thanx sticki, i have never used all them things you stated to get the moon pic, i just normally switch camera on and shoot lol, all to technical for me haha, but will remeber this for night shots now.

Looks like a very moody night , Vanpire night ?:)

I think the cloud works for you too - it diffuses the glare without obscuring the detail.

Did you use the monitor or viewfinder to frame the shot?

10 Dec, 2011

 

Which is better meanie?

10 Dec, 2011

 

If shooting freehand (ie; no support) the viewfinder every time - you'll get far more shake if you hold it at arms length to use the monitor.

Ok, thank you, have tried to use any available support otherwise I get a wobbly oval or even streaky lines instead of the moon.

lovely Sandra - it really was bright last night

This is a great shot, I just cannot get a decent one no matter what I try.

i couldnt get one before HB, what camera have you got? are you able to alter any settings?

10 Dec, 2011

 

Last night I took one on every setting on the dial.. Cr*p.. It's a Cannon SXI powershot. I just asked T what setting he used last night and he put it to manual and changed the ISO setting. I'll get him to show me how to do it.

10 Dec, 2011

 

yes, i did my first one with iso 100 ~ on the top dial
also changed f setting that you can find in the function menu when in manual mode ~ i used f8 . would like to know what settings your OH used to take the tree pictures, i loved those

10 Dec, 2011

 

He says... 1/125th at f4 at ISO 80.
(gobbledygook to me at the mo but I'm learning slowly.)

10 Dec, 2011

 

oh thank you HB, i dont understand it all but this week i have learned where to find those settings so i am half way there.

did he use a tripod? or a zoom?

10 Dec, 2011

 

T says no tripod required at that speed. Full zoom.
(I never realised he knew so much about cameras....Why didn't he tell me before now I ask.)

10 Dec, 2011

 

wow all the comments, and thanx meanie, i dont use the view finder, will have to find it first haha
i just tried not to shake with the cold, took quite alot to get one lol, i really dont take advantage of my camera and what it can do, just point and shoot :o)) but this one thing has helped thanx, must root out the booklet :o))

10 Dec, 2011

10 Dec, 2011
