• Can you take a starry night photo with the canon SL1 and the 18-55mm lens?

    Best answer: Yes. But you’ll need a tripod or maybe a small beanbag to rest the camera on, a high ISO setting on the camera to make it more sensitive to light (try ISO 3200 or maybe 6400), a wide aperture setting (try the one below the maximum aperture for your lens as that will give sharper images, but most lenses are best at... show more
    Best answer: Yes. But you’ll need a tripod or maybe a small beanbag to rest the camera on, a high ISO setting on the camera to make it more sensitive to light (try ISO 3200 or maybe 6400), a wide aperture setting (try the one below the maximum aperture for your lens as that will give sharper images, but most lenses are best at about f/5.6 or f/8).

    Also turn off the autofocus and manually focus the lens to infinity and to activate the shutter it’s best to use a remote shutter release. If you don’t have one then set the self timer function instead. The action of physically pressing the shutter release button causes camera shake. Experiment with shutter speeds but if it’s more than a few seconds the rotation of the Earth will start making the stars look like short lines instead of points. Those are called star trails and if you use a very small aperture (and/or neutral density filters) and a very long exposure of at least 30 minutes or an hour you can make a feature of star trails.

  • How to fix a Canon 600D?

    I borrowed a Canon 600D. But as I was trying to find the reformat button, the menu just rolled over and over, like that the button was being continually pressed. I tried to turned-off the camera but it won't. So, I removed the battery to power it off. BUt when I put back the battery, the camera won't turn on.

  • Can I load 35mm film into a 620 film camera?

    Best answer: Yes, but only if you have adapter hardware to hold the 35mm can and use a special 35mm take-up reel. Also an insert for positioning the smaller film accurately in focal plane must be used. My 1968 year Yashica twins lens reflex model 635 camera did this. Very nicely constructed, and the taking lens was super... show more

    My 1968 year Yashica twins lens reflex model 635 camera did this. Very nicely constructed, and the taking lens was super sharp. I got wide angle and telephoto supplemental lenses and a light meter for it. Used it for decades, always took great shots on either size film. When used with 35mm film, the 80mm focal length taking lens was a superior portrait one--ideal format, and face flattering (decreased the size of the nose) mild telephoto result.

  • What is a megapixel?

    Best answer: Your real question should be, "What is a pixel". qrk gave you an explanation. With a digital camera, the light and color is captured by a tiny electronic area on a sensor.

    Best answer: Your real question should be, "What is a pixel". qrk gave you an explanation. With a digital camera, the light and color is captured by a tiny electronic area on a sensor. This is the pixel. The sensor is composed of millions of these tiny light and color sensitive areas. The more pixels, the larger will be the resulting image and the greater the detail. So, a 6 megapixel camera is 6 million pixels.

  • What camera has the most megapixels for a professional photographer? Cannon, Nikon?

    Best answer: Canon's 5DS and 5DSR both have 50.6 megapixel sensors. Such high pixel counts are only of value in particular circumstances; for most shooting it's actually of no help or even counterproductive. Professional and advanced amateur photographers do need to take resolution into account, but it's usually way... show more
    Best answer: Canon's 5DS and 5DSR both have 50.6 megapixel sensors. Such high pixel counts are only of value in particular circumstances; for most shooting it's actually of no help or even counterproductive. Professional and advanced amateur photographers do need to take resolution into account, but it's usually way down the list of priorities when choosing a camera. If pixel counts were the deciding factor then we'd all buy the biggest camera we could afford, and drive a dominant market in them. As it is, larger formats such as so-called "medium" format cameras account for a much smaller number of sales, although still significant.

  • Why do some camera flash attachments face directly up to the sky and other face towards the subject, whats the difference in the photo?

    Best answer: So you have no concept of BOUNCE FLASH? If a flash is not facing directly at the subject, it is because the photographer has adjusted it that way, it is not a natural state of being for the flash. Aiming the flash AWAY from the subject so the light is reflected, (bounced), off walls and ceilings puts an indirect,... show more
    Best answer: So you have no concept of BOUNCE FLASH? If a flash is not facing directly at the subject, it is because the photographer has adjusted it that way, it is not a natural state of being for the flash. Aiming the flash AWAY from the subject so the light is reflected, (bounced), off walls and ceilings puts an indirect, larger, and far softer light source onto the subject. It simply creates a much better looking photo. When a flash is aimed directly at the subject, it will produce that typical harsh, glaring, deep shadow light that is very amateurish looking and unflattering to any human subject. Outdoors you cannot bounce of course. If someone is outside with the flash aimed UP, then they are an idiot. You cannot bounce off the sky. However, when outside, you can use some type of diffuser on the front of the flash so that even though it is aimed directly at the subject, the light is not as harsh. A mini soft box or even a piece of tissue paper over the flash can be an effective diffuser outdoors.

    Or, better yet, use your phone until you have a few hundred saved up. With ASMR videos, it's all about the mic while the video is secondary. So use your phone and dub the audio in post for now unless you are able to find a decent used camcorder with an external mic jack.
