Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sony Cybershot D40

I used my camera at the weekend at a wedding. The pictures came out fine at the reception but during the ceremony they were blurred, especially when I zoomed in. I used the automatic setting, but still it was blurry.

How can we choose Best wedding photographer for weddings? will get you up to 10 prices from local photographers but DO NOT PICK ON PRICE ALONE. Look at their work. Not just a few images on their website. If they have some weddings online ask for the password to see the entire coverage. Does it look like what you would want your wedding photos to look like? If so that's a good start. Also ask them about photos during the ceremony itself. I have attending weddings where the photographer was literally leaning over the groom's shoulder during the exchange of rings to get a shot. Others cover the entire ceremony discretely from the behind the guests with no flash. Whichever style you prefer just be sure you and the photographer are both on the same page. This is also true with how the photographer and assistant dress for the wedding. Good Luck.

I was somehow roped into shooting a friend's night wedding this weekend, even though my photography "expertise" is entirely limited to shooting in natural light. I am a total amateur (and my friend knows...

First, you MUST practice with the flash before you shoot the wedding. If at all possible arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony with a friend/model to pose for you so you can practice with the settings until you understand what will and will not work.

Use manual exposure settings (e.g. 1/60th at f5.6) on the camera, and let the flash work in automatic mode to provide the light needed to shoot with the manual settings. Don't try to use flash on subjects further than about 10-15 feet as it won't provide enough light to go that distance - light falls off according to the "square of the distance", so the amount of light you have at 10 feet is 1/4th the light you have at 5 feet (rather than 1/2 the light like you might think). Practice with your model to learn how far your model can be before the flash falls off too much. To shoot at the greatest distance, open the aperture (e.g. f2.8). You can use a smaller aperture only when your subjects are fairly close.

I can't give you exact settings for your flash on a Nikon as I'm a Canon shooter. Look in your camera manual and the flash manual for iTTL.

Do NOT try to shoot in aperture priority. The camera will use a very slow shutter (appropriate for that aperture) to gather the background light, and the flash will provide "flash fill" and you will get motion blur from your hand-holding the camera and from the subjects moving during the long exposure.

Most ministers don't allow flash photography during the actual ceremony, so you need to shoot in available light during the ceremony. Normally you can use flash during the procession to/from the altar, but once the bride reaches the altar you need to stop using flash. If the ceremony is in a dark location (dark church) this can be very VERY difficult. You need fast glass, an f2.8 (or faster) lens for this and will need to shoot at the highest ISO your camera offers. You may want to return to the rental place to rent a fast lens if you don't have one already.

Obviously you need to stay ahead of the action. This means you need to get into the aisle near the end of the service and shoot the kiss from that location, and then shoot the couple as they proceed down the aisle after the ceremony.

If at all possible, take posed photos BEFORE the ceremony. Try to have a 1-hour window to take these photos that ends 1-hour before the ceremony starts. If you can't take the posed photos before the ceremony, try to limit the after-ceremony photos to just a few groups - some photos of bride and groom, with the whole wedding party, with the bride's family, the groom's family, and everyone (all family members and wedding party). Take 3 or more shots of each group so you can swap in eyes or faces if someone looks great in one shot and someone else looks great in a different shot.

Good luck!

How to set up 50 mm lenst for wedding photos .. and flash

Sorry this is too late, perhaps it will be useful to others. I hope you used a different lens for the wedding!

You can't use the 50mm 1.8 lens on the D40x unless you focus manually. This is because the D40x only supports autofocus with AF-S and AF-I lenses. The focus motor and drive mechanism for other AF lenses was omitted to make the camera smaller, lighter and cheaper.

Blured Pictures

When you sent the camera in did they give you a diagnosis? Even set to macro it shouldn't affect wider angle pictures. My money would be on a fault with the autofocus, sony probably should have replaced the unit. I wouldn't give up on sony though, every cybershot i've used (which quite a few) has always given good results and never had a fault. I agree i've seen plenty of dsc w30's/35's/50's/55's etc models on ebay with breakdown problems of one sort or another, but all manufacturers have problems.
