Hi

Im Trying to take pictures of planes That are atleast 35000 (with contrails)

However when i take a shot with my canon 400d at 300MM F8 ISO-100 nothing comes out

Is there a special setting i should put it on?

Hope some one can help
Thanks
Rob

What do you mean, nothing comes out? Blurry?

At that altitude you'd need 400mm at least unless you want a lot of contrail.

You may want to go to 200 or 400ISO.

This was with a 400mm lens, 1/1250, F8, -0.67 compensation, ISO200 and with a Canon EOS300D

And this is out of the camera

Also, the photo was taken on 3rd Feb 2007, so if you've got a sunny day around midday there's more than enough light.

Having owned this camera and tried the same I would guess that you are out of focus. You do not mention which lens you are using. I used to have a 70-300 f4-5.5 IS and when shooting into the sky the autofocus would hunt like mad. Try selecting the centre spot as the autofocus point to achieve focus then recompose your shot.

Also try dioptre (spelling?) adjustment (the little wheel on the viewfinder).

Failing that can you digress on "nothing comes out".


Or take off the lens cap.  Silly
