Picture Clarity With Digital Cameras
By: Date: December 28, 2019 Categories: Camera
  1. Compact Digital Cameras – These are a range of small and easily portable cameras in various colors and sleek designs that also incorporate some of the basic features of analogue cameras. These have retractable zoom lenses fitted even though the range of the same is less. There are certain features that are not available in compact analogue cameras owing to the lack of size capacity.
  2. Bridge analogue Cameras – This is a high end range of digital cameras that closely resemble the DSLR cameras. Despite the presence of some of the advanced features this is also restricted by a small zoom range of a fixed lens and a small sensor.
  3. DSLR Cameras(Digital Single Lens Reflex Cameras) – The analogue SLR cameras are unique in the world of photography as they use a mechanical mirror system and pentaprism that directs light

Sensor Gel Stick
By: Date: December 23, 2019 Categories: Camera

First of all, you should get the sensor exposed. Once the whole sensor becomes visible, you should clean the lens with the gel stick. Then you should clean the dust off the gel using the adhesive paper that comes with the gel stick. Remember: don’t make a rush when cleaning the camera. You don’t want to drop the camera accidentally.

You can use the gel several times repeating the process over and over again. Once you are done, you should turn the camera off, install the lens and set the aperture to f/32. Now, take a photo of a white wall or a white piece of paper. If the picture is free of any spots, the lens is clean.

Usually, sensor gel sticks should not be used in a room with a temperature lower than 40F. The ideal temperature is …

Nikon D3400 Autofocus
By: Date: December 21, 2019 Categories: Camera Tags:

There are a couple of occasions when you might want to use manual. If, for example, you are shooting video and you have somebody who is fairly static, then I would recommend that you first of all use autofocus to ensure that the subject is sharp, and then switch it over to manual. That is just to prevent the possibility of, when the subject moves in or out of the frame or in and out of focus, it stops the camera trying to track. The other time might be if I am shooting landscapes. Now, again, I might well use the cameras autofocus system in order to make sure that I have everything in focus and then switch it off. That is really just to ensure that whilst I am either setting up or composing or while I am actually …

Digital vs Film Cameras
By: Date: December 18, 2019 Categories: Camera

At their most basic level, Cameras, both the Single Lens Reflex Camera and Digital Camera simply involve using a curved piece of glass or plastic (lens) to conduct a beam of light bouncing off an object, and to redirect this light in such a way that a real image is formed-an image that looks exactly like the object in front of the lens. The only difference between manual or conventional film cameras and digital cameras lies in how these basic processes are accomplished.

In film cameras, after the lens has formed an image of the object, the image is then focused on and recorded by a chemically-coated piece of plastic, the film. Then the film is chemically processed, after which the image is printed onto a photographic paper, and then we have pictures that can then be stored in our …

Old School Flash
By: Date: December 11, 2019 Categories: Camera Tags:

The main problem with film flash photography is that the lighting effect cannot be seen until a print has been made. Additionally, the position in which the flashgun is mounted to the camera is less than ideal for some types of photography, portraiture for example, since it produces a very flat light, and casts disagreeable shadows. Good results therefore require the photographer to understand how they can manipulate this set-up, and knowledge stems from careful experimentation and experience.

There are two ingredients to successful film flash photography. The first is correct exposure. Every flashgun has a “guide number” for every speed of film (although the number for 100 ASA/ISO is most frequently used), and that number is based on the flash firing at the subject directly. The higher the guide number, the more powerful the flashgun is, although some manufacture’s …

Benefits Compact Digital Camera
By: Date: December 8, 2019 Categories: Camera

Lower cost

Compared to film photographs where film processing fee is required and film prices have risen recently as supply diminishes, users only have to spend minimal ongoing costs on compact cameras since images can be stored in computer devices without printing. If you have a few photos you really like, you can print them out yourselves or get them professionally printed at photography store without wasting money on printing the unwanted images.

Many digital cameras are highly affordable to those who want to shoot good quality images, for around $150 you can get a pretty respectable camera without sacrificing image quality and features.

Transferring photos

If you want to preserve and share some old film photos on the Internet, you need to scan and convert them into digital format first. Nowadays with a USB cable, users can connect camera …

Selecting Digital Scouting Camera
By: Date: December 1, 2019 Categories: Camera


Digital scouting cameras which include an external battery jack are excellent choices. A typical digital camera battery used in a hunting territory may last ten days or less. A large external rechargeable battery can function for five or six months in a hunting area. They save money over the long term and save hunters from spending the time to continually access the deer camera. Less trips also makes it less likely a hunter will scare away the deer with human scent.

Trigger Time

This is basically a measurement of the amount of time that elapses from the detection of motion by the camera until the picture is taken. Some deer cameras react immediately while other can take five seconds. If the camera is taking images at a food plot then a quick trigger time is not necessary.

History Behind Cameras
By: Date: November 27, 2019 Categories: Camera

It is understood that Ibn al-Haytham, the man who invented the camera was certainly gifted. Another gifted man by the name Daniello Barbaro adjusted the camera obscura. He added a lens as well as a changeable opening with the intention of sharpening the cameras. All this time the camera was not portable. It is because it was constructed from heavy material. It could not be fitted into a bag or the pocket, which is possible with most modern cameras. It was not until the 1660s that the first moveable camera was invented.

So who invented the camera that one might carry from place to place? The reply, two folks by the names Robert Boyle and Robert Hooke. They had been English scientists. They in all probability simply got pissed off with being unable to take their camera along to seize …

Choosing a Digital Point and Shoot Camera
By: Date: November 24, 2019 Categories: Camera

It happens all the time – I see it almost every day. People come and see me with faulty point and shoot digital cameras, which have self induced faults. The good news is, that most of these expensive problems could have been avoided, when you had chosen the right camera type, which fits your lifestyle, and had taken the right precautions of course. The bad news is, these faults are not covered under warranty and are often uneconomical to repair!

What is a self induced fault? Sand -, liquid- and shock damage

  • Sand damage can easily happen at the beach without realising it straight away. A couple of sand grains in the right spot can malfunction an extendable lens mechanism.
  • The most common liquid damaged cameras we have seen are affected by rainwater, beach and swimming pool and believe it
