The digital cameras that are making it easier to take great pictures are changing how we capture our lives, says the CEO of the photography business, Jeff Anderson.
“I’ve been using digital cameras for the last 20 years.
I started in the early days of digital photography, so I’m an early adopter,” Anderson said in an interview with The Globe and Mail.
“The camera is the ultimate tool.
You can’t go back to the analog cameras.”
Now, Anderson said, people want the flexibility to use the camera of their choice without having to pay a big premium.
And with that freedom comes a greater degree of creativity, he said.
“It’s a new way of taking pictures,” Anderson says.
“We’re getting closer and closer to having a true camera.”
The Globe recently asked Anderson about how to be more creative with your camera.
Here are five tips.
Buy a bigger camera.
“One of the big changes that’s happened over the last 10 years is the availability of digital cameras,” Anderson told The Globe.
“So if you want to get good quality pictures, you can now do that with a camera that’s bigger.”
Anderson said that when it comes to choosing the right camera for you, “you really need to consider how much you’re spending.
If you’re doing business with a lot of customers and you want a good quality picture, you need a camera with a sensor that’s about twice the size of the current one.”
So if you are a large business with multiple photographers and you’re looking to shoot with a digital camera, look at the larger, high-end cameras.
“A couple of years ago, a lot more people would have bought a Sony A7 or a Canon 50D than a Sony RX100,” Anderson explained.
Now, there are a lot fewer lenses out there, so you can get a lot better results with a lens that’s twice as big.”
Choose a digital zoom.
“Digital zooms have been around for a long time.
I’ve been shooting with them for about 15 years.
Now, there’s been a lot new technology introduced that’s going to improve on their performance,” Anderson added.
“For instance, the D300 has been around since 2010, and it’s the most popular camera for taking stills, and now the D800 is coming out as well.”
The D800 has a wider sensor than the A300, and its sensor is twice the resolution of the A3 and D800.
“If you want the best possible picture, go for a camera like the D600,” Anderson recommended.
“This is the big one.
The D600 has a really large sensor, and that’s great for low light.”
Find a lens with a good aperture.
“In order to do that, you have to know how far away you want your subject to be,” Anderson continued.
“And if you’re going to be in a dark room, the A1 is a great choice for me.
It’s not that good for a studio, but it’s good for the day.
The A1 has a big aperture, which is very useful for low-light photography.
The smaller aperture on the A4 can also make for a great low-angle lens.”
A small aperture means you get a wide aperture. “
That’s what you want in a lens.
A small aperture means you get a wide aperture.
If I want to take a photograph at f/4, I can use the A2 or A3.”
Choose the right lens.
“You should pick a lens for your situation.
You want to have the right size sensor.
You need to have a very good lens for the size you want,” Anderson advised.
“On a D300, you want it to be a lot wider than on a D800, and the D4 is about the same size as the D2.
If the D100 is what you’re shooting with, you don’t need to worry about the size.
You just need to choose the right one.”
The A4, for example, is about two and a half times larger than a D3.
And the D200 has a larger aperture than the Pentax K-50, and is about one and a third times the size as a D2 lens.
Use your memory card.
“What you’re not doing is shooting with the camera in your pocket,” Anderson cautioned.
“Instead, you’re using your memory cards.
You don’t know if they’re going out of warranty, or you don
