10 Must Know Tips Before Buying Your First DSLR Camera

Have you made up your mind for buying your first DSLR camera? If yes, then you must have gathered some knowledge about it. In this post from maxbangla.com, you will find some more tips before buying your new DSLR. So, let’s start the discussion without any further delay.

1. Do you really need it?

The first question should be this. There is a common belief that buying a DSLR means you will become a good photographer. This idea is totally wrong. You need years of experience to become a good photographer. There are many point and shoot cameras in the market, which are relatively easier to operate and take photos. DSLR camera also has an automatic mood. But, you will find it difficult to take the exact photos you want to take with this mode. You must learn to take photos in the manual mode. This requires patience and a learning mind. If you don’t have time for learning these settings, you may find it better to buy the point and shoot camera instead of DSLR.

2. Select a common brand:

There are many brands of DSLR camera in the market. But, most of them are not popular. Only Canon, Nikon, and Sony are widely known for their DSLR cameras. They also sell a wide range of DSLR Lenses. So, you should buy a camera from these brands.

3. Fix your budget:

A DSLR camera is composed of the camera body and the lens. You can use different types of lenses from the same brand on your camera. So, you should fix your budget at first, then fix the amount of money you want to spend on the camera body. The rest of the money will be needed to buy different types of lenses.

4. Search internet: The internet will give you a great idea about anything. So, you will get a clear idea about which camera is better and which is not, by searching the internet will give you a great idea about anything. So, you will get a clear idea about which camera is better and which is not, by searching the internet. YouTube will offer you a lot of videos about the DSLR reviews. Take your time to watch as many videos as you can. Ask your relatives who use a DSLR camera or who know about it better than you. Then decide about buying the desired model.

5. Know what you want:

Sometimes people ask me to choose between two models of DSLR. Obviously, I recommend them the better one. But, they don’t mention their needs. This is important to know your needs, in order to meet your requirements. If you want to take selfies with it, then you will need a DSLR with a flip out screen. Otherwise, you will not be able to take selfies with it. Similarly, some need a bigger display or some special buttons or DSLR with WiFi connectivity. They must look for these features before buying any DSLR camera.

6. Take an expert with you:

Don’t buy your first DSLR camera alone. You must take a person who knows about it to explain anything you don’t know about it during and after buying it. The same tip is applicable for buying any new gadget or electronic devices.

7. Get the accessories: Buying the DSLR camera does not mean that you will start taking photos right away. You should buy the accessories of it before you feel complete. These include lenses, camera bag, memory card, tripod, Speedlight, etc.

9. Charging the battery:

Don’t start taking photos without fully charging the camera battery. It will reduce battery life. So, charge the battery until it shows the Full sign and then starts capturing the photos. Keep the battery removed if you are not taking photos for a week or more.

10. Cleaning the camera:

It is obvious that the DSLR will experience some dust when you will head for landscape photography. So, it is important to clean the camera and lenses. Use soft clean clothes to clean these. Otherwise, there will be scratches and dirty marks on the glasses, which will reduce the photo quality gradually.

    • Both brands are good. It’s not possible to rank one brand ahead of the other. The difference is so minimal. Some models of Canon are better than some of Nikon, and some models of Nikon are better than some of Canon. So, the comparison is made between models, not between these two brands.
