Many friends of mine always used to ask me, which camera is best and the 2nd surprising question is asked that “I need a camera which can capture the professional photographs like a pro photographer” Money hardly matters to me, I do not mind spending any amount on buying a DSLR camera. But my camera must capture the stunning photographs. Sometimes it is so hard to make them understand photography. These people are well settled in their profession or business, they are hobbyist photographer, They do not want to educate themself about photography but they demand good camera which can capture like a pro photographer.
Here, I am writing about the article about the most common tool that is called a photography camera. Also, I would like to mention that DSLRs camera is capable of doing some action and not capable of doing which actions. So that one can understand the limits of the camera and the photographer’s capabilities.
Let’s discuss the important action of the camera and Its limits.
- Any pro-level camera needs one human to handle the entire camera and its all the techniques, setting, features etc. Any camera is useless if no human handles it efficiently.
- No camera focus itself the subject and shoot
- No camera can set its setting in all the different weather situation to shoot even in the low light situation.
- No camera can compose the shot
- Any brand, any make, any latest camera requires one trained, creative photography eye to shoot.
- No camera can maintain itself for long life duration.
In short, there is a photographer behind every camera to shoot the stunning shot. A photographer understands the storyline, subject, compose the shot, add interesting content etc. Also, understand the client’s requirement and deliver the same result’s photographs. If you discard human from the camera than It is just a camera which is will be sitting quietly in your wardrobe. Which will not be having any use.
Please remove this thought from your mind-set that high-end pro DSLRs capture the stunning photographs. It is a photographer who captures the stunning shot based on his photography education, practical experiences and his hardcore exposure to his passion. There are few friends of mine who recently bought a very expensive camera and never shot even for one day because of the lack of photography knowledge. Soon they will put it in that store from where this camera is not visible to anyone. Which are absolutely wastage of money and disrespectful of the camera.
One must change his perception from the camera to photography knowledge. Because behind every machine only human knowledge works for better results. Once you are having adequate knowledge of photography then handling any cheap to the expensive camera will be quite easy and fun and then probably you can capture like pro-photographer.
Keep experimenting, Have wonderful and happy photography life to you all.
