Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I am a sigma lens and filter user for my Nikon D60. I haven't used filters before and have acquired a 72 mm DG Filter. I would like to know how to use it properly, Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. thank you in advance.



Answers :

It depends on the filter.\012\012\012

If it's a DG UV (ultraviolet) filter, it cuts reduces the ultraviolet light reaching the lens. UV light scattered from particles in the air is what produces much of the haze that can obscure distant objects like mountains. Other than that, it has little visible effect. Some photographers like to keep an UV filter on their lenses at all times, on the premise that it's cheaper to replace the filter instead of the lens should it bash into something.

If it's a DG Circular Polarizer filter, that's something completely different. A polarizer cuts light waves bouncing in a particular orientation. You get this kind of light in reflections from glass and water, for example. Try looking out a window through the filter. By turning the filter (it has a rotating ring on it), you should be able to accentuate or reduce reflections and glare. It can also darken the sky, reduce reflections from leaves, and has other effects. The best way to explore its uses is to go out on a relatively sunny day and look at things through it. Try taking pictures with and without the filter and compare the results.

Since the D60 meters through the lens, you don't have to do anything to compensate for either filter. Just put it on and take the picture.

Internal Memory?? Hello, I just received an E-500 as a gift and would like to know if you must use a memory card with it.  My previous camera was a Kodak and you could either use the internal memory or a card. Which card do you all suggest i purchase? Is there one that is better than the other?

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?


Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
