CP 8800 & FC-E9 ProblemsHi all,
Im using a CP 8800 & FCE9 and am having a hell of a time trying to get the results I want.. Im about ready to say screw it and go get a sigma 8mm & canon D20 which is what easypano suggests.
But before I go spend a load of money I would like to know if its my equipment or me? Can anyone with experience using this lens throw some advice my way?
I have tried:
- Bracketing photos on manual mode with and without the fisheye lens selected
- using the panorama scene mode with and with out the fisheye lens selected
The problems I am experiencing are as follows:
- Lack of uniform lighting, I have tried taking my first shot in the brightest, darkest, and most mid light area in panorama scene mode, I've tried bracketing and AE/AF lock in manual mode and I still often (not always) end up with different colors, particularly on ceilings.
-I also am having problems with light sources, both windows & light fixtures light fixtures are not visible all you see is a giant blob of light and windows are the same, you cannot see out them at all instead all I get is a rectangle of bright light penetrating in and masking out walls, drapes etc. There are not clear lines surrounding windows or light fixtures.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
