How to shoot pictures of the moon

It's best to have your camera mounted on a tripod to hold it steady. Night shots require the aperture to be open up to 10 seconds to let in extra light (since it's so dim) I have an Olympus Tough Stylus and it has a night photo setting on it. So select a night setting on your camera. I also use a 2 second time delay (another function on my camera) so that when I press the shutter & release, it doesn't jar the camera, and "smear" the light of the moon. But here's a whole website talking about it.

Take picture of the moon with a DMc zs6

Mount the camera on a tripod and point it at the moon. Be sure to expose for daylight and not night because the sun is reflecting off the moon. Find more info here:

Camera settings to shoot the moon

The best way is to set your camera to manual exposure and ignore the camera's light meter. The light meter will try to make the entire scene a middle gray, which will result in a gray sky with a blown-out moon.

There's an old rule-of-thumb called the "Sunny-16 Rule." This says that the proper exposure for a picture under a bright sun is f/16 at a shutter speed of 1/ISO seconds. So if you're shooting a daylight scene at ISO 200 then the proper exposure would be f/16 at 1/200 seconds or equivalent (such as f/11 at 1/400).

Why is this relevant? The moon is simply a large rock essentially at the same distance from the sun as any other landscape you've photographed. So start with f/16 at 1/ISO. Take a look at the result on the back of the camera. The sky will be completely black, but so what? It's the moon you want. Zoom in on it and see whether it looks the way you want it to. Adjust the exposure if necessary. Don't let it blow out to complete white.

Hi, Just need advice on which is a better Lumix to buy- LX3 or FZ 40. In terms of i mage quality, shooting at night mode, and quality of lens. Am no professional photographer but would love to get...

In my opinion, your best best is the Lumix LX3. It's all around a higher quality camera than the FZ40 and it has a lot of features that I think work well for amateur photographers. It will definitely do better at nighttime. Also in terms of carrying space, the LX3 is much smaller and easier to fit.

As a pro photographer, this is the type of point and shoot that I would purchase if I was in the market for one in that price range. If I was going to go up in cost a bit, I'd probably purchase the Canon G12.

I hope that helps!

When taking pictures of the full moon , useing a 300mm lens with a3x converter i could not get a good focus at infinity /

What is the question?

I'm going to assume that you're getting a featureless white blob for the moon, and you want to know how to fix it.

Switch to manual exposure mode. The camera's meter is trying to make the entire scene a midrange. Since the scene is dominated by a black sky, it will overexpose in an attempt to make the sky come out gray, resulting in the full moon washing out completely.

Think about what you're photographing. It's a big rock under a midday sun, isn't it? The proper exposure for that is the "Sunny-Sixteen-Rule." That simply means that the proper exposure is f/16 at a shutter speed of 1/ISO. So, for ISO 200, use an exposure of f/16 at 1/200 seconds, or an equivalent (such as f/11 at 1/400 seconds, etc.)

If you're using a digital camera, you can check the exposure and the histogram immediately and adjust if necessary. If you're shooting film, bracket a couple of stops in each direction.

Your camera has the ability to shoot Macro and Super Macro, although in some Dial Modes, you can't use Macro.

To engage the Macro mode, press once the button on the left side of the lens/camera that looks like a Flower. To engage the Super Macro mode, press and hold the same button for more than one second.

Macro mode range 3.9 in. - 1.6 ft
Super Macro mode range is 0 in. - 3.9 in.
To cancel Macro mode, press the Flower icon button once.
Zoom levels are limited, and you will know that when the zoom bar turns yellow. This means the zoom is not available at that zoom level.


Hope this helps.
