Moving Parts in low light
Hello, I am very much an amateur with this type of stuff. I work at a manufacturing warehouse and we are trying to get some good shots of a cavity within a mold when the two parts of the mold separate and eject the part being produced.
Using an Exilim EX-F1 I am running into issues with lighting and zoom. The cavities are relatively small and the shot is only useful if taken while the machine is running (so it must be taken from an angle). This results in difficulty getting a good amount of light to actually go into the cavity, exasperated by the already relatively dim conditions of the factory itself. Furthermore adjusting the zoom seems to drastically throw off the focus to the point where an in-focus shot is not zoomed in enough to see anything worthwhile.
If there are any tips or advice I would greatly appreciate them, and if this is the wrong place to ask something like this then my apologies.
