Hi Ian

Yep even the camera got dizzy.The tripod callapsedand the camera fell about a meter on the carpet.No apparent damage.Its working Ok.

You have to focus on the bright areas and then centre the shot properly.

Bye

I've seen the challenge on another thread but I think it would be good for all of us with the Kyocera to have a bash at different things.

It gives us all something to try if we have a C.R.A.F.T. moment and the ideas dry up.

We can also help each other out with settings and the like.

Hi TC3



I think these two shots are quite good. You used a tripod I think?

Bye

I had a tripod.....the first pic shows car tail lights and was taken at a shutter speed of 4 seconds....no way i could take a shot like that at 100 iso with out a tripod.....the second shot was also with a tripod but the camera is not perfect and gives the odd slightly out of focus shot...as do most cameras. White balance set manually in both and made a huge difference....

Tony,

What did you use to manually set the white balance? do you just point the lens at something white in that spot and light?

Ian

I carry a white card in my camera case for tricky lighting conditions that affect white balance but on that occasion i used the light bulb settings as the lights gave off a strong yellow cast
