Long before you learn photography, the most important thing is that you have to have a camera – any kind. For those of you who are looking for – looking for information before deciding to purchase a digital camera, this article will explain the types of cameras available on the market and what are the differences.
Camera Pocket (Pocket)
Pocket camera is a type of camera the majority (almost 90%) which is in the hands of consumers. As the name implies, this camera is small and really get into your shirt pocket.
Pocket cameras can usually produce a good, sometimes outstanding. Pocket camera is also capable of recording video, it features a very useful and preferred by consumers. However, please note the words in bold above. Usually good and sometimes outstanding photography is the reason why a true fan (and a pro photographer) looking pocket camera eye – merely as a stepping stone or as a back up.
There are several factors that make pocket cameras are limited:
Shutter lag, defined as the time lag between when you pressed the shutter button and the camera started recording. Is the biggest reason why compact cameras are very limited. The time lag is probably only half a second, but the second half is going to happen-important cool-funny-spectacular that it did not record a photo.
Lousy in low light, the camera has a sensor pocket (small chip rectangular light sensitive that replaces the function of the film) is very small. In general, the smaller the sensor of a camera getting bad quality photograph. Sensors which means only a small bit of light recorded, color quality mediocre and weak when faced with dim conditions. What are the consequences? first is prone to blur (not sharp) and second images tend to have a lot of noise (spots around the area of the photo).
Zoom is limited, it has a pocket camera then you are bound to live off with congenital lens from nature. We can not change the lens as needed. Pocket camera from the factory set to have a lens that can be used for public needs and can make 3 to 4 times magnification. But do not expect you can use it to photograph your child face playing shooting drama at school or face being sing Madona in a concert.
If a lot of bad, why compact cameras sold on the market? is not there any advantages? There, the following:
Small is beautiful, with its small size it is easy to take wherever we go so that more and more things that we can capture
Prices are affordable, compact cameras are the most friendly type of camera with a wallet so you will be loved wife / husband as clever frugality
More people do not want to look like a photo journalist. The bigger your bring camera, the more you look like a photojournalist. And rest assured of famous people kind of David Beckham, the President or Obama never seemed like a photojournalist (kidding …).
Super zoom cameras have a physical size larger than a pocket camera, and its name has an optical zoom capability as far as 15 times or even 20 times. Why is there a camera? Because so many important events happening in the distance; on stage, in the pulpit, at the wedding, on the sports field.
Super zoom cameras have advantages in addition to its ability to see from a distance, also has another major advantage compared to compact cameras: small peephole that fit your eye (eyepiece viewfinder). Peephole is especially useful if you are photographing center hot during the day (only pocket camera has an LCD screen behind which are completely useless if you are in a brightly lit area). One again, super zoom cameras also usually have an LCD screen that can be bent – bend that helps you shoot from unusual angles.
The drawback? technically this camera still has a relatively small sensor that ability in low light conditions is still limited. For outdoor shooting still okay results, but once you have brought into the room you will start to get exhausted and a nice sharp photos.
In size, super zoom camera is also quite responsible. It will never fit in the bag so we had to take him in the shoulder.
Maybe you’ve been quite satisfied with the quality of photos from a tiny pocket camera. Then begin to love the photograph in magazines that looked wah .. super sharp photo, the color is completely beautiful, face portrait with a blurred background, waterfall with a seemingly very soft like cotton or photograph birds being shot … photo – picture this quality is average – average results from SLR cameras SLR. So does it? SLR stands for single lens reflex, a term that is fairly complex to explain. But the principle is the type of camera images of objects which we peered through the lens (photography jargon: through the lens). Big black camera is certainly not going to fit in Your Pocket and the price is quite expensive.
But in terms of quality, this camera producing pictures in magazines or ads cool giant on the road. Once turned on you can simply take a picture, there is no shutter lag, capable of recording 3 photos in 1 second, satisfying manual controls for virtually all shooting parameters, and taking thousands of pictures can be used without running out of battery.
The camera is what makes many people infatuated with the world of photography, has a distinctive sound when you pressed the shutter (for super zoom compact cameras and is usually accompanied by the sound fake), and feels sturdy and resilient when held.
You can change the lenses as needed, from a macro lens where you can take pictures of insect eyes to super telephoto lenses so you can take pictures of acne on the face of your friends from a distance of 10 meters.
