  • I just cant choose between the sl2 and the t7i?

    Best answer: You REALLY REALLY need to get to a camera store and physically hold each camera in your hand(s). The main claim to fame for the SL2, (and previous SL1 which I have), is small size. The size and weight difference between the SL2 and the T71 is considerable. If you are planning on keeping the camera with you a lot... show more

If you are planning on keeping the camera with you a lot during traveling, the smaller size and weight of the SL2 could be extremely important to you, far more than focus points.

  • Will wearing hats, hoodies and sunglasses really make public cameras unable to recognize me or scan my face?

    Best answer: Most public cameras are just that, cameras! If they need to run it through facial recognition software the footage usually has to be removed to another location to do that.

When using facial recognition the agencies doing it are already using a database that only contains "persons of interest".

    If your face can be seen it can be run though the software!
    So if you are caught face on, but wearing a hat or hoodie it'll still have a very good probability of recognising you.
    Sunglasses on their own still allow enough of your features to be seen to generate possible matches.
    To completely fool the software you would need to be wearing a padded ski mask and goggles!

    Be aware that it ain't anything like the movies, but this software does exist!

  • I just got a Polaroid One Step Rainbow at an antique shop. Need help with the broken shutter button.?

    Best answer: The only thing I know you might try is getting a can of CONTACT CLEANER. This has a small plastic nozzle you use to spray the cleaner into small areas. It is designed for use with electrical mechanisms to help free them up and clean them but with no harmful residue. If contact cleaner does not work, you will... show more

It is designed for use with electrical mechanisms to help free them up and clean them but with no harmful residue. If contact cleaner does not work, you will probably be best off to leave it as is for decoration. Even if you get the button working, you would likely run into more and more problems with it.

    Best answer: 80% of what goes into making great photos happens outside of the camera. Having a $50,000 camera and no idea what you are doing will only result in bad photos that are super sharp.

    Agree with others that you should put more money in lenses than the body. A cheap body with a great lens will always produce better looking photos than a expensive body with a cheap kit lens.

    Since you want to do video, I would recommend that you stick with Canon over any other brand of DSLR. The only thing better than Canon for video is Sony or Panasonic mirrorless cameras. Both Sony and Panasonic are many years ahead of Canon in terms of their video performance. The GH4, which was discontinued last year, is still much better at video than anything from Canon at any price.

    You should also understand what are the pitfalls of using a DSLR for video. For example, you can't record longer than about 12 minutes in full HD because the camera can not record files larger than 4GB, which is about 12 minutes of 1080p video. Making too many back-to-back videos will cause the camera to overheat and will result in shortening the life of the camera. When in video mode, instead of useing the entire 18MP sensor and then down sampling the data to the 2.1MP 1080p format, the T3i will only use the center 2MP of the chip which means that you will have an additional 3x crop factor on top of its already 1.6x crop factor. So if you're looking to do wide-angle video shots, you won't be able to do it with a DSLR like the T3.

    I would strongly recommend that you consider a better T series or, if video really isn't all that important to you, go with a used Pentax K-50 or a new K-70. Both are significantly better than any entry-level DSLR from Canon or Nikon.

    I ordered a one-step camera online and when it was delivered, I noticed a few things. One is if you were to handle the camera you can distinctly hear loose parts moving in the camera, I’m not entirely sure if it’s supposed to be like that. Two, when I inserted a film package, the camera’s film LED constantly blinked every time I would press the shutter button, basically the camera thinks there is no film package inside. Three, of the camera were to take a picture, it would make a dispensing noise however the photograph would not come out and a LED light would go out as if it did dispense it. And the only way the camera WOULD take a picture is if you were to slightly shake it as you are holding down the shutter button which it would then take up to 30 seconds for it to take a picture and then nothing would happen. I was wondering what should I do at this point because i am very angry as I spent $170 on this camera. Any suggestions?

  • Best Camera less than or equal to 100$ for recording videos in a low light environment?

    Best answer: You should get a decent used camcorder for that money. I have a Canon Legria HFR36 camcorder that I picked up used for £60 which is around $100. Had to pay another £10 or so for a decent battery as the one supplied in the kit only lasts around 15 minutes! The one I bought gives me around 90 minutes recording. ... show more

Had to pay another £10 or so for a decent battery as the one supplied in the kit only lasts around 15 minutes! The one I bought gives me around 90 minutes recording. It has built in WiFi and gives really good results in daylight and well lit interiors.
    How low light?
    In my house at night with no special lighting, just the house lights, I get reasonable quality video - much better than a Smartphone, OK for YouTube but not what you would describe as "broadcast quality".
    At night out in the street the quality falls off dramatically but it is still better than a Smartphone.

    Best answer: The mistake that many people make when attempting to photograph the Moon is that they think they need a super-long exposure. You need to realize that next to the Sun, the Moon the brightest object in the night sky. You also need to consider that you are not photographing things lit by the Moon, but the Moon itself.

    As has been said, since the moon is a bright object, your exposure will not be in seconds, but a fraction of a second instead. Use the Sunny 16 Rule where your shutter speed is equal to one over your ISO, and the aperture is at f/16. Since your lens has an aperture range of f/8~f/22, a shutter speed of 1/200th with ISO 200 speed film with an aperture of f/16 should be spot on.

    Other options that will produce equivalent exposures to 1/200th @ f/16 are:

    1/400th at f/8 (doubling the amount of light entering the camera, but for 1/2 the time) and 1/100 at f/22 (cutting the amount of light reaching the camera in half, but doubling the amount of time) Since lenses are not equally sharp across the range of apertures, I would try all aperture settings to see which image is sharpest. If your lens is like most others, you will see that the best image quality is somewhere around 1 or 2 stops from maximum aperture.

    If you have access to a camera that has a spot meter, you can use that camera's spot-metering system to get an exposure just off the Moon's surface. Remember to increase the exposure by about 1 stop since the reflectance value of the Moon's surface is brighter than middle gray, which is what cameras are calibrated to.

    Use a tripod since your focal length is sooooo long, otherwise you'll get blurry pictures due to camera shake.

  • If I set up a Nikon d5 and a d7100 next to each other both on the same Iso, and exposure and so on... would the d5 be more exposure?

    Best answer: If you took a shot with the D5 and D7100 with the same ISO, shutter speed and aperture setting, the two shots should be the same providing you used the same lens and each camera's metering system was calibrated equally. It's no secret that camera manufacturers fudge the actual ISOs of cameras to falsely give cameras a better ISO result. But given that the D7100 is not a cheap camera, this probably would not be an issue, but it wouldn't surprise me since it's Nikon.

    Not all f/stops are equal. If you used two different lenses, say a 50mm prime and an 18-55mm kit lens, there would likely be a very small difference due to the actual T-stop of each lens. While f/stops are general numbers referring to the size of the aperture, T-stops is the actual amount of light coming through the lens. So while a lens has an f/stop of f/2.8, it's actual T-stop could be a bit smaller, say f/3.

    The size of the pixels won't change the exposure. The pixel size will determine how much signal can be stored during the exposure, and how many photons strikes it during the exposure as well. The amount of charge or signal that the pixel can store is always related to the physical size of the pixel itself. Apple calls this "deeper pixels." Say you taking a shot with a very bright segment such as a white clouds. With small pixels, it's quite easy for those super-bright areas to produce such a strong signal, that it's more than the holding capacity of the pixel. If so, then those white areas would be clipped and show up as pure white without details.

    Since the larger the pixel the more photons will strike it during any given exposure, this means that larger pixels will be able to collect more light. This is massively important when you have deep shadows. Going back to the scene with the bright, white clouds, say you also have deep shadows. Small pixels would not capture as much light, and therefore those specific pixels would generate a very weak signal. The weak signal will create more noise with little to no detail depending upon just how dark the shadows are relative to the exposure. This is all how a large pixel will produce less noise and more dynamic range than smaller pixels, and why a 12MP camera like the Sony A7S ii produces far greater image quality than a 41MP Nokia phone.
