nikon d5600 – When shooting RAW + JPEG , is there a way to delete the raw files without deleting the corresponding JPEG, without having to hook it up to PC/laptop?

I am using a Nikon D5600, and many times i am shooting in situations where i do not have a laptop/pc handy.

I want to shoot RAW + JPEG and since it fills up the camera memory card quickly, i want to transfer them through wifi into my android phone, so that i can later on (when i have access to my laptop) move the raw files from phone to laptop for further RAW post processing.

After transferring to phone, i want to delete the bulky raw files from camera, since there is no use having them eating so much space in camera. But i want to keep the corresponding jpeg files intact in camera, for easy viewing of the images in camera.

But i when i try to view the in camera gallery , it only shows the JPEG file, it does not show the RAW file separately. I am assuming, if i delete that, it will delete both the RAW and the JPEG file from the camera. Is there no way to view the 2 separately in camera, so that i can only delete the RAW file ?
Is this camera behaviour of displaying only the JPEG file of shots taken in JPEG + RAW mode common across all nikon models ?

Is the only way to delete the raw files and leave the corresponding JPEGs intact in the camera, through using a PC ? Is there no way to do this in-camera ?

fujifilm xt3 not recording images after shooting, only in video mode

New camera, no more than 100 pictures taked, seems that the camera was working ok. But suddenly stop working, (not recording new shootings). In Video mode works fine.
I tried most of the options and modes, exchanged memory cards, no success.

Does ETTR ( Exposing to the Right ) provide any benefit while shooting in JPG ? Or is it only beneficial when shooting RAW?

I generally only shoot RAW when shooting in tricky light situations. Otherwise i just shoot JPEG . Should i be doing ETTR for the JPEG shooting as well ? Or is it only a technique that is useful when shooting RAW ?

nikon – Why does my camera have a delay before shooting?

I have a Nikon D7200 with a AF-S Nikkor 18-105 mm lens. For some reason, when I take a photo, it opens the shutter for a second then closes it; the photo produced is when the shutter closes. I’m confused why it takes a second to take a photo. Even when I manually focus it it has this delay. To make it weirder, it has a 2 second delay on live view. I’ve tried making my shutter speed as fast as possible, using sports mode, turning of RAW, but nothing works. Does anyone know why my camera takes so long to take a photo? My 12 year old Canon 1000D took photos in about 0.1-2 seconds.

product photography – What causes color artifacts on the strings while shooting guitars?

To anyone reading this in the distant future 2021 and beoynd.

You can also remove the aliasing by capturing red, green and blue separately.

Assuming you are using a tripod, you can shoot with color filters or gels in front of the camera. (Or gels in front of strobes, but that requires a pretty dark room.)

Take one shot per red, green and blue color. Either shoot in black and white on the camera, or convert each shot to black and white in post.

Then, merge the three layers, with each layer representing red, green and blue. This can be done in Photoshop or with tools such as ImageMagick.

This will remove any aliasing, but requires that the setup is stable enough to not move the camera or subject between exposures.

The idea is not a new one.

sony – I am shooting video at 200 ISO but the video is still really noisy. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Noise is not caused by a certain ISO setting. High ISO isn’t really what causes increased noise. The lower amount of light we usually allow into the camera when using higher ISO is what causes noise. If you limit the light to the same level at ISO 100 that you would use to properly expose for, say ISO 3200, and then try to boost those almost black shadows by five stops in post, you’ll see the same thing as using ISO 3200 with the same exposure time (Tv) and aperture (Av) when shooting.

For more, please see:

Why would using higher ISO and faster shutter speed yield more noise than using lower ISO and slower shutter speed?

Should higher ISOs really be preferred (all other things being equal)?

Regardless of whether you are shooting still images or video, if you want to decrease the amount of noise in a shot you need to increase the amount of light you’re letting into the camera. The options you have for doing this are:

  • Use a wider aperture
  • Use a longer exposure time
  • Add light to the scene

olympus – Can I continue shooting when film camera counter was reset to 1 after opening film door?

First off sorry for the bad terminology but I’m a newbie and would really appreciate some help – I’ve bought my first film camera, it is an Olympus MJU zoom 70 from an as-is sale and everything seemed to be working fine.

I took 9 shots with it already but the lens got stuck while I was playing with the zoom functions. I couldn’t turn the camera off, and I read online that I should open the film door to reset the whole camera. I pressed the release door button (while holding the door down so the door wouldn’t open and films inside wouldn’t get exposed to light), and it managed to “unstick” my camera lens, but I didn’t know that it would reset the film counter back to 1.

I honestly don’t know how a film camera works, so questions below:

  1. Can the films inside still be used?
  2. Can I continue taking photos with it as per normal?

I don’t really want to get the film developed right now as there are still quite a lot of exposures left and it’s quite expensive to get it developed where I live. Thanks!

intervalometer – Why does my Nikon camera stop short of the selected number shots when interval shooting?

I found the passage below in the Reference Manual and was wondering if the problem might be that I did not set the interval long enough to allow the camera to record some images to the memory card:
“Because shutter speed and the time needed to record the image to the memory card may vary from shot to shot, intervals may be skipped if the camera is still in the process of recording the previous interval.”

Yes, this surely is the case.

I discovered myself conspiracy about shutter speed recently. I needed to photograph long series and found out that camera takes photos gaplessly if I set interval to 32 seconds and exposure time to 30 seconds.

I was extremely disappointed that two cameras from different brands expose not for 30 seconds but for 32 seconds! It looks like cameras set the exposure using power of two divider or multiplicator to get exposure times other than 1″ to get exposure times closest to traditional 1/125, 1/500, 13″, 1/15, whatever, but I am not sure in that.

powershot – Why does my Canon SX260HS shut down while I am shooting?

I can take like 2 shots then it shuts down. Lens closes. I press restart and then the same thing happens. I miss a lot of shots while restarting. Anything I can do?

This is the message:”A camera error has occurred. Will shut down. Restart camera. E32″

Powershot SX260HS The camera just shuts down while I’m shooting.

autofocus – Half press on Nikon D90 triggers shooting

I’m starting to learn photography and, in one of the videos I watched, the guy said that its good to first half press the shooting button (on auto focus settings and P mode) and then full press to get the photo. But, in my D90, when I half press the button, it automatically shoots when it finds focus. How can I disable it, so I can find focus with half press, correct the photo and then full press to take the photo?

All settings are default, except Autofocus -> a1 -> Single point
