I bought an intervalometer I've not been on the bank with it yet, I have set it up at home with the first delay of 10 second's then about 7 in between after that, taking 10 shots doe's that sound too short a time? I suppose it depends on how lively the fish is.

Any advise most welcome.

More for video I expect, cheaper than a gimble but would need some seriously flat ground

I think it was av 4.5 and shutter/ISO were automatic. The camera wasn't that close, id guess 2m away. None of the picture was sharp, it had a slight 'blur' effect.

Using a canon rebel 2ti and standard lense which comes with it.

When I put the setting on full auto the pics came out much better

thanks Jim, I don't think it comes on a disk, just a card with a code on that you download.
I'm not particularly computer savvy so I would like to know if there's an idiot proof way to do it

if yo had it on disc use that, Acronis True Image is a software that can copy hard drives, that's one way to do it, if you know how to download via torrent sites that's another, if you need more info on the above site's PM me.
CLICK HERE for more info ON ACRONIS.

Can anyone tell me if Lightroom can be uninstalled from one pc and installed on another? I'd like some software to tweak a few shots but I'll be replacing my computer in April and I don't want to waste the money

A prime lens may not be the answer? When you were in av what was the shutter speed, iso etc? and if you were @3.5 and the camera was quite close to you, its going to give you a shallow D.O.F of you and the fish, was there any part of the picture that was sharp?

(what camera and lens?)

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.
