What Are the pics like of stationary objects with the camera on a tripod? Tiny movements will make the image look soft at slow shutter speeds. Also all lenses are sharpest stopped down a bit.

All of my primes are sharper than my kit lens (sometimes too sharp for what I want) as well as having better colour/contrast but I don't have Canon.

Thanks for the replies. I tried using it on AV setting 3.5 to blur the background but the pics were no way near good, I then changed it to auto mode and the pics were better, The fish and I are in focus, just not really sharp. I think it's the lens as it's just the standard one you get with the camera

The lense refocused each time, which is what I wanted to happen (when looking to buy something) as I want to be able to turn the fish and still focus as opposed to being on manual and then when I move it not being able to refocus

Best bet is to use autofocus to fix on a bankstick etc where you will hold the fish, then put the camera into manual focus if you can so it stays fixed on that spot

That's not the fault of the intervalometer, Vinnie, but the fault of the camera. Check your autofocus settings. Could be the camera has reset itself (it happens!) and is trying to focus on the background rather than on the subject. Setting the camera lense to f8 or f11 will increase the depth of field too.

If it's mainly for catch shots you might be better off with the 35mm unless all your venues have roomy swims. Stick your kit lens at 50mm and see how much space you need.

Edit: just seen the price for Canon 35mm
no wonder people stick with the 50

Youl then have to catch a fish then

I have a canon rebel t2i, the pics are ok but nothing special, there no way near as sharp as a lot of people's trophy shots. Am I right in thinking if I get a better lense this will help? I'm using the standard supplied lense. Will the 'nifty fifty' give me that much clearer pics?

Cheers

That's a bit of a steal pimp The quality of the pictures you can take with a dslr are on another level with the right lens. They are harder to get used to but once you master them you won't look back

Hi all, i am looking to get a better camera and am currently using a canon sx10is which is a compact with some good features.
I have been offered a Nikon d90 with standard lens and another zoom lens and all the bits for 300.

Im wondering if this is a good deal and any thoughts on the D90

I checked a few comparisons, the transcend is probably better for me, and half the price with twice the capacity

Eyefi transcend, probably not a million miles apart.
Just load the app to a device or two, switch camera on, then open app then it will automatically load pics.
You just have to pair devices the once.

Thanks that's great, I wouldn't want raw files on my phone, that'd fill the memory quick not to mention the data usage.

I didn't realize there were compatability issues I'd better check that

Is there much difference between the eye fi and transcend versions?

Yes mate I used the Eyefi mobi card for my old camera, not compatible with new camera.
And worked well.
Saves connecting leads, also whilst bankside I could upload photos from camera to phone/tablet
Enabling me to send pics, if desired. But placed camera away from harms reach etc.
Think it was a class 10 card, so no major lag,
I don't think it can transfer Raw images, but I shoot in both Raw and JPEG and then if I want to edit from Raw I could, via leads/card and pc.

Check your camera is compatible!!

They do another card where I think you can transfer Raw files, mine was the mobile version.
Very good
