I recently took delivery of an SX35. This is my first camera without a shutter. And it is doing some things I consider weird.
When I am taking framing pictures in SGP, I am getting what look like trailed/double images. I have never had this before. Specifically, say I am using the "Centering" function in SGP. It takes a picture, figures where it is, and how far it has to move, moves, and takes another picture. That second picture almost always is a double exposure (with streaks connecting the two "stars" which are really one). It kinda works (does the plate solving somehow), and gets me to where I need to go. But it is disturbing to see. What is happening here?
I have theorized that for some reason, since there is no shutter, the camera is actually picking up photons as it slews. Seems to me that at the beginning of each exposure, it should somehow flush the system (zero it out). But maybe it is not doing so.
Alternatively, SGP is starting the exposure before the slew is finished. Of course this is possible, but I have never had the problem before with my QSI.
I also get really ugly "Flats." Maybe this is related somehow.
Anybody have ideas?
