Canon Eos 30d Review
The Canon EOS 30D SLR Digital Camera has upped the number of sequential frames that you can capture in continuous-shooting mode to 30 JPEG or 11 raw shots, from 23 or 6. It is important to mention though, that this is at 5 frames per second. The 30D has a real spot meter, through the 3.5 % metering circle. An advantage Canon has added to this model is the ability to set ISO sensitivity in 1/3-stop increments. The larger 2.5 inch LCD monitor now offers a wider viewing angle than that of the 1.8 inch model on the lower class 20D. This comes in handy for reviewing shots with your friends or family members.

Nikon L20 review
A prevalent instance to demonstrate the above scenarios is when you get the under error concept although attempting to click on a photograph from Nikon Coolpix L20:
“Picture are unable to be saved”
Macroscopic photography offers photographers a unique view of the world to explore with an unlimited amount of color, texture and physical architecture. Macro photography is a magnified photography, which is used to produce an image which is larger in the film plane (or digital sensor) than in real life.
Types of Camera
Presently there are two main types of cameras available: point and shoot digital cameras and digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.
Macro Photography on a Point & Shoot
Point and shoot digital cameras are a line of cameras popular with beginner photographers and suitable for everyday photography.
Attach camera to tripod: Focusing on an image close up can be difficult with certain models of camera. Any movement can bring the photograph out of focus. For best results, attach the camera to a tripod.
Select Macro Mode: Macro mode is typically a little flower in the shooting modes. When selected, it causes the camera to focus on an object closer to the lens than normal. In addition, macro mode will also increase the size of the aperture, bringing the subject into closer focus while leaving the background in the distance.
Zoom-In on the Image: Using the camera’s zoom feature, bring the image into focus on the view screen.
Set Flash (or not): Use of a flash with a point and shoot camera is purely personal preference. Macro photographs require a certain amount of light to remain clear and in focus. Unfortunately, it is difficult to control the flash on a point and shoot. For professional results, wait for a bright day with lots of natural light to take the photograph.
Take the Shot: Once shot has been lined up and in focus, double check the view screen and take the shot.
Try experimenting with various settings, different apertures and compositions to see what works best.
Macro Photography on a DSLR Camera
While point and shoot digital cameras may possess excellent macro capabilities, for optimal results a DSLR camera will generally out perform point and shoot. The reason for this is because DSLR cameras allow various attachments for special purpose macro lenses.
Attach Appropriate Lens: Attach the appropriate lens following the manufacturer’s recommendations. Some cameras have special accessories specifically with macro photography, these attachments allow the photographer to enlarge the subject and/or decrease the minimum focal length.
Set Camera to Macro Mode & Select Aperture: Place the camera in macro mode, oftentimes some models of cameras will not allow any other adjustments without this mode being selected. After the camera has been placed in macro mode, select a small aperture (it’s a big number) for a large depth of the field which places everything into focus, or a large aperture (small number) if focusing on the main subject. In most situations, it is best to select a shallow depth of field, therefore, select the largest aperture possible.
Set Flash: Having some artificial light in macro photography is important. Fortunately most cameras come with their own built-in light meter. Choosing a time of day when there is plenty of natural light is the cheapest way of producing high quality photographs. Alternatively, the harsh light of the flash can be diffused by applying tissue paper or cello tape over the flash. Another more expensive option would be to invest in a reflector.
Place Subject into Focus: If the camera allows manual focus, select this option and focus the image manually.
Take the Shot: Once shot has been lined up and in focus, double check the view screen or through the eyepiece and take the shot.
