DCR Workshop: How to use your CILC like a pro

by Reads (287)

You’ve entered the world of the Compact Interchangeable Lens Camera, and you are wondering how you can step up your game to take better photos. Well, by getting a camera with a larger sensor and interchangeable lenses, you’ve made a start. But put a professional level DSLR in the hands of someone that doesn’t know how to use it, and you’ll get similar results to a point-and-shoot. Here are some tips to keep in mind and to keep you going as a budding photographer.

Invest into the System
Just because you’ve got a spiffy new camera doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be able to take photos like a pro with it. This is a whole new ballgame. This camera will outlast your older point-and-shoots for much longer. The trade off is that you need to buy more into the system to take better pictures. Many people are swayed by the marketing that X camera that is coming out in two months is light years better than Y camera. Put some better lenses and perhaps an external flash on Y camera, and it will be able to go toe to toe and in some cases even outperform its newer sibling.

This could mean something as small as a better lens, an external flash, a snazzy leather case, or an electronic viewfinder. Get these items and you’ll see that your photography will not only take a step up, but that you’ll be getting more out of the sensor’s potential.
