I was beginning to think Elsie’s manual mode might be nonfunctional, because I couldn’t get an outdoor shot that wasn’t a blank white frame. Then I cranked the shutter speed all the way to 1/2000 (far as she can go) and got these. The first one was with an f-stop of 8.0, the second with 4.0.
But when I shot the river in apterture priority mode earlier today, setting the f-stop at 8.0, Elsie chose a shutter speed of 1/1000. Go figure.
Yes, these are different riverscapes (same river though) and different focal lengths and times of day, But I got that same white screen of death at both sites/times, until I cranked up the shutter speed.
Have also been messing with the manual focus mode a little, but it’s really hard to see in bright sunlight. I need to experiment with it more in lower-light situations.
