Can You Afford Not To Use Image Enhancements

Are images even real any more? Are they a true depiction of what a camera is capable of? The answer is, in most instances, probably not. The amount of people and companies that now add enhancements to their pictures is at an all time high. The percentage, estimated at around 70%, is staggering. Given the fact that most cameras (and up-to-date Smartphones) these days have a good selection of effects and filters built in, this is completely understandable. So why not take full advantage of what’s on offer. Add to that all the photo editing software that is available in […]

What To Look For When Buying Second Hand Lenses

Buying anything second hand requires a thorough examination to determine whether its worth the purchase or not. Second hand items all have a history, some better than others. You may not have a crystal ball that enables you to see the daily rundown of its past life, but you do have the item itself, and its external condition is a big indicator as far as telling the story of how it has been treated in its earlier life. This is extremely relevant with most used items, including cameras, and certainly just as important with camera lenses. This is not really […]

Best Website Offering Royalty Free Images For Commercial Use

What is the best website for downloading royalty free images which can be used with no copyright hassles, no attribution requirements, that are also allowed to be used for commercial purposes. Every month there’s a new image website that offers thousands of free-to-use images, all copyright free and able to be used for any purpose under a CC0 Creative Commons License. This is great in theory. More websites that offer free high quality photographs to use anywhere means that the person looking for images has a lot of choice. And for the most part that is true. However, with the […]

Samsung WB500 Camera Revisited

Other than using a fairly wide range of SLR’s, DSLR’s and Bridge Cameras, I also use, and in many ways actually prefer to use on a daily basis, capable point and shoot cameras. Whilst not as high-tech as the many DSLR’s, and usually with smaller sensors than both DSLR’s and Bridge Cameras, point and shoots can still deliver some impressive results. Add to that how small most of them are, and that most of the newer models can also record HD video, and you can probably see why I prefer them as an everyday carry camera compared to their other, […]

Wildlife Fakery And Cruelty For The “Perfect” Shot

This isn’t the first time such tactics have been used, there’s a lot of fakery in photography, but it is the latest to be reported as far as being featured on mainstream media is concerned. A contestant who took part in a photography competition (2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year), and just happened to snag first prize, is now under investigation to try and determine with certainty if he may have cheated his way to victory. Photographer Marcio Cabral won first prize with his picture of a glowing termite mound which appeared to have an Anteater at the base. See […]

Astrophotography Images By Camera Make And Model Type

From the Northern Lights, to Constellations and shooting the Moon, Astrophotography can be very exciting. Let’s also not forget about UFO’s, too, which seem to be getting photographed and filmed more than ever these days. The skies are filled with weird and wonderful imagery that’s just waiting to be seized in time by you and your camera. When people think about amateur Astrophotography they usually associate it with expensive DSLRs. But DSLR’s, while offering superb clarity for Astro scenes, can be the most expensive way to get started in this sector of photography. You see, most of the cheaper DSLRs […]

Camera Buying: Unknown Vs Second Hand Popular Brand

Everyone’s heard of the brands, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Sony and Panasonic, but step away from the major camera brands that dominate the majority of the marketplace and you will discover a whole host of other brands, most of which are produced and sold by companies located in Asia. The big differences between the top brands, like Canon and Nikon, compared to the widely unknown brands is the price (much cheaper), build quality and the cheaper components that are used in each product. That doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t some good digital cameras for sale offered by the unknown brands. […]
