  • KaosNoKamisama says:

    You don’t need to upgrade to a full frame camera, that’s BS, if you ask
    me.It can be the best option, but depends on what you want. If what you are
    looking for are more focus points, faster shutter, better performance,
    better speed and low-light performance, but want to keep your lenses or
    simply got used (or like) the DX format, look for a D7000. AND, everthing
    DX is usually cheaper than full frame. If you’re looking for a shallower
    depth field and way better dark performance, go full frame.

    Great lesson for a beginer like me

  • Ze Pres says:

    Thanks to Bob and Nikon. Super job!

  • George Kaplan says:

    Go with either Nikon or Canon. They are both equally good. See which brand
    has the cheapest model at the moment and buy that one, doesn’t matter if
    it’s N’ or C’.

  • Daniel Kevorkian says:

    Mr Krist has written some of the most useful manuals I have ever read, but
    … gosh … his photography is so reassuringly old and glossy.

  • TomZentra says:

    Yes, when this old video was released Bob shot JPEG. So did many others
    years ago for various reasons. Since then he stated that he shoots RAW.
    Years ago he didn’t want to do much post processing. He preferred the old
    style of shooting to “get it right the first time”. Since then he realized
    this approach is more myth than reality.

  • Sydney Portraits says:

    Thanks, guys! I’m really glad you’ve got something from it. That’s right,
    Pascale – not too much post-processing. A bit of colour correction and
    sometimes VSCO film effects for Lightroom (recommended).

    GREAT video, thank you!!! Perfectly explained with great examples. I’ve had
    a camera and 4 lenses given to me a couple years back, I use it all the
    time and LOVE it, but never really bothered to REALLY learn about my camera
    and lenses till recently. What I just wanted clarification on is the range
    of the lenses. I have noticed watching a few videos the lenses used in the
    videos have a significantly smaller range mine, for example my ‘go to lens’
    is 18-180mm it just seems handy to have a great range but I don’t know if
    there is a downside to it. Is it considered wide angle? I also have a
    14-45mm would that be more of a fish eye lens? If I wanted to shoot wide
    angle which would I use or would I not use either? Clearly I am very
    amateur but am really trying to understand my lenses. the other 2 lenses
    are 40-150mm and 140-600mm. could you possibly briefly tell me about these
    lenses so I can better understand them? thanks again for the video!

  • Dimitar Zlatarev says:

    15MM FISHEYE considered ? I might be wrong but I assume he’s talking about
    full frame. There’s lenses like sigma 10-20mm or others as well which are
    not considered fisheye and doesnt look like fisheye ?

  • José Marqués says:

    A very good video. Thank you very much ! I have been looking for good
    explanation about wide angle lenses and this is the best I’ve found.

  • Dusan Semrov says:

    Excellent video, clear and helpful information all the way!

  • Willo Smith says:

    This video was a great help to me. I had watched about 30 videos before
    watching this one & I must say that this one gave me the know how that I
    was looking for …. Thank you! … Great info!!! … Just what I needed!!!

  • Dave Browne says:

    One of the most useful/educational photography videos I have seen in ages.

  • Devin Lee says:

    Great video. I’m shooting real estate in the coming days and wasn’t sure
    with what lens to go with. Thanks!

  • video dslr tutorial says:

    Excellent video! My first wide angle lens will be delivered in a few days.
    This video was a good preparation for it :)

  • Savannahali says:

    Great videos! I’d love to see a video series just on shooting interiors. 

  • Tom Lee says:

    Helpful video thanks. I’ve had a 16-35 for some time but struggle to get
    anything I like with it. Useful tips here may make me try again. Thanks!


    I got stacks out of that.
    Great Video, many thanks. And keep ’em coning!!

  • grufiog says:

    At 8:00 and 8:20 how come that you shoot at 1/25 shutter speed and the
    subject looks sharp and not blurry at all? Pretty good! 

  • icyremy says:

    Thank you. This clip is very useful for me because I have faced the same
    problem with big arms in the edge of the photo.
