How come sometimes when I take a pic the persons face is out of focus. I know silly question but it bothers me! I will post an example. Is it my lens or me!!
Here is the exif 1/60 shutter f4.5 flash fired:auto, return light detected.It's hard to say much about your problem, Sarah. The example doesn't look too bad to me, but it's a little underexposed, which makes it difficult to see the point of focus on this subject. It would be helpful to know your camera settings from the EXIF. :smile:
IIRC, return light detected means that the flash was used in either iTTL or TTL-BL fill flash, and the camera recognized that and set the exposure accordingly. It doesn't have anything to do with the lens.:smile:Here is the exif 1/60 shutter f4.5 flash fired:auto, return light detected.
Now what does return light detected mean? Is there something wrong with my lens?
Thanks for the possiblilities I was wondering if you could tell me how to find the PDF that tells me how to do this!I beg to differ with the majority here, I don't think you have an underexposure here (I havent looked a the histograms, but it looks alright to me).
Also, with a Flash, you won't notice subject movement unless you go way slower and even then, the bluriness will overlap with the sharp part. The flash freezes the image, so even moving objects at slow shutter speeds will be frozen.
I'm willing to bet you had one of three problems:
1) Not enough light to focus correctly
2) You were too close to the subject (so the lens couldn't focus)
3) Your system has a backfocusing problem.
(1) is unlikely because the D70 does have a helper light which is pretty useful in low light.
If you see this problem often, then I'd try to test the camera for backfocusing with that lens. There's a little PDF going around that helps you determine the focus accuracy.
Off.What you recommend the camera sharpening setting to be?
