Need help on my camera

Help me… I have a canon power shot sx540 any advice on settings or do you know any good starter cameras for spotting that are at the most 300$

@AndrewWu @Moritz could maybe help

I’m new and I can’t pm sorry about the topic

No problem, they should comment here when they are on the IFC the next time

Good settings to go for with spotting, at least what I use, in good weather would be using Av mode with f8.0, maybe a bit more or less depending on light and ISO 100 to start with. If light doesn’t allow for these settings, choose a lower number like 7.1, 5.6 or whatever or increase the ISO.

When it comes to the camera itself I don’t know the Powershot but from a quick glimpse online it could work for spotting if you are not horribly far away and especially considering your budget limit.

So AV mode all the time?

Another tip in looking for good shots is its all about the lens. Yes you may want a good camera but try and invest more of your money in a lens

Is it more suitable for #real-world-aviation:spotting?
