5 Handy Digital Camera Tips you Should Know

Last Updated :

Clicking pictures with digital cameras is lot more easier than what it was with film cameras. Though they bear a high cost, but clicking pictures is cheap. You can click as many pictures as you want, and delete all the unwanted pictures at no additional cost. Everyone today with a digital camera in hand has become a photographer. However, not all of us are well aware of the camera tips and tricks.

If you are looking for some camera tips and photography advice to improve your photography skills, you are at right place. Here are some tips from the experts who have been clicking pictures since many years. In the section below, we will cover some digital camera tips that you should know to begin with.

1. Reset cameras settings, when you mess-up

In the beginning, there will come many situations where you may feel that you messed-up with your camera settings. Or there may come a situation where you do not experiment with your camera settings so that you don't mess it up. Don't worry. In both the situations you can always reset your camera settings to get it back to what it was.

2. Format don't erase:

It is always advisable that you format the memory card in your camera. Formatting makes sure that your memory card is wiped clean and is ready for rewrite. Whereas, erasing data on the memory card doesn't rewrites any pertinent camera information. So always format your cards to minimize the risk of any data corruption.

3. Regular Firmware update:

Firmware refers to your in-camera software which is used for processing images. The firmware sets the whole range of parameters for controlling what features are available to you. Check your manufacturer’s website regularly to ensure your digital camera’s firmware is as up to date as possible.

4. Change camera Batteries:

The camera batteries are like lifeline of your camera. Make sure they are fully charged before you out and shoot. If you use your camera extensively, make sure you carry an additional pair of batteries just in case your first pair dies or is exhausted.

5. Check the image size:

You don't always need the maximum resolution for your pictures, do you? Sometimes a smaller image size might be all you need. Reducing the resolution doesn't  only means more images, but also ensures a faster shooting rate, too.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
