I tried to use the "Sunny 16 rule" but it didn't work, why?

The "Sunny Sixteen" rule applies to things that are lit by the sun. In the picture you took using the rule, things which are lit directly by the sun are well-exposed i.e. the cut-off tops of the ...

I tried to use the "Sunny 16 rule" but it didn't work, why?

I have to be honest, I think the first is better. It's darker, sure, but that's probably more the JPEG conversion settings in the camera than anything. From my perspective, I think you could do a lot ...

Canon Speedlite 320EX or 430EX II, which one to choose?

Just FYI, Strobist refers to David Hobby's Strobist blog, where most of us learned how to do off-camera flash. If you really want to use this flash off-camera, consider that optical slaving to your ...

How do I choose a teleconverter for my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 and Canon camera?

Unfortunately, I can't recommend using a teleconverter with the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 at all (Update in 2020: The most recent Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC G2 takes a TC better than the older Tamron ...

Is a Canon T4i with 75-300mm EF lens sufficient for shooting night time football?

Darkness is a matter of exposure. You cannot use the flash because players are too far for it to reach and, if it would, it would probably be disturbing to them. While you can increase exposure or ...

I tried to use the "Sunny 16 rule" but it didn't work, why?

I think you have a worse problem than the "failure" of Sunny 16 (as user32334 said, it doesn't apply here)--given the light conditions I don't think that nest can be properly exposed with any settings-...

Canon Speedlite 320EX or 430EX II, which one to choose?

If I read all your facts correct (thinks you need and don´t need) there is no real difference for you and 320EX remote control feature is only one which interests you (maybe). So seems to be that you ...

I tried to use the "Sunny 16 rule" but it didn't work, why?

The sunlight in the scene is coming from right. So it is not f/16 but f/11 (f/16 only when sunlight is direct behind you and in front of you subject). So: f/11, ISO 100, Shutter Speed: 1/100 or: f/16,...

I tried to use the "Sunny 16 rule" but it didn't work, why?

The sunny 16 rule captures a sunlit scene accurately. It doesn't necessarily capture it as you perceive it or intend it. For example, you can use the sunny 16 rule to take photos of the moon, ...

Canon Speedlite 320EX or 430EX II, which one to choose?

I have the exact same kit as you (T4i/650; 50mm 1.8, 18-55mm). I also have the 430EX II. I would purchase the 430 EX II as it gives you more capability and power. I primarily focus on family pictures ...

Canon Speedlite 320EX or 430EX II, which one to choose?

Based on your description, I'd go with the 430EX II if the price difference is minimal. The main selling point of the 320EX is the video light, if you don't need the LED light on the front, the only ...

How do I choose a teleconverter for my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 and Canon camera?

I think that there is a general recommendation to use a teleconverter produced by the same manufaturer as the lens. It will probably have been designed to work with teles of the same brand. You ...

Is a Canon T4i with 75-300mm EF lens sufficient for shooting night time football?

Do I need a different lens to get the faces of the players...some come out dark? You may, you may not. A lot depends on how you've got your camera set and the lighting conditions you're shooting ...

What can I do when a PK-EOS ring adapter with AF conformation chip gives "communications error" with my Canon 650D?

It sounds like your adapter was developed earlier than the EOS Rebel T4i/650D. The third party makers of such adapters don't license technology from Canon, they reverse engineer it. If Canon starts ...

Is a Canon T4i with 75-300mm EF lens sufficient for shooting night time football?

When shooting action/sports under the lights at night there's no substitute for a wide aperture. This is especially true in smaller high school stadiums that usually also have dimmer lights. When ...

Okay, first, don't panic. Second, but only slightly thereafter, lock your memory card. That'll prevent accidents. Next, find a different memory card reader, cable, and ideally completely separate ...

This is what I do or at least tried and it works. I have a Canon 450D DSLR. I enable mirror lock up in the camera functions. Now on my 3rd party timer remote I set the delay for 10 seconds with say 1 ...
