thanks all! just want to know what bout the shot taken beside noise?
if you are on a tripod, and taking night shots, you can afford to shoot at 20seconds and NOT worry about handshake or whatever. so...
- its ok if you set at ISO 100 and shutter opens for 10seconds.
- its ok if you set aperture to f/18 and shutter opens for 10seconds.
because it doesnt matter what the speed of shutter opening is.
So, lesson of the day, for night shots, do it as:
- ISO 100
- Aperture Priority, at f/11 or more.
- focus to infinity
- Use a shutter release cable or remote so that you do NOT shake the tripod when u release the shutter of the camera.
thanks luntut tat was realli useful! btw which spot metering u all use? and I am confuse over One spot, AI servo etc...
That's why it's called SPOT metering. It only measures the exposure at one small spot.
Isn't AI servo to do with focusing?
I think you need to read through the manual more thoroughly. You keep throwing up terms like this, terms which you don't really understand.
this thread is what i'd call a "don't know to laugh or to cry" thread...
to Hyori: u need to take things slow, i understand u r very excited w ur new DSLR, i would too, but then u need to first understand the machine first, go read the manual and google the terms being mentioned if u r unclear.
work on ur foundation and the rest will follow. i'm a newbie myself!
as for ur shoots, is it really "too noisy"? i honestly think it's fine... well at least on my screen. btw why are u shooting at f/32 for?
i shoot at f/32 cos if u wan to take a landscape picture.. u shld use highest f stop? m i right?
nightshots f/8 onwards is gud then move onto smaller A. Though some digicam mags suggest f/2.8 as defaulted in some P&S. Just start with AV and f/8 2secs, 4, 30 etc. Won't go wrong instead of manual. Manual I usually use for shooting portraits haha. AV + tripod and you're almost foolproof. U just experiment, f/32 what are you shooting? The sun? Please read up on the basics.

so if u understand WHY higher f-stop for landscape than maybe u won't be stopping down to the MAX f/32! that's extreme lah... and there is no hard and fast rule with what f stop to use for what type of shots, they are all guidelines
i think f/8 or thereabouts should be sufficient, so u do not need to resort to high ISO and 20secs shutter lah
Anyhoo, I concur with the rest of the seniors here, that the manual, though wordy and boring, is a very useful booklet to let you get to know the full extent of what your camera can do, as well as getting to know your camera.
While I don't consider myself a newbie in terms of photography knowledge, whenever I get a new camera, I will force myself to read it end to end, even if alot of concepts in there are already known to me. This is to ensure I don't miss anything out. And in the next few days or weeks that you're playing with your camera, bring along that booklet with you. Learning things by yourself through "the hard way" makes knowledge easier to remember than being told again and again.
Do take more night shots and post them up!
Thanks all for the comments.
thanks again the the valuable comment . learn something new again! so is there any case u use above f16
