EOS-M / Re: Crazy moon
« on: July 23, 2013, 11:33:14 AM »
OK.  I have the M and I have the adapter.  Looking out the window, I see a practically full moon.  So I put the 100-400 on the M.  No tripod.  Shooting out of camera jpeg and not RAW.  I know I can do better.  But, I wanted to see how it would handle.  Leaning against the wall, I tried AF.  Forget it, unless you like hunting.   ;)

So, manual focus with a magnified "live view" and I got this......
iso 6400; 1/1250; f11

Makes me think that with a tripod, a bit of time, and PP on a RAW image with some noise reduction, this little camera won't be bad at all.
The noise is due to the high ISO. Why do you need f11? Use the largest aperture. Get the ISO to about 400 or below. A tripod would help no doubt but you can hand-shoot the moon. What lens did you have? Can't read Exif on the iPad.

I continue to follow and photograph the juvenile Cooper's Hawks in our area.
Lovely! I am missing my hawk. He seems to have moved elsewhere in the rains. Hopefully he will come back once the rains abate.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 600D flash problem
« on: July 22, 2013, 10:30:37 PM »
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.
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?

61: folks thinking they're funny(ier than me)

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.....
Duh! I missed that. Now that you say it, I realise it was so obvious. ;D

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 ). 
Lovely! I remember seeing it now.

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?

6D  300 X2

Nice shots Jack.

Congratulations! All the best for the finals.
