Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Need a part for an Onyx Professional Video Tripod (made by Ambico) and it is a model V-0540. I can't think of the correct term for part but it is the "shoe" that attaches to the bottom of the camera and then locks into the receptacle for such at the top of the tripod head.

Camera mounted on tripod. 61 focus points, but my focal point lies outside of all of those 61. how do i focus, since i can't recompose on tripod? thank you!!

Put the camera in manual focus. Switch to live view and digital zoom in to the subject you want to have in focus. I think that will work. With 61 focus point, it will have live view.
I perhaps could have given a more detailed answer if I had known what camera you are using, like the band and model and eventually what lens. (also brand, model, focus length and diaphragm.

Can anyone tell me how to set my camera up to capture shots of the Aurora Boreleas?

I don't think there is one correct setting.
There are several ways to find out what is best for your camera. Some (seamy) professional camera's can shoot to very high ISO settings, so they can take pictures in shorter times.
You should start with a good tripod, because your camera will need seconds in stead of tenths or hundreds of a second.
At home, set up your tripod with camera on a bright night. Try to make pictures of the sky with shutter times like 1, 10 and 30 seconds. Look on what picture you have a good contrast between the stars and the background. That should be the starting point when shooting the aurora. Get used to long shutter times and how the camera reacts, because saving a picture that took 10 seconds to take, will take another 10 seconds to save.
You also could look up some pictures from the Aurora Borealis on Dpreview or Flickr and see what the settings of the camera's were. Would be great if you found pictures made with the Canon Powershot SD600, but if nit, you still can see what you can expect .

I have a ProMaster 6400 tripod. I can make it swivel from left to right, but how do you make it move up and down?

There is a knob at the junction of the cross-supports for the legs. I would think you would need to loosen this before the crank will work. But I do not have this model. On mine, the knob is higher on the shaft by the crank. Hope that helps.

Hi! just want to know if it is possible to change the sensor of a nikon D2H by the sensorof the nikon D2X to obtain 12.5 megapixels or more since i love my camera and can't afford to buy a new model my...

In short, no.

The two cameras may look similar and operate in a similar fashion, but your camera uses a 23.3mm x 15.5mm JFET sensor and the D2X uses a marginally larger 23.7mm x 15.7mm CMOS sensor, although both are considered to be APS-C sized sensors. The two technologies are incompatible. All of the image processing hardware is different as well.

If your camera works well then there's no need to upgrade anyway: four megapixels is more than sufficient for prints above A4 size and the sensor produces very little noise. Nobody other than professionals shooting for billboards needs 12.5MP and as higher MP counts = more noise, no professional would use C-size sensor anyway for that level of enlargement. The only advantage you'll gain with more MP is that you can crop the image down more and still retain acceptable quality, but to properly benefit from this you need to be using professional grade lenses and shooting on a rock solid tripod. The only reason that manufacturers produce ridiculously high MP count sensors is that the general buying public automatically think more = better.

If you love your camera then continue to use it: it was built to a very high standard and if serviced every now and then will continue to produce great images with little apparent noise even at higher ISO settings. The best way to invest in better photos is to improve your technique and also to use a good tripod or monopod whenever possible. Upgrade your lenses to the best ones which you can afford and you'll find that the will serve well on the next Nikon which you eventually buy.

Don't believe the hype: you have a great camera. Four megapixels on a C sized sensor will easily outperform more than double that number on a smaller sensor camera and will be less noisy than anything with more megapixels.

How do i take a self portrait photo - in simple terms please

Do you have a tripod ? If not a table or some suitable flat surface that can serve as the tripod. Then set the timner to 10 the button....and stand in position before the camera. You may get the shots you are looking for. I do not know if you can set the focus manually in this camera.

Gosh Megz, That's prolly more than anyone wants to type. Go to the Library or a book store. I'll try to explain white balance for you. Inside the camera is a program that evaluates the light during exposure. It tries to determine what is white and adjust the other colors in the photos accordingly by adjusting tint and temperature. Your eyes and brain do this for you. If you have a tripod try taking a photo in automatic mode and write down what the shutter speed and f stop was for that photo. Adjust your camera to those settings manually and take the same photo over. This way you will get a consistent photo to look at. Then change your color balance to different settings like daylight, cloudy, shade, tungsten (which is incandescent lighting) and fluorescent and view the difference in colors after you download to your image viewer on your computer. You'll think you went back to the late 60's.

Unable to unscrew camera from mounting plate tripod

The mounting plate may have a small pin with a spring to fit certain kinds of cameras.
Don't try to twist the plate off the camera, that may damage the bottom of the camera.
Instead, the plate should have a slotted screw in the bottom that screws into the camera. Unscrew the bolt with a good screwdriver.

Hope that helps.

Plastic tripod mount

Thats a bummer. I don't think there is. I would check with a camera shop. You might want to try some locktite and see it that works but you will probably have to keep the tripod mount permanantly on your camera.
