I’ve read the long thread that followed the astrology question but that thread went into all directions. Although it started with trying to take pics of the norhtern light here, I have a simpler question. I don’t want to discuss the hardware, I know a phone cam is not a replacement for a proper camera, I am just trying to get the best out of what is in hand. I only recently got the FP4 and have not had the time to find out about all the settings.
All pictures of the northern light were pitch black, and a test with a garage with a light only brough up a very dim part of the image. As if the light sensor is not working.
Inside a dimly lit room I tried the settings and it was curious to see that (in the stock camera app, Pro mode) when setting the shutter speed to 1/8 the preview got brighte and setting it to 1/4, 1/3 and 1/2, the preview was black, as if it was too high for the camera or app to process. Has anyone seen that?
I now have the FV-5 Lite app, see what that does. Any tips on the right settings for taking pictures in the dark? Or any other camera apps?
And a second question… The 48MP photos are 8000x6000 but when zooming in they don’t seem to be sharper, as if the image was just blown up digitally. Can I clean the sensors in a better way? Some settings I am unaware of to make the result look better?
