The 18-55mm kit lens isn't as bad as some people would have it...(... from taking pictures using this lens thus far, this is what I can conclude from my experience of it)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Thursday, April 25, 2013, In : tips 
People complain about the lens distortion at the widest viewing point on the Sony E-mount 18-55mm lens. But these are the types of people who usually don't know how to use a lens that has been designed to incorporate the broadest range of shooting styles. At 18mm the SEL 18-55mm does exhibit some slight image curvature,(obviously nowhere as much as an actual fish eye lens) however for the types of pictures that many people want to take, it often helps create more of a dramatic visual effect w...

How to get RAW image capture features on a compact camera? (...buy a powershot SX130)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, In : Camera's 
The powershot SX130 already gets part way their to a sort of D-SLR feel but in compact none interchangeable lens form. Pixel count isn't everything, especially when it comes to image quality, and even at 12 megapixels the SX130 still produces excellent quality images. But aside from the large D-SLR like LCD screen and sort of similar control layout (bar a few buttons and dials) there was just something about it that felt a little incomplete in not having RAW image capture capability. That was...

Ricoh 16 megapixel APS-C but smaller and none modular...(...pocketably smaller)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, In : Camera's 
It only seemed appropriate to keep the run of stuff on snapper gear going, at least the stuff that caught my interest, and having briefly mentioned Ricoh recently it looks like they've decided to extend their APS-C camera range beyond their modular "chop 'n' change" parts of their GXR series that are available for the general consumers side to optionally throw money at amidst all the other competition. They've now made a none modular stand alone APS-C sensor camera for people to optionally bu...

Canon powershot SX150 IS...(...hands on quick review and general impressions)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, In : Camera's 
Its a pocket-able (as in it actually fits in your pocket) JPG only camera with 12x optical zoom. Ideal as a backup camera for people who have DSLR and want to take snaps where a DSLR or MSC might be a little impractical (in JPG). The control layout is roughly the same as on a DLSR too. What do I reckon? [...what I reckon]

Tru digital x0.45 58mm thread wide angle multiplier lens

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, In : lenses 
wide camera angles are great. It basically means you can fit more in the picture/frame without having to physically move, which is ideal if you're in a confined space or in a situation where you're not able to move any further backward in order to fit more in the picture frame. But for all those who are shooting in wide open spaces (if not lacking the will from sheer laziness) lacking the common sense, you can simply just move back a few metres and crop the top and bottom of the image down a ...

I was reading a number of user responses on various sites and blogs, from what I gather there seemed to be a little confusion about what the "L" means on canon lenses and what the difference between a prime and zoom lens is...

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, April 8, 2013, In : tips 
L is a lens grading created by Canon and are specific to canon lenses. Some people reckon the "L" denotes "luxury" (more likely correct) but I'm personally partly more inclined to go with "Low dispersion" for the sake of diplomacy, but then again if that were entirely true the entire time L lenses have existed why did they not call them LD lenses to begin with? It's like someone just makes this stuff up as they go along whilst deciding to say it mean "Low dispersion" in order to sound like it...
