Using a Starlink passes table (this one if from heavens-above but other sites are similar):. Track goes from WNW to SW, so, on the horizon, two points that are roughly 60° apart. The lower altitude is 10° above the horizon, the highest is 33°, this is a 22° difference. Since your camera has an APS-C sensor, the 60° horizontal Field of View requires a 20mm ...

Since you've set down photography and are revisiting it now, it's my guess that the question is less about the camera, but how you'll feel getting back into it, and what the activity will mean for you/how you'll use it. (If you know this, sharing would help the recommendation.) For that reason, I'd suggest the best value-buy in the ballpark of your skill. ...

Your mom's camera has 8 megapixels. The 18-55mm kit lens is about optimal for a 8 megapixel camera. No need to upgrade that lens without upgrading the camera body. I'll suggest you to get at least the EF-S 55-250mm IS STM lens. It's much cheaper than the EF 70-300mm IS USM lens. It's also cheaper than a new camera body. The 70-300mm would be longer at the ...

Before we cover your two specific concerns, let's discuss something you may not have considered that will affect how those questions are answered. It sounds like you might want to get a wide angle view of the entire satellite pass from start to finish. You'll find this near impossible without completely overexposing the stars in order to see a very dim ...

I visited Iceland in 2018. I shot with Fuji's- XT-2 and XT-3. I just looked at the metadata for the 1000+ pictures I took there. 3% were shot with a 10-24, 13% were shot with a 100-400, and 84% with an 18-135. Your esthetic will be different of course. There are times where an extreme wide angle will come in handy, and you may need to generate a panorama ...

To clarify: 18mm on this camera mean 27mm on FF. I owned A6000 with 18-105/F4 some time a go and I was very happy with this combination. In very rare cases I found I need wider lens. And IMO Sigma 16mm is not much wider than 18mm. Also when you make landscape photos you usually close aperture to F8-F11 to get bigger depth of field. So Sigma with F1.4 will ...

If you like reptiles that tend to be indoors, you want something that handles noise well and has a wide aperture and fast focus. Others have pointed out up and down the comments section, that usually the answer would start with lenses, and I agree. In your case, I'd probably get one decent prime lens with wide aperture (2.8 or better, ideally wider than 2) ...

If I was building a studio I would start with a cyclorama- a curved wall spanning the 90º angle of one of the room's corners and curves out onto part of the floor and painted white. This kind of room configuration gives you enormous flexibility with the type & size of products/subject matter and lighting configurations. If your intended subject matter is ...

Those things you must have in your list for a basic product shoot studio are that: White background White bounce cards made of foam Table Tape Plenty of lighting Table cloths Binder clips Props Regarding backdrop, about the same number of consumers (38%) say they’re most likely to buy a product if the images have a plain white background as the number who ...
