In Topic: Maximizing sharpness

14 March 2009 - 03:07 AM

Hi guys,

I usually shoot with my Canon 450D with the 60 mm lens from canon. I am often disappointed with the lack of sharpness I get when shooting macro. Is it because of my camera, lens, aperture, light?

Would be really interested to read what you have to say :bye:



One thing that will make it not so sharp is if you have your shutter speed to low, hard to say for you but when I shoot with a 105MM most of the time I am using 1/200th or faster. Also a very steady hand, sound obvious but true, I usually take the shot the split second the focus locks to avoid as much hand movement as I can and then take several shots, or more, you can then pick the sharpest of them all.

I did try a new battery and it did not flood, there was no water in it, now nearly 30 hours and still it flashes.

Its been 30 hours now and I really need to use it but don't want to without the alarm, it saved me a couple of times. I'll just have to wait. thanks

I can tell you this, I use a T3 quite a lot when I shoot macro and have a T5 to, but the depth of field is so small with a T5 that it is very very difficult to use.
