You will need to post pictures with and without flash. Same subject, same lighting conditions. Hard to guess. May be flash is not firing at the right time?Hi, I'm new to the forum so I'm sorry if this is not the right place to post questions. If its not, please let me know where to post.
I have a Canon 600D for almost a year now, and since I bought it the built in flash always had a problem. Whenever I take a photo, no matter what light conditions, the photo comes all black. I've been told by a friend that probably it was because the flash light was too strong. Would really appreciate help from the forum. Thank you!
Only when the flash is active, you mean? Could the flash exposure compensation be set way too strong?
Yes, the camera works just fine, but when I use the flash, the photo comes all black. I've tried all the exposure compensation values and I see no difference.
61: folks thinking they're funny(ier than me)
Duh! I missed that. Now that you say it, I realise it was so obvious.He must have a special camera. He is looking through the viewfinder while Live View is on?
it's a touchscreen and he is using his nose.....
59: posting while drunkDid you mean plain old drunk or DRunk?
My bad. It was this one (too big to attach):
It was one of the first that jumped out at me, but has a few problems. I think some of my others are much better (top-70 are at http://cruiseaska.shutterfly.com ).
Surprise yesterday. I've never seen it although I've heard of it. Changed position on the last shot and it negatively impacted the exposure, but it still shows the final result. Anyone for wings?Nice shots Jack.
6D 300 X2
Wow thank you so much for your responses thus far! =DHave you considered renting the camera and buying lenses?
Halfrack: I actually considered that too! But honestly I very rarely use my kit lens. I would use the 50f1.8 and stand back due the fact that times when I do need the wider angle, it would be indoors. it's always the ISO i keep pushing and not sure if the new entry level iso will be enough.
Aglet and rpt: good point about the 70D.. totally forgot about that one. will prolly wait to see the reviews on high iso noise.
for those who upgraded from the XSi to the 6D was the improvements in AF noticeable for action/sports/etc?
Awesome! I've been thinking about using a golf bag cart, too, but thought I was crazy for the idea. I have bad shoulders and knees so I need something...
For some reason, I am having problems uploading the actual image. But here is a link to a picture of my cheap, inexpensive equipment cart that did not cost too much.
Nice speedway shot, Paul. Hope you didn't get covered in shale - if you stand in the wrong spot, it'll take the skin off your face!
Got totally covered but loved every second, got on a bit better from the inside of the track when I shot this dslr video:
Agreed! Interestingly enough, Serendipity posted an image of a Cardinal eating a bug! I thought they were strictly seed eaters.. I think perhaps more birds are omnivores than I once thought!Yes, agreed about the beak. I almost didn't comment on it because of the beak but the facial markings are somewhat woodpeckerish, no? It's a great bird, I wish we had them here!Unless I move, I fear they will never be in my garden! Looking again, perhaps they are even a Cardinal, Waxwing, Small Woodpeckerish looking creature... I do like them...Very nice Serendipity! I wish we had some bulbuls here! They almost seem like a cross between a cardinal and a wax wing.. Beautiful!Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) that visited our garden yesterday for just a few seconds, luckily I had the camera in hand.
Really nice shot of a beautiful bird. We have bulbuls here but they look somewhat different. Thanks for sharing.
edit: Here is what they look like in Hawaii.
Huh! Never thought of them like that! So when the rain abates and the clouds part (not the sea!!!) hopefully they will return to my garden...
Nope, bulbuls. Very different. Look at the beak.
True, but they don't peck wood here in India. I guess their food is in abundance outside tree trunks. They need to pick the worms out of the dirt. Hence long beaks. Cardinals seem to have beaks that are used to break seeds. Think about it - if you were a worm and the climate was dry, where would you go? To a place that was damp. So inside a trunk makes sense. Now somebody posted a picture of a woodpecker listening to sounds in a tree trunk. Sure, that is human imagination, but I am sure the bird could hear the worms.
OK, so replace "I am sure" with "I believe"
I am an enthousiastic hobby-photograher. I am going on safari in September and am looking for a second body.And why exactly are you getting a 24-70 for a safari? Get a prime for landscapes. Choose the focal length of the prime appropriately.
I have a 5Dm3 as primary camera and plan to take with me my 24-70 f2.8 ii, 70-200 f 2.8 ii and 300 f4. In addition to that, a 1.4 converter (iii). A large oart of the photography will be in low light and I understood from the camp that 300mm with 1.4 converter should offer enough reach (the latter of course especially on a crop body).
I was hoping that the 7Dm2 would be available on time, but this is not the case.
I have been thinking about the following options:
- 7D, crop, eventually sell afterwards, eventually buy used
-70D, crop, newest technology, less weather/dust resistant, might be useful after the safari as well as relatively simple and small camera with fill-in flash and wifi
- 1Dm4, 1.3 crop, better image quality in low light, weather sealed
- or, the most expensive and probably most worryfree option, buy a 1Dx and eventually sell the 5Dm3 afterwards???
I would appreciate you advice.
