I am having trouble downloading your original size photographs. Every attempt is meet with the following message:
The owner of this photo has requested to keep this photo private
The "Large" size image will download but the file size is 30 times smaller than the original file size. If you prefer to not release the originals,
perhaps you can release a crop without resampling of the object only?
Also, can you explain why a high ISO setting (i.e. 800) was paired with a very fast shutter speed (i.e. 1/4000 sec)? Perhaps my experience and
equipment are dated but I always try to use the lowest ISO possible to avoid digital noise artifacts. Specifically, I often shoot hand-held using a
non-stabilized 300 mm lens, ISO 200, F/5.6, and for daytime scenes any shutter speed faster that 1/300 sec hides any hand-shake.
Sorry about the photo download - I have set permissions to public, but I didn't realise that by default there was a seperate entry in your site
profile to select for download of originals. I have now changed this so you can try again.
The odd camera setup is because I only got this camera yesterday. The A580 has a lot going on and I was in a bit of a flap as you can immagine. Any
way - I had manually set ISO800 the night before for indoore testing the in body anti-shake. I forgot to put it back to Auto. If I were thinking
better this morning I would have selcted ISO 100. Any way - I shot in Aperture priority and manually selected F6 to F8 to bracket exposure. Also I
have read that F7 is this lenses sharpest setting so I also had that in mind. Hence the high shutter speed - the camer thought I was over exposing and
selected the fastest possible shutter speed, which is 1/4000
A rule of thumb, as you obviously know, is that the shutter speed should be equal or faster than the zoom in mm for not seeing shake. So in your
examle 300mm zoom at 1/300 is in that - although I will admit I would struggle with this - you are a steadier hand than I am if you can pull that off
lol. I rely on the anti-shake technology (My last camera was the Konica Minolta 5D, which is an ancestor of the Sony)
There are many more of these pictures. About 40 in all - I will post up a zip file with all of them if anyone is interested in that? Many of them were
similer as I was shooting at 5 FPS for 3 to 5 shots at a time.
