Discover how custom functions can improve the way you produce images

Use Custom Functions To Personalize Your D-SLR

The ability to customize a professional digital SLR is likely both the best and most underused feature you'll find in today's cameras. With dozens of user-adjustable controls for focus, metering and more, these cameras offer great adaptability. But learning how and when to use these settings, particularly in combination with each other, is often a challenge for photographers who are busy creating images to make a living.

Camera Systems In The Digital Age

Today as camera manufacturers control all aspects of image capture and processing, it's time to reexamine what it means to buy into a system

Camera Systems In The Digital Age

In the photo press, the “designed for digital” discussion has tended to focus on lens design from the perspective of correcting for issues that are unique to digital sensors. For instance, image sensors, and the filters in front of image sensors, have a tendency to reflect some light back to the lens. To counter this, new coatings have been developed for the filters and the rear lens elements. This kind of innovation is certainly significant, but to think that “designed for digital” ends with new multi-coatings only hints at the real potential of a digital system.

Do You Need A Full-Frame D-SLR?

There are significant advantages to D-SLRs that are designed around sub-full-frame image sensors. Before you decide that only full-frame will do, consider all the angles.

Do You Need A Full-Frame D-SLR?

For the better part of the last three years, one of the biggest buzz topics for pro photographers going digital was the full-frame camera—an SLR with an image sensor that's physically the same size as a frame of 35mm film. Along with the implication of higher resolution, these cameras have the added benefit of not requiring users to apply a magnification factor to their lenses in order to determine the apparent focal length. In the past few months, however, several advancements call into question the superiority of the full-frame sensor.
