In Topic: Aquarium photography tips?

23 November 2014 - 08:14 AM

Thanks everyone for the advice!  I ended up bumping my shutter speed to 1/400 to get nicer shots, though I did a bunch of them on lower speeds as well.  Those fish are fast!


Here's my first processed picture:

Thanks as well. I'm going to buy a round rubber lens hood to hopefully work well and not scratch the glass. Also I have to remember to bring some glass wipes with me, in case the glass is all covered with fingerprints!

Thanks! I will be taking the 35mm. Any use in getting the 40mm micro lens?

Does the Wimberley Sidekick work with Manfrotto ball heads?

In Topic: D7100 not as sharp as D5100?

Yes, and sorry about the delay.  Bottom line is that the D7100 is nice and sharp.


I took comparison pictures of a stationary object using both cameras, both with tripod and delayed shutter release, etc.  The D7100 is as sharp or sharper than the D5100.  So likely, it was user error for me earlier (and I was taking pictures of birds, which move).


I took the D7100 with me to Whistler, BC this week and got some nice bird pics which I will hopefully upload soon.
