Title: blur
Post by: alan1572 on July 01, 2008, 10:10:08 PM
how can i get the wings to stay in focus? (no or little movement)
if i make the shutter speed faster it gets to dark.

Bigger aperture, higher ISO are the only ways I know. Both have their drawbacks though, reduced depth of field for the first and increased noise for the second. Get a decent noise reduction app like Noiseware.

I think for this type of shot it may be worth shooting in burst/continuous mode.

Yep, as Andy says, the only way looking at your EXIF

Exposure Time = 1/200"
F Number = F4.5
Exposure Program = Manual
ISO Speed Ratings = 200

is to crank up the ISO, thus giving you more shutter speed to play with.

Third option is to use a flash. If you have a good flashgun mounted on the camera you can get flash further than you think. If the birds are realy far away you could get a "Kirk Flash Extender" which mounts on the flashgun and I have used that successfully with the Sigma 50-500 at least at 20 meters away.

i think buying a decent flash gun will have to wait a while, while i know i will need one at some point it will have to wait.
