That Rare Camera Shot  -  How to Avoid Misses

Setting for inferior equipment means inferior picture quality...if you even manage to capture the subject! What do I mean? When shooting high-speed action, you've got to be on your toes.

Extremely rare opportunities evade the unweary with point & shoot cameras far too often.

With today's camera equipment, captures are far easier than ever due to the evolved technologically in the past few years. The processes of editing and publishing the images have equally improved.

Unfortunately there are products out there which, in spite of our modern age, are not worth the packaging they come in. Once you have good equipment, the rest of this article will give tips on getting the most out of it.

Two Ways to Increase the Likelihood of Getting That Rare Camera Shot!

Most modern digital cameras come with video mode. Earlier digital cameras had sequential shooting capabilities, and they were helpful, but usually took shots no less than one-second intervals. This is far too inadequate for high-speed movements. This method is now dated (or has evolved into the much higher performing burst mode.

  1. Capture It Using Video
  2. Capture It Using Burst Mode

Most cameras today, including cellular phones and other hand-held devices with cameras come with video capabilities. They range from very poor, low resolution to excellent quality with hd and high resolution settings. However, most cameras do not come with shutter speed controls in video.

Video provides an assurance that the subject will not be missed as stills can be extracted fom the video. Albeit, often with video, motion blur is inconspicuous...until you go to extracting stills. Here's an even better method...

Often, higher-quality camera/camcorder outfits come with burst mode. Until fairly recent years, these settings were not available on consumer-grade equipment, only on industrial-grade equipment.

Burst Mode is the action of shooting a specific number of pics in a very short time, and is usually user-defined in the better quality. The beauty of burst mode is that it works with shutter speeds, reducing the blurring problem. Artificial lighting is required in dark conditions to increase the shutter speed.

Be Sure Your Camera Is Designed for Extreme Action

It is imperative for any serious photogapher to invest in quality equipment. It will pay off in the long run and last much longer in tough conditions. Quality really pays off. You can easily tell quality from what other customers say, positive reviews and comments are a great indicator of any popular product.

Reports of great customer service from the manufacturer and customer experience usually indicate a great product!

What kind of mounts and other hardware is available for the camera? What do other customers say about using these accessories? The best cameras come with a wide variety of choices...either different camera outfits for different applications...or a single camera with fittings and accessories which make the single unit highly versatile. There are great cameras out there for consumer use that have professional qualities and have good price tags.

Beware that some cameras look professional but are not. They are just shiny toys!

To Recap:

  • Shop around and make sure the camera outfit meets your expectations.
  • For high action photograph, it is important to select one that has a healthy line of high quality accessories (preferably made by the same company that made the camera.)
  • The outfit should be of professional quality in both precision and output.
  • Be sure to check consumer feedback and reviews as this is almost always a reliable barometer that you will be satisfied with your new camera outfit.
  • Insist on quality and do not settle for less, as this will show in the longrun!

Today you can get camera outfits that redefine the sports photographic experience. I hope this article helps you make informed decisions in your photographic needs!
