Photography Tips - Choosing the right DSLR Camera Bag

A Camera bag is one of the necessities when owning a DSLR camera. And of course the camera bag design significantly differs from ordinary bags. First, a camera bag is usually equipped with several compartments lined with thick foam (the type varies) to protect the contents from tremor and shocks. Models and brands also vary, each with their own advantages. But the main function of a camera bag is of course to carry the camera body, lenses, and a few other necessary accessories when travelling, be it during a walk or during a photo-hunting session.

When travelling long distances, we sometime need a camera bag that’s also able to carry a laptop. But when we’re exploring in open nature or during a photo-hunting session, we would need a more compact camera bag and one that will ease access to the camera when we encounter ever-fleeting moments.
In brief, the following are several tips in choosing the right DSLR camera bag for you: Read the rest of this entry »

Knowing Types of Memory Card

Knowing Types of Memory Card

If you use digital camera or Smartphone, you must know card memory well. On the previous article, I have covered about some tips on preserving this smart card so it can last long and is always ready to be used anytime. But do you know that there are so many types of memory cards in the market? And if you did not know, you may change your card with one that can perform faster with much bigger capacity.

Types of memory card

1. SD (secure digital)
SD card, so far, is the most common memory card. It is compatible for most digital cameras.

2. SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity)
This one is actually an SD memory card but it has bigger capacity to go with. SD card can only accommodate data no more than 2GB while the SDHC card can be used with maximum capacity of 32 GB. These two cards have the same size and shape, but for the type of media, they are different. Though, the slot of your camera can afford to match the SDHC card, yet you have to be careful because if the camera model is made before the card is created then maybe it cannot recognize the card.

3. SDXC (Secure Digital extra Capacity)
This one is classified as SD card but with much bigger capacity and faster speed in processing data. This type of card has maximum size of 2TB (Terabyte). Alike with the SDHC, SDXC card can be attached into regular SD slot, yet most cameras may not be able to recognize this new technology. So it is better for you to do some checking first. Your computer has to be able to read the exFAT type of file in order to be compatible with this card. For now, the operating system of Linux, Windows 7, Mac, OSX (Snow Leopard) and some new versions of Microsoft Windows are compatible with this card.

First Aid Procedures For Cameras Dropped on Surface or Submerged in Water

Camera Submerged in Water

Camera Submerged in Water

Some cameras have been manufactured to be impact, water, and dust resistant. But cameras of that caliber are not many and the prices are also expensive. It is advisable for owners of pocket camera/DSLR camera not classified as impact-resistant to treat their device with caution. But if impact occurs, there are a few suggestions users can follow to act as first aids.

The place and nature of impacts causes different affects on the camera units. There is of course a difference in severity for various places and conditions such as the camera falling on a mattress, a tiled floor, on dirt ground or into a body of water. Impacts with hard surfaces such as a tiled floor causes a higher risk of damaging the pocket camera/DSLR body and lens, which in return decreases the chance of survival of the device. On the other hand, dropping a camera into a body of water may not damage the outer shell of the camera, but may cause the camera to lose all its functionality.

The following are first aid procedures for when a camera unit comes into contact with different objects: Read the rest of this entry »

6 Reasons Why You Have to Buy External Flash

Posted by oneslidephotogaraphy On September - 1 - 2021
Built-in flash vs External Flash

Built-in flash vs External Flash

Photography is originated from Greek language, “photos” which literally means light and “graphein” which means drawing. In other words, it means drawing with light. Lighting is the most important part of photography and there will be times when you will need additional light sources. For example, pop-up flash (or flash featured in every camera), it can only provide a very limited lighting. It does not give you more room for creativity. Then it will be the exact time where you will need external flash.

There are six reasons why you need to take the advantages of having additional flash with you to develop your ability in photography:

1. Flash lamp is able to face more directions
One of the issues of having the built-in flash only is the fact that it can only emit the light from the front part only. Another weakness of it is that this flash light can only shine on one part of the photo only (to the middle) which can make the object look too bright while the surrounding is too dark. Apart from that, this built-in flash has relatively low power.

With additional flash where the lamp can be rotated and tilted, you can get rid or fix the minuses of built-in flash. Because the flash lamp’s position can be adjusted (up, down, right, left, and etc.), you can reflect the light and spread it so it will not get too severe when it reaches the object. You can use any kind of surface surrounding you to reflect it like wall, ceiling, a reflector, and etc.

If it is for a certain reason, you got nothing to use as a surface to reflect the light (for example, the wall is too far or the ceiling is too high) you can fix this problem by setting the angle of the flash lamp in variety of tilt (45, 60, 75 degrees) so most of the light from the lamp will not fall onto the object. This will also help the object from fierce dazzle. Read the rest of this entry »

Fact about DSLR Shutter Count

Fact about DSLR Shutter Count - Nikon Shutter Unit

Questions concerning Shutter Counts often arise in forum conversations or discussions among beginner photographers. DSLRs, which eliminate the need for film rolls, are often deemed limitless in its usage. Photograph at will, examine results, and if not satisfactory, a simple push of the delete.
Without even a thought, the user may have photographed thousands of times in mere moments. This may be okay if the user is still at the initial learning stage, but should not be done continuously. This is because the DSLR has a shutter count limit that will have an impact on the expiration of the DSLR unit.
As stated in the title, the DSLR camera’s shutter is still the same as that on analog SLR cameras. Though controlled electronically, the DSLR’s still has a mechanical shutter that opens and closes with each photograph taken.

This shutter movement is what causes the distinctive shutter sound a DSLR camera emits when photographing. Many do not know that if used continuously, it will sooner or later reach its expiration date of usability (jammed or malfunctions). Users commonly get trigger-happy when they first purchase a DSLR camera and are then surprised when they discover that their shutter count has a limit. They may then regret the useless photographs they’ve squandered in the past. Read the rest of this entry »
