Reversing rings are simply adapters featuring a real lens mount on one side plus male filter threads on the reverse side.
If you happen to have some sort of telephoto lens plus a 50mm lens in your camera bag you just might want to try this idea. Keep in mind that using setup similar to the one I have described above, with the 70-300 set at full zoom which will give you a magnification of 6:1, 6 times it's actual size (300mm with the zoom divided by 50mm with the prime lens). There are lots of free tutorials, blogs and YouTube videos to help develop your skills and knowledge. Do you actually read instruction manuals when you get something new or do you just put them back in the box never to see the light of day again? Friends make great models to practice on, and will usually be flattered when you ask them if you can take a few photos of them. Place an apple on a table top or chair in front of a window, and shoot it from every angle. Yes it can be frustrating when something doesn’t quite go as planned but mistakes help you learn. Becoming a master of the camera gear you currently own will give you an advantage for the really cool stuff you’ll purchase later. Daniela Beddall from Ferri Photography is a Northamptonshire photographer who specialises in working with natural light. Do get off of AUTO, but start with Aperture Priority and use it exclusively for a couple of weeks. Using those two settings first keeps the new user from being overwhelmed with choices and helps learn what happens with both settings and when to use them. So you’re the guy who keeps telling newbies to use manual as soon as they get the camera out of the box!!!
Now a days we are buying cameras with really good metering and powerful computers in them… PUT THEM TO WORK!
The camera as a whole in auto has one goal, to get a good properly exposed in focus, with proper color balance, quickly! I found Nikon D3200 as the best option for 1st purchase..it takes crisp shots at a considerably large range and is also damn easy on the pockets!
I agree – setting yourself (or being set) challanges or assignments is a great way to get you out there shooting. There are many friendly people there who meet to discuss all aspects of photography, and help each other with critiques and advice. Photography is all about capturing light so the number one thing is to learn how to capture light with the gear you have.
I believe people should enjoy TAKING photographs then when they enjoy and learn more they would start MAKING photographs with more control (using manual mode). I am a newbie, and you are right about getting those training wheels off as soon as possible! Reading this article has already helped me and now i will apply it in my photography and i am very sure it will be of great help to me.
Why are people buying a Mark III or 6D if they don’t even know the basics of exposure? Next they’re going to tell me I’m not a real retoucher because I use Photoshop!!!
The only people who shoot everything in manual mode are students working under mean, old frustrated photo teachers who force them to shoot in Manual so the kids can learn how tough things were back in the 1950s and before.
I only pull it off AUTO if something isn’t setting itself correctly in the AUTO modes. The key is that by taking a lot of time to program all the Auto everythings to set the camera as I would have set it myself, I can shoot much faster.
I often will change something from Auto, and the important point is knowing what to change when. If I want a lighter or darker photo, I use the exposure compensation button — while in Pro mode. Maybe I confuse people by listing my exposure times and apertures for photos, but I only do that because you asked.
Thank you for a good article to read I am a beginner and have been out trying my hand a manual mode a little and if I am having a hard time getting the picture that I am looking for I will go to program mode and see what it sets my camera at then I go into manual again and tweak it a little to see what the photo looks like. With the increase in capability of smartphone cameras, the argument for purchasing a point and shoot camera is quickly becoming moot. Camera companies are already struggling as competition increases year after year and the market shifts.
I have been without a point and shoot camera since I acquired my iPhone 4s this last Spring. What can the camera manufacturers do to entice people like me back to Point and Shoot cameras? Would you buy a point and shoot camera this year or would you prefer to switch to a smartphone?
I think there are more point-and-shoot camera owners than DSLR camera owners, but there is little information that can help P&S camera owners take better photos. If they increase internal memory of the P&S Camera to atleast 2 GB they may survive in the competition with smart phones. Compared with smartphones, point-and-shoot cameras have some optical zoom, perform a bit better at low light, and may offer some limited creative mode.
Smartphones are more compact and always in your pocket, and with enough sunlight they can make very good photos.
I own two Canon DSLR cameras and I find it difficult to lug one around on a daily basis wherever I go. I have recently purchased a nice canon 220 which only cost ?99 and has 14x zoom, plenty of pixels, sensitive for low light and the menu system is the same as my 7D.
Wife lost my Nikon P7100 which I haven't replaced as I started exploring my Samsung Note camera.
As a lot of people who own SLRs rarely take it out of Auto or P mode, I would suggest that the humble Point & Shoot would deliver just as good images for these novices.
The things that are less important to me are tilt screens, gps, super long zoom, sharing apps. I have my sister coming from USA and all I had to do to get my desired P&S (Canon S100) was to send her an e-mail and give her the money later. But I resisted because I just get my new Samsung Galaxy S2 with a better camera than my previous phone. I want a camera thats cheap has a full frame sensor, low noise,interchangable lenses,shoots RAW and fits in my pocket. While I agree the market for P&S cameras is definitely shrinking, I'm not sure it will disappear completely. I also have to admit that I'm not big on all the social networking sites, so taking pictures is something I really do for me and my family, not the rest of the world. Bonus points if it has slick retro styling & solid build quality like the new Fuji compacts, built-in HDR, excellent macro mode, and a hybrid viewfinder. Put all of that into a body with a reasonably specced sensor, and I'd give serious consideration to dropping $1K on it.
I have a Nikon P7100 that I use when I don't want to lug around my DSLR because of the weight. I looked at some of the upper end p&s cameras and the prices were so high (Canon S95, Sony rx100, that I started throwing my old Nikon D5000 in my bag with a lightweight zoom (18-200) and haven't looked back. I take my Canon S100 on small outings where a larger camera is too much, and any social gathering that is more than "Hey, wanna see a movie?" Phone camera's flaws are glaring at those evening social gatherings when the light is low, and all pictures become blurry, grainy, and unremarkable by comparison. I'll jump at an upgrade that provides easy tethering to a smartphone (which is always on me even when I have the S100).
Major bonus points if the software also has a post shot RAW->JPEG processing incase I was in RAW only mode.


I prefer a point and shoot in spite of its bulkiness because I get the depth of field and macro capabilities I need. I too have wondered about the relevance of the simple Point & Shoot camera in the current era. The D3200 is perfect camera for entry level photographers, the 24.2 Megapixel High Resolution APS-C is developed by Nikon itself, the expeed 3 processor improves the overall speed and response time of the camera.
We have 5 categories of lenses, each category have one or more lenses in it, Nikon D3200 support or compatible with Only AF-S lenses, AF lenses would require manual focusing.
Nikon 18-200mm lens sharpness is excellent at tele and wide end, Lens also features second generation VRII image stabilization. The Good: Covers a wide range, sharp at wide end and tele end, at 18mm image quality at corner is bit soft, VRII image stabilization system. Nikon 55-200mm AF-S DX VR Zoom IF-ED is a affordable zoom lens from Nikon, images are sharp and wide and tele-end, the lens features Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization system, New compact rod-type Silent Wave Motor (SW) for silent and fast auto focusing, 7-blade rounded diaphragm provides more natural out-of-focus highlights and An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration. Nikon 55-300mm lens is and excellent zoom lens available at $399, the lens captures sharp images at tele-end and wide-end, the 55-300mm lens comes with VRII image stabilization, 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements to minimize to chromatic aberrations, HRI (High Refractive Index) Lens Element, Tripod Detection Mode to stop optical IS when Tripod is used, Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast, accurate and quiet autofocus and 7-blade rounded diaphragm provides more natural out-of-focus blurred background. Nikon DX format 35mm F1.8 Lens is made for DX format camera, you get razor sharp images and excellent background blur aka Bokeh with this lens, the lens comes with fast and accurate Nikon SWM (silent wave motor), one Aspherical lens element to minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC), and at last the lens is affordable and light-weight, Highly recommended for your Nikon D3100 DSLR.
The 10-24mm lens offers Close focusing to 0.8 feet and Internal Focus (IF) with Nikon SWM (Silent Wave Motor) for fast and pin-point focusing. Hi there, I want to subscribe for this website to take hottest updates, so where can i do it please help out. Both lens will create excellent bokeh (background blur), but the 35mm will cove more objects in the frame and 50mm will cover a limited frame range, and also keep in mind that 50mm lens is a FX format lens so it will act as a (50 X 1.5) 75mm lens. Looking for the best lens to take photos of my jewelry, primarily for my etsy (online) shop and for photos for juried shows. I have Nikon 3200, went to camera shop and found out that the 10-24 wide angle lens from Nikon only goes to! The most used lenses on Nikon D5500 is portrait prime lenses, these lenses are cheap but has good image quality. If you don’t need too many lenses with your Nikon D5500, you can get a zoom lens instead of prime lenses, there are also a lot of good zoom lenses for Nikon D5500.

If you are looking for some super telephoto lenses for 7D, below are several best lenses for you to choose.
If you are looking for some super telephoto prime lenses, below are best lenses for you to choose. You will certainly get some lovely photos shooting on auto, but it will limit you from taking your images to the next level. Use what’s already out there and easily accessible before buying expensive books and enrolling in expensive courses. All my early portrait images are of friends; even the most reluctant ones were bribed with chocolate or a bottle of wine to model for me! Look at the way light falls on it and what happens when you move it closer or further away from the light. The more you learn, the fewer mistakes you’ll make, and the better your photography skills will become. I was second shooting for a friend; she always liked to work with a back up photographer for weddings.
But now I am beginning to think that I should not be dogmatic in that approach and am not entirely sure the mantra to get off manual is always true. Using and understanding 1 feature BEFORE moving to another feature is how most people learn. If you are serious about photography, then manual is the way to go – learning from the off is better. This way the camera sets all the easy stuff itself so I can concentrate on finding the picture. It’s much faster than changing to aperture or shutter-priority mode, and a zillion times faster than manual.
9 times out of 10 the camera was in Pro mode and picked that particular combination by itself while I was busy looking for the picture. You hear the door of the hotel room open, in walks her father, proud as punch the emotion is heavy on his face, he starts to well up and is going to cry. Why cause you’re in Manual and the father is by the door well away from the window, the light is like 4 stops difference. This year’s Black Friday sales figures tell the tale, with a reported 36% drop in unit sales compared to 2011, even when the price of devices stayed essentially the same (moving from an average of $101 in 2011 to $106 in 2012). Phones, after all, are more easily updated via firmware (apps) and have the advantage of almost always being in a pocket when a photo needs to be taken. I know this is difficult without putting a cell phone in the camera, but maybe that is the way to go. They have this going for them as smartphones seem to be growing with a desire for bigger screens.
This needs to be highlighted and retained and is a reason I would use one in dark settings, instead of a smartphone.
His latest wide (and tall!) work includes images from Nepal, Bhutan, Italy, France and Peru. I have owned two cheap point-and-shoots and one superzoom, bridge camera, which I’m using right now. I have owned two cheap point-and-shoots and one superzoom, bridge camera, which I'm using right now. I was looking forward to buy my first P&S camera but now I am in a dilemma to go ahead. When they realise that the kit lens isn't up to the job either optically or in range terms back they go for a new ?300-?800 lens, and so it goes on.
The point and shoot camera still has its place in the world of photography; even for more "advanced" users. It is a few years old and I would replace it with a better P&S as long as it is pocketable. Sadly they dont yet exist so I have to cover my requirements with a DSLR and a Canon compact. However, I'm still in the market for a decent P&S with wide angle and that won't break the bank.
There will always be people too cheap to pay for the costs associated with having a smart phone and will opt to purchase both a cheap phone and a cheap camera.
Today's P&S cameras like the Canon SX260HS is a great camera with a lot of options and manual settings.
By profession I am an airline pilot and travel extensively, photography is my hobby and second profession. Even more bonus points (though possibly making it too "me"-specific) if it has a mechanical zoom, and a rangefinder-manual-focus option. I bought it so that I wouldnt have to carry my 5Dmk2s around and the glass with it(all primes). For "real" photography I prefer the DSLR, I use the p&s mostly on my motorcycle since it packs tightly. I use my phone cams (I have two phones with a cam and neither gives me what I need but they work for simple images) only when I must.
The sharpness is excellent at wide and tele-end and comes with 1 ED and 1 aspherical lens element, the lens features creamy bokeh background, Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization to helps you to capture sharp images under low-light condition. Recommend for anyone who is beginner in photography and interested in first prime lenses for portrait and low light shooting.
If you want to buy a good color laser printer, then ask your supplier a print of each of these images in all units and compare them with each other.


7D is one of the best DSLR from Canon, and it is scheduled to be replaced by 7D Mark II in late 2013 to early 2014.
They are effectively cheap lenses that offer a decent focal length, but generally the compromises made in achieving the large focal range mean image quality suffers. Most lenses are engineered to deliver optimum results when the lens-to-sensor distance is less than your lens-to-the-subject distance, so by using an ordinary length lens for macro shooting, it could produce better results when it's reversed. All that's needed is a reversing ring (coupler), and maybe a filter step up ring, plus a piece of folded paper or cardboard.
If your lens has no aperture dial This is where you wedge the aperture slide open using the folded paper or cardboard. One afternoon over coffee, she asked if I had any advice to help her get started with her new camera.
Some of the best advice I received when I was starting out on my photography journey, was to read my camera instruction manual cover to cover, and when I’d finished, to go back and read it all again! Draw a face on it using a marker pen, and turn it from left to right to see how the light behaves. Her usual second shooter was on holiday and as a result she asked if I’d like to do it. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter on Pinterest or drop her line – she’d love to hear from you! Don’t throw away the help of metering too early, before you really understand what you are doing! However, I think it’s important to know how your camera works, how to control it and how to make adjustments confidently and quickly. Better to start hard, and makes things easier in the long run, than simply stick with AUTO and get confused down the line. 9 is the best advice, Don’t upgrade your gear before you are comfortable with what you have.
I am out of Auto mode but still find myself in those other modes, such as, portrait, landscape and so on.
For me I want a point and shoot camera that has a high build quality, good optical viewfinder, hot shoe, built in flash, RAW capability, good and easily accessible manual control, and a fast lens (at least f2.0). I take this on all my trips instead of the DSLR as its small and compact and carries a punch.
Of course it was about $700 more than the S95 (with the additional lens and EF adapter), so price is still a consideration. It isn't a brilliant camera, however, unlike my DSLR it is now always with me, I have a smart phone however, the camera at the moment is nowhere near the same quality.
I'm looking for a mid-level dSLR to replace my aging PAS (Point and Shoot) because I'm almost at it's image odometer limit. The Nikon 18-200mm comes with Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements, Three aspherical lens elements to correct chromatic aberrations and lens aberration, Zoom lock switch, Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) to reduced flare.
I do a lot of food photography and looking for that blurring background look when shooting people or food. I like to used notepad paper folded over just enough to wedge the aperture open with a snug fit. One more important thing to keep in mind is that by using less zoom , you'll have more vignetting. Get yourself a UV filter to protect the front of your lens, and leave the lens cap off so you’re ready to go whenever an opportunity presents itself. Once you have exhausted all the options, look at your images and compare them to see what worked well, and what didn’t work so well. We can easily upload thousands of images to our computer, or delete them all in one go with the press of a single button. While shooting in Auto, take a gander of your camera’s auto settings and make a note of them.
I am working and learning as fast as I can to go full Manual mode because I want this to be more than just a hobby for me.
I have seen DSLR camera photos that are bad, and I have seen nice pictures from cheap compacts. The user manual is built in and I can send my photos to my home computer via the built-in WIFI.
Compared with the other things I carry around with me the Canons nothing extra to worry about. Of course, this will be short lived as mirrorless DSLR's become more mature and less expensive. Also, I wouldn't happily give out my phone to others to take photos, however my P&S I don't mind someone using to take a photo. Observe the color results, contrast, resolution of the printer and the detail texture of the colors. Observe os resultados de cor, contraste, resoluçao da impressora e os pormenores de textura das cores. Having a zoom lens is not entirely necessary although focusing in on your intended subject becomes much easier than using two prime lenses.
Use whatever works the best for you however it's difficult to damage a lens when using this approach. Getting off Auto and shooting in Manual mode will open up a world of possibilities such as shooting in low lighting conditions or bright sunshine, shooting fast moving objects, creating a soft blurry background, the list is endless. I did my homework prior to the big day and carried out a Reiki of the church and planned what lens and camera settings I’d be using.
This forces you to USE you camera because you have a goal to achieve.Sure I thought I took a lot of photos when I got my camera, but I really didn`t.
So the P7100 is good if I'm just going somewhere that I want to take snapshots (like a party with friends, etc.). Since I'm sharing it to begin with, I do some post processing as well so it's as sharp and beautiful as possible. If you use diferent brand cartridges or toners then you should notice the difference and discover what are the best that suit your needs. The key is to spend time looking at your images and thinking about what you could have done differently to make them better.
After the ceremony, I followed the bride and groom from the inside of the church to the bright sunshine outside. I learned more about my camera in two classes than I did in the 6 months prior of having it. It wasn’t until about the 10th frame that I looked at the back of my camera and saw that all of my images were over exposed! So, I intend to click away, review what I have done, make a mental note, adjust, and clck away some more. It was too high and there was nothing I could do with those images, they were beyond repair. I know the basics of Lightroom,enrolled in a photography program and my pictures have improved in less than than three months. Luckily I was only second shooting and the main photographer had lots of her own perfectly exposed photos. It was still a steep learning curve for me though and I can assure you that I’ve never made that mistake again.
