Milenko Kindl goes digital

  1. Almost everyone these days has a digital camera, in one form or another.
    Some people have more than one, or more than one kind of digital camera.
    They come in all shapes, sizes, colours, resolutions, and of course
    price range. Most modern mobile phones have a built in camera, and the
    picture quality is improving all the time with them. Not too many years
    ago, the "norm" was for people to have a compact 35mm film camera. The
    problem with these cameras though was that you had to wait for your
    pictures to be developed, to see what sort of pictures you had taken.
    You also paid for the bad ones to be developed as well as the good. The
    picture here is one that I took of a sunset whilst sailing my boat Secana.

    The reasons for the upsurge in popularity of the digital camera are :
    1.They are relatively cheap price. (approx $50 - $100 ) for a 5
    megapixel camera.i.e 5 million pixels, or points of colour in each
    image. As a rule of thumb, the higher the number of megapixels an image
    has, the sharper it's definition will be. Though in truth, 3-5
    megapixels is usually adequate for most peoples needs.
    2. A digital camera will give you instant results, don't like it, then
    delete, and take again.
    3. With a SD (secure digital ) card you can take literally thousands of
    pictures, and store them on your camera's card. When full you can save
    them onto your computer, or simply plug in a new card, and keep the full
    SD card as a digital photo album. You can get digital photo frames that
    you just plug your SD card into, to continually display your photos.
    4. If your photos aren't as good as you would like, then there is image
    editing software that can improve your photos appearance.

    Of course there are other factors involved in the quality of the image
    that you get - how good is the lens ? Although a good quality camera
    lens will not ensure good photos, it can make a difference, as can the
    choice of camera setting, subject matter, movement, lighting. Try to
    eliminate problems before you press the shutter button. Using zoom? then
    either use a tripod, or brace yourself against something solid. When
    using zoom, any shaking will be magnified,and increase the likelihood of
    a blurred picture.

    Although, I will play with manual settings on my camera form time to
    time, I normally just leave it set to auto. Some cameras have special
    setting for beach, sport, night time, sunset, snow etc. These settings
    will usually automatically adjust either the aperture - how much light
    enters the camera, or the shutter speed, or both, to try and prevent
    over or under exposure problems. If your camera has different settings,
    play with them and find out what the results are. If the photos are no
    good, delete them.
