Location Bergen Norway

The sensitivity tells you how much signal you're going to get from your camera module for a given light level: specifically, if you expose your module to 1 lux for 1 second, it will generate 5000 electrons. (There's probably some spectral dependence there which is hopefully covered in more detail in the full datasheet). The dark current tells you how much ...

You might direct the complainant to http://edgerton-digital-collections.org/docs-life/wartime-strobe, describing a strobe powerful enough to light a mountain -- so big, it was carried in a B-18 bomber. A photo of the strobe gear is at http://blog.invention.smithsonian.org/2013/11/04/seeing-in-the-dark-aerial-recon-in-wwii/. Of course, that still might not ...

This one is sort of a frequent question. I have 2 photos on my computer, one taken with a flash, and one taken on a tripod; the actual subject is a castle on top of a hill taken from another hill somewhere about 500 meters from the castle. That is what I show, and next I ask do I need to go into GNs etc. Most folks are satisfied with the demonstration.

I would say something along the line that in order to have a well-exposed picture, you should think of the camera like a bathtub, with light instead of water. In order to have a pleasant bath, you need enough water to cover you without overflowing the tub. Optionally, you can shrink the bathtub, so you need less water to fill it up, but you'll have a less ...

I would direct her to the user manual that would explain details such as the guide number of the flash and the effective range of the flash. The user manual would also probably explain about enabling higher ISO, and may even mention recommendations to use a tripod for long exposures to avoid camera shake

In a nutshell, what I did was explain to her that the camera has a sensor, which is sensitive to light (as film is for a film camera) That this image sensor ultimately records the light that passes through the lens and is projected onto it. In other words, when there is sufficient light, the camera does this with ease. When there is a lack of light in a ...

First and foremost, when it comes to astrophotography, to improve SNR (and, thus, improve signal) - stack! Stack, stack, stack. Total integration time, the total exposure time across all the sub frames you gather, is of paramount importance to improving image quality in astrophotography. Most beginners shirk on getting the necessary minimum amount of ...

Last night 03/01/2015 trying my cannon 650d with tmount onto scope 1/4000sec auto ISO. only had a few minutes of no clouds. Messed about with filters in photoshop.

I took this shot the other night, hand held using a Nikon DF with a very old Nikon 500mm F8 Mirror lens. ISO 400, 1/500 sec, -3 stops on the exposure compensating dial.

If you want to capture the moon, ignoring the rest of the scene, use spot metering, with the moon being the spot. See if your camera lets you move the spot around in the frame. If not, move the camera so that the moon is at the centre of the frame, meter the scene, and then move your camera to get the framing you want, and take the photo. If you want to ...

I've recently been trying out a Fujifilm S1 bridge camera (I have P&S cameras and DSLRs) on lunar shots and went through some of the in-camera processing modes to see what they would yield. On the S1 there is an "advanced" mode called "low-key" that works really well on the moon at almost all phases, unless you're trying to capture earthshine. Normally ...
