Enthusiast Compact Camera Group Test (Q4 2010) Review: 1. Introduction It wasn't so long ago that DSLRs were out of financial reach for most enthusiast photographers. Back before DSLRs fell below the magic sub-$1000 mark, the only way for most people to 'go digital' was to invest in a high-quality compact, offering SLR-like control, but without the expensive extras - the large sensor and interchangeable lens mount. These days, of course, DSLRs are far more attainable than they once were, making high-end compacts less of a 'next best thing' purchase than in the past, and more of a luxury. In fact, the high end compact sector is sometimes referred to as the 'luxury' compact market - a fact that is indicative of the changing times, as well as the greater purchasing power of today's enthusiast photographers. The Coolpix P7000 and the S95 (alongside its predecessor the S90) are very different from previous cameras in their long-established ranges and they clearly demonstrate a desire on the part of their designers to be taken seriously.

10 Top Photography Composition Rules There are no fixed rules in photography, but there are guidelines which can often help you to enhance the impact of your photos. It may sound clichéd, but the only rule in photography is that there are no rules. However, there are are number of established composition guidelines which can be applied in almost any situation, to enhance the impact of a scene. These guidelines will help you take more compelling photographs, lending them a natural balance, drawing attention to the important parts of the scene, or leading the viewer's eye through the image. Once you are familiar with these composition tips, you'll be surprised at just how universal most of them are. Rule of Thirds Imagine that your image is divided into 9 equal segments by 2 vertical and 2 horizontal lines. Doing so will add balance and interest to your photo. Notice how the building and horizon are aligned along rule-of-thirds lines. Balancing Elements Leading Lines The road in this photo draws your eye through the scene. Depth
Scrublands : Antoine Bruy Antoine Bruy ©Antoine Bruy +33 (6) 75 46 00 email@example.com Nikon D700 long term test Digital SLR Review Will Cheung on the Nikon D700Gary Wolstenholme on the Nikon D700Our original Nikon D700 review The Nikon D700 was announced back in the summer of 2008. Two years on, with digital cameras having a rapid churn rate, you could be forgiven for thinking that it is coming to the end of its useful shelf life and will be superseded shortly. This is pure speculation on our part but it could explain why Nikon UK recently announced that if you buy a D700 before the end of the June you get a free MB-D10 grip worth £260. Moreover, this September is Photokina, a massive bi-annual show in Germany where the manufacturers launch their latest product ranges. With the camera selling at £1784 at Warehouse Express and a MB-D10 worth £260, that takes the body price down to an effective £1504. We asked two long-term D700 users - who betweeen them have taken under 200,000 shots on their D700s - for their very personal views on this popular full-frame Nikon DSLR. I switched camera systems because of the D700.
9 creative photo ideas to try in December | Digital Camera World - page 3 03 Shoot a studio portrait To light this striking portrait shot, photographer Dave Kai-Piper used only a Nikon SB900 Speedlight flashgun modified with an Orbis Ringflash adapter. The ringflash was attached onto the flash to help produce an even, soft light and pick up detail. “Randomly, this image was taken in a kitchen in Munich,” Dave reveals. Dave tethered his camera so that the images appeared instantly in Photoshop Lightroom on his computer. “However, I also decided to further enhance the gentle vignette in Photoshop in order to improve the overall effect.” Get started today… * Pose your model at a profile angle and light the face using natural or flash light. * Shoot in Manual mode and set the shutter speed to 1/200 sec.

Webdocumentairement vôtre, partie 1 Le webdocumentaire, ou webdoc' pour les familiers, les aficionados, ceux qui ont les bras dedans jusqu'au coude et le cerveau qui pense "interactif" quand on leur parle d'information, c'est une expérience documentaire qu'on fait nôtre, un peu beaucoup, passionnément. En 2005, pour la première fois La Cité des Mortes nous laissait le choix; celui d'en savoir plus, de sauter un passage, de partager et de débattre. Depuis, ces docus en ligne ont fait un sacré bout de chemin sur le plan technique, celui de la narration, de l'interactivité, ou encore de l'esthétique. Que vous soyez novice du genre ou passionné, ces cinq webdocumentaires devraient calmer, pour un moment du moins, votre jolie manie de toucher à tout et d'être un peu trop curieux.

Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Review FeaturesHandlingPerformanceVerdict and ratingsSpecification In 2004, Nikon's D70 camera caused quite a stir, offering some features and resolution seemingly reserved for contemporary professional and semi-pro bodies such as the D1x and the D100, but at a cut down, bargain basement price. At the time the specification and overall performance was so good for the price, it pretty much made the D100 redundant as it offered little extra for its higher price point. Over time Nikon have made this a bit of a habit. When the D300 camera was announced in 2007, it pretty much made the older D2x redundant, except for those who had the need for hammering nails with their camera. In their continued effort to blur divisions between different levels of camera within their range, Nikon have now released the D7000, which sits at the top of their consumer SLR range. Nikon's D7000 is sealed against dust and moisture. A new 2,016 pixel RGB sensor takes care of exposure metering. Nikon D7000: Performance
