December 20, 2002 tips & tricks

A couple of things…. If you are shooting photos for a story and you want to do a slow zoom it can often be hard as any movement you create in the pan handle is generated through the lens. Try removing your remote zoom from your pan handle(if you use one) and then control your zoom. No movement will generate down the lens giving you a very smooth zoom. Also, I often get asked to shoot pics off the computer. This is okay if you have clear scan or want a particular look, but if not, right click on the image, save it to disk and get graphics to put it in the system. They also have the ability to play with the image, such as enlarging or croping or adding another graphic.
