Im pretty new to photography, just started like 2 weeks ago.
Learning the basics and technical stuff, however after doing a photo-shooting test run i found out that, at low lighting conditions, i couldn’t take sharp shots, the image come out blurred.
Im using Aperture priority mode, with most of the configuration / settings on auto (since im new), like auto white balance, AF-A, auto-ISO, and other necessary defaults.
What setting am i missing? I know the model is quite old, but im trying it out before getting my own DSLR, so is it that old models like such dont offer options to help shooting good shots at low light area’s ? What can i do to solve this problem?
Sorry for asking such basic / newbie questions.
Appreciate any help :-)November 26, 2012 at 2:44 pm #15502
I own a D80 myself. Shooting at night with a camera like D80 can be a challenge. Here are your options:
- Camera basics and shooting technique: Things like holding the camera steady, using a tripod etc. go a long way in taking care of things like blur.
- Upgrade to a lens that allows a wider aperture.
- Upgrade your camera to D7100 or better (or better yet, go fullframe).
- Shoot with a negative exposure compensation (anything between 0 to -2 is ok). Later you can recover the exposure during post-processing I recommend Nikon capture NX2 for this.
Hope this helps.
