Maximizing the LCD Light Camera Without Worry in Battery Wasting

Using a digital camera would not have been released by the LCD. LCD is very important to see the results of our photo capture. Earlier types of pocket cameras, the LCD can double as a preview and review our photo. But technological developments create almost any type of camera like a DSLR can use the LCD as a live viewfinder, meaning we can use the LCD as a preview and review our photo.

It is a fact that using the LCD will greatly affect the strength of battery used in our digital cameras. Therefore a lot of which suggested to reduce the use of the LCD if we want to save our battery consumption, although many photographers who still use the LCD without the worry of depleted batteries because they already provide battery backup sufficient for needs.

Currently, there is a technology that diperkenalakan by Sony Corporation. LCD technology is more efficient consumption batterynya but the display screen becomes brighter, Sony Corp. introduced a LCD screen for 3inchi that uses new technology called "WhiteMagic". First time in the world combining a white pixel LCD on the type of standard LCD (standard RGB) became WRGB = White Red Green Blue, so the results from the looks to be super bright. This new technology has been designed by Sony that the best quality picture is not lost because of an algorithm developed by Sony to make the images are processed first in order to maintain its quality despite the addition of white pixels. In addition to the lighter color and power consumption are more lace, this also increases the LCD MagicWhite angels around 160 degrees view of the left-right or from top-down (horizontal and vertical).

9 Tips for Beginner Photographers

Some time ago I had read an interesting article written by Darren Rowse for digital-photography-school.com. The article is very useful especially for beginner photographers like me.

As Darren said, as a new photographer, these are some of the ideas that have helped get us going. In this article I tried to reduce some aspects because some of them have same ideas.

  1. Don’t go crazy buying the most expensive equipment right away. It is possible to get good photographs with a cheap way. Darren advised to view the photos on Flickr or Photobucket. There are a variety of interesting photos. The photographs are not all taken up with an expensive camera. For more details, adjust your camera to the photo you want. Not all expensive cameras can do as our desire.

  2. Consider a tripod. On the other hand, an inexpensive tripod is worth getting, especially if you have shaky hands like mine. When I got a tripod, my satisfaction with my shots skyrocketed. For even more stability, use your camera’s timer function with a tripod (read our introduction to tripods)

  3. Keep your camera with you all the time. Photo ops often come when you least expect it. If you can keep your equipment relatively simple – just a small camera bag and a tripod – you might be able to take advantage of some of those unexpected opportunities. Or, if your phone has a camera, use it to take “notes” on scenes you’d like to return to with your regular camera. Try to photograph something every day. If you can’t do that, make sure you take time to practice regularly, so you don’t forget what you’ve learned.

  4. Make a list of shots you’d like to get. For those times you can’t carry your camera around, keep a small notebook to jot down places you’d like to come back and photograph. Make sure to note any important details, like the lighting, so you can come back at the same time of day or when the weather’s right. If you don’t want to carry a notebook, send yourself an email using your cell phone with Jott.com.

  5. Don’t overlook mundane subjects for photography. You might not see anything interesting to photograph in your living room or your backyard, but try looking at familiar surroundings with fresh eyes. You might catch an interesting trick of the light or find some unexpected wildflowers in your yard. Often a simple subject makes the best shot.

  6. Enjoy the learning process. The best part of having a hobby like photography is never running out of things to learn. Inspiration is all around you. Look at everything with the eyes of a photographer and you’ll see opportunities you never noticed before.

  7. Take advantage of free resources to learn. Browse through Flickr or websites like the Digital Photography School Forum for inspiration and tips. Also, your local library probably has a wealth of books on all types of photography. If you’re interested in learning about post-processing, give free software like the GIMP a try.

  8. Learn the basic rules. The amount of information about photography online can be overwhelming. Start with a few articles on composition. Be open to what more experienced photographers have to say about technique. You have to know the rules before you can break them.

  9. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Your point and shoot may be more flexible and powerful than you know. Read the manual for help deciphering all those little symbols. As you explore, try shooting your subjects with multiple settings to learn what effects you like. When you’re looking at your photos on a computer, you can check the EXIF data (usually in the file’s properties) to recall the settings you used. If you’re using a digital camera, the cost of errors is free. Go crazy – you might end up with something you like. You’ll certainly learn a lot in the process.
