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.

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
