Photo Tips #2 : Which Camera? (Part 2)

In the first part of this series I talked about Compact Cameras, and came to the conclusion that you should probably have one – at least as a second camera for keeping with you all the time. Now it’s time to look at a couple of categories which step it up a bit – the Superzoom and the new Micro Four Thirds format.

Introducing the Photo Tips Series

People often ask me about photography related things, so I thought I’d write some stuff down! My new Photo Tips series on this blog will start off with basics like choosing a camera and then explain common terms like depth of field, exposure, ISO, and so on. Finally I hope to point out some things that I’ve found useful over the years and maybe cover some gadget and accessory reviews. Expect a new post every few days, and leave a comment if you find anything useful, or want to ask a question. Enjoy!

I will use terms you may not be familiar with in the descriptions, these will be explained in later articles so stay tuned!

I’ve Done Made Some Photos

I’ve been taking more photos recently, and I think getting better at doing so. One thing I’ve always hated is how they were presented online. I didn’t want to use a third party service like Flickr, because I wanted more control over the site, but I also disliked the software I was using (Gallery). It’s not that it’s bad, but it’s obsessed with features like tagging, search, comments, ratings, etc etc – and as a result the layouts tended to be over complex with the photo itself seeming like an afterthought.
