Up-Close, Fantastically Clear Pictures


New member
Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering how you all get such good pictures of everything.....underwater cameras, very expensive normal camera.....??

I have a Canon 9Pix and I can't get pictures anywhere close to the ones other people are posting......

Just wondering, will help with future questions!

I asked my friend who is an excellent photographer to come help me :)

I haven't had any luck getting nice clear pictures myself either.

I have a Nikon D50 with a 15-50 f2.8 lens. I bought the f2.8 lens for my kids sports events. the added side benefit has been pretty good tank pic's. I still need to work on my skills. Any substandard pic's are user error at this point. My lens is a Sigma. it is about 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of a Nikkor.

One can take pretty decent pics even with a point & shoot provided you familiarize yourself with the options. adjusting the ISO,picture quality and white balance makes a huge difference. I agree, head over to the photography forum. there is a ton of info over there.
