How do you get it sharp
I tried to take some photos of some buildings at night. I used a Canon 60d on a tripod. I set the mirror up and set the shutter release on a 2 min delay. I had the iso at 100 (to minimize noise). The lens is EF-S 18-135mm. Stabilisation was on.
Looking at the results there still seems to be camera movement (see attached).
To get it looking really sharp do you have to manipulate the image on the computer?
By the way the white wiry lines around the spires are birds hunting insects attracted by the light.
Hi all: Has anyone used these batteries? I am looking to add a couple of spares for my Sony A6500. They are np-fw50. Manufacturers price is about $60 for one. Amazon and other places offer two Wasabi batteries and a charger for $25.
A Bald Eagle waiting to catch a salmon.
Yesterday was cold (25 degrees) and partly cloudy when I took this Bald Eagle photo.
I used 560mm and the distance was about 125-150 feet to the eagle.

Canon 24-105 lens
Hi......I'm new and my name is Danny and this is my first post. I have a Canon 7D Mark ll. I read a review on the 24-105 by a very well known photography guru who said it was senseless to use this lens on a cropped censor. I have a 50mm, 10-18mm and 100-400 and I would like to get a zoom for general purpose use. I would appreciate any advice you might offer. Thank you.
The moon--cell phone attached to a telescope
I was wondering what kind of a picture you could get by attaching a camera phone to a telescope, so purchased an adapter and mounted my phone to one of my scopes and tried for the moon. Here is what I got. Feel free to check out the download.
m4/3 decisions...I'm torn
Ok, so I just had the discussion with wife, and I have the go ahead for the em1ii, if I want (her present to me).
Or...we also discussed me keeping the em1 and get the equivalent $$$ in glass (but I'd have to quit sending her em1ii emails). I do miss my old O7-14 f4, 50f2 and 50-200swd w/ec-14...and I've always been intrigued with the 150f2.
I do honestly feel that my current em1 is still quite the capable camera, but there's always the mystique of a new camera/body. I like to print big (larger than 30") and while can (and do) tile multiple images to achieve the resolution I desire, it sure would be nice with the highrez mode to not have to do that.
The only caveat is that $350 of has to be used on amazon (due to gift cards). The rest can be used wherever, and I'm not opposed to going the used route to stretch the money. She also said I need to take more time to go shoot...did I mention she's a keeper?
New em1ii and a couple of batteries and I'd also need a camera plate for my tripod
Or a combination of the following glass options
40-150 pro w/emc-14
150mm f2 with ec20
What would you do (keeping in consideration my gear list in my signature)?
I have a Canon prx 100 printer that will soon need ink. Can anybody recommend ink other than canon that produces good results and priced reasonably. Amazon has reasonably priced ink but unsure of the quality. And while I'm here, a big thank you to all HH contributors. I've learned so much from you folks and I greatly appreciate your expertise, advice and helpful comments.thank you!!!
Shooting in raw
I've read shooting in raw is better but is there any apps or programs that are free to edit raw pictures? If you are just uploading pictures to a website is it really necessary to shoot in raw? I've been shooting in raw and jpeg and have not noticed a difference when looking at the pictures on my computer.
