Dslr Buying Advice

If you're likely to want to shoot in low light, whether it's sunset landscapes or cosy jazz clubs, good low-light performance is a must. Most DSLRs can shoot at ISO 1600 and some go to ISO 3200, but performance varies a lot between different cameras. Also known as anti-shake or vibration reduction, this is either built into the lenses (Nikon, Canon, Panasonic) or is sensor-based and built into the camera itself (e.g. Sony, Pentax, Samsung). Though it's considered that lens-based stabilisation...

Iso

Both Raw and JPEG files share the same softness to them from the default settings, but once processed the results are crisp. The advantage of Raw images really comes through for processing, as you can fine-tune your sharpening and other adjustments at full 12-bit resolution before converting. Both JPEG and Raw files show impressive detail, though the Raw images, on the whole, just have that little bit extra.

Ql use a Canon IXUS 75 and, very occasionally, my images seem to have white dots and marks. Has dust got into the camera And if so, is it worth me getting it repaired Matt replies Without looking at your images it's hard to be sure what the issue is. If, however, this only happens occasionally, and only when you use flash, it sounds like the common problem of your flash illuminating small a general rule, you should always give a battery a full charge before you first use it, as it prolongs its...

Both The Lx3 And Gio Offer Impressive Specifications Which Dwarf Most Compact Cameras

Attractive manual dials for control of both ISO setting and exposure compensation. While the LX3 offers controls over ISO and exposure compensation in the conventional manner, it too sports its own manual controls - the camera houses a switch for both focus, on the side, and aspect ratio, on the top. While these represent by no means a wholesale manual control set-up, it's a nice gesture that makes the pair refreshing to use and a nice break from the continuous wave of compact cameras difficult...

Dell Inspiron Mini

A version of the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 is available with an integrated wireless broadband modem for a 21 month contract from Vodafone. The Mini 9 has a very clear dark gloss finish screen, and there is respectable battery life from the all solid-state configuration. The Dell Inspiron Mini 9 is cheap, but with only 4GB of local storage and Linux-based Ubuntu OS as standard, this may not be the ideal photographers' Netbook. However, outside of the contract configuration and, for some extra cash,...

The First Netbook

Laptop manufacturer Asus is credited with introducing the first Netbook back in 2007. That was the Eee PC, originally targeted as a small and affordable portable computer for schools and users in developing countries. Asus's strategy was interesting because the other compact computer platform around at the time - the Ultra Mobile PC UMPC -was struggling. UMPCs generally didn't look like conventional laptops and had touchscreens. But the Netbook was just like a miniaturised laptop. There was no...

Police State Britain

Over the last couple of years there has been a steadily increasing stream of incidents about photographers being harassed by police, PCSOs, security guards and so forth, and prevented from taking pictures, usually under 'anti-terrorism' laws. From the photographer arrested for photographing the Christmas lights to the Austrian tourists who were told by Police that it was forbidden to photograph London buses and forced to delete their photos. These almost daily occurrences seem to suggest that...
