You want to buy the mirror camera?
It is sure, the majority is acquisition will disappoint.
Motives for which it is planned:
Youth: I want as at friends, saw in advertizing, I will become the photographer, prestigiously.
Adults, naturally, want to receive better pictures in comparison with available, received from a usual digital soap tray.
to Join the photo it is laudable, the photo is equated to art on an equal basis with painting and graphics.
A now about shortcomings! Main is a weight and the sizes. Not will get into any bag and, respectively, not everywhere it can be taken. On some actions (sports, dramatized, concerts) in general with such camera will not let or will forbid to remove. It is convenient to hold in hand, of course, but in half an hour - hour of shooting the hand falls off.
Second “shortcoming“. Pictures in the automatic mode indoors turn out on quality comparable with a usual soap tray. And it horrifies! Such money is spent! We rush to read the instruction: 200 pages of absolutely unclear information. Also the conclusion is drawn: and it was necessary to me in general?!
What to do? Main option: in total - to go to courses or to find the teacher (knowing the person) who will help to understand terms and controls of the camera. It is possible to try and most, the benefit on the Internet of a shortcoming of reference books and advisers is not present. But, on my supervision, it is process for a beginner long and difficult. Without knowing and without understanding things, simple for the expert, a complex challenge.
was Still not changed the mind? Or already late? Then I will give the small hint as
all - to begin to study or at least to approach understanding of this mysterious thingummy a little - the mirror camera. by
For a start make pictures without use of flash in the mode “P“ (program). Put a castor of management in this position. If photos turn out unsharp, means greased is not enough photosensitivities and endurance very long. What is “photosensitivity“ or ISO? If you bought once, and maybe still use a film, then will understand. And who does not know - it is a number of ISO values measured in units: 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 etc. What it is necessary for? If light we put enough that ISO value 100 if is not present, gradually we add values: 200, 400, 800 … (find independently or about the help of the reference book a button of fast change of ISO). That is in the dark room we put value bigger. I ask to notice that with increase of a photosensitivity quality of the photo can fall, noise and unsharpness will appear. The digital camera is very sensitive to lighting conditions. It is more than light - quality is better.
Needed to compare the pictures received in the automatic mode with the built-in flash with photos in the mode “P“. There was a volume and uniform illumination of a scene. And in pictures in the automatic machine a dark background, sharp shadows and a flat face (foreground). Here also dealt with the first component of “exposition“. For training try to photograph a portrait or any subject in the program mode using light from a window. besides in “Ð“ the mode you can independently change
values of endurance and a diaphragm (these are the remained two expositions values) having twisted a castor of control and to adjust balance of white “WB“ according to lighting conditions, but it first is not recommended as the automatic balance of “AWB“ perfectly copes with any conditions.
Next time if article is clear and was pleasant, I will tell a simple language about the exposure meter (the device for definition of the correct exposition), an expopara (endurance and a diaphragm) and the simple modes of a priority of endurance (S - Nikon or Tv - Canon) and diaphragms (A and Av) Creative achievements!
