If you’ve nothing more than kit lens then it becomes indispensable for you to learn to take good quality pictures with it. Following are some ways to maximize the potential of your kit lens.

Canon & Nikon have created two groups in the DSLR world with each group trying to outwit each other. Its an open truth that a good photograph doesn’t needs a particular Canon or Nikon camera to make. It requires a creative vision & technical knowledge on part of the photographer. Yet people battle on noise performance, lens sharpness between the two brands. But do they know how futile it is?
Video Recording is the new in-thing in DSLR cameras. The feature has found many takers & its capable of producing some fantastic footage. If you’re one of the enthusiast film-maker who bought/will buy DSLR primarily for video recording then better know what else you’ll require to produce a captivating video apart from camera.
A DSLR camera’s most important feature is its ability to put on a variety of lens ranging from extreme wideangle to extreme telephoto. The lens requirement depends on what the photographer wishes to shoot but there is one lens which I would say is a MUST for every photographer. The lens I’m talking about is none other than the 50mm prime a.k.a nifty fifty. The reasons I love the 50mm prime lens are as follows,
Advertising & Promotion play an vital role in success of any product or service. It can make or break the deal in front of the customer. In the field of photography, there is cut-throat competition not only at product level but also when it comes to advertising & promotion.
The “I am Photokina” initiative at Photokina 2011 was a great promotional event by one of the big giant, Nikon. They had a huge screen setup to display the photographs of people who got clicked at Nikon booth at the recent Photokina event.

Enter the Canon 60D Training Video. This is a promotional video for the Canon 60D DSLR camera launched by the company recently. The video showcase the capability of the camera & briefs on its(Canon 60D) features with real world demonstrations. The video also features immaculate cinematography & hits the nail when it comes to narration. I liked this video a lot & have never seen such a promotional video before. It is now pushing me to get the Canon 60D which earlier was nowhere in my shopping list. Such an impact means the video has done its job of creating a buying desire amongst its prospective customers. Will I buy the Canon 60D? Time will tell but for now watch this exciting Canon 60D promotional video.
P.S – I’m NOT being paid or rewarded by Canon in anyway to publish this post. The Canon 60D is indeed a worthy camera but purchasing it won’t guarantee that you get photos/videos as shown in promotional videos. The showcased photos/videos are processed extensively on computer before they were put into the promotional video. Do note this.
