The electronic shutter speed is limited by the rate at which the camera reads the image data from the sensor. For most CMOS sensors, and therefore most regular DSLRs, the camera reads image data from it progressively, rather than reading all the image data instantaneously. As it reads, it resets the data held by those pixels. If this process takes, for ...


You are speaking of the X speed setting following Bulb setting as you go to the end of the dial for very slow shutter speeds. This X setting means the normal X flash sync speed, specifically that this X shutter position setting will use whatever sync speed you have set in menu E1. This is mentioned in the manual at the E1 menu. If you see 1/250, then your ...


OP: There is more to how the camera works than you described. The exposure automation (for example, aperture preferred mode lets metering set the shutter speed and the Auto ISO value) is based on ambient (any metered camera settings are NOT about flash). NONE of this about flash. The TTL flash has to work into whatever ISO and aperture it discovers ...


I don't really know what you're asking about. If you want to capture sharp and clear images of moving paper, its speed isn't really relevant. What's important is rather the angular velocity of the details you want to capture. If the paper is far away it would be no problem to take a picture. A more detailed shot of the paper could end up blurry (the angular ...


The pictures which you see on the "model portfolio photographer" website feature exactly the types of shots you are seeking to create. They were photographed by me, using a very simple technique, in all different conditions. Camera must be tripod mounted. Use ND filters if conditions are bright- work on the sweet-spot aperture of your lens, with shutter ...


Take multiple photos, including the background without the subject present. Expose differently to fit each element. Combine in Photoshop. You can also spend more time playing with different settings when the foreground subject is not present, without worrying about keeping her interested. With a tripod and near-perfect alignment, blending layers is easy. ...


Use the ambient light to illuminate the waterfall. Use a fairly powerful flash to illuminate your human subject. The quick duration of the flash will freeze her, especially if she remains fairly still over the long exposure. The narrow aperture you will need to properly expose with the flash will also give better depth of field so that the water fall is also ...


Nikon have free Nikon ViewNX-i:


Your camera saves this information, which we call "metadata" (because it is data about the data captured in the photo itself — one level beyond, or meta), in every file. There are many utilities which can read and display this. I'm not aware of any software designed for photography which doesn't — that'd include Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, Picassa, and ...


At least on windows, you can see a lot of EXIF info in the file properties, details tab.


Once you take a photo, you can view Photo Information by clicking the Play button on the back of your D3200 and clicking the Arrow either up or down. More information can be found on page 98 of your manual. Aperture, Shutter speed, ISO, Focal Length, Focus Mode, Flash Mode, White Balance, and much more is all available via this menu.


(I think) Every digital photo has aditional data stored on it besides the image itself. That is called Exif data (Exchangeable image file format). A Dslr camera can shoot to a raw or jpg image file, and both formats include this data. Smartphones and compact cameras most likely shoot only in jpg, but it includes this information too. When you manipulate ...


There are many tools which can provide you this information: Lightroom, xnview, (probably) any graphic editor. Also any EXIF tool can provide you this info (check exiftool, its free and very good) P.S. For sure there is Nikon instrument, which can provide you such information, but I am not Nikon shooter :)
