What's RAW?? processor?
See the RAW format as a digital "negative" of your photo.
A RAW processor is a programma to process these RAW files to JPG.
Search on the internet and you will find a lot of information about this.

And as always... Google is your friend. :wink:

Try to use an ISO of 200 or 400ASA this is much better during dark days
100ASA is only to be used in full sun :!:

furthermore it is a golden rule to use shuttertimes of 1/lens mm or higher,
in your case it would be 1/500 which is minimal but prefer a time of 1/750
sec :!:

hope I can help you with this info, instead of breaking you down on this
forum; good luck :D
So i think there are a few different thoughts on what to use for ISO :wink:

Check this in relation to this topic plz

I think you mean "don't go higher than 400 ISO". The higher the ISO, the more noise you'll get.
Duh, that's what i meant 8)

Anyways, if you're a beginner with the EOS 350 shooting in RAW has no much plus. Try to focus making good photo's instead of on processing your photo after you took it. Bad photo's can not be made better in any format of program... :twisted: the basis must be good.

The automatic settings of the EOS, "the green one" and the "most to the left on the knobe" are not as bad as some people claim....

Also the "sport" setting is also a good mode to start with, while photographing (fast) moving aircraft.

Learn step by step, do not start to quickly right away with the manual settings.

I saw you are using the Sigma 50-500mm; i'm using the Sigma 170-500mm, which is in my opinion quite the same lens


Maybe the problem of this lens is that it cannot perform in dark wether
at a zomm range of 500mm because you canoot reach a shutterspeed
of 1/750 sec. I had the same problem with it, sow at these kind of days
I only zoom in to maximum 350-400mm to reach the good shutterspeed;
because when you don't youre picture will become very soft. That's what i
experienced on my pictures; " Know the prestations of your own camera
and especially your lens" :wink:

Hope this info will help you a lot; keep on trying i do the same :!:

My thoughts also!!Its a problem of the last couple of weeks. Since we are getting the short days and the long dusk. In summertime no worries with the Sigma even with a polarisor.

Learning as we speak. Bought the lens first of july so this is my first winter with it. Thanks for youre input again :wink: Keep it commin'.

Next planespotting visit i will try the zoom limitation in contrast to the shuttertime.

Keep u posted :wink:

[quote="Dr.T"]Just a personal question: was it youre lens i tried with that C17 A EHGR??[quote]

No i was not; we met each other for the first time during the base visit of
GRAS at EHGR on october 17th 2006 :D

My conclusion of the lenses we are using is that it is in the wide range from 400 to 500mm it is a "good wether lens". Which means that your images become soft when you use this range during dark Circumstances

But just a quik question Redskin. Do you still use the lens under the 400 mm or do you take a different lens in these dark days??
This last week i tried it to 300 max on a F60. I could realise nice shuttertimes, but not realy the sharpness i would like.

So now i'm wondering about a new <300 mm lens for these dark days. Not just for spotting but random shots outdoors also.

But i know thats a different topic :wink:

I'm just curious how you compensate this negative aspect of the Sigma??

thanks in advance

I only have one big lens and that is my 170-500mm, but i also have a sigma 28-200mm which i'll use when photographing big aircraft or smaller
aircraft over small distance like e.g. runway 28 at EHGR. And yes i use my big lens under the 400mm; because else it was unnecessary to buy a zoom lens :wink:

U R WRONG, Dat is het niet,
...dat was het wel vóórdat het topic verplaatst werd naar het Photography forum. En gezien het feit dat er veel posts zonder fotoos waren, en het meer over de techniek dan over de fotoos zelf ging, is het topic dus naar dit wat meer 'liberale' forum verplaatst.
