What you should look for a new camera
What you should look for a new camera If you are on a hobby or a career in photography, you have a variety of models and functions for selection. Instead of getting lost in the sea of possibilities, or if one with the wrong model, you can move on its decision on certain features that are tailored to the specific requirements that you have. The choice of camera can be reduced to a few important criteria for evaluation. The parameters are presented here as a simple guideline to keep in perspective of the functions that you may have in your camera system. These parameters are available on 2 levels:-Based on the degree of functional use of available functions on the basis of the type of photo you want to search -> Based on the degree of utilization of the available features of a person as your camera model usually responds with the following words of praise. ? Incredible ease of use? ? User controls? ? Intelligent and well designed? ? Excellent value for your money? ? Lightweight and compact? These are the types of terms that you received from the camera on owners who are satisfied with their camera models. These superlatives can tell what people in general, or could opt for a world in the camera. There is a broad assessment on the basis of elements of design, size and affordability, before taking a decision to purchase should be a little 'later on and the nature of the functions available. If you do not attempt to understand the functions, there is the danger that stuck with a model that does not suit your needs. Here are the features at a glance what you should focus on how the functions have to be careful, if you have a camera system. -> Properties to find after 1 The objective is by far the most important device in the camera. The quality of the lens ensures the sharpness of images. The camera is determined by the length (in mm), also known as the focal length of the lens. It is the standard 50 mm focal length of a lens. A short-term goal is known as a wide angle and it's usually by landscape photographers. A lens with focal length greater than 50 mm is a telephoto lens and is especially useful for professional photographers, the images of the hostel. There are also cameras with a zoom lens. A zoom lens has different focal lengths, so as to have a lens capable of many focal lengths. In short, if you have a zoom lens the subject can be larger or smaller frame. For example, a wide-angle lens allows for a range of focal lengths below 50mm, or a telephoto zoom offers a greater range of focal length. Some superior zoom can be downloaded from telephoto to wide standard. The power of the zoom is the magnification from a lower focal length of a higher goal and is a 2x, 3x and so on. Some lens tips: - A 100 mm or 50 mm lens is considered sufficient for most non-professional hobby users. The professionals usually go for telephoto lenses of 200 mm or more. A lens with higher focal length costs a lot more. Most beginners don? T need to invest in a telephoto lens. - Check whether the camera is compatible with the selection of targets that the manufacturer of the model has to offer. Most manufacturers have hundreds of lens options and the tender for the slow progress varies as in the photograph. The camera is compatible with lenses of greater focal length and speed. If you plan to upgrade your camera by buying another model from the same manufacturer, both for compatibility with older accessories so that it is possible some of the existing lens with you and save an extra charge. 2nd Depth of field preview button A depth of field preview button is a necessity if you want a better concentration. It allows you to determine the range at the center of the photo. This area is also known as? Depth of field?. If you focus the camera in "Preview" is a useful tool that can help focus and depth of field in different shots. 3rd Resolution image sensor in digital cameras, no film in use, but this is much more through a device called the image sensor. The image sensor renders colors, is sensitive to light and the device is in pictures in small dots on the surface. The resolution is a measure of the sharpness and level of detail in the picture. The resolution of images is set in a row and is in mega-pixels. Are high-end professional cameras use a sensor image resolution of about 12 mega pixels and the more advanced professional models, up to almost 14 mega pixels. In the middle of the range you have camera models with a resolution of 2 pm p.m. 6 megapixels. For large size prints of superior quality, you should use for models with a resolution of more than 3 megapixels. At the lowest end, there are examples of 1 megapixel or less and the sharpness of the photos is slightly lower compared to cameras with higher resolution image sensor. Lower pixel models are best suited for small format prints. 4th If you can auto-bracketing can be a very useful tool. Auto bracketing can use the camera automatically for exposures up to 3 or 5 cameras in some loans to the same pitch by varying the exposure value (EV) to lighten or darken the image. Each image will be exposed to something else, and this is a great tool for capturing the perfect moment. You can count on at least one of the images displayed properly. This tool is especially useful for professional photographers. 5th If the sound quality of the photograph is the priority, if you have a camera, so it's best to opt for a digital camera. Photographic prints of scenes captured on a digital camera, a level of sound quality that is far superior to the best quality traditional prints. 6. There are sophisticated camera models available today, the motion capture and audio-visual images. If you want to go beyond static images and capture the first steps of a child or during family reunions, then you should choose a camera with these advanced features. There will be a better experience if you go Memory Lane. Kodak EasyShare LS753 Zoom digital camera is such a model, the audio-visual capabilities. -> Properties, so that they gently Some features or functions can not become an obstacle for a photographer. Be careful if your camera system and select the models, if these disadvantages minimized or not present. The knowledge of these issues is important if you want to create a smart choice. 1. If you want a camera with a zoom lens for an optical zoom, not digital zoom. The optical zoom provides variable focal length that a digital zoom only increases the magnification in the central part of the picture. If the camera has both optical and digital zoom, then make sure that you can use the digital zoom 2. Some cameras are not all that effective in low light conditions and dark places, the flash is not strong enough. Make sure that you do not? T select the model 3. The transition between modes of exposure should be a simple one-step process. In some models shifting between? Shutter priority? e? Aperture Priority? takes longer because it is somewhat 'more complex, involving more than one step in the process of modal shift. 4th In some camera models in the problem of dust in the film. Pay attention to all the beautiful clear openings that can cause this problem. 5th Slow and noisy Auto Focusing can be irritating. Are you looking for a quieter model. 6. The camera is on the four main exposure modes: automatic, manual, aperture priority and shutter priority. There are many more models with exposure modes, but only if your model needs to justify the confusion with a variety of modes of exposure. -> According to the type of photography groped for the search ads to choose the camera and the features that you need a little 'depends on the type of photo you want. 1. If you live in Wildlife Photography, for a camera, the center of measurement. Center of measurement is obtained from wildlife photographers for the flexibility it offers. With the center-weighted meters the focus is at the center of the frame as the meter reads the light reflected from the subject. The sensitivity of the meter is centered on the situation in the center of the frame. You can change the size of the sensor field to 8 mm, 15 mm or 20 mm, on the basis of the size of the subject and the distance to you. Nikon has been credited with the world of the first Center-Weighted Meter. 2nd For landscape photographers, the most important features are spot-meter, a wide angle lens and a memory block of exposure. These three functions are used as instruments for the perfect landscape. The place of meters enables creative thinking, if your shot because the spot meters has an important role to play, if you want meters only a small part of the scene. The post allows meters to concentrate the meter sensitivity to a certain place of the scene during the exposure. With a meter can be placed in terms of time, but its application in the realization of creative ideas is the time. For example, with a stroke of the sun on the sea or in the recording of the structure of snow on a summit with the help of a meter spot. The memory exposure lock is the mechanism by which you can spot meters reading. The camera is locked in reading when a call. A wide-angle lens is able to highlight objects in the foreground or the middle. Landscape photography the tendency is to usually have an object like a tree, landmark or person in the foreground to emphasize the magnitude of the figure against the distant elements in the picturesque environment. This is deep in photography and wide-angle lens makes this possible. 3.Those who are in trekking and mountaineering, and are in search of functions that is adaptable in contrasting light conditions, such as fire at night time or in the early hours of the moing sunrise or the sun, together, should be for a feature known as? Multi-segment measurement?. The multi-segment display divides the image into different sectors and takes into account the different shades of color in the scene. 4th If you're an inveterate traveler then the camera size and weight, is probably one of the most important considerations. Compact, lightweight, ideal for cameras are traveling or trekking. 5th Digital cameras have developed a rapid pace in their abilities. Available for you, that the cameras can offer? Programmed scene modes? for different types of situations, photography, and these options are available within the same model of camera. For example, the Kodak EasyShare LS753 Zoom Digital Camera has about nineteen automatic scene modes. The mode can vary depending on the subject and the scene in front of you, such as - children, snow, beach, lights, fireworks or flowers. This model also has the night shots and the sport mode that allows you to capture, not the problem. If your interest in photography is varied but not? T technical knowledge for the settings for different scenes and themes, and then a digital model with automatic programmed scene modes is the ideal solution. 6. For beginners still leaing the ropes of photography, the criteria for selection should be based on the characteristics that make it easy to use and no more complicated than the process of leaing. For example, some cameras have a viewfinder function LED. This feature allows the camera to the speed that is necessary for a proper exposure. If not? T with the right attitude, the LED goes from green to yellow, a waing that the speed is too slow to ensure a sharp image. This is a form of self-help can be of great help to create a new passion for photography. To summarize, it is essential that you have all your options before making a purchase, no matter how long this process can be. The Inteet is a great opportunity to get information before you buy.
