    well, have you tried longer times and higher iso? you should also look into extension tubes or close up diopters for macro work. good luck.

    are you trying to get a timelapse of the moon across the sky though? that means moving the spot along of course, and when viewed in motion the spot may call some attention if not following exactly.

    oh, i see. technically the stars are obviously much brighter than the moon but so small and diffracted both through atmosphere and glass, that they need extra exposure. i would expose for the moon...

    that's not wrong, it's perfectly correct and predictable. slower shutter, blown out moon. the solution is to not set the shutter too slow. or am i missing something?

    sure, that's why i wrote resolution and such. it doesn't change my point, which is you can always do something with what you have. when we did the feature it was the only 24p dslr available, then...

    I'm starting to like that idea more and more. when i've shot film i've always decided upon the f-stop and obviously shutter beforehand, and then lit to match. if i can use that workflow and fine...

    i don't know, while sharpness is certainly less of an issue at lower res, it still shows, especially if some of your lenses are sharper and you intercut. i shoot a lot of super 8 and even at that...

    i use the nikkor 24/2.0 and love it. if i need even wider, which for video is rarely, i use the 18-55 kit lens, which is actually optically great even though build quality and handling sucks big time.

    the mapping of stuck pixels was probably not active in video mode, i assume you didn't see them in stills right? another reminder that the video mode is still just an added gimmick to the live view...

    good lenses and good price if in excellent condition, but get a 50/1.8 instead of the 55, half price and more than a stop faster. and i don't know what you're doing but the 85 seems a bit redundant...

    most canon models have manual settings, so do the gh1 and the d7000 (d3s too i think). with the d90 you just move the camera slightly until the flicker goes away, after some practice it's easy. we...

    maybe, maybe not, don't risk it for anything important. no, i don't use the gh1 but no other dslr either actually. it's been film or red for pro gigs and the little leica at home.

    with a rolling shutter it doesn't help to turn off flos, incandescents flicker too, in fact flos on hf ballasts are the only sure way of avoiding this flicker without manual control of shutter speed.

    maybe, maybe not, the problem is you can't be sure. i would never use the d90 for anything that requires continuous shooting. test it. you don't have to shoot, just put it in live view and wait.
