    how can shoot a fast moving object clearly in low light without flash and not having a blur picture as well?

    example, shooting of moving vehicle number plates from the road side?

    i tried fast shutter speed, pictures gets dark
    U need to understand that when there's no light there's photography . U can max out your iso and try but too fast a shutter speed will not get you the exposure you want .

    what do u mean by pan?? follow the object?

    Yes, follow the subject's movement, not too fast nor too slow,i.e. panning sideways from right to left or vice versa. When subject is moving towards you or away from you, there should be no panning.

    you might need a huge and powerful light to sufficiently illuminate your subject at the shutter speeds you require.

    That's sort of why a lot of traffic cameras have a huge strobe.

    Either that or you up the sensitivity (ISO) to stratospheric levels, sacrificing image quality in the process.

    Since you do not want to use flash, I feel that increasing your ISO and panning is your best bet.

    hi guys, sorry to off topic a little.

    my camera comes with a removable cover on the lens, how can i modify it to tie a cord to it to minimize the risk of losing it?

    2. when i see some smudge on the lens, what solvent can we use to clean it? despite after some light wiping with a cleaning cloth, the stains can still be seen if u look carefully

    I beg to differ...

    A photographer friend of mine said that he considers all MILs and EVILs as DSLRs as they function a lot like one; only differences are that the mirror is knocked off from the design and the OVF is replaced by an EVF with information fed directly from the sensor.

    I have a stick-on knob with a string that I loop around the body of the lens.

    Can use those lens-cleaning solutions, which are generally alcohol-based.

    DSLRs by definition need a reflex lens. That's what the R stands for. MILs and EVILs don't have the lens. So, even though they might function like them, the advantages and disadvantages of the DSLRs are quite different from the MILs/EVILs.
    TTL OVF is a huge reason for a lot of people to buy DSLRs. The MILs and EVILs do not have one.

    you can super glue one side of velcro to the lens cap and attach the other side of velcro to a string which you can thread through the strap loops on the camera.
    will work with multiple lens caps.

    as for the cleaning, various cleaning products available. i would suggest you try those before going the alcohol route. sometimes alcohol (usually the contaminants in it) and the lens coating don't like each other.

    is it strong enough to hold the lens?

    you wanna hold the lens cap or the lens???


    I think I bought from OP or AP-SLS, can't really remember. Probably can find it on the 'mass sales' section too.

    Your question is a bit vague.
    Perhaps you're referring to 'hyperfocal distance' (can google that term)?

    Otherwise if you're asking for a magic setting where everything is sharp... sounds like the Holy Grail Do teach me once you find out!

    happy looking.

    oh and, call up the store you bought it from. it doesn't hurt sometimes to think of the next step rather than rely on everyone else to give you the answer. the internet and phones were invented for a reason. so do a search, make a call.
