Thread: Greetings Everyone :)

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Greetings Everyone :)

    Hello there,
    Nice to meet you guys, I'm new to this forum.
    I'm 15 this year,I know it's a little young but I've developed a interest on photography,
    that is what leads me to joining this forum
    I hope you guys , seniors out there, would teach me more on photography .

    Erm, I've a few questions ever since I joined the forum.
    firstly, can i ask about the price range of DSLR?
    Cause I've been wanting to have a DSLR but I'm just a student
    and my family ain't that wealthy, so I've to save up by myself
    in order to get one.
    Second, are you able to take a better picture
    using digital camera to DSLR ? I've been
    having a headache trying to cope with my blurish
    digital camera.

    It's not about age. Due to affordability of DSLRs now, a lot of teenagers are picking up this hobby. So do not be concerned whether you're young or old.
    As Kiwira mentioned, it's not about the age!

    As mentioned, if budget is a major concern, buy a 2nd hand dslr. If you are doing it this way, find someone who is experienced with dslr with you when meeting the seller, so that he/she can help and advise u.
    Life is short, so shoot more!

    Hi, welcome! Actually a nicely crafted photo can be taken with any camera. But if the DSLR attracts you and you are on a budget, consider a 2nd hand. Else, i guess you can only save up.

    Keep shooting!

    Welcome to CS As many have mentioned, if you're on tight budget you can try getting a 2nd hand one. They'll work just as fine. Pretty pictures are made by photographers behind the camera, not the camera itself. Enjoy the hobby

    Welcome to CS.
    To start with the last question: Yes, you are able to shoot better pictures with a DSLR - but: This is not an instant thing. It also requires learning to manage the camera. Bluntly: the camera cannot read your mind, you need to 'tell' the camera what to do and you need to learn to understand the camera output. This way you can take better pictures. To a certain extend you can do this also with non-DSLR cameras, but there are limitations.
    For prices and other details please have a thorough look at the entire forum. Many people have asked many questions already, many times they have been answered. I'm sure you will find your answers among them. Sometimes you need to dig a bit, but it's worth. Don't expect the forum to be an information counter, but rather a library
    If you are on budget I'd recommend getting 2nd hand equipment. The market value of 2nd hand DSLR drops fast but the usability of the cameras is unaffected. They will still serve you well. There no need for acquiring the newest model or technology for taking pictures.

    Welcome young man~!

    I would say a dSLR will be capable of taking better pictures compared with a PnS if operated correctly.

    Personally, I reckon that $1.5k should be able to get a decent 2nd-hand entry-level dSLR, including tripod, lens filter, bag and dry cabinet.

    Hi welcome to CS. Many prices of 2nd hand cams are cheap. U can consider, but do some research first. Cheers.

    actually many people misunderstood by thinking that dslr can take better pictures than digital compact cameras.

    the most important thing in photography is the person behind the camera.. and maybe a little bit becoz of the equipment and luck.

    Don't mind if i ask , but, is there any guide to photography in this forums?
    like teaching you how to take good photos with like marco and stuffs.
    If I said anything wrong , please do forgive me .

    Shops usually don't (unless it's those cash converters). Here we have the Buy & Sell section.

    It would be a bad forum if there weren't any of such guides, right? I suggest you take your time to carefully and thoroughly browse through the forum, try to comprehend the structure. Common starting points:
    Newbies Corner - Do pay attention to sticky threads (yellow background)
    Within the same section: Articles and Guides - a comprehensive collection of various postings, aiming to summarize common knowledge in a structured way.
    Digital Darkroom - all about post processing
    Clubsnap Galleries - pictures and discussions about various special topics.
    Furthermore: Night Photography,
