Image Format … What’s the difference between JPEG and RAW? Most point and shoot cameras capture your image as a JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), a very common image format. JPEGs are easy to edit and store since they are compressed. However, when you move into more professional photography, the need for unaltered images is significant. Serious photographers consider any loss of image quality or information completely unacceptable. Most DSLRs still capture photographs in JPEG and RAW formats. JPEG Most photographers have managed JPEGs  before as they’re the most efficient image file format. Because it is a compressed or “lossy” file…

DSLR Features … what kind of technology is built into DSLRs? Image Stabilization The technology of image stabilization is constantly being refined and is being incorporated not only in lenses but in newer DSLR camera bodies as well. If the body has built-in image stabilization or vibration reduction, it usually allows for a couple of extra stops of leeway, so handheld photography is steadier. This allows a slower shutter speed, but you can still produce a sharp image (with less required light!). “In-body” stabilization typically involves the sensor shifting to compensate for movement. Not every manufacturer supplies camera bodies with…

DSLR Advantages… Why choose a DSLR? Economical Although the initial cost may be greater than a traditional film SLR, digital SLRs make up ground by saving on developing fees and consumables such as film. Taking multiple frames is limited only by the size of your memory card and over-shooting has little or no cost impact. The digital camera revolution has allowed photographers to save on materials and has provided the freedom of shooting to their hearts’ content without repercussions. Digital files are initially stored on your memory card, which is re-usable, but you can back up your images on inexpensive…

Introduction… What is a DSLR camera? Besides the obvious size comparison, slim compact digital point and shoot cameras and digital SLRs have a myriad of significant differences. A Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera, unlike a point and shoot model, uses a mirror behind the lens to direct light toward the viewfinder. This means when you are looking through the viewfinder, you see exactly what the image sensor will capture. Once you press the shutter button, the mirror moves out of the way and allows light to hit the sensor instead of the viewfinder. On the other hand, point and…
