The problem is your shutter speed is too fast for the type of lighting you have. Most LED lights flicker (and fluorescents, in a slightly different manner and degree) at either 50/60 Hz, or 100/120 Hz, depending on the mains frequency where you live. At a shutter speed of ¹⁄₄₀₀ second, it's a bit of a crapshoot whether your shutter will be timed with the ...

Here are some common issues with Godox firmware updating: Mismatching Firmware File Whatever you do, DO NOT USE A FIRMWARE FILE FOR A DIFFERENT DEVICE. This is a basic tenet of all firmware updates: firmware is closely tied to hardware configurations, and any hardware differences can mean bricking a device if you overwrite with the wrong firmware image. ...

When you take a photo with a digital camera, The camera collects the raw data from the image sensor, processes it, and creates a JPEG preview image. This preview image is attached to the main image file, whether the main file is in a raw image file format or is a JPEG file converted from the raw data according to the camera settings current when the image ...

Your best bet is to switch to Canon. For Canon point & shoots: CHDK. For Canon DSLRs: Magic Lantern. I use both and love them. In particular, CHDK gives manual controls to most P&S, and can also shoot raw on those models that only support jpeg.

No, you don't need to install previous updates if installing a newer one, and on the camera settings it's possible to check the firmware version by doing the following: 1. Enter Setup Menu 2. Click on Firmware Settings option This link has the latest firmwares available for Nikon cameras: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783/~/...

It is possible and has been done before but AFAIK not by Leica. Pentax and Canon both did it early on as SDXC was introduced. This added support for large card sizes and also the exFAT file system.

There are three steps to determine this. Find out what firmware version you're currently using. This procedure typically involves either holding down a button while turning on the unit, or going to a custom function menu and seeing what's displayed there for each device: A1: Hold down the SET button while turning on the trigger. AD200: Hold down the MODE ...

I've been using X-Pro 1 for almost a year now. My other camera is a Canon 5D MkII. The sensor and the size of the complete kit were the main reasons to buy for me. But of course after I bought, I realized, how hard it is to focus compared to 5D (it might be a silly comparison but that's what I'm used to). Basically, it's harder to auto focus, and you ...

There are a few things I would try first: If you normally shoot at low ISO, the camera is probably using more noise reduction than it was before. See if there is an option to turn off in-camera NR at lower ISO settings. Normally when updated firmware is installed, all of the camera settings reset to the default values. You may have had in-camera sharpening ...

In the case of Canon and Nikon the current models are all proprietary. There are apps for Android devices that allow them to control a Canon camera via a USB cable, but the camera is not running the Android OS. Of course in certain areas the firmware includes compatibility with accepted standards such as USB, DPOF, EXIF, JPEG, etc. In the past some of the ...

For all except the Rebel series there is this list that goes back as far as the original 5D and 40D. http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/professional/standard_display/support_pro/pro_firmware-updates I'm not aware of any such list that includes the Rebel series from Canon.

If you are concerned about tampering, you really need the file to be signed cryptographically; Nikon doesn't do that. If your concern is simply that a download might be corrupt (or that your flash card might have an error that corrupts the file), don't worry. The firmware has an internal checksum checked by the camera's firmware updater. (Details for some ...

Sometimes you have to upgrade to a required level! You will have to check out the release nose of the latest firmware, it will tell you whether it is a cumulative update or you need to install a previous firmware first. Been there, done this. (Just a quick note: installing the latest firmware is sometimes not beneficial. I resisted to install a newer ...

According to the manual(pdf), page 59 it can be shown with the [VERSION DISP.] option from the Setup menu. The latest version of all body and lens firmwares can be found on Panasonic's Joint update service for Four Thirds lenses page.

You can use it as a manual flash on the Nikon hotshoe without doing anything to it. I wouldn't recommend trying to upgrade the firmware. The flash is physically only capable of being a manual-only flash on a Nikon camera. Look at the pin layout on the foot vs. the Nikon hotshoe. Canon's pin/contact layout has four small contacts in a square underneath the ...

Knowing the shutter count is only useful in two situations: for repair, which is handled by the manufacturer. There's no need to make this a public feature. for selling/buying used gear, which the manufacturer has low interest in. They build cameras to sell them, not to simplify the process of reselling them. The manufacturer has no (big) benefit of ...

Firmware updates for camera bodies (Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Sony, and others) sometimes disrupt compatibility with 3rd party lenses. Sigma is likely to produce a firmware update for recent lenses. Older lenses are less likely to have an update available. You may use the Sigma USB Dock to apply firmware updates if your lens is part of the Global Vision Series (...

(While this is not the most likely explanation for the examples posted in the question, which scottbb covered very well, someone else who finds this question and has a similar problem - changes in exposure after a firmware update - may be shooting under more constant lighting and find the following to be applicable.) When you update firmware with most ...

As you can see from the manual at page 112 under the Live view function settings tab of the menu you can find the Metering timer option which does the following: You can change how long the exposure setting is displayed (AE lock time).

Is it possible for any point-n-shoot? In theory, yes. But if you look at the topic, you will find that folks writing CHDK had to get started by debugging with only one LED as feedback. It took many hours to figure out the first thing. It took hundreds of hours to figure out enough to know that they could even do what they wanted. CHDK exists because (a) it ...
