Jun 11, 2015 - Aperture: Set your aperture to f/11. Shutter Speed: Set your shutter speed to 1/125 on cameras with base ISO 100, and to 1/250 on Nikon DSLRs with base ISO 200. Lens Focus: Set your lens to manual focus (either through a switch on the lens or on the camera) and set your focus to infinity.
Aug 7, 2014 - Start with ISO 200, f11 aperture and 1/125 second. Try a test shot. Then use trial and error by changing the shutter speed until you can find the best exposure that works for your composition without overexposing the moon. Turn off auto focus.
For Mac, use iPhoto, or if you are more experienced with digital photography, try Aperture.
For Windows, you can use Picasa or digiKAM.
**Picasa and digiKAM will also work for Mac, but iPhoto and Aperture will not work for PC.
"iPhoto makes managing your photos as easy as taking them. It helps you
organize your photos so you can find them fast. Edit them so they look
their best. And share them with your friends and family."
"You've taken a great shot. Now you're ready to make it even better.
Aperture 3 gives you all the tools you need to turn your photography
into so much more."
"Picasa is a software download from Google, that helps you organize,
edit, and share your photos. The local application usage and the online
storage up to 1 GB is free, and it is easy to use. The online version is
called Picasa Web Albums."
"digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application for
linux/KDE, which makes importing and organizing digital photos a "snap".
The photos are organized in albums which can be sorted chronologically,
by folder layout or by custom collections."
I would delete Apeture from the machine and do a clean install of the
application. Do not know if there is an unistall on the installer disk
but to get rid of apeture manually try dragging the application to the
Then delete the following folders and files ...
\Library\Application Support\ProApps\Aperture System ID
No. You only need to do that when using any exposure modes where the camera needs to take full control of the aperture setting for you (basically everything except full manual metering and aperture priority metering). The idea is that by setting the lens to the minimum f-number (aperture) the camera can then automatically set the actual aperture required by the exposure meter and exposure program to anything between maximum aperture (lowest f-number) and the f22 set on the lens.
Aperture settings are independent of autofocus on all SLR cameras. If you're new to SLR photography then I highly recommend the latest (2009) edition of John Hedgecoe's New Manual of Photography. The link is just to show you the book and not an endorsement of the featured supplier; I'm sure that you'll want to make your own buying choices.
I hope this has helped, if so please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer. If not then please explain your problem in more detail and I'll be happy to offer further assistance.
It is possible that you have set your Camera to RAW+L instead of RAW. Take card out ofb the camera, use a card reader and browse the card using the OS (as auxillary drive) rather than Aperture. I suspect that the RAW files are present, juts not visible on your computer possibly because of some setting in Aperture.
Try using Image Capture. It's in the Applications folder and can read most digital cameras. If that doesn't work get a card reader and download the images that way.
If you have it, iPhoto should work with it as well and will help you to keep your photos organized and make adjustments.
Hey matty reps, You are attempting one of the most challenging types of photography there is, because you are combing nighttime photography and action photography. If you want to stop the action you normally would be using the highest shutter speed possible, but since you are trying to take nighttime action photographs I would rely on a flash since the flash duration in essence becomes your shutter speed. I would definitely use a hotshoe mounted flash because the built in flash will most likely not be powerful enough for your needs. I would have the camera set to aperture priority so I could control the depth of field, because the smaller the aperture the larger depth of field you will have and the less likely your subject will be out of focus. If you are attempting natural light nighttime action photography you will definitely need a very fast film speed such as 3200 speed film which will provide significant loss of image quality. You will also need a very fast lens meaning a lens with an aperture of at least f2.8 or larger, and your camera in this scenario should be set to shutter priority so you can set the camera to the fastest shutter speed possible but this will present focusing issues. In both scenarios I would have the AF system set to continuous so the camera doesn't require you to achieve focus to be able to trip the shutter. As in all challenging photography situations more photos are better than less, because you should have more failed photos than successful. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
1) Go to support.wdc.com
2) Click Downloads
3) Select MyBook, then your MyBook model (I selected MyBook Home, as it was appropriate to my hardware)
4) Download and install the WD Drive Manager (Mac)
Note that this software only updates the utilities that control the power button, drive lights, and capacity gauge. If the drive is otherwise not functioning properly, you'll probably need to seek alternate support: the hardware itself functions just fine for me as an external drive without installing any additional software or drivers.
