Understanding Codes - DSLR Camera Lenses



As we first enter the world of DSLR cameras, one of the confusing aspects is trying to translate the meaning in lens labels. In this entry, I would like to explain the various models of lenses and what that entails. For this entry, I will use Canon lenses as the case study.

- Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6 IS

Canon EF-S 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6 IS



This zoom lens is usually included as part of the entry DSLR (such as the Canon 1000D, 450D, 500D, and others) starter kit.

Canon EF-S: This means that this lens model is designed especially for DSLRs with cropped sensors (in comparison to the full frame sensors). These lenses cannot be mounted on a full frame DSLR body, such as the Canon 5D or 1Ds. Read the rest of this entry »

Ten Things You Should Know about Auto Focus

The Auto Focus (AF) System in a camera found in the 1980’s is an important discovery in the world of photography and has had a major impact in bringing convenience to photographers. Without the Auto Focus, we would have to manually adjust the focus on the lens to really precisely focus on the objects we want to photograph (commonly referred to as manual focus). Now that the Auto Focus feature isn’t anything special anymore (except on cellphone cameras), do you really know the ins and outs of this most important feature?

Basic FAQ for Amateur Photographers



1.With a limited budget, what camera should I buy?
If you’re working with a budget of under $500, buy a pocket (point-and-shoot) camera that has Manual Settings feature. This feature will help acquaint you with Speed and Aperture.
Be confident in buying a pocket camera; because the price tag of the camera doesn’t accommodate best shooting angles. The camera also can’t show you which composition is best or give you ideas of what to shoot even if it costs $3000. The quality of the end-product is determined by the photographer.
If you’re working with a budget in the rage of $500 to $1000, try to find a prosumer DSLR with a . If your budget is between $1000 to $3000, choose a semi-professional camera with a prime (fixed) lens. Read the rest of this entry »

Your Nikon D90 digital camera offers professional-quality features like 11-point autofocus, Live View, and the ability to shoot HD video. The first DSLR capable of shooting HD movies (720p at 24fps), the D90 was Nikon’s core enthusiast-level offering until the arrival of the D7000. It is built around a 12MP sensor very closely related to that used in the D300S, and – one of several features to ‘trickle down’ from higher models – it also offers the same highly acclaimed 3.0-inch VGA screen as the D3/D300.

Don’t Hesitate to Use High ISO When Photographing

Posted by oneslidephotogaraphy On September - 1 - 2014

Use High ISO when Photographing

Use High ISO when Photographing



We often use high ISO (above 800) when faced with these situations: in low lighting, when we need a high shutter speed, when we don’t want to use the flash, and when we didn’t bring a tripod to a photoshoot. The biggest concern we have when increasing ISO to more than 800 is the visibility of noise in the results; tiny spots scattering through out the photograph.
But you can now rest easy, because now that concern continues to be minimized with the advancement of time and technology.

Here are a few reasons to be more confident when using those high ISO settings:

1. The advancement of the Camera Technology.
The majority of new generation SLRs are equipped with a very reliable noise reduction technology. We can now shoot at an ISO of 1800 and still get a satisfactory result. As far as I know, almost every DSLRs available from Nikon or Canon, from the beginner cameras to the pro cameras, are great at getting rid of noise due to high ISO. Now, even high quality compact cameras like the Panasonic LX3 (or the latest LX5) is equipped with this noise reduction technology as well. Read the rest of this entry »
