Digital SLR Cameras
So you got a digital camera with auto-focus and you want to know how to use it properly. The trouble is, it’s very easy to use auto-focus incorrectly. Many people don’t even realise that they’re using it wrong.
There are many things you can do to make auto-focus work better for you. Here are seven tips to get you started:
1. Set The AF Point Correctly
On most cameras, the user can select a specific AF point. The default setting usually isn’t the best choice – especially when it comes to sharpness. If you’re shooting an image that requires sharpness in certain parts of the composition, you’ll probably need to turn the sharpness setting up higher.
You also need to learn how to set the AF point when you take candid pictures of animals or people. Since the subject can come in and out of focus, try to select an AF point where it is likely to be.
Did you just get yourself a digital SLR? A digital camera with a Single Lens Reflex works like a point and shoot camera, except that the technical features must be adjusted manually. The internal components are more advanced. This means you have to take extra care of your DSLR. It requires a lot of maintenance.
Knowing how to maintain your camera and lenses can save you a lot of money in repairs, so here are some tips on taking care of a DSLR:
- Keep The DSLR Camera Out Of Humid Weather
Do you want to brush up on your photography skills? What is it that separates the pros from the amateurs? It doesn’t matter if you have the best Canon camera on the market – it won’t do you any good if you don’t know how to use it properly.
Professional photographers can make a lot of money if they’re good enough. Passion for learning combined with practice is what you need in order to become a pro.

So you’ve been taking picture after picture with your Canon camera. You’re trying to become the best photographer that you can be. Unfortunately, your pictures aren’t turning out as great as you were hoping. It doesn’t matter how many pictures you take, if you’re not using the right lens then you’ll never be a pro.
What you need is a good DSLR lens. An entry-level digital SLR kit just isn’t going to cut it. Here are seven steps for finding the perfect DSLR lens:
1. What’s Your Budget Like?
Since digital cameras are so affordable these days, it seems as if everybody wants to be a photographer. Not everybody has what it takes to be a pro, though. If you want to be a pro, you need to take great night pictures.
Here are ten tips for better night photography:
1. Choose The Appropriate ISO Setting
You need to learn how to change the ISO setting to suit the type of image you’re trying to take. For city scenes with long exposures, keep the ISO at 100 – 200. Keep your camera on a tripod. For night-time candid or action shots, bump up the ISO to ensure a fast shutter speed.
The most commonly asked question about digital cameras is “Which one should I buy?” With so many brands and models, you may feel overwhelmed.
Since this will be your first camera, you don’t have to spend a whole lot of money on it. It’s okay to get an inexpensive model for the time being. Later, if you want to turn your interest in photography into an actual career, you’ll need to invest in a quality camera.
