Sorry :/ more like while using his 50mm f1.8 lens at maximum aperture. Didn't type that in a more concious state of mind.Originally Posted by kei1309
Yeah I understand. I was making a comparison to handphone cameras and compacts. With the bokeh from a DSLR system and a lens with a wide aperture, depending on the number of aperture blades giving better bokeh.Originally Posted by kei1309
Wah so that means im shooting assignments on handphone camera equivalents? Wow i must be damn zai.Originally Posted by avsquare
While i am in the agreement that output is all that it counts, a keen beginner will soon explore and acquire the know hows various auto modes and manual settings. As compared to someone who has all the tools in front of him but never chooses to go the further distance but rely only on P mode, I think we know the former has much more options at hand to handle new and different situations such as star trails, super long exposures etc.
Yes many seasoned folks here use P mode as well and some swear by them. But I am pretty darn sure you guys already have a mastery of the functions and when best to use them.
In the meanwhile lets restrain ourselves from doing unwanted collateral damages on branding talks and the likes.
my friend yesterday buy Canon 600D and not 650D cos the sale person say 650D first batch all return back to Canon. don't know what problem.
my friend also sign up for the Canon training.
does all DSLR provide free training?
The lens design, the design of the aperture blades (shape of blades), the number of elements, the optics, the coating, etc etc of the lens overall give the quality of blur. And in some lens system, you don't see aperture blades (mirror lens for example). Thus it is very wrong to say that the number of aperture blades giving better bokeh... sometime they don't.
Finally background blur can be achieve even with not that wide aperture, it all depends on the DOF calculation and yourself to your subject
Oh, thanks for the information! I think abit OT from the topic. HahahaOriginally Posted by rhino123
is bokeh really so important? is that the reason why ppl getting dslr for? (bokeh?)
not sure if Nikon does provide or not. how about reading the sticky threads in this newbie subforum got many useful and not too technical guides to shooting in the advanced modes.
or you could shoot in auto. except that where more exposure required eg very white the camera might get bluffed
But then for me if you want to achieve exactly what you have in mind, how you want it, and you know how to do it via manual, esp when the idiot camera is fooled, then manual mode is the way to go. Means you want to go a step further and a perfectionist, an artist in image manipulation (sun streaks, slow shutter, panning etc). Because it's something P mode can't always give you. If some are happy with P, so be it. Let P=comfort zone.

Can't understand why ppl are so hard up about bokeh......
What's the big deal
