Greater Pictures With a Stage and Press Camera
I have experienced this conversation with others before. As I mostly use my SLR, I don't think too much about the time delay. But on a recently available holiday with my family in Melbourne, I used Teddy's point and click the whole time, and suddenly realized what the issue was. I believed I would write a quick post about WHY your point and click is so slow.
Most individuals who have a concise digicam had a concise film camera. Now, film cameras have their lenses set at 35mm. Which means the lens was fixed. (The zoom film compacts had the same time frame delay that digi cameras have). Which means a collection area was in focus, and the areas were not. Usually, of a metre and beyond was in focus, and anything closer was not. As a result, when you took a photograph, the camera did not need to concentrate, since the focus area was set. If you main subject was 30cm or 10 metres from the lens, it didn't matter. The same area was in focus regardless.
Digital compact cameras do not work in this way. They are much smarter. They'll find a face or the main feature in a photograph, and set the focus accordingly. All this takes some time, which is why the camera includes a delay. You have probably seen the little rectangles appear on the viewer, the beep, and then your flash and the camera takes the photo. That'beep'is the compact camera letting you know it is focused.
"Big woop" you say. "So my camera is slow. I'm not going back again to film." Well no. BUT I might help you obtain over that delay, and work with it, not against it. The digi cameras operate on a similar system that SLRs work on. This is what you do:
Line up your subject. SLOWLY depress the button to about 50 % way. The camera will then focus and'beep '. Then, press the button THE REST OF THE WAY. Observe quick that is? Almost instant. The delay isn't slow technology, or operator error- it is the camera choosing the focus.
The simplest way to understand about that is to practice. It requires some getting used to. But digi cameras cost just time, so get out and enjoy making use of your point and compactclick!
Most people would think that taking good pictures can be easily done by using SLR digital cameras. Although all SLR digital camera models have higher resolution than point-and-click cameras, that doesn't mean that you can't capture stunning images together with your compact digital camera. In fact, current point-and-click cameras offer enough resolution to produce good quality pictures. It is supposed for amateur photographers who has limited familiarity with photography or doesn't have photography basics at all.
Although most compact digital camera models don't have RAW mode - you are able to either use black and white or sepia mode to produce black and white pictures. If you're using either among the shooting modes, you have to ensure that the contrast generally create must be properly adjusted so the subject look more inviting during the photo shoot.
Additionally, you have to use the right lighting to be able to create interesting black and white images. Besides that, you need to use low ISO setting to increase the "noise" in your pictures.
