Fast-Action Mode/Speed Broken

I have a Canon Rebel ESO Gii 35mm. I dropped it, and now the fast action mode does not work properly. The pictures come out blurry and over-exposed.

How much would it cost to fix this, or is it even worth getting fixed for the price?

Thanks,

Bonnie Aksterowicz

I have a Canon Rebel XS with a 70-300 zoom lens. I am wanting to take pictures of soccer at night with lights. What are the best settings?


Your camera is equipped with a sports setting on the command dial see diagram
Diagram here
tri3mast_199.jpg
This setting will freeze fast moving subjects and if you keep your finger on the shutter it will shoot continuously. Knot knowing how bright the playing field is I'm going to suggest going with a good ISO 800 film. My preference is Fujifilm but I don't know where in the world you are and you may have access to an 800 speed film on another brand. You have a great lens for doing this so camera lens film and the sport setting should be all you need with the Rebel XS. Now one thing if the built in flash decides to pop up just close it down. What I use to do if the flash became annoying was I set a little black bag over it and carried a couple sets of batteries. I liked using this mode because it let me concentrate on the players, game and composition rather then fiddling with the camera controls, let it do it's thing you just need to capture the action. Watch for the shutter speed blinking which will indicate that the shutter speed has dropped into a 1/60 or less zone and camera shake my blur the picture. Another setting I used was AV which is aperture value still using the Fujifilm ISO 800 I would set the aperture on the lens at F5.6 my lens was an F4, if your lens is say an F3.5 you would use F4.5. In AV mode you will not have the flash pop up or the shutter speed warning. Focus is the big thing you can blur the whole picture put if the players eye are sharp and clear you just aced the shot. Motion blur shows movement but focus on the eyes open the frame up show some of the players environment and you will be the hero in the club house when the pictures come in. Another thing Don't cheap out on the processing get a good custom lab to process the film one that is going to correct the pictures not run 'em through on auto feed. Take lots of film and plan on using all of it. Cheers have fun at the game(s)

I took action pictures last night with the TV mode setting, ISO- 1600, with the White Balance set up. It worked fine on Saturday. I had a lot of burry shots. I am taking volleyball pictures. Do I...


What your are trying to do can be very difficult. First is with a 75-300mm lens you are going to have a hard time keeping the camea steady...I suggest a monopod. Set the camera for Action shots ISO-1600...you will need a shutter speed at least 250th of a sec. to get decent action shots.

My Canon EOS Rebel 35mm SLR camera seems to be giving random pictures which are black half way down from the top. What can cause this?


One of the shutter blades is faulty or is being obstructed. Either that or you're using flash to take pictures but using too fast a shutter speed, most SLR's have a flash synch speed of 1/60 or 1/125 of a second.

The first problem will need a professional repair, but it may be a fairly straightforward one. The second problem would require that you read the user manual for both the camera and flashgun.

Night shots


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

Action shots


Action shots generally require a fast shutter speed -- to freeze the motion. So you need plenty of light or a "fast" lens. A fast lens is one in which the aperture opens further to let in more of light. The smaller the number of the maximum aperture, the faster the lens, so a 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 lens is "faster" than a 28-105mm f/4.0-5.6 lens. But usually, faster lenses cost more.

For the settings on the camera, the Rebel K2 has a Sports image mode (silhouette of a runner) on the control dial which should get you appropriate settings for most action shots.

If you want to set the shutter speed yourself use the Tv mode, and with a fixed shutter speed, the camera will set the correct aperture. Watch in the viewfinder -- if the aperture value is flashing, it means the shot will be underexposed. You will have to select a slower shutter speed.

Another way to get action shots with limited light or a "slower" lens is to use film with higher ISO/ASA. ISO 100 film is good for daylight shots, but for inside shots or evening shots, use ISO 400 film. Higher ISO film is "grainier", so enlargements will show less detail.

Blurry pictures in Sports Mode


Well, Sports Mode is a fully automated mode, which I believe tries to balance the exposure toward faster shutter speeds. An over all dark photo indicates an underexposure. You can adjust for underexposure by dialing in a 1/2 stop or so on your exposure compensation dial.

However, dark AND blurry indicates that you just didn't have enough light. The first thing you want, for that same shooting situation, is some faster film. Go up at least an f-stop or two (eg, if you're shooting with ISO 100 film, try ISO 400).

Pay attention to the shutter speed the camera is setting. If you're stilling still, photographing action, you'll want a pretty fast shutter speed, or you WILL get blurring. I'd recommend at least 1/250th second, faster still if you're trying to freeze motion.

A more advanced technique is to pan with your subject. Follow the subject with the camera, and use a medium to medium fast shutter speed (1/60th-1/250th). You will get some blurring, but if you learn this well, your subject will be pretty clear, and the background will blur... thus including the suggestion of speed in the final photo, rather than something that looks frozen. That can deliver a much more satisfying shot.

I have used Canons for years, but I avoid all of the those special modes, like sports modes. They're really trying to deliver some help, but these are techniques you should learn in any basic photography course.

If you set the camera to Av mode, you can choose the widest aperture available for that lens, which will always get you the fastest possible shutter speed -- thus, the least chance of blurring. If you still blur, you need more light, a lower f-stop number, or faster film.. those are the only cures.
