I'm finding more and more recently that people are starting to own affordable DSLR cameras. By DSLR I mean digital cameras on which you can manually
control ISO/Shutter Speed, Focus, etc. In fact, they're becoming smaller and more practical to carry around every year, to the point where it will be
common place to have one on you most of the time, perhaps even built in to your phone. The problem is, most people have no idea how to use them. They
just turn on the Auto function and click away.
For you future, or current consideration, here's the proper way to take a picture of a UFO.
Your camera needs to be adjusted manually. I don't care how smart the Auto feature is, it's most likely not going to work right.
1) If it's a bright UFO, always shoot LOW! That means an ISO of 100, or whatever the lowest number your camera can do is, this is going to give you
the cleanest possible picture that your camera can produce. Conversely, if the UFO is more dim, shoot with a higher ISO value.
2) Use a low enough Aperture setting. That means that your "F-Stop" should be low enough as to not let too much light in. F6 or F8 might work,
depending on how bright it is.
3) Shutter Speed should be set depending on how fast the object is moving. If it's going quickly across the sky, you'll need a FAST shutter speed.
1/125 would be a good example. But remember, if you make your shutter snap very quick pictures, you may need to compensate by allowing your Aperture
settings to take in more light.
