Concept camera/Stuff you need to know

Posted 04-06-2010 at 12:23 AM by Nasturtium

Concept camera
As I try to teach myself how to use the SLR I keep finding myself thinking 'wouldn't it be nice' if-
  • the viewfinder was on the bottom
  • there was a tiny built-in tripod that folded out
  • that there was a slider that chose a wheel for; ISO, aperture or shutterspeed
  • there was a notch where I could stabilize the camera on the bridge of my nose
Then I wouldn't cover the LCD with nose grease, I wouldn't have to deal with pretentious inscrutable names for settings and maybe I could shoot crisper images

Stuff you need to know;
I've been taking some plug-ins out for test drives in a quest to find a way to duplicate the 'blush' setting in Virtual Photographer since it isn't available on the mac.

And I realized that if you know how to correct a color cast, correct an exposure, enhance and decrease detail - then you can create an artistic color cast, and an artistic exposure and an artistic level of detail. Which is pretty much what those plugins do.

    two more things on the 'wish list' for cameras-
    how about a little computer chip on the removable lens that contains the depth of focus calculation at different settings?
    how about using the built in flash trigger on a Canon 40D to use the flash in a Powershot as a slave?

    "Then I wouldn't cover the LCD with nose grease"

    Well, A hassy would fix that

    But it would also fix the weight of your wallet...
