!@@#$$%^& camera

March 28th, 2011 (01:14 am)

So my small point-and-shoot camera doesn't shoot large enough images for luna_san's book specifications. I pulled out the D5000 and took Trans outside in the great overcast light, took 53 photos and NONE OF THEM are worth shit.

I cannot get the camera to focus where I want it to focus. It supposedly focused on the face but the quality is terrible.

The best photo has his chest in-focus.

I need to try a few other settings but I'm really upset this expensive camera doesn't have the focusing functions my cheap camera has. And it continues to want to RECORD VIDEO when I forget I'm using the big camera and try to use the button like I would the little one.

I need to figure out how to disable the video camera.

Back to the book, but even following the book is not working.

Honestly, I think the camera is a dud, like a guy I talked to at All-Con suggested.

Personal preference: can you use manual focus?

I've tried everything. I'm still going to work with the camera but I'm going to throw a lot of Photoshop filters at whatever image(s) I get so I don't have to worry about sharpness as much.
