    Re: New D500: All Shots Blurry

    As a beginner, I used P a lot, adjusting the wheels to see what happened to the other parameters.

    You can always put it in P and spin the wheels until your preferred A shows in the viewfinder, then if there's enough shutter speed you will get a useable picture.

    i do understand the desire for A mode, I use it a lot to keep my cheap lenses in their good range.

    Is it just me? I have a helluva time using A or S modes. Exposure all over the place. I could use some tips.

    I use manual most of the time now. I thought maybe A or S might make my wildlife photography a little easier.

    i am the same Carolyn, Manual all the time, never tried anything else. I am trying Slow shutter speed a bit more now (dark nights is driving this) lol

    for the original poster, what i did to help me understand this (exposure triangle) was to read the exif data on other peoples pictures and i applied these, then i started varying them a little to see what changed. I went from black pics to whiter then blurry before it clicked. From using a D60 in auto mode to Manual on the D7000.

    Its a journey we all had to take. Stick with it, you will reap the rewards soon.

    to get a clear shot you need to make sure your shooting technique is good , as a rule shoot the shutter at around what your focal length is on the lens times 1.5 for the crop sensor , so for instance if your shooting a shot at 300mm you need about 1/450 shutter as its really 450mm , when your shooting technique is good the vr allows you to shoot much slower shutters then focal length , i shot the 200-500 at 500mm so 750mm on the 500 at 1/125 and they were sharp but that is a lot of experience shooting

    The basic idea of shutter speed = to focal length is a good starting point, i do however struggle to see the need in most cases to increase it due to sensor size, a 500mm lens is a 500mm lens on any sensor size its only the FOV that changes.
    To explain my reasoning you put a 500mm lens on a FX OK I/500th as starting SS, now the center DX area of the FX sensor is seeing the same 500mm FOV the DX sensor would, do you increase your SS because of that.
    Things are different if you take pixel density rather than sensor size into account, a DX sensor with a higher pixel density may require a pro-rata higher shutter speed.

    Just my thoughts
