1. What is a light meter and how does it work

A light meter is an invaluable tool for photographers. It measures the intensity of light in either foot candles or lux. The numbers are then converted to a scale that ranges from 0 to 18. This scale is measured by EV’s, which are calculated by multiplying the f/stop with the ISO speed setting. EV’s are used to calculate the shutter speed and aperture combination that will result in a certain level of brightness on film, video, or digital camera sensors.

2. How to use your camera’s light meter

The light meter in the camera is calibrated to take measurements of the brightness of the light. You can use this information to determine how much exposure to give one photograph, or you can stand on a bright, overcast day and read off your settings so that you know what ISO, aperture, and shutter speed to use for any given lighting situation.

3. Why you should always shoot in manual mode

The benefit of shooting in manual mode is that you have more control over what your camera is doing. Shooting in a different mode means that the automatic settings of your … Read the rest

What Memory Cards Are Available?

CompactFlash

CompactFlash cards are among the oldest commercially-available memory cards. They were developed in the 1990s by IBM and SanDisk, and are used mainly in digital still cameras. The card is electrically erasable but not physically. They’re bulky, take up a lot of space, and expensive to produce; they’re rarely seen outside Japan these days.

SD Card

The SD card is a flash-based storage device for storing digital data including audio, video, photos, and text files. It was created in 1999 by Panasonic Corporation and SanDisk as an upgrade to the MMC (MultiMediaCard). The SD card is much smaller than the MMC card and has a similar capacity to CompactFlash cards. SD cards are used in many devices such as digital cameras, smartphones, tablets, and video game consoles.

Secure Digital High Capacity

A SDHC card was designed for the newest cameras and camcorders that take higher capacity memory cards. It is not backwards compatible with older devices.

Secure Digital High Capacity cards provide a nice performance boost in certain devices, including newer camcorders and cameras. SDHC is not backwards-compatible with older devices.

35mm or 50mm Lens: Which Should I Choose?

There are many photographers who have to choose between a 35mm or 50mm prime lens. Which one is best for you? Here are some things to consider when choosing which lens will work best for your style of photography.

 35mm-vs-50mm

Should I Choose the 35mm Lens?

The main difference between these two lenses is field of view, or how much of what you see in front of you the lens captures. The 50mm has a narrower angle, so it captures more than the wider angle (35) does. This makes sense if you’re photographing people and want them all in frame without having to step back too far from them whereas if you were photographing something like landscape shots where distance doesn’t make as big a difference

What is a Prime Lens?

A prime lens is a type of lens that doesn’t zoom. There are lenses that are considered “bad” optics, but they are still called primes because they are not zooming or moving through any other way to capture subject matter.

What is a Zoom Lens?

A zoom lens or “variable focal length” lens means that you can change the way your subject appears in the frame. Think of it like taking two lenses and zooming them closer to what you want, so instead of having to switch out prime lenses for different shots all the time, just adjust one ring on this type of lens and get multiple looks from one piece of equipment.

Do I Need Both Lenses?

It’s not necessary but many photographers do have both types of lenses because they offer such different benefits depending on what kind of photography style they are shooting. If landscape work is more up your alley then probably best suited with a 50mm while if people are who you’re photographing, a … Read the rest
