If you have interest in photography and you want to upgrade your camera equipment, buying a DSLR is a perfect investment. There are so many latest DSLR options available in the market that it has become difficult to select the right one according to our needs. Each camera has different specifications and features. Therefore, we have compiled a list of things to consider when you buy your first DSLR camera. This will help you make an informed decision. Have a look:
What most people don’t know about DSLRs is that it has an image sensor which basically records the photo from your viewfinder and transfers it into the memory card. The size of the sensor helps it to cover more information and shoot clear photos. The larger size of sensors makes them more durable and reliable as they get more magnified with larger frames. The largest sensor size is also called as full frame. These sensors have 35mm film. They are best for clarity and picture quality. The beginner level cameras have small sensors. The full frame sensors are expensive.
Sensor size is one of the most important things to focus on when it comes to the picture quality. Most people think that the amount of megapixels is the main deciding factor for the best image quality. Megapixels make the resolution better but you can’t solely rely on this factor only.
Video recording usually isn’t as good as picture quality in most cameras. If you are buying a DSLR to shoot videos, you must check on all the factors that make it a good choice for video recording. Some entry level cameras can make 1080p (full high definition) videos whereas some are only able to record 720p or non HD video recording. There are various recording frames for better motion and video quality.
Modes and Editing Features
All DSLRs have different editing features and modes. Portrait, action, landscape and night modes are present in DSLRs. There are some unique modes in some cameras like panorama (wide angle mode), bursts mode, food photography modes or scene detect auto modes which will help you take more exciting photos.
It is obvious to learn shooting pictures through different lenses and shutter points. In the beginning, it is always best to take pictures in manual mode. Make sure to check the modes of the camera you are buying so you know you aren’t missing on any new mode or feature that other recommended cameras have.
Photographers and most common users of camera ignore body details while making a purchase. It’s true that almost all DSLRs look similar but there are some things regarding the model that you must keep in your mind. Make sure your camera has a good LCD view screen so that you are able to check your photos properly. For video recording, the screens which pop and rotate are amazing. Such cameras are best for vlogs (video blogs). Also, search for the viewfinders which have the touchscreen so it gets easier for you to manage the controls of your camera.
