If you want to find out how often a camera is used to photograph, then what you can do is check the shutter count number of that camera. This is very useful when you want to buy a used camera.
Shutter Count (SC for short) is the total amount of times the camera’s shutter has been released to record a photograph. Why is SC so important? Because a shutter unit is the barrier between sensor and the mirror that’s used to reflect the image seen through the lens. The reflected image is then recorded in the sensor (CCD/CMOS) located behind the camera. For the mirror to rotate and then the image to be recorded, the shutter has to open and then close each time. Like any mechanical apparatus, the technical design of a camera has limits. There’s an expiration as to how many times the mechanism can function normally before the quality degrades and the apparatus loses function (or breaks down).

Shutter Count is the threshold of how long a camera can be used (how many times the shutter can be triggered). Each type of camera usually have different shutter count limits. For instance, a pro-series camera an average of 500K shutter counts. Entry levels has an average of 300K. Read the rest of this entry » .

The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! The Canon 5D Mark III has officially been launched. This is a professional grade DSLR designed for professionals and amateur photographers dreaming of a light-weight high-quality camera.
The Canon 5D Mark III will go head to head with the recently-launched Nikon D800 in the market. At a quick glance, the 5D Mark III is a formidable opponent for the Nikon D800. This year, Canon emphasizes on speed and photo quality instead of the photo resolution. Nikon decides on emphasizing its photo size and sharpness.
Three to four years ago, Nikon launched Nikon D700 a product that focused on the speed and quality of photograph for low-light environments. But then, due to its mere 12 MP size, many Nikon consumers demanded a camera with bigger resolutions. And the D800 is Nikon’s answer. The Nikon D800 is equipped with a whopping 38 Megapixel resolution, three times that of the Nikon D700.

Interesting photographs are sometimes a result of implementing unorthodox angles, unorthodox in the sense that these angles may not be how the human eye views the world and their surroundings. […]
