How to Clean Your DSLR Sensor

Sensors allow DSLR cameras to capture light and produce the digital image. It is, in short, the heart of a DSLR camera. Because they are charged, they have a strong tendency to attract dust particles. Properly keeping the lens cap on when the camera is not in use would usually be enough to protect the sensor from dirt. Of course situations may still arise that can dirty up the sensor and this would necessitate opening the camera and cleaning the component.
These notes on cleaning your digital camera are for your reference only. If you choose to clean your own digital camera, you do it at your own risk.

Zooming Photography Technique

Zooming Photography Technique



Zooming is a photography technique that gives the impression of motion in the pictures by changing the focal length of the lens.

Adjustments of focal lengths can only be done in zoom lenses. The zoom lens is a lens that has a range of adjustable focal lengths; such as the 18-55 mm, 16-35 mm, and 70-200 mm.
