DSLR Read and Write

  • Mirror system inside lets you preview through the viewfinder the same image that is being captured on film/sensor
  • one major way that DSLRs are different from consumer “point and shoot” cameras or phones: detachable lenses
  • prime lens: only one focal length
  • zoom lenses: variable focal lengths
  • HIGH ISO value means the sensor will be MORE sensitive to light, meaning it will take LESS LIGHT to get the right exposure
  • use the lowest ISO you can to avoid grain/noise
  • camera shake: occurs with a shutter speed slower than 1/ [focal length] of a second
  • the denominator becomes the f-stop number
  • smaller number actually represents a larger opening
  • more expensive but worth it even if you don’t need the largest aperture because lenses perform better at 2 stops smaller than their max. aperture
  • longer lenses APPEAR to have a shallower depth of field because they are magnifying the subject, which flattens the perspective and makes our eyes think the DOF is shallower
  • Setting the “correct” white balance setting tells the camera how to make your whites and grays neutral, without any color tint
  • Full Auto (green rectangle) – camera does EVERYTHING for you
  • CA (creative auto– camera does almost everything BUT lets you choose brightness, depth of field, picture style by pressing the Q button

Aperture controls the area over which light can enter your camera. Shutter speed controls the duration of the exposure. ISO speed controls the sensitivity of your camera’s sensor to a given amount of light. When shooting in low-light conditions, your shutter speed will typically decrease, resulting in camera shake or motion blur. To avoid such issues, you should increase ISO setting to a higher value, such as ISO 1600. Depending on your aperture and light conditions, you might need to increase ISO even more. Aperture Priority lets you choose the aperture setting you want, but the camera chooses the shutter speed. Shutter Priority lets you choose the shutter speed you want, but the camera chooses the aperture setting. To use autofocus with your camera, you’ll need to perform the following steps: Set the lens to AF mode. Most brands have a button on the lens and the camera body to switch between AF and MF mode. Press the shutter button halfway down or the AF-ON button if you use back-button focus to focus on your subject. Incident light metering will give you consistently correct exposure results, because it won’t be fooled by subject reflectivity. It means that if you want to copy the white balance settings from one image and paste them onto another that was taken with a different camera make or model, your final images might not look the same. Depth of field is the area of acceptable sharpness in front of and behind the subject which the lens is focused. Exposure Compensation allows photographers to override exposure settings picked by camera’s light meter, in order to darken or brighten images
