Camerawize is a great site for finding out about the latest compact cameras from some of the biggest manufacturers. Check out our reviews by taking a look at the menu bar. Here is an explanation of the types of cameras you will find there.


Bridge Cameras

Bridge cameras are hybrid cameras that are designed to encourage compact camera users to move towards a ‘proper’ SLR.

Whilst Compact System Cameras can claim to combine the best attributes of compacts and SLRs, Bridge cameras tend to look heavy and chunky like SLRs but don’t have the advantage of being able to change lenses. Consequently, they often get a poor press, being neither one thing or the other. Whilst they are simple to use, they also offer the enthusiast the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skill-set. They can often be the camera of choice for those people who want higher quality than the ordinary compact can offer, some decent functions and options, and a reliable zoom.


Compact Cameras

Compact Cameras have carved their place in the modern photographic landscape. Whilst point-and-shoot is often used as a derogatory term, that is exactly what they are for and many of them do it very well.

Before Digital technology came onto the scene, most cameras had to be a certain shape to fit in the Single-Lens Reflex system.Modern digital SLRs still have that system as it enables the user to look through the lens and see exactly the picture which is about to be taken. This is particularly useful if there are filters on the lenses. However, compact cameras don’t have this system and digital technology allows them to be small and thin. The only restricter for them is the quality of the lens. Recently lenses have become much better, as the major manufacturers take the market seriously and try to combat the progress of mobile phones.


Compact Systems Cameras

CSCs are serious cameras that make taking pictures fun again

The Compact System Camera, (CSC) is a hybrid system that gives you the practicality of a compact camera with the flexibility of an SLR camera. Essentially it is the size of a medium compact camera, able to easily fit into a handbag or pocket ( with a pancake lens attached), but it has a range of lenses that can be fitted, just like an SLR. These types of cameras might seem to be an unnecessary luxury, had the manufacturers not chosen them as their technological playground. Not only are they stylish, extremely competent and practical, they are also awash with exciting features. The Nikon J1 and V1, for example, offer Motion Snapshot Mode which allows you to take a second of footage around a still shot, which you can turn into a favicon, can shoot a mind-blowing 60 Frames per Second and shoots full HD video.

The birth of photography for everyone

The principles of photography are pretty simple. Light enters a box through an aperture, hits a responsive plate or film which is then developed to reproduce the image. Pinhole cameras are the most basic example of the science, and for many years at the beginning, nothing much changed. The lenses were often short with poor focus and the responsive plate was unreliable and fragile. Gradually things improved, but the whole process was slow, complicated and impractical. We have all seen the old images of the 19th century photographer, his head tucked under a sheet while the subjects froze for minutes until the chemical had worked their magic. Whilst this system can produce some remarkably sharp and richly detailed images, they are not portable to any degree and today, tend to operate in professional studios.

Photography – Lighting For Wedding Photography

by Evan Scott

Lights is a vital ingredient for wedding photography. Unlike other parts of professional photography, weddings require all kinds of lighting, all on the same day, for example window light, landscape lighting, bounce lighting, and multiple electronic lighting.

Newly Married CoupleEach type of light have their drawbacks but in addition offers opportunities for creative work. To be able to appreciate fine lighting, study the works with the master painters.

Notice what sort of artists were mindful of lighting and lightweight direction; shadows fall since they would in the naturally lit scene. They understood the problem in trying to make a two-dimensional. Increasingly, electronic flash equipment, which consists of automatic thyristor circuitry, is being used as the easy way to photograph a wedding.

Some photographers boast they can shoot a whole job at f/8, allowing the flash unit to accomplish the work. Unfortunately, this kind of lighting is really noticeable and unappealing.

Both the broad kinds of lighting discussed here are: existing light and electronic flash. Existing light includes natural light and the light sources encountered, such as lamps or chandeliers.

Electronic flash or strobe lighting includes single and multiple lighting setups, together with umbrella as well as the other bounced lighting.

Existing light. Capturing in existing light that are consistently well exposed is not an simple task.

As a result of great color variation in the bride’s white gown along with a groom’s black tuxedo, cameras with built-in light meters won’t suffice and therefore are rarely utilized in wedding photography.

A reliable way of measuring light is crucial. There are two types of exposure meters available: those who measure incident light, and those that measure reflected light.

An incident-light meter measures the number of light that falls onto a white dome that collects the sunshine. Even lighting condition including shade, the reading will likely give a proper exposure.

Reflected-light meter measures the power of light coming from the subject. Critical users of sunshine meters have a tendency to prefer this kind. The meter is pointed toward the subject from the camera position or in the line from you toward the niche.

To photograph with window light, place the subject near to the window and searching toward it. Direct sunlight creates harsh shadows and highly contrasting highlights and shadow areas and unless some type of fill light is used, the shadow side from the face will have insufficient illumination. Fortunately, more diffuse shaded light is usually available.
