Top 10 Tips for digital cameras
I just read an article by David Pouge in the NY Times on the top 10 considerations for a digital camera that is missed. I will summarize each item for those who do not get along very well with English. But it’s worth making the effort to read it, is a must
- Use “pre-focus” to reduce the problem of delay that usually have a digital camera in autofocus mode, just press the shutter half-time to give the camera to focus, then shoot. Very useful when you want to capture an image that happens very quickly
- Do not believe the myth of megapixels. Megapixels do not make a good camera.
- Ignore the digital zoom. In its quest to sell a camera, the manufacturers add digital zoom merely “stretch” the picture rather than closer. For best results, turn off digital zoom option. The optical zoom is really worth it and this is a lens that can actually bring an object.
- Purchasing the camera with a reasonable memory capacity, for example 512 MB. No doubt their default camera very little memory, just enough for 5 or 6 shots, so it is that in seeking different assumptions about these cameras include a reasonable memory size.
- Beware the storage format. Memory cards come in different formats with different performance standards, but also with different prices.
- Do some research before buying your camera. Luckily there are numerous websites on the internet that have excellent information, examples and testimonies of the most varied cameras.
- Know what kind of camera you need. Do not ask an expert in technology, “What camera should I buy?”. Because there are many answers to that very question. First identify your needs.
- Disable the fash, average flash is around 2.30 meters wide, so for a party at school, the flash would be useless.
- Turn on the flash, in contrast to the previous item, if you want to take a picture with high contrast of shadows (in a relatively close object), force the flash will help reduce the contrast.
- Turn off the LCD display. While this is the main attraction of a digital face, is also the Nro1 consumer batteries. In most cases you can use the optical viewfinder thus saving, a lot of battery.
