Hello Everyone! I have a suggestion for a new video for DSLR Tips with regards to shutter speeds. All DSLR cameras these days have shutter speeds between 30s and 1/4000 or 1/8000s and also have Bulb. How about a video on the things that can be done using the bulb setting. I spoke to several people but none knew what sort of shots or effects can be achieved using the bulb setting. Thanks!

Gordon, great videos by the way; your feature on the Olympus E-510 persuaded me to purchase the DSLR a couple of months ago and I couldn't be happier with it.
I was wondering if there is any possibility that you might be adding any sports photography videos to DSLR tips with regards to rugby, football or cricket for instance?
Cheers

Thanks! And welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

Sports and more action workshops are in the pipeline... is there any specific effect you were trying to achieve? There may be some tips in the Sports and Action forum in the meantime...

I have looked at some of the other topics and they kind of help. The assignments I was needing help with is rugby games at sunset or night time(under flood lights). I want to get a feeling of motion as the players hurtle by as well as some interesting portrait shots of players reactions to dubious referee calls.

Cheers

Weeell, for blurred motion, check out our DSLR tips workshop on blurring race cars - I've used this for other sports and it can work quite nicely. Just experiment with different shutter speeds and moving the camera...

And if you're shooting distant players in low light, you will need to increase the ISO sensitivity - probably to its maximum if you want to freeze the action.

I can exclusively reveal (!) the next DSLR Tips workshop will be about night photography - hopefully later this week... and that a new review is coming to Cameralabs before then!

I second Noceo's suggestion about different autofocus typen.
One shot, servo etc etc.

When to use what, different situations etc.

I would like to see how to use a histogram and the different types of autofocus and when they are best used, and thank you Gordon for producing the best site ever! :D

we got a very detailed tutorial in the software forum, and that is more of a post-shooting thing rather then actual stuff on site. Besides gordon has made overexposure and underexposure guides. making it very similar to HDR photography.
