When we talk about the feud between giant DSLR brands of the world, the focus of the discussion will surely not far from Canon vs. Nikon as the two top competitors. Both has had a long history in the world of photography and they both have a complete lens collection and DLSR classes of APS-C sensor and full-frame sensor. The DSLR with APS-C sensors are also known as the crop-sensor DSLR because of the crop factor the sensor has. Talking about APS-C DSLRs, we know that the most basic to the most advanced of DSLR range from 500 to 2000 USD. This time, I’ll review the specs of the two best-seller brands and their hottest release in the APS-C DSLR market.
The Nikon D300s may have only been an HD movie feature upgrade from its D300 predecessor, but the D300s still holds the title as Nikon’s most advanced APS-C DSLR. This semi-pro camera has superiority in its AF points with a maximum of 51 points, and the D300s is equipped with dual memory card slots. On the other hand, the Canon EOS 7D is a surprise release by Canon after deemed unsuccessful with their EOS 50D. The EOS 7D has become the APS-C DSLR with the highest resolution in history, with its 18 MP resolution (50% higher than the Nikon D300s’ 12 MP) and the EOS 7D fixed the main flaw of the 50D in its few amount of focus points (from 9 points to 19 auto focus points).

The Nikon D5100 also gets the company’s EXPEED 2 engine, along with a vari-angle 3-inch monitor and 4fps continuous shooting. Read the rest of this entry »
An image sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. Early sensors were video camera tubes but a modern one is typically a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) active pixel sensor. Today, most digital still cameras use either a CCD image sensor or a CMOS sensor. Both types of sensor accomplish the same task of capturing light and converting it into electrical signals. CCD vs CMOS. That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler to choose quality and cost or to choose features and energy efficiency. Should it be CCD (charge coupled device) or CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor)when making your digital camera choice? Read the rest of this entry »

UV filters are the must-have accessories for a new lens. Physically, this filter resembles an ordinary transparent round piece of glass. And there’s also an extra coating on the pricier branded UV filters like in HOYA, Tiffen, B+W, and others. This extra coating adds extra quality to the filter. The general use of a UV filter is to lessen the haze effect; which is a bluish colorcast of the light spectrum. In the analog days, UV filters were crucial because analog film were very sensitive to UV rays. In these digital days, CCD and CMOS have replaced the analog film, so is the UV filter still important? Here is a bit of an explanation that may help clarify: Read the rest of this entry »
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).
