#78656 Your best photo of the week ending May 15 2022

Thanks to the rest of you as well. Now that the funeral is over, things are looking up a bit. It will take time before I am my usual happy, creative self, though.

A satisfied, but tired caterer.

After mother's funeral, we held a moment of remembrance at her favourite café. As the proprietor is a long-standing friend of the family, he had worked even harder than usual to make this event one to remember.

Ron, all three alternatives are really nice if they are well executed. Jellied eels are a bit more of an aquired taste than the two others, though.




#78540 How about an insanely low light challenge?

Not quite as ridiculously high ISO as some others, but OTOH, it has some DR...

Set one of the human- or animal detect modes. It will work just like the ordinary Auto- or Wide area modes until it detects a face. It will then charge frame colour to yellow as it has changed to face detect. As soon as it detects the eye, the frame will shrink to the size of the eye and follow with this higher precision. It is no longer necessary to play around with the a4 settings unike the single-EXPEED bodies.

The autofocus system in the Z6 is very complex. 
A good starting point is setting the camera to single-point autofocus and continuous focus.

 

The following is correct using the Z6II, I hope that it works the same with the Z6.

If you press the ”i” button, these are the settings furthest to the right in the display. The single-point setting is the one shown as two small square brackets inside two larger square brackets in the top row. The continuous focus setting is shown as AF-C in the bottom row. This setting should keep what is in the focus area focused while the AF is activated even if what you are aiming at moves towards or away from you. 
 

Once you have mastered this basic setting, you can start experimenting with the more advanced settings, and perhaps separating AF activation from the shutter button.

#78477 Flash

Not with any automation. You can, however, use a hotshoe adapter to isolate the communication pins on the flash and camera from each other and use it manually.

What focus mode do you use when the camera doesn’t track?

Can you show us an example shot?

 

I wouldn’t be surprised if I am one of those members that Pete mentioned.
