Re: cameras used
Now here's a subject that I can give my humble two cents to:
I love my Sony DSC-D770, as it has all the manual controls one could wish
for. Point-and-shoot cameras are limited in that area. Avoid any that have a
noticeable shutter lag after pressing the release, and any that lack a
remote or cable-release fitting. External flash coupling is a must, IMHO. I
use the hot shoe for that, or slave flashes.
You are absolutely right here.Unfortunately,I'm still working with the
cameras inbuilt flash(Keine Deutsch Marks).Make sure you buy a camera with
TTL capabilities and external compatible TTL flash.TTL(Through the lens
You really want to have manual aperture priority.Most fish shots are done
with a high f-stop of 9 and up.
Look closely at the Nikon 950, which can be obtained at reasonable prices,
now, used. The 990 has a much bigger (hence noisier and slower) pixel count,
but the lenses don't support the 3 MP resolution, so it is wasting time and
memory, for no measurable improvement in final picture quality. [That is
true of all but a handful of cameras with over 3 MP CCDs, BTW.] Smaller
pixels (higher count) dramatically increase the TV-snow-like noise, or
greatly slow the speed, which you need for fish, usually.
Look for the ability to shoot motion (quick shutter) and picture final
quality. Ignore the hype about having more pixels, unless you are certain
they can be used.
Huh?You're loosing me here.
I quote "The number of pixels used to make up an image is directly
proportional to the human eye's perception of image's sharpness.The more
pixels there are the greater the level of detail captured in the whole
image,and vice- versa fewer pixels=fewer details"
Reference :Megapixel.net Article:Resolution and image sharpness.
Isn't detail what you want in fish photography?Fish photography is macro
Amateur digital Camera on the market today for macro photography is the
Nikon CP 990.
I tried to publish 1600x800 CP800,(same resolution as 950) pix before and
ended up retaking them on 35mm because they were of unacceptable printing
quality.The 990 images are of publishing quality.Now the Nikon D1 is another
story,somebody donate 4000.00$ please:).
Can I add a link to my website?
