5 lesser known facts about buying a DSLR

If you are an aspiring photographer and looking to buy a new DSLR, then your recent browsing history must be finding itself clogged with camera reviews and YouTube links. The mere thought of maneuvering those complex controls and handling large lenses turns out to be enticing for your mind. Probably as you read this post, you must have already finalized your choice of gear. But, there is a lot more than meets the eye. A close look at the following section might help you save some precious bucks.

  1. Old is as good as new –

Keep aside your fears of purchasing used cameras. DSLRs are completely different. If you think that a used Nikon d5100 is of no use; then open your ears, guys. “A camera’s performance is not affected by the amount of scratches on its body!!! It solely depends on the quality of its sensor.” If a DSLR has its sensor intact, then it is good to go.

The same accounts for lenses as well. Never discard a lens for scratches or fungus. Scratches do not affect the quality of your frame and fungus is just a byproduct of environmental effects.

  1. Lens matters –

By now, your brain is surely fighting an internal riot between the Nikons, Canons, and Sonys on the choice of model. Will it be a Nikon or a Canon; mirror or mirror less? Well, stop it now!!! It’s not the body, but the lens that matters.

In simple terms, the choice of glass will define the quality you receive. Don’t believe this? Ditch that kit lens for a prime and start seeing marked difference in your frame qualities. Go for the 35mm or 50mm prime for that matter. Let your eyes decide the rest.

  1. Know the body –

Does your DSLR body have an inbuilt auto focus motor? A question to answer before buying a lens. You may be confused by two similar lenses having substantial price differences. Well, the answer lies in the auto focus motor.

For instance: let’s take up the 50mm Prime 1.8G and 1.8D. Bodies with an inbuilt motor can opt for a 1.8D, where “D” signifies a manual lens. On the other hand, cameras without focusing motor must go for “G” variants.

  1. Cropped sensors for you –

If this sounds new to you, then have a read. On one side there are these full frame bodies. That means, for a focal length of 50mm, you will receive an output of 50mm. But with cameras having a 1.6x crop factor, a 50mm focal length will render you around 85mm as the actual zoom value.

  1. Price factor –

Save some handsome bucks with an entry level body rather than a full frame DSLR. With the correct choice of lens (new or used), your entry level camera will provide you some astounding shots.

“The quality of a photo does not depend on the camera but the eyes of a photographer.” – Steve McCurry.

So, head on!!! Get hold of that perfect gear today. Some breath-taking frames await your presence!!!
