Today SWMBO asked me if I'd like a digital SLR camera as a late birthday present ( my birthday was in January but when she asked me what i wanted back then i said "dunno" lol! )


So i said is a bear Catholic ??...Does the pope crap in the woods ??? ...Ok so i might have got those two mixed up lol!

But YES!!!! ...I do want one.

I ran the one I'm getting past my daughter ( she's a professional photographer ) and she said it's a great camera for an AMATEUR. Why she put amateur in capitals I don't know lol!

So we're ​off out next week sometime to get it cheers


Oh....It's a Canon 1300d if anyone cares lol

Nice one Chris, go for it.. It's a great camera for beginners and experts alike, all Canons are quality items with tons of manual user settings, you'll really enjoy using it, but you won't be able to fit this camera in your jacket pocket, and don't forget to get yourself a carry case, a protective filter to screw in front of the lens and a rocket blower to blow any dust off the lens, I couldn't sleep at night without these 3 items. I look forward to seeing your upgraded photos  cheers  cheers  cheers

Well... There's been a bit of a development.

I changed my mind yet again...And decided that I didn't want a new camera.  I've got quite a good point and shoot and after a conversation with Clive the other night i went on line and looked up all about the settings.

I had been guilty of just using it on auto, but when you play about with the settings you can get some brilliant pictures.

So I'm going to learn how to use my camera properly..And think of something else to do with the money.

That's good news Chris, you'll save yourself a packet by not buying a new DSLR camera, that means more money saved to spend on your beloved hobby. The older cameras are still good to go if used with the lowest ISO settings, this will give the cleanest possible image quality outdoors, or indoors with a 100w desk lamp.

I like using the older point and shoot (PS) cameras of around 3.2 - 12megapixels, especially if they have 1/3 - 1/6 CCD sensors, CCD sensors give the sharpest image quality compared to CMOS sensors, CCD's are best used in good lighting conditions, whilst modern day CMOS sensor cameras give the best image quality in low light conditions. Always use a tripod and self timer for the clearest shake-free images. The most important thing is composing your shots to look more interesting, use the 'Rule Of Thirds' whenever possible  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds . And remember that having more megapixels is not that important, it's the way the picture is composed that's far more important.

Good luck point and shooters.

More money on my hobby ?? Lol you read my mind Clive.

It's got 7.1 megapixels. And loads of settings to play about with.

Although the lowest iso setting is 100....I  remember you saying to only go to 100 at most... Looks like i don't have much choice.

7.1 is great, I mean go as low as possible with the ISO setting, 100-ISO is very good, Semi Auto settings should allow you to set the ISO limit, it's normally best to set the limit to no more than 400-ISO, I always stick it on 100-ISO for on the tripod close shots of vam/MAM. I only use faster automatic shutter speeds for hand help street photography shots in all lighting conditions Wink

How many tripods are at clivvers HQ? lol!

You should get a small one that can be used at vam/MAM eye level, I have a few Gorilla pods (booty finds at £1 each) they are great! go check them out at Argos Wink

When using Gorilla Pods, use the camera's 10 second timer to allow for any vibrations on the pod to settle down for shake free images.

Chris, take the SD memory card out of the camera and stick it into the SD card slot on your laptop, it should have memory card slots built in, if not get a USB plug-in card reader from Office world/Staples, or PC World/Currys Wink

Is the SD card a standard large sized one that fits inside your camera? or is it a tiny phone sized SD memory card? There's a standard large sized adapter available that can take the tiny sized SD cards, then it should fit into your laptop. Make sure you are inserting the SD memory card into the correct slot on your computer and not the USB socket or DVD drive, also make sure you are inserting it the correct way up, or does your camera take flash memory drives? Whatever you do don't use a hammer to aid in your dilemma  lol!
