Things to remember before purchasing a camera
These days, cameras are the essential gadgets, and it is a good decision if you are planning to get one for yourself. If you are wondering the key points or specifications should you precisely investigate the camera for before going ahead then here is the checklist -
ISO - ISO describes how sensitive your camera is towards the light, which was known earlier as film speed. Higher the ISO of your camera, the brighter pictures you will get. With a bigger ISO you can shoot in low light condition without the need for flash.
Shutter speed - Shutter speed is something which tells how long camera takes to collect the light; this is measured in a fraction of second. Lower the shutter speed, the better is picture quality.
Aperture - Fewer focus numbers indicates wider aperture f/2.8 is the lowest that allows for maximum light to pass through, and higher signify more light being blocked.
Mirrorless cameras - As opposed to bulky pro-level DLSR’s, the modern day mirrorless (Micro Four Thirds) cameras are comparatively lighter thus enhancing its portability. Though feature- wise they may not beat DLSR, but they are getting there fast, in terms of lens quality and sensor size.
Autofocus - Correct focus lets the photographer to point the viewer of the object on which he/she needs to focus on. When checking for focus assess its effectiveness in both cases – for close objects as well as faraway objects. If the camera focuses fast on the object then it is likely to be a good buy.
Megapixel - Megapixel is the resolution of the camera. So if you need bigger prints of the image or photos, you need a higher resolution. This will be only a partial deciding factor along with sensor size.
Viewfinder - The viewfinder lets you see the exact image and allows you to frame and focus on the picture. They come in various forms – TTL (Through The Lens), electronic, and LCD/LED screen at the back of the camera.
White balance - By optimizing the white balance, you can ensure that the colour reproduction is accurate and isn’t too bright. An ideal white balance is a mid-point of the cool sky blue and warm desert shade. Most cameras come with auto white balance i.e. the camera decides for every single shot, what is a good white balance measure. Pro-level DLSRs also come with the option to manually adjust the white balance so that your final image is an exact reproduction of the picture you wish to capture.
Zoom - You need to know the difference between 'digital zoom' - ability to zoom AFTER the picture is taken) while 'optical zoom' ability to zoom BEFORE the picture is taken to expand the coverage within the image frame.By zooming into faraway objects you can shift the optical focus. A downside is that better zoom has smaller maximum apertures.
Stabilization - Image stabilization lets you steady the shot being taken so that the image produced is not blurry. It remains sharp and accurately reproduces the image. Lenses with Image Stabilisation carry the sign IS and are a great buy for non-blurry photographs.
