The pop up flash flashing is what triggers the speedlite.
Your settings, the ambient light, and the power of the speedlite, will affect how much the pop-up can get it's light in to the exposure.
Basically, control the pop up flash to be as minimal as possible, and simultaneously try to keep your speedlite on higher power settings.
If you decide to get some radio triggers order from the Yongnuo ebay store so you get a warranty: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/hkyongnuophotoequipment
Yeah you guys are right. I will probably just pick up a radio trigger. Wanted one anyway so.
Thanks for the advice
Just ordered one of these, guess I'll be using some 120 now.
So I'm down to a Nikon D3000 or a Canon EOS 1000D, anyone have any opinions on either of these cameras?
The cameras are very similar, but I can't say which would be better, it's basically your preference.
And according to Ken Rockwell's review on the D3000, it is one of the worst DSLRs Nikon has produced. If you go with Nikon, I'd recommend not getting the D3000, but instead the D40, as on his review he says the D40 is a better camera overall, and is cheaper. Plus, from my experience with the D40, if you are a beginner, as I was when I first started using it, it is excellent for starting with.
Well I ended up getting the 1000D. Thanks for that spec sheet comparison, I was leaning toward the Canon already but that helped me make sure I wanted it.
I am looking for a camera that can take better quality pictures then this, I want a camera that can take pictures that look more clear, like this one
Any suggestions, I don't want to spend more money then I have too and I just want something that can take pictures that don't look terrible.
Not so sure its the camera anymore, possibly just an unsteady hand.
I seriously want your room.
What's your budget?
He said the second picture was what he wanted it to look like, not one he took. The shot is of a different room too vv
It's still a good camera given what it is, it's just that it's technically the worst nikon currently has to offer, which makes sense given it's at the bottom of the consumer line. The 3100 is pretty fancy for its price though, I'd suggest looking into it since it's still in that price range
If you're really into video I'd probably do it. Considering the investment you're making in the first place it seems like a solid choice. Also from skimming some Google research the difference looks more like $80USD, or ~£50.
Like finally saving up enough to get a luxury sports car but getting it with all the cheapest features.
And also it's the best Video Hybrid, and I'm more into video.
Need/want a 50mm 1.8 EF for my thing on Monday - but I don't want to give Jessops £95 for it - any idea where I can get one thats cheaper?
What's the difference between
The Pearstone one is longer, cheaper, and seems to have all the same features. There seem to be more complaints about the Canon one than the Pearstone one too. I'll be purchasing my first flash, a 430EX II with it. Any alternative recommendations?
I have been getting into taking pictures lately and need a new camera I got in 09, my birthday is next week (The one in my profile was my friends one, as a joke) and I decided for a camera. Under 500 - 400 hundred would be good.
Now I did look at Snap sort and looked at the WB200 Samsung, well I think its called that I forgot.
And its an option.
So here is what I am looking for in a camera.
HD lens (Or something to make my photos look better)
A way to take pictures at Night.
Water Proof Would be nice.
Not to heavy.
Not to big.
And a rechargeable battery (Most cameras have them).
And 1080p videos.
That is what I have been looking for lately. If you cant find one, just tell me what the features are called and I can find one.
And if you're wondering how my camera is damaged here is a list.
Scratches on the screen at the back.
Got dropped and hit yesterday didn't work for a hour.
And uh well I forgot the rest.
Get a canon s95. It'll be all you need for now.
I'm in a bit of a dilemma - I'm quite into photography which I recently started having bought a Pentax ME Super, but I've always wanted to get into film making too, and I'm probably gonna get a camcorder (the Sony CX130E) in a couple of days for my birthday.
However, if I like photography a lot, which I think I might, I will probably invest in a DSLR sometime, and the video capabilities of even something low-end like the 550D are insane - the depth of field and different lenses makes it probably better than the kind of camcorder I'm looking to get.
Are there any downsides to DSLR video? I can probably get a 550D kit for about £450, and the camcorder I'm looking to buy is £260 so there is a lot of price difference, but I might be willing to pay that if it's a much better alternative.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
