The last thing you will ever think of is mishandling that expensive gadget that you just purchased the other day. Striving to get the best DSLR backpack won’t be an option either. Honestly, there are hundreds of thousands backpacks available in today’s market and getting the best can be overwhelming. From a stylish to a simple rugged one, getting the right one for you is not a walk in the pack. How do you then go about it?

Finding the best DSLR Backpack

Here are very simple but effective criteria you can adapt for your future backpack selection.

Durability: You don’t want to keep spending on the same thing every other time. Everyone like being within their own budget, anything that come in-between is a no! The best backpack needs to be well-built to last you longer.

Value for Money: Sometimes people tend to prefer cost to quality. Cheap is expensive. It’s an obvious fact that our budgets will never be the same. But preferring quality to money is very ideal. When looking for a better backpack, concentrate more on the value for money it can give you.

Design: A good backpack should function according to its purpose. For a DSLR backpack, the design has to match all the possible functions. You might be limited if you just picked a regular backpack.

Looks: A cool looking backpack brings more life to your photography as compared to a dull one. People have different tastes when it comes to looks. Do not go against yours. This factor can be debatable, but it’s very vital.

  Brand: It’s crystal clear that some brands long last than others. What brand do you think suits you? Go for those with a good reputation.

What else should you do?

Using the above criteria alone is not enough to land you the best DSRL backpack. There is something else for you to put into consideration. That is getting enough reviews from your peers. Someone who has had experience with different backpacks can advise properly.

You do not need to get them in person. There are quite a number of them in different forums. Just get the right one. It can also be nice if you approach one in person. Another good idea is for you to check for those with five-star ratings on different selling stores online. Just be careful because some can have stars that are not genuine.

The best DSLR backpack should perfectly fit its purpose

If a backpack doesn’t meet your expectations, then it’s not best for you. What do you intend to do with your DSRL backpack? If you’re a professional photographer, you may be interested in a backpack that has something more to offer.

It should provide numerous access points for faster insertion and removal of camera gear. It should provide full comfort for support while on the move. Is the backpack an all-weather one? Can you include your laptop and smartphone somewhere in the bag? Just a few necessary things to put into consideration.

Primes and Zooms: Best Lenses for Sony a6000! http://emergingcorruption.com/primes-and-zooms-best-lenses-for-sony-a6000/ Mon, 09 Oct 2017 16:58:48 +0000 http://emergingcorruption.com/?p=116 Read More

The Sony a6000 camera model is currently at the top of the range of the brand’s list of APS-C mirrorless cameras. Even though it’s built-in 1.44 M-dot OLED EVF is often viewed as a downgrade of the 3.36 M-dot unit from the NEX-6, this new model provides a number of benefits over the 16-MP predecessor, including the very same 24-MP CMOS, and an upgraded hybrid AF system that offers a better coverage.

The Sony a6000 also offers continuous shooting up to 11fps, with a tilting 3-inch rear LCD, and further improvements in video capturing. Other enhancements also include the use of zebra-pattern exposure warning, together with uncompressed 1080i/p AVCHD right at 24/50/60 fps using an HDMI output mode.

However, it is the sensor performance that has captured the attention of a lot of photographers, along with how the expansion included with the dedicated on-chip AF phase detection pixels which impact image performance.

Why Opt for the Sony a6000?

With this revolution on digital mirrorless cameras, a lot of photographers, both novice and experts, are shying away from their heavy and bulky DSLR cameras. One of the primary benefits that can be expected from the Sony a6000 is its portability. In fact, you can cut your camera bag weight in half. Even though this may not actually be a selling point for some photographers, for those who love to capture adventure and travel photography, this is a huge deal.

The Sony a6000 comes with a weight of 12.13 oz. This includes both the SD card and battery. It can also fit easily in the palm of your hand. As a matter of fact, its portability is one of the reasons why it is well-loved by many. All in all, its build quality is solidly-built. If you are already familiar with other APS-C mirrorless camera from Sony, using this camera is quite easy.

Its viewfinder system is electronic, which is quite a good change in pace coming from a standard DSLR using an optical viewfinder. The main difference is that when using an optical viewfinder, you can see what your eye really sees, thus helping in situations such as low-light condition. However, the scene that you may be seeing is really what your camera can capture.

On the other hand, if you have a digital viewfinder, you see what the sensors of your camera will also capture. All you have to do is to change your settings to lighten or darken your scene, and it will be able to reflect in what you see using the viewfinder. Even though you may have to adjust to this difference, it is quite useful in your photography since you already know accurately how your images will be exposed for a certain photo.

The only drawback that you can expect is that since you are viewing a digital version of the scene, there might be a little bit of delay in what you are actually seeing using the viewfinder in order to see what is happening in actuality. If this is something that you did not know, you might end up missing the perfect moment while the subjects are in motion.

Now that we have already determined the capacity of the a6000 model, let us now look into the lenses that make it even perform better. After all, your camera will only work its best given the right lens that go with it.

  • Sony 70-200mm f4 Telephoto

If you are looking for a top of the line option in optical quality with an amazing range, great image stabilization, fantastic build quality, this lens is the option to go. It boasts steady-shot, superior contrast, moisture and dust resistance, durability, and color. Quite amazingly, it can also be strapped into your smaller a6000.

Of course, you also have to anticipate some drawbacks with this lens. Among them includes being heavier, with a bit too sensitive sliders. However, aside from this, everything else is good. It is highly suitable for still and auto mode photo shots.

  • Sony 90mm f2.8 Macro

  • Sony 10-18mm f4 wide-angle

With a range that covers extremely wide to really wide, this lens is an amazing option for run-and-gun movie making, as well as in capturing landscapes. It offers amazing quality of build, while still being lightweight. A lot of photographers really appreciate its built-in stabilization, as well as the detail that the images produce.

One minor drawback that you have to expect, however, is that it is open all the way at f4, which means that the edges and corners are quite soft. With this said, some users also love because of the dreamy feel that it produces. At f5.6, images produced is really sharp. Photographers also love this lens for video making, as well as offering high quality stills. All in all, it’s an amazing lens to add to your photographer’s arsenal.

  • Sony 35mm f1.8 Prime Lens

This prime lens is the answer to Canon’s nifty-fifty. It offers amazing mage quality, at a very reasonable price. At the same time, its 35mm lens for an offering comes with an APC-C sized sensor, which is equivalent to a 50mm lens for a full frame camera. Aside from its technical specs, this lens also offers amazing build quality, superbly clear images, and a beautiful bokeh.

Users love its image stabilization, while enjoying that ‘less is more’ feeling compared to that with Sony 50mm. It is an amazing lens at an amazing price which can capture great videos and better still shots.

  • Rokinon 12mm f2

The Sony a6000 camera also accommodates non-Sony lenses. One such example is the Rokinon 12mm f2 lens. This is the option to go if you are looking to capture wide-angle shots. However, just like manual lenses, this lens is well praised for offering a super wide-angle capture for shots, ideal for real estate and landscape photography.

Due to the width that it offers, it is very easy to set to having an infinite focus, as well as a high aperture, while getting those crisp shots without having to worry about the focus itself. It also produces great quality of shots, and is also well-loved for its optics and colors. You may just have to note, however, that the aperture ring is quite small, and you also need a manual focus. However, once you get to familiarize the trick behind it, you’re good to go.

  • Sony 55-210mm f4.5-6.3

This lens from Sony boasts of its optical steady shot, a lightweight, an amazing zoom range, making it a well recommended zoom lens. Most photographers who loved it love the fact that it offers a silent and internal focusing, as well as its smooth and responsive adjustment rings. As a bonus, it is not really as heavy as it looks. If you are the type of photography who loves capturing nature or sports photography, this is an amazing deal for you, thanks to its solid feature set.

  • Sigma 30mm f1.4

Among the features that this lens offer includes being sharp, fast, and with that wide open and dreamy appeal. If you are looking for an alternative to Sony lenses, this is a good choice for you. Even though you may have to expect some chromatic aberration, all other aspects and features of this lens are wonderful. For example, it comes with a huge focus ring, which is very useful for both videography and portrait use. Still, you may have to expect some minor drawbacks, including a bit of chromatic aberration and a lack of image stabilization. Aside from this, this is an amazing piece of lens for your money.

  • Sony 20mm f2.8

The Sony 20mm f2.8 is a pancake lens which is both practical and small. Despite its size, it offers amazing value and rapid autofocus. It also easily attaches to the Sony a6000 camera, affecting its form barely. The images captured are also praised for its sharp contrast and great quality. It may not be as sharp as other lenses that are wide open, but its optical quality is extremely solid. If you are the type of photographer who would like to see a nice and wide lens, this is an amazing choice to consider.

  • Sony 50mm f1.8

This ‘nifty-fifty’ works similar to the 72mm on an APS-C size sensor. However, if it is fine with you to step up to its telephoto focal length, this camera lens comes with amazing image stabilization and value. As a bonus, it is also lightweight and compact. Photographers also love its capacity to capture beautiful portraits and focusing. Even though it may not be pristine optically just like the 35mm, this can be a really comparable selection if you expect more reach.

  • Sony 16mm f2.8

This pancake lens from Sony offers amazing wide-angle shots even in a tiny form. It has amazingly fast focus, lightweight and compact size, while allowing for a number of different attachments. Photographers love its rapid autofocus and optics. At an aperture of f2.8, the corners are quite soft, but this is something that you can expect coming from a lens with a reasonable price like this. Overall, it is portable and sharp.

  • Sony 16-70 f/4 E

Another lens that made it to this list is the Sony 16-70 f/4 E. It is often described as an amazing walk around and everyday lens. It is really sharp, especially in the center, and also really sharp right in the corners. Due to its effective mm range on the a6000 camera, it can also work in many situations. It offers a beautiful and solid bokeh at f/4, even though it may not be able to compete with that of an f/1.8 lens. You might also have to expect that this lens is quite expensive, but still worth your investment.

Just like other mirrorless cameras recently released by Sony, the a6000 offers an articulating LCD screen. Even though this might appear as non-impressive at first, reality dictates that it offers some features that makes it useful, especially when you are capturing images from really low vantage points. This includes capturing with your camera very close to the ground. Rather than laying down in the ground dirt using a tripod, or manually holding it using your hand, you can easily tilt the screen instead so that you can directly look down from above, then frame your shot, and capture the shot.

A trade off that you can expect is that since your LCD is separated from the body of the camera, it becomes more susceptible to conditions such as cold weather since cold air may easily get behind it. As you work in extreme environments, the LCD may start to freeze after half an hour of continuous use. But you can easily just go to a place where you can warm it out, and continue using it again.

With the Sony a6000, while you can choose lenses that are less than $500, you will still be able to expect needing lenses that you need to add to the kit. The lens list that are mentioned above are among the favorite and most recommended lenses by photographers who found them matching and compatible with the Sony a6000. Keep in mind, however, that even though Sony comes with an E mount for its APS-C bodies, as well as an EF mount for those Full Frame mirrorless camera options, both can be interchanged.

A lot of people who are looking to lose weight must deal with certain hurdles. Everyone has times when it’s difficult to remain motivated and centered on your objectives. Occasionally it isn’t enough to just go on a diet; there may be other changes you should make. Whatever type of diet you’re on, the following three suggestions will make it easier to lose weight and keep it off.

Everybody knows that it’s vital to exercise as well as watch your diet. Nonetheless, the mistake that individuals usually make is to only do aerobic type workouts. You are going to get much quicker results if you also do exercises that build strength and muscle tone. The reason this is extremely important is that any time you work your muscles, your metabolism is enhanced. Even when you’re done exercising, your body burns more calories than it did before. It doesn’t matter if you do push-ups, pull-ups or lift weights, provided that you’re building strength. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also do aerobics, but you must find a good balance in your workouts. This can help you reach your weight loss objectives a lot quicker.

You not only must keep an eye on calories from food, but also from refreshments. This becomes an issue if you drink such beverages daily and don’t even count the calories from them. Coffee drinks like lattes could also be very high in calories due to sweeteners and milk. In such instances, it’s not the occasional treat that hurts you but doing this each day.

Something you can do to make weight loss easier is to get some additional sleep nightly. Whenever you do not get enough sleep, it inhibits the way your metabolism functions. There is a proven link between being obese and not getting enough sleep. Additionally there is a tendency to take in empty calories for energy if you are tired. This can be a candy bar, potato chips or soda, none of which are great for you. Getting more sleep will make you feel more alert as well as help your body burn calories more efficiently.

There’s more to shedding weight than simply going on a diet. If you apply the tips we’ve shared here you will discover dieting less frustrating. Keep in mind that shedding weight isn’t just about what you do and don’t eat. Additionally, it has to do with your workout habits, stress levels and how much sleep you get. Since all you do has an effect on your body and metabolism, your overall lifestyle comes into play.

Things You Need to Know About Prime Lenses! http://emergingcorruption.com/things-you-need-to-know-about-prime-lenses/ Tue, 26 Sep 2017 12:59:38 +0000 http://emergingcorruption.com/?p=75 When it comes to lenses, zoom lenses, in general, are unquestionably great, especially when talking about versatility and convenience. It is known to deliver a wide range of focal lengths in just a flick of a wrist. Still, they demand a huge amount of compromise when it comes to outright image quality. However, when dealing with complex arrangements of bigger groups of lens elements you need to adjust back and forth just to enable zoom. Sadly, this makes the purity of the optical features suffer.

For example, sharpness is usually the first one that suffers. At the same time, pin-cushion and barrel distortions usually appear at the telephoto and wide-angle lens of the zoom range. At the same time, you may also be able to expect a significant increase in the so-called chromatic aberration, as well as vignetting. The latter is usually seen when using large apertures at a wide-angle end. For this reason, it is a generally accepted fact that zoom lenses are usually prone to flare and ghosting.

All of these are not a problem with high-quality prime lenses. Vignettign and distortion are less noticeable, while sharpness can also be expected to be excellent. This means that you can easily optimize the high-resolution sensors that are fitted to the modern models of digital cameras.

Transforming Your Photography Experience

Another extra feature offered by prime lenses is that they are generally faster. This only means that they have a bigger maximum aperture, allowing for faster shutter speeds. These faster lenses are not just for preventing camera shaking, or freezing the action in most low-light conditions.

Another huge benefit that you can expect is that you can also get a tighter depth-of-field, allowing you to easily isolate the main subject in a shot and simply blurring the background. This is a well-recognized trick in portrait photography, particularly when the background is a bit cluttered and can serve as a distraction.

It may turn out to be quite challenging to use large apertures in sunny and bright conditions. However, you can easily get around with this by using a Neutral Density (ND) filter. Using variable NDs are an amazing option as you shoot video, and would like to achieve that shallow, cinematic depth-of-field which everybody has been talking about.

A very important factor that you need to consider as you purchase your Canon prime lenses is the focal length that you need to go for. Back then, a 50mm prime lens was often considered as “standard”. The reason behind this is because you can expect similar perspective when viewing a scene using your own eyes, without shrinking using a wide-angle lens, or magnifying using a telephoto lens.

With the obviously wide range of options on sizes that are currently available, choosing the best one can be quite challenging. However, by identifying first the purpose of use on your camera and the output that you would like to achieve, you will be able to choose the best one for your DSLR.

Things to consider while choosing the best canon cameras for portraits photography http://emergingcorruption.com/things-to-consider-while-choosing-the-best-canon-cameras-for-portraits-photography/ Mon, 25 Sep 2017 11:03:45 +0000 http://emergingcorruption.com/?p=72 Portrait photography is considered to be one of the most popular forms of photography. In this type of photography, the prime focus is given on the face of the person or on groups of persons. To capture great quality portraits one need to have experience and right device. In the absence of these prerequisites, it is impossible to capture beautiful images. Now a question pops up in your mind that what are things to keep in mind while purchasing a camera for portrait photography and which is the best camera for portrait photography? Well this article is written to solve all the queries which are arising in your mind.

Following are the things which need to be considered which choosing the best canon cameras for portraits photography:-

  • The size of the sensor

This is an essential thing which you should greatly consider while purchasing a camera. The emphasis is given on the sensor size because the bigger sensors will help you to record more images directly into your memory card through the view finder. Therefore, the bigger sensor will let you store higher information and bequeaths clearer pictures.

Thus, while buying a camera for portrait photography one should not settle down for small size sensor. Always purchase a camera with large sensor sizes such as 35 mm, 45mm or bigger than this.

  • Focal length

In portrait photography, the focal length matters the most. Therefore, you should select a camera for portrait photography which does have a focal length between 35mm to 200 mm. Apparently the focal length depends on numerous factors such as a number of people present in the frame, the environment, light and the distance. Thus, while purchasing a camera for portrait photography you should keep in mind this point as well.

  • Number of lenses

If you are planning to purchase a camera for portrait photography, then purchase several lenses because a single lens would not serve your purpose. Suppose if you want to zoom, then you require several lenses to do the job. Therefore, carry more than one lens along with you because it will come handy.

But, your willingness to come up with a good film won’t make you tired and quit. So, the best thing that you must do is to find a way to make your video shooting a little bit easier and relax.

When you are shooting a video in public, you may encounter different settings. What if it your venue is too crowded? It won’t be that easy to shoot your subject. If your only choice is to hold and carry your camera as you shoot, then in such setup, you will find it difficult to focus.

Now, if you will use a mounted camera with the right lens, then focusing on your subject will be easier. Using a mounted camera is also a great advantage when you are in the crowd because you can worry less shooting a shaky video.

Canon has always been a great manufacturer because they think about the ease and convenience of the videographers, too. That is why we have the best canon lenses for video that you can use with your mounted cameras while video shooting.

Essential Considerations for mounted cameras and lenses for video

You might find it confusing to choose one among the Canon lenses to use with your mounted cameras. So, we have here essential factors for you to consider.

Prime vs Zoom

The focal length of a prime lens is fixed with a wider aperture. It is sharp, speedy and lighter compared to a zoom lens. A prime lens is great that is why many professional videographers use it. On the other hand, a zoom lens is also an option because of its flexibility. In fact, a zoom lens weighs heavier, but it is known for its versatility.

Focal Length

When shooting a video, what focal length do you prefer? Are you going to shoot a video for traveling? In that case, you need 35mm or a wider focal length. If you are shooting wildlife scenes, then you better get a 70-200mm lens. For various types of videography, you may go for a focal length at mid-range, such as 24-70mm.

Camera Type

Most lenses work on full frame camera, an APS-C camera or both. But, you have to make sure that your camera and your lens are compatible. An APS-C camera has a crop factor, so the focal length is longer.

Aperture

How wide does a lens can open? That is measured through an aperture. This will affect the amount of light entering the camera. If you have a wider aperture, then you can shoot your video in a darker setting. The aperture is usually in fraction. The number below, refers to a larger aperture. So, if you wish to shoot a video in a blurry background or with a dim light, then you must have a wider aperture. You must also check your t-stops because this refers to the light getting to your sensor.

Depth of Field

The DoF or Depth of Field refers to the part of the subject in focus. Changing your DoF is a good way of practicing your videography skills. Your focal length also allows you to control your DoF.

Stabilization

THE INFAMOUS MAN BEHIND THE BEST DSLR STABILIZER! http://emergingcorruption.com/the-infamous-man-behind-the-best-dslr-stabilizer/ Sat, 09 Sep 2017 21:26:08 +0000 http://emergingcorruption.com/?p=61 Garrett Brown is the man whose name is synonymous to the creation of the best DSLR stabilizers. He was born in 1942, April 6, an indigene of Long Branch, New Jersey, United States. The three times Oscar winner is best known as the inventor of the Steadicam, which was the first of his many more inventions in the film industry. This American cinematographer was working on the popular Sesame Street set in 1969 when he was hit with an idea that would change his life and the way film was made forever. Working at making commercials and films for Sesame Street in Philadelphia, and exhausted with the bulky camera dolly, he wanted to walk freely while creating great images, he invented the Steadicam in 1975 which has today caused a revolution in the world of Filmography.

The Steadicam, he began to use for his own personal commercials and various projects before he unveiled to the public. One of which was the viral video in 1974 of his wife running around in the park and going up and down the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum. A second video was of his friend swimming the length of a swimming pool. These video termed ‘’impossible shots’’ were seen by important film producers and then he shot the first professional film, Bound for Glory by Hal Ashby, Rocky by John G. Avildsen, The shinning by Stanley Kubrick and then Return of the Jedi by Richard Marquand and many more since then have enjoyed the ease of filming provided by the Steadicam.

Brown has since retired from shooting in 2004; he is a member of the American Society of Cinematographers of which he received a President’s Award in 2001, also a member of the Directors Guild of America, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He won his first Academy Award in 1978, Technical Achievement Award in 1999 and another Academy Award for Science and Engineering in 2006. For his invention of the Steadicam, he was awarded an Emmy by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. His son Jonathan Brown is still working in his father’s steps as a professional cinematography as well.

 

Garrett Brown holds 50 patents for camera devices, he still lives and works in Philadelphia and gives lectures and classes on the operation of the Steadicam. He also holds his seminar called ‘’The Moving Camera” which has been shown at film festivals and film schools, one worthy of mention is the Media Lab at MIT and all around the world. His 40 plus years old invention is still current and evolving day by day, making hard to imagine what filming was like before the invention. He also lays claim to inventing the SkyCam used in sporting events across the world including football games, the MobyCam specifically for underwater activities like swimming, the DiveCam, also underwater but designed for divers and the Steadicam Merlin for camcorders, GoCam, an ultra light high speed camera tracking system.
