Could I have done it better?

The answer probably is yes. I have taken this picture with A700 and Vivitar Ser 1 90mm/2,5 macro lens (MD Mount) with HVL58 flash in wireless mode. The shot was hand held (I wish I had macro slider). In the past all I could do was use onboard flash on my A100. This was somewhat different for me. Any...

Re: A (dumb) question regardind relative DOF

That is a very good point to remember especially when I tend to shoot first and review later. More than once I felt I could have gotten a better shot if only I paid attention to the rest of the frame in addition to the part I am interested. Often I am so concerned about missing the shot(s) that I fo...

Any suggestions on camera settings

I may have an opportunity to access my colleague's telescope. I think I have the appropriate adapter. Could some one suggest what camera settings I should use please? Please let me know if I need to provide details of the telescope (I don't have them at the moment)? All he told me is that it is abou...

Poor man's 800mm

Here is a set up I have used with my Dimage A1/A2 using Tcon300b and Tcon14b (Olympus 3x converter, Olympus 1.4x converter respectively) on a custom bracket designed for Dimage A1/A2/A200/A300 series. I need to dig into my archives to get an example worthy of posting. I did have a modest success wit...

Re: A900 does Moon

Greg,
I will try tonight again for my own edification. I did some postprocessing to boost highlights. I might have overdone but
want to get it a tad bit brighter.

With best regards,
Sury

Re: A900 does Moon

Thank you all for your kind comments. I will try tonight (weather permitting) again and at 1/500s as well as experiment
with tripod, raw and bracketing. I will also try with A700 as well.
Dr. Harout, the focus was spot but the metering was wide area.

With best regards,

A900 does Moon

With apologies to Dr. Harout. It was a bit cold but not freezing tomight. :twisted: Here is a hand held shot with Tamron 200-500 of the moon. I plan to do a tripod shot tomorrow. This is the first time I tried moon shot with A900. Tammy at 500mm and converted to BW in Picasa and cropped. I know it i...

Re: A900 underexposure/excessive noise issues

I am finding my LCD showing the image overexposed. Especially when I use fast (2.8 or faster) manual lenses.
I ended up compensating only to find the image is actually under exposed. I did not mess with LCD settings at all.
So far I have been shooting JPEG only.

With best regards,
Sury

Re: What is the right ISO for A700?

Agreed. My question was about blur due to camera shake at the slower speed. But you answered that question anyway. With best regards, Sury Just to be clarify...If you are not using a flash 1/15 and even 1/30 will be will not eliminate motion blur if the subjects move (ie: head turns, coughs, moving ...
