Once you become seriously interested in photo editing, you will undoubtedly discover how indispensable a Monitor Calibrator (also called colorimeter) can be to your work. Why? That’s what we will be discussing throughout this article.
The Spyder 5 from Datacolor
Many photographers don’t bother using a monitor calibrator at all. Personally, I think this is mainly due to a lack of information on the subject. In fact, the price of these calibrator has dropped considerably in the last few years, meaning that they are no longer exclusively reserved for photo editing professionals. Let’s take a look at how they work and what they are used for…
If you are interested in digital photography (which is most likely the case if you are reading this article), then you will probably already have heard the term RGB being used. We would like to give a brief explanation of what these 3 letters mean and what importance they have for you as a photographer.
If you have never heard of RGB, simply open a photo in your favorite image editing program and look at the title bar: you will see these three letters somewhere among the text. What does this mean?
Let’s begin with a definition: RGB corresponds to the additive synthesis of the Red, Green, and Blue colors in order to create all of the various color nuances shown by your display.
Most reflex cameras (as well as hybrids) have 4 shooting modes represented by the letters P, S, A and M. What are these modes? What are they used for? How do you use them? Here are some tips that will hopefully give you a better understanding of how to use your camera.
Questions about shooting modes are among the most frequently asked by our novice readers. This is particularly true of those users who have grown accustomed to using compact or bridge cameras are who, as a result, are left completely in the dark when it comes to the apparent complexity of reflex cameras. Here is the essential information you should keep in mind regarding shooting modes.
The Auto mode is your friend (it really is!)
If you find yourself completely at a loss when confronted with your brand new reflex camera’s different shooting modes, fall back on the automatic mode!
The choice of autofocus mode is one of the subjects which appears most often among the readers’ questions. What mode should I choose? Why? Why are my photos blurry?
Here is a description of the main Nikon autofocus modes: AF-S, AF-C and AF-A. Below you will also find a description of the main AF zone detection modes. The Nikon D5600’s AF module is one of the most complex to use.
Have you already mastered the shooting modes, but are still having difficulty with the autofocus modes? Without learning a minimum about the AF module, this is only normal; everything will become clear once you have understood how the AF module works.
Building the ideal equipment of lenses in which you will rely on during your adventure as a photographer can be difficult, not just because of the large number of options and alternatives available, but also because of the diverse amount of technical details, numbers and nomenclatures that they present.
For instance, Nikon offers more than 200 alternatives in its own lens range called Nikkor, which are meant to allow you to transform the picture you visualize in your mind into a real one. Each of these lenses is designed for a particular type of photography.
If you do a web search or directly investigate a little on the manufacturer’s website, you will realize how difficult is for an amateur photographer to build an ideal lens equipment.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 undoubtedly has one of the best cameras on the market this year, and with its improved camera, it is sure to follow the same path as the S7 Edge did when it became the best camera of its moment.
Last year, the iPhone 7 Plus showed us how its portrait mode turned its camera into one of the best ones of the moment. No other brand has this mode, except for Huawei and its dual camera, although the performance of Huawei’s phone is not as good as that of Apple’s device. Today we are testing the best two current phone cameras thanks to a comparison we found.

In this image, we can see that colors are richer and brighter with the S8 camera, while the iPhone 7 Plus has a better color reproduction. In terms of detail, Samsung’s device remarkable performance wins.

I’m surprised with the fact that they have reduced megapixels from 24 to 20 (with the industry’s obsession of showing the highest number on the box). That is compared to the previous model, the Nikon D7200, but we already know that megapixels can be pushed into the background if the sensor offers us professional quality.
Knowing how to choose the material that best suits your needs when it comes to taking pictures is essential. Everyone knows that in photography nothing is cheap, so before buying anything I recommend that you think about whether it’s really something that you need.
Lenses are the most expensive things in photography, sometimes costing even more than the camera itself. That’s why it’s worth being well informed and reading many of the analyses and reviews that can be found on the internet.
