this guide popped up in my news feed
I don't have a lens long enough for the idea I had and I doubt I'll get one today.

this Monday 14th Nov @4.30 pm there will be a "Super Moon" the closest its been to Earth in 70 years, SO, what's my best way to capture the occasion, shoot in RAW and adjust everything in L R/PS or fully auto and hope for the best?

Highly unusual visitor to my garden this morning. We love pheasant but I could never bring myself to shoot such a beautiful creature.

Hi guys.

Mrs just bought a cannon eos 80d.
Looking at buying her a memory card for this.

What would the best options be here?

Many thanks.

No it was the filter, my camera is mirrorless so light leaks aren't an issue.
I tried a few options and the cheap srb photographic one had the best colours, I'm now looking at the square filters from srb and cokin

Not sure whether to start with hard or soft grads, also whether auto focus works properly with linear polarisers

I know it may be a bit late, but have you tried covering the eyepiece on long exposures? light hits the sensor through that as well.

I use the 1.4 on my 750, lovely lens, 1.8 is ideal, don't want to be much under 2.8 for trophy shots as the DoF is too small.

I already have a Sigma 24-105mm art lens but its a little bulky and heavy (and expensive) to use for trophy shots

It deserves better

I nearly bought the same camera with the sigma 50mm art lens, which is an awesome combo, too good for me, and too big for me to lug around like I do with my m43 kit.

Hi fellas

Anyone recommend a decent lens for self takes in all conditions

I've just purchased a Nikon d750 and was thinking of a Nikon f/1.8g 50mm prime lens

Anyone use one of these?

A flash will help a lot to fill the shadows, for ease of use you want one canon ttl compatable, and with a decent output

Something like a yongnuo 500 would fit the bill, but they're huge on small cameras



This flash is the same size, the camera probably twice the size of yours and half the size of a basic dslr.

I have a nissin i40 which is a better match with smaller cameras but given the cost you'd be better off getting a cheaper flash and better camera

I think it depends on........in 30 years time do you want a good photo of what you caught today, I would get a good second hand DSLR and a half decent flash, but till then experiment with what you have now, I would be tempted to use the flash even on a sunny day (as infill) make notes and keep records of what you do, before digital I would put a NUMBER in the shot and on a note pad put what I did in that photo with that number, settings/distance/clouds/sun etc, can pick up a used camera for about 100-130 and a flash for about 40 or 50, good luck and be patient


BTW how are you replying to a post 4 years ago that doesn't exist?

After some advice i own a cannon g6 but only ever use it on auto.A place i fish has very tight swim and is half boards half greenery the last 2 times i have caught decent fish my photos have been awful as half the light in half the shot has been dull the other half bright due to low early morning sun.Resulting pictures were awful 1 was a blur with over exposure i was told the other 1 end of fish dark .Obviously i am a noob do i need a external flash or would a better camera be a better option for someone who only uses auto also night shots are not great either

...generally the money is better spent on upgrading lenses rather than the cameras.

Good advice A camera is only as good as the glass on the front of it.

The 600/650/700d are all very capable cameras, touch screens in my opinion are not worth the extra, its definitely worth paying out for the best glass you can, people often say they need to upgrade cameras to get a better picture, and yes this is right in some cases, but generally the money is better spent on upgrading lenses rather than the cameras.
