Move up to Manual

Moving from Auto to Manual Control of your Camera or graduating from a Compact Camera to a DSLR Camera can be daunting and so many are so troubled that they never to progress beyond the Camera’s inbuilt Program Settings. On the new DSLR Cameras whether they be Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Samsung, Sony there are so many presets including the latest Creative settings you can probably get away with out ever needing to “go manual” but don’t rely on it. There will be occasions when you wish you had understood the Manual Controls as that dream shot didn’t turn out so great…. that Prize, that  Cover Shot was so within your grasp. You will at some stage need to compensate for something out of the ordinary, so you really should experiment with the Manual, the Aperture and Shutter Speed Priority settings. Just play around with the settings and notice the different effects and when you get familiar with them we guarantee you will feel like a real photographer and your photographs that little bit special….there’s a good feeling about taking a photo having used your own input and judgement.

To assist those that would like to understand some of the basic settings used in Manual – Aperture Priority, Speed Priority, ISO, Exposure Compensation, etc. we have put together a Cheat Sheet. The image below is condensed for this page but if you would like to download a large version, perhaps to laminate and keep handy, do feel free to grab one – simply click on the image then save the jpeg. All we would ask is that you respect our copyright – no rebranding”. We should add that the information is to help you understand the relative effect of, for example, a small aperture compared to a large one, rather than definitive figures.

Which SD Card for your Camera?

April 9, 2015 Posted by whichcanoncamera

Choosing Memory Cards for your Digital Camera

Camera Memory used to be exclusively the Compact Flash Card but technological advances first saw cards shrinking to the size of the SD card (Secure Digital) and then advances in mobile phones brought us the Micro SD card. (Post updated May 2016) One would used to think smaller meant less capacity but in the case of SD Cards the opposite has happened with the latest now boasting a staggering 512 gigabits of memory plus it’s waterproof, dustproof, X-ray proof and lots more – Sandisk Extreme Pro 512 gb .  With the relatively rapid advances in capacities and transfer speeds has come confusion as there are now an array of cards available.  So which memory card do you need for you camera?  No point in spending too much and little point in buying something that is not “fit for purpose”.

What SD card should I buy for my camera?
