the Sigma says f/4.0-f/5.6 and from my reading many surf photographers have recommended f/4.0 (albeit with 600mm not 300mm though )Chris F wrote:what f-stop can you get from the zoom?

So that's ~1 second of RAW sequence and ~4seconds jpeg. I guess the question is. How long does your mate stay on the wave for. I'm guessing that if you turn down the file size/resolution/quality then you can stretch this out longer? Must be nothing more frustrating than missing the best bit of the wave because the camera is buffering. Did it say a buffer time? Think I'm getting hung up on this fps thing though. Like I say. I just hit the shutter once normally. But if I get a longer lens I think I'd definitely use the 6 RAW 1second burst just to make sure I captured a whole turn/move.khudson22 wrote:I think I'll go for the Canon 650D the 5fps lasts for 6raw files or 22jpeg files (I'm assuming this is enough to start out with?)
do you know of any cameras where there is more time - that's not really long enough and no it doesn't say a buffer time. THANK YOUPoo Stance wrote:So that's ~1 second of RAW sequence and ~4seconds jpeg.
Yes I know the camera was on auto focus but at full zoom and wasn't great. I get what you mean about the angle in the third one. It was after that shot I realized I needed to move around more Thank you.Black wrote:I like your second shot. Yo

I bought the 550d from them and love it, it is light but I tramp about the countryside with mine so lightness is good for me. You can always weight your tripod if you need stability.

Isn't 9 point to do with the metering? Don't have a clue about all that sorry.

I'm still new to photography.In regards to the focus the specification is saying 9 point and phase (which I know is better than contrast) but doesn't say about continuous focus in normal shoot mode - but does say continuous focus in video mode - does this mean it will have continuous focus for when I'm shooting 5fps do you know?
