The process of choosing a digital camera should not be taken lightly. There are a lot of different factors that go into choosing a camera that will fit your personal needs. It is important that you do your research by looking at camera reviews, and that you search for local and online deals or specials before buying anything.

These will be quite personal and opinions will vary greatly from person to person. So “hands on” is the only way. Go to your local camera store and pick one up, shoot a few shots, delve into the menu operations and get a good feel for how the camera operates.

Something I became aware of, when I was looking at camera forums, was the ability to reset the camera to the manufacturer’s defaults by pressing only 2 buttons together. Many of you will be aware that every camera has this capability, but it was new to me. On the back of the camera are the information and menu buttons, both of which have green dots on them. Pressing these at the same time resets the camera. So it doesn’t matter what changes you have made to the camera, you can reset it with ease. This is particularly useful if you are getting spurious results when shooting a scene and don’t know what’s wrong because you have fiddled about with the camera too much.

Camera jib cranes come in a variety of heights ranging mostly from 12-35 feet. Most of these cranes are meant for HDV or DV camera that has a weight of around 16 lbs. The crane’s head pan tilts the camera smoothly and accurately. Precise joystick control is possible.

What is the shutter? The easiest way to describe the shutter is to think of it as your eyes. Imagine that your closed eye is the camera’s sensor. Now if you wanted to let a lot of light in to your eye (the camera’s sensor) you would open your eyes for 5 seconds, for example, and this would let enough light in to your eyes to expose your image. If however you wanted less light you would open them for only 1 second. Your camera’s shutter works in a similar way. Your camera’s shutter speed (how long your eyes are open for) is measured in fractions of a second. If you’re trying to take a photo in low light conditions you’ll need to decrease the shutter speed (open your eyes for longer) which means that it will stay open as long as possible to properly expose your shot.

The Sony-TX5 digital best 360 camera has an ideal price for those who are not willing to shell out tons of cash for a nice digital camera. Compared to many other waterproof digital cameras this one is very stylish coming in a variety of different colors. Although my husband wanted the silver, I told him to buy his own because I wanted the pink!

The Nikon S8100 is the only camera of this segment to shoot in what is called “Full HD” which means 1080p quality HD video. With 12 megapixels and a very powerful 10X zoom this is Nikon’s top performance Family Camera.

As you can see, there are a few considerations to make when shopping for camera bags and cases. Not all bags are created equal, so you want to be sure you get the right one for you. Overall, make sure that you purchase something that will hold all of the items you need with you for your photography sessions.
