Question about Sony Mavica MVC-FD83 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Shutter speed I am new to digital cameras and I just purchased a Sony fd-83. The specifications say that the min shutter speed is 1/8 second and the max shutter speed is 1/4000 s. Nowhere in the manual or on the camera can I find how to adjust the shutter speed. Can someone help? Thanks Till

Re: shutter speed

Hi Till. If I am not mistaken, the shutter speed on the FD-83 is automatically set and does not provide for manual override. I will check today with our product manager to verify this.

My eos40d on sports mode is not shooting at its proper speed at 6.5 frames per second. it shoots 2 frames per second and the piture cones out orange and not focus I only have this camera four weeks any...


6.5fps is only the manufacturer's indicative maximum. The camera will not always perform at this speed when conditions aren't suitable (too dark, for example). In Sports Mode, the camera decides the correct shutter speed for that scene. If it's not a very bright day, shutter speed has to be lowered (slow) to compensate for the lack of light. This results in a lower frame per second.

If you want to test the max fps, set your camera on Tv, and set the speed to 1/1000+ on a bright sunny day. Set the Drive Mode to AI Focus or AI Servo. If at 1/1000th of a sec, the Aperture value blinks in the viewfinder, you don't have enough light. Increase the ISO. You should be able to achieve 6.5fps. That's my experience anyway. Good luck.

Nikon D60 Digital SLR--Slow Shutter Speed


Your're probably using a flash with TTL disabled. So 1/200 is the highest sync possible with that kind of flash. Did you try removing the flash off the body and setting faster shutter speeds?

Under exposed pictures when using studio lighting with 5D


A black shadow at the bottom of the image is usually the result of using a shutter speed that is beyond the max flash sync speed of your camera. The max sync speed of the 5D and 20D is 1/200th. In a studio setting with wireless triggers there can be additional latency. Try using a shutter speed of 1/125th and see if that clears it up. You may be able to push it a little higher as pocket wizards are very good wireless triggers but don't use a shutter speed above 1/200th.

D 80, controling shutter speed


dear hydet

use 'Program Shift'. This will change the values for both aperture & exposure, but keep the overal exposure value correct. Eg if the standard values are 1/60th of a second at f5.6, then rotating the dial in one direction will change the parameters (first) to 1/30th & f8, etc, and turning it in the other direction will change them to 1/125th & f4.

oke, post in me back


thx

Installing memory stick into a Sony Mavica FD-83...


There is absolutely NO way to use a Memory Stick with the FD83 camera. The floppy adapter will never work with a FD83. The camera OS does not have the required driver.

Low lux mode FD83


I also, almost always use the low lux modes with that cam, that is, when I have a tripod or can keep the camera steady. Oh, and it s$cks for action shots, but for stills its great. I find that the lox lux mode actually reduces noise in addition to brightening the image and making the colors pop. Who woulda thought? It's a nice feature to have when the onboard flash is useless. Anyway, this mode apparently does use a longer exposure seeing how you get blur as the shutter speed is dropped. I'd say its around 1/3 to 1/15 of a sec (I wouldn't think it to be longer than 1 second). I really don't have a clue as its a preset, though. But, again, that mode saved that camera from being crapo (like the earlier ones before it), despite its limited uses (stills).

Long Exposures with S75


No, 8 sec. is the max. goto the S (shutter priority)or M (manual)setting on the camera and use the black wheel with your thumb to set the shutter speed.

Interlace Scan (IS) mode and the Progressive Scan (PS)


The Interlace Scan (IS) mode the camera uses a mechanical shutter with shutter speeds up to 1/640th second. It also uses the maximum resolution that is possible with the CCD (5.0 MP). In the Progressive Scan (PS) mode the camera operates with the electronic shutter with shutter speeds up to 1/4000th second and a 1/18000 second shutter speed (1/18000 in Shutter or Manual Priority modes only). In this mode the resolution is reduced in half (2.5 MP).
