Thanks Raian. Question - I felt that while the background is in focus the branch wasn't really. What should I have done to have the branch AND the background completely in focus?
Camera: Sony DSC-H5
Exposure: 0.005 sec (1/200)
Focal Length: 6 mm
ISO Speed: 200
Exposure Bias: 0/10 EV
Flash: Flash did not fire
Just a guess, but switching to manual focus might have worked...
Thanks! That is what I was going for with the ball...let me just add that I tried this with a cookie both on her nose and in front of her and we both failed miserably ROFL! Thanks for letting me know about the second one. I knew it wasn't "right" but I couldn't figure it out and had already put my apperture at 8 so I thought that wasn't it and was running out of time. I may try to take another later if I have time so I can really compare.Originally Posted by raian
Ah - good to know! I'll have to try that out!!! Thanks JimboOriginally Posted by Jimbo
If you can go up to f/11 or beyond it will get everything more in focus as well. But the branch isn't that big of a deal, I hardly notice it
I think f/8 is the most I can go. I think? Does that sound normal?Originally Posted by raian
Most cameras will go quite high for f/stop, but not low. It depends on the lens you have and what it is rated. The only way to know how high it will go it to go higher and see if it will. Boy, that's technical, huh? LOL!!!
Ok...so I stopped down my aperture to broaden the DOF and I guess at the same time I should have increased my ISO maybe ??? ??? ???Originally Posted by buddysmom
That's right... Another thing you can try is to go into the setup menu, scroll down to AF mode, and change it from CONTINUOUS to SINGLE or MONITOR.Originally Posted by KLM
KLM - you were probably a little too close to the branch. These camera have a minimum focusing distance. Try backing out just a little.
