Hi Russ I could not wait to try out these settings and I have just come in from taking a group of 40 students. This did not work and the faces were not sharp. I am really at a loss. I also did these settings for a scene from a play tonight and the settings did not work for it either.
The group of 40 plus students I got a better result from Manual F6.3 1/250 iso 800 but it was not as sharp as it should be either but better than 1/100 iso 800. I really am trying to get this right please help
No movement, no I am using Canon 580 EX11 flash I tried 640, then 800 and then 1000
Hi Russ it is great being able to chat to you. I am using 18 to 135 EFS Canon IS lens and I was set at the large setting 2nd down on list. Liz
Hi Russ apologies I have not been home for a couple of days I will go into my email and rate your help. Thank you for your patience. I took another photo last night of group of kids 10 wide by 4 deep and used the TV 1/100 and 800 iso as the 1000 is too grainy and whilst the pic is better than I was getting I got better results on auto and it was f4 1/60 iso 400 but still was not as sharp as you would want. So I am still searching for that perfect setting for a large group.
