BEST FILM SLR CAMERA FOR BEGINNERS - CHEAP SPEED CAMERA DETECTORS.
Digital SLR Cameras & Photography For Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback))
Understanding exactly how a digital SLR (dSLR) works can help you use its exciting capabilities to their fullest potential. Whether you aim to become a serious photo hobbyist, are interested in turning pro, or want to take advantage of the improved control that dSLRs give you over your photography, this fun and friendly reference will show you how to maximize everything a dSLR has to offer so that you can improve your photography skills, increase your picture-taking and image-editing knowledge, and ultimately, take better photos.80% (12)
Written with just the right balance of technology and techniques in mind, this guide provides you with the know-how on everything from getting acquainted with the basic key features of the technology (lenses, sensors and image processors, and exposure and focusing systems) to the nuances of various dSLR techniques (setting up speedy continuous-shooting burst modes to capture fast action, applying selective and sharp focus, and shooting under the lowest levels of light). Other topics explored include:
Composing your shots with an accurate viewfinder
Deciding how many pixels your camera needs
Cleaning the sensor yourself
Choosing between a tripod or monopod
Adjusting exposure and improving shutter speed
Creating time-lapse sequences
Fixing murky or contrasting photos
With so much subject area covered, Digital SLR Cameras & Photography For Dummies, 2nd Edition not only introduces you to the fundamentals of great picture-taking with a dSLR, but goes beyond the basics. Some of the more advanced topics discussed include working with the various formats of digital photos, minimizing shutter lag and first-shot delays, and fixing up your pictures with various image-editing programs. This is just the book you need to progress from getting started with a dSLR to actually improving your dSLR photography!
Magazine articles and the like, in explaining the rudiments of digital photography to beginners, sometimes employ a comparison with film. RAW files, the readers are told, should be regarded as digital negatives, and "noise" is analogous with grain. Well yes, but with this important proviso: that noise looks ghastly whereas grain is a thing of beauty. I like this picture mainly for its granular beauty, best appreciated when viewing large. I love how the grain renders "aerial perspective" ...the way in which the diffusion of light expresses distance by making far-off objects less distinct. The distant trees appear as no more than a faint ragged shape; the gloomy pines in the middle distance, just beyond the approaching train, are seen in a little more detail. And all these subtly graduated tones, as I understand the matter, are rendered by the exposure to light of sensitised particles, suspended in an emulsion and applied as a coating to a length of celluloid. If you'd never seen a camera and had its workings explained to you, the whole business would seem so wildly improbable that you'd think it couldn't possibly work. It is fortunate that the grainy look is preserved when the photos are digitalised. With the image transformed into square pixels, you'd expect the effect to be lost. It's just a pity about the little, whirring, bus-like plastic train. This is quite a photogenic bit of railway line, but no interesting train ever comes this way. This was taken with my resurrected Chinon CM3 SLR and a Hanimex 80-200mm zoom lens which cost ?5.99 on eBay. I think the film was good old Kodak Tri-X.Nikon FM2 ( DSC4771)
I think the FM2 is the best gift one can offer a beginner. Three reasons. One, it will force him to learn the basics of exposure, compensation, depth of field, etcetera. Later, it will be easier to understand, compensate and properly use matrix and spot metering, and compensation. Two, it has a limited number of functions, which lets one concentrate on exposure and composition. I think it's more important for a beginner to ask himself: if I want a silhouette effect, should I be increasing or decreasing the exposure? than: should I be using dynamic auto focus with closest-subject priority with my 3D color matrix metering? Three, the camera is good enough that it will serve as a good backup when one grows to an automatic camera. It could also very well remain a first camera for life. In any case, it has very good resale value.
