Yes that's what my older camera did, but he EOS-M shows the effect on exposure in the liveview, WYSIWYG I guess. Maybe there is a setting to turn this off? If there is I can't find it...

comment How much light do I need for handheld product photography in a lightbox
I'm willing to try things. I have a used a camera on top of a piece of 2x1 sitting in a flower pot of concrete. But what is wrong with handheld? Am I being unrealistic?

That kinds seems obvious now that you mention it.

comment How much light do I need for handheld product photography in a lightbox
OK so if I'm understanding this correctly, according to the article quoted, if I want an EV of 10, I need 2560lux coming from the scene. So that puts a lower bound on the amount of light needed? So I need 2560lumens/sqm going INTO the lightbox as a minimum?

OK, how much light is enough to properly expose at 1/100s @f4 ISO100

comment Why is my Canon Digital IXUS/ELPH making distorted photos with purple cast
This was a great camera in it's heyday and I took thousands of great photos when I was travelling. Just a pity it can't last forever.

Enough light will make handheld sharp also, the question is how much is enough.

comment How much light do I need for handheld product photography in a lightbox
I am using a tripod currently, and its working fairly well. But I've not got much room so I am constantly setting it up and taking it down so it's not in the way. Also I find that it takes a little bit of fiddling to adjust the camera position. I figure if I can get a handheld setup I could get through things much quicker.
