Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Btw, thank you for all your advice. I also received some nice tips from Shaji Mohammed on aperture, but without your initial guidance, finding a camera would of been much harder for me. I'll make sure to post much more tomorrow. Thanks again

@Pckts, Nice images
However, Post your experience in related thread, if one does not exist please make a new one. I have just created a thread for Serengeti national park, http://wildfact.com/forum/topic-wildlife...ional-park

Please re-post your Serengeti experience in this thread. And make new similar thread for other parks in same section (http://wildfact.com/forum/forum-vacations-and-holidays) if it does not exist. In this way in future people will be able to share their visits in respective thread and hence reducing the fatness of this thread.

Glad I could be of any help @Pckts , although I would still consider myself an amateur. Regarding aperture, there is only so much you can do with the consumer lenses we use with small apertures. Sometimes I feel it's better to rent a fast lens than buy a cheaper slower lens.

Just a question, which mode did you operate the camera on?

@Shardul
I was in aperture mode for 90% of the time, only at dusk would I switch to auto. I still don't quite get the trinity (aperture, shutter and iso) but I switched my iso to a  higher limit (400) and that seemed help out quite a bit.

@Pckts When I was starting out, I tried using both the Shutter priority mode and the Aperture mode. What I observed is that on other semi-automatic modes (P & A), the camera would always choose a low SS to compensate the exposure, resulting in a lot of pictures getting motion blur in low light conditions. Once I got a hang of everything, I started using the manual exposure settings with ISO settings on automatic, with a limiter set on ISO 1600. We often don't have time to change the ISO settings since light conditions during a safari can change drastically in a short period of time. After a while, I realized I had been underestimating my camera's low light capacity since images at 4000 ISO were relatively noise free, so bumped the limiter to 4000. That is now my default setting, unless I am trying to deliberately under expose the photograph, or trying long exposure shots.

Np Pckts. However, you should not do exaclty as I say, but test the limits of your camera and see how it handles high ISO. Then see what settings you mostly get to shoot on, and then make them your default settings.
