Tired of blurry pics?? You want sharp images?? This is the tipster for you - easy, cheap and effective.

This tip is mostly for beginners but i think can be helpful for everybody, what you need? :

  • your camera
  • measure tape
  • 2 minutes of your life

First of all take a look to the focus settings of you camera, in my case (LC-A+) i have .8m, 1.5m, 3m, and infinite now knowing that take your measure tape and measure your extended arm and then both arms

Keep that in mind every time you are taking pictures until you get used to that distance and in a couple of days or weeks (depends how often you use your camera) you will have no need to measure distance with your arms.

Now turn off you computer and go shoot shoot shoot!!!!!!!!!!

    So simple yet I know it will make such a huge difference. I'm hopeless at estimating lengths and this will help a bunch! Thanks for posting:)

    I know that my arm is approx. 0.8m, 1 large step is 1,5m and 2 large steps 3m... so it's easy to choose the right setting :))
