Can someone tell me how to capture GID images with my phone?

Post by starkravinmad » Tue Mar 26, 2013 7:35 am

I've tried so many ways but can't get it to "show the glow". I have so much cool GID stuff and just bought a black light, but what's the point if I can't show it off on the boards, right? ;-)

Not sure if it matters, but I have an Android Nexus. Thanks!

Step 1: Access internet browser
Step 2: Go to amazon.com
Step 3: Buy a camera that has an adjustable shutter speed, or at least a "fireworks" setting
Step 4: Wait
Step 5: Use your new camera to take an extended shutter image


All snarkyness aside, the reason it doesn't work is that there isn't enough light exposing the picture. Your camera phone is very rutimentry, and won't be capable of taking low light images.

There may be a chance you have a "brightness" setting. Try bumping it all the way up to the brightest.

Another less sarcastic option is to get a really strong blacklight, and keep it close to your pieces. There may be enough light given off then. Hope that helps.
I'd rather be good than popular. You want it, come and get it.

You do realize I'm a woman, right? We don't take sarcasm well. We store it in a tiny crevice of our brain and use it against you seven years later when you least expect it.

Actually think I have that 'fireworks' thingy - will look into it, then sen you a pic of every GID figure I have...on the hour...every hour...for a week. ;)

In a different life, I would call you wife. Good luck with the pics!

I too have a Galaxy Nexus and I always want to take pictures of the moon and what not since I spend a lot of time outside at night. You will never get a good picture because no matter how steady your hand seems it will shake and make things blurry. The key is to find a stabilization method so nothing shakes and the camera has enough light to take in to capture your picture in such low light. Outside of purchasing a camera you can find cheap devices for your phone such as a small stand similar to a tripod. Another thing is zoom. Because the cameras on phones generally suck the less zoom the better. I'm no expert, I've only done this by trial and error. :?

For that, it helps tremendously to use a timer of 2-5 seconds, because the act of pushing the screen with your finger or thumb to take the photo moves the camera slightly. Sitting on the ground and resting the camera against your knees while using this trick does wonders, and almost elimates the need to carry around a tripod.

I never did think about using a timer. Good to know and thanks for the tip.
