Olympus E-620 Digital SLR Camera

i've been using this camera for a thirty day period and have grown to like it a growing number of. I have been using a canon 20D and still have found it heavy, cumbersome and I happen to be having great difficulty getting sharp pictures. The e-620 is a opposite. Small, light, and sharp pictures even at relatively slow speeds (thanks into the built in Image Stabilisation - it works! ). I appreciate some people like heavy cameras as well as some don't. If you don't, then get this specific camera. You'll love it too. The two kit lenses are usually the best kit lenses you'll likely come across and together they cover the 35mm the same of 28mm - 300mm. This camera is as user friendly as anyone could wish and as intricate and comprehensive as your photographer's heart may desire. The swivel live view is GREAT. Can't be all good? Well I think not, but the only slight negative, determined by your photo requirements, is noise at bigger speeds. 800 iso and above noise turns into more intrusive. Below this it's not issues. For most people this will not be a problem and I believe this can be a small price to pay for all the advantages of which there are a huge amount. i can gush on and on but I guess by now you might realise I LOVE IT!

Nikon D300S Digital SLR Camera

 

being a long term user of any Nikon D200, I was looking for a DX sensor size successor to that particular and despite the plethora involving new Nikon models, some apparently offering a better 'pixel count' there was only really one choice as it was important to me that we have the same ability to regulate the operation and settings as pondered with the D200....so, a D300s it absolutely was.

The autofocus system is superb - aren't as quick as a D3 but I doubt that a lot of us ordinary mortals would notice of which, and the ability of the system to lock on to fast moving aircraft or birds in flight is impressive without a doubt. The build quality is approximately Nikon's usual standard for their professional distinct cameras, and the controls layout are going to be very familiar to a D200 individual. The ability to record 14 bit RAW/NEF images can be quite welcome, but beware as the use of the option to save these in uncompressed form you can expect individual image file styles around 26MB! - superb good quality, but you will quickly take space on your memory cartomancy....

Out of the box the D300s comes with a small amount of fully user-adjustable Picture Controls, but the truth is can easily download additional versions from Nikon's website.

It might be an unfair comparison but WE also own a reasonably brand-new D90, and can recommend that any current user of a D90 that takes their photography seriously and wants to move up to a far more professional DSLR seriously considers the D300s - it happens to be in a different league, and can put the onus on that you take images that fully use it's capabilities.

Even now, some weeks after its purchase with new Nikons gonna hit the High Street, personally i think confident I made the fantastic choice....

Oh yes - it will take good quality videos too!

Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera

  • 12.3 Megapixel Nikon DX format CMOS
  • Vari-angle 2.7 inch LCD colour monitor
  • 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G lens
  • Video facility records 720p HD movie clips
  • 11-point autofocus system with 3D focus tracking
I upgraded to the D5000 from a Nikon D40, and I am very glad I did so! The design appealed to me, with its swivel display screen (I need to admit, I really preferred that idea and it swayed it for me) and simply the look of it's nice. It is solid feeling, whilst not too heavy (though it's heavier than the D40), sturdy, and straightforward to carry whilst taking photos. I bought it with the 18-55mm lens kit, and I additionally had the 55-200mm lens from my previous digital camera, which works on it.

The photographs are of incredible quality, and I have not even read the manual yet, I am just going on my knowledge from the D40 (it is rather comparable however has more options), so I'm certain as soon as I've learn that, I shall be getting even more fantastic results. The video can be a pleasant characteristic, a bonus in DSLR's, and I was told to not count on much once I purchased it. However I am pleased with it. You do really need to have it on a tripod, and in case you are taking a video of one thing transferring, it may well go a bit blurry if the article comes any nearer, however that is to be expected. The sound on is is nice quality.

Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone. It's only a disgrace it's so costly, however, I did feel it was worth it. Additionally, when shopping for a NIkon DSLR, remember to have a reminiscence card once you get the digital camera, as they haven't any inside reminiscence at all.

Canon EOS 550D Digital SLR Camera

     * 18 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor
    * DIGIC 4 processor with ISO a hundred-6400 (Growth to 12800)
    * Steady shooting at 3.7fps
    * Full HD film recording with manual management and selectable frame charges
    * 7.7cm (3.zero inch) 3:2 Clear View LCD with 1,040k dots

After researching for several weeks through Canon's giant variety of DSLRs, I came to the conclusion of purchasing a 500D due to it's high reputation. Just as I used to be about to seal the deal, I got here throughout the not-so-a lot talked about 550D. Though higher in specs, I used to be unsure whether or not its lack of hype was resulting from poor high quality or its more moderen debut: I made a decision to add to basket and cross my fingers.

Wow. In substitute to a Sony Cybershot, it seems as if any photograph taken is stunning. The picture high quality is excellent and the auto settings make a world of difference. Though not probably the most expensive of the Canon EOS range, the digital camera feels completely professional. The battery life passed my expectations and the flash is a beast, albeit generally I find myself switching to 'Flash off' mode. The body is sturdy and light-weight and the HD video perform is fantastic.

My solely complaints are that the microphone isn't great and tends to pick up a variety of 'fuzz' and that the mode settings utilize the wheel to navigate as opposed to the generic d-pad. Furthermore, the professionals outweigh the cons marginally therefore my excessive rating.

The proper 'first real digital camera' for any aspiring photographer whose able to up their game. Although pretty big bucks, you won't remorse it; I do know I haven't!

I've been utilizing the D60 intensively for greater than per week and have taken a whole lot of photos. Photos are sharp and vibrant with comparatively little noise even at ISO 1600. The digicam's deserves relative to a very good compact are most clearly seen in low mild situations.

 

Utilizing it exterior in any respectable light, the digicam produces fantastic photos, subject to the many limitations of the particular person behind the lens. I am unable to even blame the handling of the camera, that is good too.

 

The lesser three level autofucus is made up for on the nikon by it is good metering which gets it proper each time. The 18-55mm equipment lens is nice for walkabout however possibly a bit quick for portrait work. Results are beautifully sharp although and it works properly in low light. The in-built flash is a lot better than I expected. Pink eye reduction actually works too.

 

The controls are intuitive, the picture quality and vibration discount features excellent. The show at the again actually helps the newcomer to dSLRs understand the implications and relationships between shutter pace and aperture, white steadiness and so on and there is a useful help function which gives fundamental explanations, making dSLR pictures highly intuitive and the educational curve very steep but easy. This is a wonderful digicam for a beginner.
