Hi everyone. I am new at this site. I am amateur photograper. My passion is nature photography. I own Nikon F75. This is maximum that I can afford to myself at the moment and in near future have no possibility for better camera. I Have read on this site about MLU. Unfortunately, my camera, has not that "option".
My question is:
1. can I expect to fix sharpeness of a picture in Photoshop if there is no way to lock the mirrow in my camera?
2. If I`d tackle hard my camera to a heavy tripod would it help? Or should I think about different camera anyway?
Any coments, please...
1. Depends. If the lack of sharpness is small, you could compensate in PS. However, sharpening in PS is not actually sharpening. It is merely increasing edge contrast giving the illusion of more sharpness. You can only fix sharpness if detail exists to begin with.
2. A sturdy (not necessarily heavy) tripod helps allot as does not extending the center column if possible. A cable release is a must too. Simply wait a few seconds for the tripod to settle down and then trip the shutter with the cable release.
If you are using short lenses, then MLU won't be much of a benefit if at all. Focal lengths beyond 50mm is where MLU is most useful.
