I don’t see anything good on that list except the sigma 18-35 but it will not work on a full frame camera at 18mm so if you plan on moving up in the future to FF this lens becomes a 20 something to 35mm.

Every few weeks, we revisit some of our reader's favorite posts from throughout the history of the site. When I first began learning photography, mastering exposure settings seemed to be one of the trickiest things to grasp. Armed with this knowledge, I could at least figure out how to interpret my test picture and adjust the camera settings accordingly a few times until I was happy with the result. This brief tutorial is for complete beginners who, like me when I first started, have no clue how to make your fancy camera take a picture that isn't either too dark or too bright.
Our recent Beginner's Guide to Exposure explained in great detail everything you need to know about exposure.
Since the number is a fraction, the smaller the denominator (the number on the bottom), the longer the exposure. Also remember that the lower the denominator is on the focal length, the shallower the depth of field. Your ISO setting will also affect the brightness of the picture in conjunction with the quality.
As you know, when you're shooting in full auto, your camera attempts to make all these judgement calls for you. The nice thing about all this is that even in manual mode, your camera is giving you hints as to what it thinks your exposure should be. This beep signifies more than the autofocus however, as much more is going on automatically behind the scenes. As you can see, all of the settings we discussed above are represented right here in the viewfinder. Theoretically, this should help you achieve a picture that is neither too bright, nor too dark.
Since you're shooting moving people, you want your shutter speed to be fast enough to have crisp photos devoid of blur where someone was moving.
You can instantly tell, even before you take a single picture, that the image is going to be too dark. The brilliant part is that you can accomplish this without even removing your eye from the viewfinder. So to fix the problem shown in the picture above, simply move the wheel left until the indicator is centered. If you're really lost on where to set all of your settings to start things off, try switching to auto mode and metering there. Sometimes you'll find yourself shooting a scene that is changing so quickly that using manual mode becomes cumbersome and annoying.
When shooting in AV, you still have to keep an eye on your shutter speed to make sure your camera isn't putting it too slow. Watch the Exposure Level Indicator in your camera's viewfinder closely and try to adjust your settings so that it lines up perfectly in the center.
Finally, if you have trouble shooting in manual, start off in auto to get a feel for the proper settings or switch to AV so the camera will automatically control only your shutter speed while you take care of the rest.
The Canon EOS Rebel T5 and Nikon D3300 are the newest entry-level DSLRs from the two largest manufacturers. As for performance, we found both cameras easy to use, and both take very good photographs. Due to the Eartha€™s rotation about its axis, it seems that the light from stars moves in circles around the celestial pole. The best place to view and photograph the night sky is in the rural countryside because cities have artificial lights which cause a phenomenon known as light pollution.
When photographing the night sky with a long exposure, exposures of 15 minutes or longer will show the rotation of the Earth. Photographing the atmospheric phenomenon of aurora borealis is a challenge for photographers.
Metering after dark can be a problem, so make sure you choose the best option for your particular situation. When taking pictures of the night sky, remember that patience is as important as is the ability to look at an imagea€™s composition critically and decide what you need to change next time to make it better. The best four Android camera phones this year have finally met in our Ultimate Camera Comparison and review. On the first image with HDR off, the Xperia Z5 showed the closest color reproduction as on the Canon with close to realistic shot, though a little greenish. Next with HDR off, Z5 is impressive here and showed smoother details and close color to the Canon 70D. With HDR off again, LG G5 edges out the 3 with a brighter shot, but the highlights on the sky are overblown. Turning on the HDR, the LG G5 really showed crisper details and deeper contrast level followed by the Xperia Z5.
Next shot with HDR, the Xperia Z5 has the closest color and white balance to the Canon 70D. On the first low light shot, the S7 produced the brightest image and surprisingly the color is as natural as to the Canon 70D.
Next night shot shows how impressive the Z5 in colors and details if compared to the quality of the DSLR. In selfie shooting, I think the S7 did far a better job the rest in dynamic range handling.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase your maximum bid amount. To get a decent exposure, my workflow usually consisted of snapping a picture, viewing the result, fiddling with the settings nearly at random, and then trying again only to repeat the cycle over and over while hoping to stumble onto a decent result. For those of you who haven't read this, I'll very briefly explain what you need to know for the purposes of this tutorial. The smaller the number associated with the denominator of the focal length, the greater the size of the hole, which means more light entering the camera and consequently a brighter picture. Without getting into the complexities of your camera's electronic sensor, suffice to say that the higher the ISO, the brighter the resulting picture.
If you're confused by all the explanation, the three images above tell you everything you need to know. However, as a photographer, you should be comfortable shooting on full manual as you'll have much more control over the results when you can fine tune the settings.
When you perform that half-press on the shoot button and hear the beep, these indicators will light up and show you the settings you've selected as well as how the camera interprets the available light. Admittedly, some exposure bias is sometimes necessary but this method should work just fine a great deal of the time.
Your aperture is as open as you can get it and you don't want to sacrifice any more quality, so your only option is to decrease the speed of your shutter to allow more light in. With the camera up to your eye, there should be a little wheel next to your right index finger. Note that if you're using a flash, you can shoot at much slower shutter speeds as the flash captures the motion in place.
This should get you in the right neighborhood to start playing with your own settings in manual mode.
This mode allows you to set your own ISO and aperture so you have control over your depth of field and color noise. The more practice you get in on full manual, the more you'll become comfortable with every setting on your camera. If for some reason this produces a picture that is still too dark or too bright, apply exposure bias accordingly.
Both models are designed to take great photos and to be easy to operate – especially for new users who are buying a DSLR for the first time. Whereas the T5 felt like a rebadged T3 with some minor upgrades, Nikon gave the D3300 a bit more oomph. Newbies would find the D3300’s handholding guides particularly helpful in learning about all the features. Some nights are grey and overcast, some filled with stars, yet others are busy with the movement of clouds on weather fronts. These movements are detectable after about 5 to 10 minutes, and can be traced by your camera in the form of a streak.
If the conditions are both light and dark you need to use spot metering for an accurate reading.
Dona€™t forget to buy a cable release or a remote control for taking the picture a€“ this is important because some shots will take up to 30 seconds or even more. As we stated earlier, the process of finding the right exposure length for the image you want is going to be a process of trial and error (in terms of lens length, shutter speed, aperture setting, as all three allow for different effects).
Between the LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10, and Sony Xperia Z5, which do you think is better and probably the best in camera this year?
The Xperia Z5 is running on Marshmallow while HTC 10 with the latest version and has the widest angle lens in its main sensor followed by LG G5 and Galaxy S7. Look closely at the power lines, you would notice that ghosting on LG G5 is more apparent than the rest and even similar to its non-HDR photos. But first, for the color rendering, the Z5 trumps the 3 with its near natural color as the Canon.
The Z5 did well in lifting the dark areas but the color is greenish and the details are inferior.

Make adjustments to exposure, color, contrast, noise reduction and lens corrections in camera RAW as needed. Since I lacked any sort of formal training I had completely missed the fact that my camera would actually tell me how far off my exposure was and guide me to the "sweet spot" without ever pulling my eye from the viewfinder! It's also important to note that while the principals outlined here apply to all digital SLRs, the functionality discussed below applies specifically to Canons and may require some interpretation to be applied to cameras from other manufacturers. Unfortunately, as ISO increases so does color noise, which really brings down the quality of the photo. If you need your image to be brighter, decrease the denominator in both the aperture and shutter speed and increase the ISO.
You should hear a beep from the autofocus as the camera attempts to interpret what you want to focus on. You should see lots of numbers and settings that will vary from camera to camera, but they should at least resemble the simplified graphic below. Using the information above, you know that since there's not a lot of light available, you'll probably want to bump your ISO up to 800.
You're fine with the shallower depth of field because it produces that nice blurry background and crisp subject that you see often in professional photography.
The lighting in different areas of the rink varied dramatically, the players were of course constantly moving and I was experimenting with different zoom levels.
Even if your pictures are looking decent on the small screen, you'll be disappointed to see how blurry they are when you import them into your computer and view them at full size.
This will enable you to confidently approach setting your own exposure in nearly every situation and will help you become a much better photographer. Check out Envato Studio's servicesChoose from over 5 million royalty-free photos and images priced from $1.
While both cameras will satisfy the DSLR beginner, our tests found that the Nikon D3300 comes out on top. The D3300 has a new sensor that not only has a higher megapixel count, but it doesn’t use a low-pass filter, which helps it achieve better image quality. Long shutter speeds are the key to capturing imaginative and beautiful images of the sky at night, so be patient and this kind of photography will become second nature to you.


A truly dark sky is preferred, but artificial lights keep the night sky from being truly dark. Youa€™ll want to use a cable release to eliminate camera shake of any kind, as it will RUIN your photo. The charged solar particles move very fast and sometimes get hidden making it impossible to shoot them. Even though it is dark, you should try using an 80A blue cooling filter to enhance the blue cast of the sky and to reduce the yellow cast from the artifical lights. Your lens ideally should have an infinity focusing mode and your camera should have the ability to do a mirror lock up - a feature in which the mirror in the camera moves out of the way before the shutter is released. With long exposures of over 30 seconds, a cable release is necessary to ensure tack sharp final images. We used the main camera of LG G5 but the wide angle secondary sensor is really fun to use, check full review of LG G5 here. The sharpening process on Galaxy S7 looks worse with the jagged details and far from natural. I think the HTC 10 did a pretty job here and better than LG G5 despite the yellow overcast. The Z5 beats the rest in stabilization, thanks to the technology behind its SteadyShot feature. In today's tutorial, we're looking again at one of the most important elements of photography - exposure - and how you can expose a perfect photo using just the information shown in your camera viewfinder!
It wasn't until I had a strong grasp of how the exposure settings affected the end result that I really began taking nice photographs fairly easily. If you need your image to be darker, increase the denominator in both the aperture and shutter speed and decrease the ISO (you'll quickly learn to feel out all three together).
Consequently, shooting in full manual would've required a lot more settings adjustments and a lot less shooting than I would've liked. If you look into the viewfinder in this mode, you'll see that you camera dynamically adjusts the settings so that the ELI is in the center no matter where you're shooting. It also uses Nikon’s latest image processor, the Expeed 4, whereas the T5 is a using the Digic 4, which is about two generations behind. Both cameras include 18-55mm kit lenses that are okay to start out with, but eventually you’d want to invest in new glass. Many beginners aim at capturing the longest star trails by keeping the shutter open for long periods of time. However, if you follow these tips, you will be able to get the best aurora borealis photos. Dona€™t use flash if you can help it as this can affect the resulting image, creating an area of the photograph that is over-lit. This feature eliminates the vibration that occurs when the mirror slaps up into the camera housing. For additional variety and perhaps better photographs of stars in the sky, you might want to try a few B&W shots.
In the end, the decision will still matter to you and the inclusion of other features such as the display, battery life, processor, and much more.
Shutter speed is exactly what it sounds like: the amount of time the shutter opens to let light in. If it were lit up to the right of center, we would know that we are letting too much light in. The D3300 also trumps the T5 in movie capture, LCD brightness, high ISO range, faster burst mode, and battery life.
Overall, in terms of features and performance, the D3300 gets our Recommended vote, even though it’s slightly more expensive.
However, they tend to underestimate the impact generated by ambient light in the sky, which can be hard to notice at times.
A wide-angle lens is the best choice for night skies, and a zoom makes it even more versatile.
Dress warmly if the weather is cold, because sitting still on a cold night is much colder than walking in the cold, so extra layers may be needed.
Returned products must be in original condition including: box, UPC bar code, packaging, and all other accessories. The T5, meanwhile, suffers from a noisy shutter mechanism and doesn’t handle high ISOs well. In addition, residual light (such as moonlight) can have a devastating impact on long shutter speed photos. You should keep your ISO at 100 to keep the digital noise at a minimum, because the sky is so dark and less prone to producing digital noise when the exposure is above 15 seconds. You should be able to decide on the best range of exposures to capture some good photographs of an overcast sky. But the plusses for the T5 include that Canon “tone and feel” image quality we love, as well as a lower price – cost is always a deciding factor for many consumers.
If you keep few things in mind, such as the timing, composition, and power of the battery, you can make photographing star trails simpler for you. This is because when you keep the shutter open for say, nearly 20 minutes, an hour after the sunset, the camera may perceive it as a day shot. To complete the photo after your desired elapsed time, depress the remote again, and release the shutter.
The more images of the night sky you take, the more you will learn the best way to photograph them. Both cameras get a thumbs down for their mono microphones, considering both can shoot at Full HD 1080. Similarly, a full moon night photo with an exposure time of around 10 minutes could also look like a day shot. Therefore, it is best to attempt such a picture with either a new moon, or well before the moonrise or after the moonset.
Although any kind of lens will do for aurora borealis photography, you should choose a wide-angle and faster lens.
Compared to their respective predecessors (the T3 and D3200), the D3300 went through more of an evolution; the T5 seems like old technology. The light emerging from the stars would be more evident at this time and the picture would be perfect.

    For autofocus, one completely separate just keeps getting distant cousins, so that you may.
