Watching the birds, weathers crap down here.View attachment 523326

I like this one!

I wonder how fast a shutter speed you need to freeze the wings? Off to google:

"How fast should you set your shutter speed to freeze wing motion? Go for at least 1/1000s to 1/2000s. Even faster is better, if possible! Aperture – In order to gain as much depth of field as possible, you should use the smallest aperture you can afford."

I might have a bash at that.

I have a cheap camera, I can't set the shutter speed
If the sports mode is select, it is supposed to operate the shutter faster,
if the movement of the subject is continuous it works fine.
In the first image that's taken the shutter is slow as in the bird image,
the next image is taken with a higher shutter speed, but it's too late
the action is finished
Cheap innit

It'll be better than anything shot by people like Henri Cartier-Bresson. You've just got to work out what it's good at and 'do that'.

I've had some cheap point and shoots that were absolutely brilliant at macro photography (for example).

They also make good 'street shooters'; you don't have to worry about the exposure or depth of field, just framing something interesting.

The trouble with cameras is, the better you get, the better the camera you want
which can consume large amounts of coin of the realm

You know, I don't think that's true. Cameras have improved in recent years in three areas:

1. Low light (ISO) performance.
2. The speed they can process the images, so you can take a gazillion photos a sec.
3. Wider dynamic range (more details caught in shadows and highlights).

But if you know what you're doing you can easily work around 1 and 3 as long as you're not being too niche (like wanting to photograph bands in a nightclub). Use a tripod and/or bracket your images and combine in HDR (easy to do).

And who needs a gazillion pics a second?

I've recently given my daughter my old Canon 450D; you can pick one up for £69 from MPB. And as long as you don't want video, it'll take brilliant photos. You'd probably need about £100 on top for a decent 2nd hand lens and there's some brilliant budget Canon lenses.

55-250mm Image stabilised STM (great for those garden birds and the best budget zoom there is).
10-18mm wide angle; extremely sharp.
24mm f/2.8 (my favourite crop sensor prime lens).

Go on, treat yourself!

I had to present a car for a „Professional“ Photo Shoot today. What a load of pedantic SHIT!!! All them Pixels can pick-up a wart on the Moon!!

That is the second time I have had to do this!!

First time I did not realize I had to bring swimwear and „uncomfortably!“ did my duty!?, luckily today I was prepared.
