Understanding Your Camera: Exposure Basics : Martin Pot - Photography Blog Introduction This is the first article in a series that I am writing as I teach camera basics and camera operation to my children, in particular to my 11 year old son who wants to buy his first DSLR. My children have beenusingcameras for a while (with some good results), but typically use full-auto mode, or rely on me to adjust the settings for them. I thought it would be worthwhile to write a series of blog posts on this subject, to help other people who might be interested, and because one of the best ways to ensure you understand something is to try to explain it to others. Low light test of 5D Mark III raw vs H.264 The 5D Mark III is already a very capable low light camera. In its factory guise whilst not quite as clean as the Canon C300 or Sony FS100, it is the best DSLR for low light shooting (though the Nikon D5200 puts up a good fight). But that was before the latest developments with ML Raw. Has low light improved even further? The answer is a resounding yes.

Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki English | Русский News Feed Magic Lantern Firmware Magic Lantern introduction(09:48) Magic Lantern is an open platform for developing enhancements to the amazing Canon 5D Mark II and 550D/T2i digital SLRs. Why I Chose to Invest in a C300 over a RED MX(or a SCARLET) - Blog - Alex Wagner After lots and lots of deliberation, I finally made the decision to invest in a new camera. To be exact, I bought a Canon C300 with EF mount. I have been agonizing for almost 2 months now over getting a C300, a used RED MX, or putting together a DIT cart. I've owned a 7D for a couple of years now and my hope was that purchasing a higher end camera would help me get better work/less run 'n' gun videography-type gigs, or at the very least, provide me with another stream of income through rentals. I considered many options but one of my main criteria is "what do people want to rent?". Through research and recent experience working at a rental house, I narrowed it down to two cameras: the RED MX and the Canon C300.

The Feral Photographer: The Pocket Ringlight Ever since Maxim magazine made ringflashes/ringlights popular again, photographers have been using and overusing them to get that "look". I gotta admit I'm a sucker for the soft yet harsh quality to the light. Since almost all my photography is done on the move though, the large studio ringlights out there don't really work for me. The small macro ringlights are too weak and do not accommodate lenses with large filter diameters. The closest thing to a portable ring flash I've found was the Sunpak DX-12R. I ordered one and although it says it will work with lenses with filter diameters up to 77mm, they aren't really designed to work with wide angle lenses so I found it vignetted heavily with my Canon 16-35 lens

Understanding your GoPro Part 2 Stemming from the amount of interest on my first post – Understanding your New GoPro - I decided to dive a little deeper into some of the other aspects of the GoPro HERO3 Black Edition. There’s a lot of little things that are a bit harder to really know what’s going on inside that little box of ours. I’ll dive right in. Battery Life As you’ve probably noticed – this is one of the weakest areas of the HERO3. It’s due to the intense processing power required to run all those high resolutions and frame rates while the battery capacity actually decreased from the HERO2.

Custom Functions: A Hidden Treasure in Your Camera A while back, I posted a photograph on Flickr which lead to a discussion on the settings I used to create that particular image. I started listing away the basic exposure values (aperture, shutter,etc.) and then I got into custom function settings. As soon as “custom functions” entered the conversation, a barrage of questions quickly followed. What are custom functions? How do I access them?
