The camera is a very amazing invention and I am in awe by its many functions even if it is just small and handy. Through the years, cameras have evolved from the simplest model and becoming complex as years pass by. I remember having a camera with a film and I needed to always a developing store so I can have the photos printed. I also remember having a heavy camera then I switched to a small and lighter version of it. As I grow older, digital cameras were invented and DSLR cameras became popular. The continuous innovation and evolution of cameras became the reason why a lot of people became inclined with photography. A lot of people would want to become professional photographers since they are becoming in demand of society as well. Because of my interest in cameras, I became a professional photographer and if you also want to become one, I will share with you some knowledge about the features of DSLR cameras that be useful for you in the future. Knowing this can actually make you know what to look for if you compare cameras in the market.
Aperture priority, shutter priority, and manual mode
These three features are different shooting modes available on DSLR cameras and it is important to know when you need to use these modes. With the aperture priority mode, you get to adjust the aperture and that means you can make the background elements to become very clear compared to regular cameras and you can always make it blurry, too. So, you can actually adjust it depending on what you want to achieve. For the shutter priority mode, it is used to adjust the shutter speed depending on the aperture you set as well. If you choose a faster shutter speed, that can actually freeze motion. If you choose a slower shutter speed, it will increase the amount of motion in a blur in your images. This is what they do if you take picture of running horses or flocks of birds flying close to you.
Spectrum and single point shooting modes
These two modes are used in the autofocus system of the camera. If you have experienced using a DSLR camera and you tried to focus it on your subject, you might have seen different indicators to help you focus the lens. These indicators are the one used for the spectrum mode. This can be deactivated if you do not like to see different indicators that can be bothering sometimes. You can choose the single point shooting mode where there is just one point in your lens that will be your basis when you are trying to focus your camera. Most photographers choose this mode since it is less annoying.
