Using Manual Mode

Using the manual mode

Digital SLR cameras, and for that matter Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens cameras both come with the manual shooting option. Look for something on the main mode dial that says ‘M’. Switch to this and you are now in the manual mode. The terms ‘manual option’, or the ‘manual mode’ are used interchangeably. They both mean the same thing, metering a scene manually to take a picture. Professionals will always use this mode, on the other hand, amateurs will be skeptical using it the first time. Most amateurs will probably never use this mode because they find it extremely difficult to adjust the exposure to correctly meter a scene. The reason is most don’t quite properly understand the concepts of exposure in the first place.

Introduction to Shooting 50mm prime

Together with the 35mm lens a 50mm fixed focus lens is considered to be standard prime. The photography world is polarized between these two primes with each group having its distinct favorite. In this article we shall look at the 50mm prime lens and walk through some of its features and disadvantages.


A prime lens is essentially a lens with a single focal length. Unlike zoom lenses, there’s simply isn’t a way to turn a ring and zoom forward. What you get, however, as a compensation for its inability to zoom, is a blindingly fast aperture. All those high speed photography freaks can hope to use shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second and higher when pairing their full-frame camera with this lens. Additionally, the 50mm is the closest when it comes to the angle of view that the human eye has. Thus the name ‘standard prime’.

The Best Beginner dSLR?

The Best Beginner dSLR?It’s probably one of the most commen questions asked in the photography forums - “I’m just becoming interested in photography, and my point-and-shoot camera/camera phone/other camera just isn’t cutting it anymore… So what’s the best beginner dSLR?” It’s the gateway question into the wonderful world of photography. The answer the budding photographer receives could shape their photographic purchases for years, even decades, to come. For those of us that participate regularly in photography forums like the Corner, it’s a question we come across frequently, and one we (hopefully, at least) answer with some thought.

For many, it usually comes down to choosing the (usually) newest and cheapest dSLR that’s made by _____ or _____ (fill in whatever company names you want - but it’s almost always Nikon and Canon these days). Several times a year, the answer will change - the Canon Digital Rebel, the Nikon D50, the Canon 550D, the Nikon D40, the Nikon D5000, and the list goes on. I asked on Twitter and our Facebook Fan Page, and almost every response I received was different - literally dozens of different answers with no real clear winner.

What it really comes down to is personal preference. If you’re in the market for a good, beginner dSLR, there are several to choose from, but before you make up your mind, head down to your local camera shop and hold them in your hand. Some cameras simply “feel right” in your hands, and that may be enough of a tie-breaker to pick one. Sure ‘camera X’ has slightly different features than ‘camera Y’, and ‘camera Z’ has more megapixels than ‘camera X’, but a smaller LCD screen - they all are a little different. But when it comes down to it, a good learner camera for me could be different from a good learner camera for you - we may have different photographic tastes and expectations, different sized hands, different subjects, different feature requirements. So the answer to the question “What is the best beginner dSLR?” is “whatever one seems to fit your photographic needs.”
