cam­era tech­niques for all

I’m get­ting in­creas­ingly frus­trated with your mag­a­zine. As a new reader, I notice that you hardly ever men­tion low-end be­gin­ner cam­eras. I’m the proud owner of an EOS 1300D, which I con­sider to be a great starter cam­era. It would be nice if you recog­nised that there are many begin­ners. As a pen­sioner, I’m lim­ited to the cost of equip­ment. Richard Bance, Maid­stone We’d say 95% of the Canon cam­era tech­niques we fea­ture will still be rel­e­vant to you, re­gard­less of whether you have a Canon 1300D or a top-pro 1D Mk II. You can still set ex­po­sure, white bal­ance and fo­cus modes, shoot in Man­ual and use ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion; and you can use any lens your bud­get can man­age. Your 1300D still has 18Mp, and it doesn’t mat­ter that it has fewer AF points or a slower fps rate com­pared to other DSLRS. The specs don’t mat­ter if you fol­low our tech­niques and use the right set­ting on your cam­era for the right type of shot. So don’t be dis­heart­ened if we don’t men­tion your cam­era. You can repli­cate many of the tips, and we hope we can con­tinue to in­spire you.

Although we fea­ture high­erend cam­eras, lots of skills in the mag are rel­e­vant to all
