Stock Your Kit with Digital Camera Accessories Written by Kevin Rockwell
There are a large number of digital camera accessories available in market today. Even though you might have invested a few hundred dollars in your digital camera (although they are getting cheaper by day), you should buy yourself a few accessories as well so that you can enhance photo quality of your pictures and be able to capture anything that comes along in your daily digital life.
Software that can help you to organize your images properly is one of essential digital camera accessories that you need. Remember time when you returned from a vacation with your friends and you had over 100 images to organize? This is when you realize value of such software.
There are a large number of such software apps available today. These include image-editing programs such as Photoshop Element 3 by Adobe. This program is an improved version of older Photoshop Album and consists of some great image organizing tools. Then, we also have Digital Image Suite 10 by Microsoft that has some cool features that allow you to very easily arrange your images in a particular order.
In addition to image enhancing capabilities, another problem that one faces is that normally digital cameras come with a limited data storage capacity. And when you are out vacationing, it is not always possible to keep on loading your pics onto your laptop (especially if you are trekking up Mt. Everest). So, one of most handy of digital camera accessories is a Memory Card or a Secure Digital Card. These are extremely cheap, i.e. price starts from a mere $30 and increases according to memory capacity that you need. They are available in all stores that sell office or computer related items. Stock up your kit with several extra memory cards and you will never run out of room to store your images.
Move up to the world of the Digital SLR CameraWritten by Kevin Rockwell
A digital SLR camera or a single lens reflex (SLR) camera is one of most popular cameras amongst photographers today. These cameras not only provide high quality images but photographer can also largely control how he wants final product to look like. Hence, people who are extremely fond of clicking pictures have a great time while using a SLR camera. If you have a creative spark in you then you will want to consider one of these at some point. I am using a Canon Rebel right now but Nikon F6 is next on my horizon of my purchases. These are moving into 8 mp and up range now so quality is quite good. The SLR is not cheap at all. The price historically started at about $5,000 Ė which is very steep. So, only those who are either professionals or wannabes purchased an SLR for themselves. Nowadays however, in order to make SLR available to a larger number of photographers, companies such as Canon and Nikon have come up with SLRs falling in price range of around $1000 without extra lenses. What is it that attracts people to an SLR ? One of main reasons is that an SLR produces pictures which are of much higher quality than point-and-shoot cameras. The contrast and color are extremely good since lenses used in an SLR are of very good quality. It is an old maxim in photography world that much of quality in your images comes from glass you put in front of camera. The better glass better photo, it worked in film days and it still works in digital age. The camera is important but donít skimp on lens.
