Is this sounding familiar?
- You spend time researching the right camera for you - Time taken = 1 week to 6 months.
- You spend time finding the cheapest deal - Time taken = 2 days to 3 months.
- You finally take the plunge and go and buy or purchase online your ideal camera - Time taken = 1 to 5 days.
- Finally you are in possession of this remarkable piece of equipment. The aesthetics and feel of the packaging make you realise how special this item is and you spend a little time reading the content on the box, anticipation and excitement grows.
- At home, you carefully open the box and already you are bewildered by its contents; straps, cables, CDs plastic things and manuals alongside the camera and lens stare at you. You carefully remove them and line them up on the table.
- Reading the manual you learn how to charge the battery, insert the memory card, attach the strap and attach the lens.
- The battery is charged and you insert it into the camera.
- You check the camera over before switching it on; you can’t help but notice the vast array of switches knobs and dials, admitting also it took a moment to find the on switch!
- Flicking the switch you make the camera come to life, the lens does a funny turn, LEDs start blinking and you notice a vast array of display symbols, not just on the camera, but also in the viewfinder, resembling the the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
Very often after this the main dial is switched to full automatic and then left there with only the occasional play with the other functions. Sometimes the shots taken are disappointing; pictures with strange orange or blue hues, off focus pictures, darkened subjects in bright daylight, blurred action shots and all the time you grow increasingly frustrated because you know what you want yet can’t quite capture it. Because of this the camera is then resigned to the cupboard under the stairs gathering dust, during which the compact camera is busy “because it is easier to use!”
What a terrible shame, you possess an incredible and powerful piece of creative machinery. The time, effort and cost you have invested into such clever equipment should be further realised by getting the most out of it, thus having a greater ability to take the shots you so desire.
