As a former PCMag staffer, I can genuinely say that this is Toys R Us for geeks.
As SLR users, we are all aware of the many components and features of the cameras we shoot with every day, because the SLR has become the universal standard for today's professional and serious amateur photographers. But where did this highly successful camera design come from, and what turned the SLR into the success that it is today?
Take a look with us at the Canon Powershot DSC-SX230 HS, a travel zoom point-and-shoot camera with Canon Movie Digest mode and a 14x lens that zooms from a wide 28 to 392mm (equivalent). The SX230 has a 12MP backlit CMOS sensor, sensitive to ISO 3200. It can capture good low-light pictures and has full 1080 HD video at 30 fps for detailed motion pictures with stereo sound, slow motion up to 240 fps and a GPS function to geo-tag your photos.
A question we hear often at B&H is, "What lens should I buy?" We may follow up with, "What are you going to shoot with it?" The reason for this is because different lenses are meant for different shooting situations. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a lens (or lenses) for your camera system.
Beauty Dishes are light modifiers that take your light source, bounce the output against an internal reflector, and then spread that light out via the inside of a white dish. The result is beautiful soft light that is similar to a softbox. Beauty Dishes are more versatile than that though, depending on how you place them or modify them. But what if you want to use your beauty dish with your existing on-camera strobes? Here are two methods how to do this.
Like many of you, I don't always like to shoot with my DSLR, because of how bulky and heavy it can be. Sometimes, I just want a good point-and-shoot. But to get a really good photo, lighting is so important. I'm a big lover of strobist techniques, so using them with a point-and-shoot was always something that I wanted to test out a bit.
