DSLR Cameras are increasingly becoming a type of camera that is in the reach of the average photographer as prices fall and as manufacturers develop more user friendly models. But there are some things you must know before deciding which one you want to buy... So here goes!
One of the most important advantages of DSLR cameras (i.e. semi-professional and professional) is the ability to use different lenses. However deciding on what lens to buy and what lens is suitable for a specific type of photography is a bit difficult. In this article we learn about advantages and main purpose of using specific types of lenses, hoping that we make it easier for you to decide. Let’s have a look at different types of lenses and learn when they are used.
So, you’ve got a fancy new DSLR camera, eh? You’re really excited! It probably cost a small fortune. It’s gotta be good, right? It better be good, right?

On the other hand, as a new DSLR user you may either have a hard time using all the buttons and knobs on your new camera, or you may just not be getting the results you had hoped (and paid!) for.
Well, you’re in luck — DSLR’s are absolutely fantastic pieces of machinery, and they can really help you unleash your creativity on your photos. And — better yet — we've got a brief, no nonsense guide on how to work that fancy device. Now, get your camera out of Auto mode and get ready to learn!
The auto exposure lock (AE-L) function on a D-SLR camera lets you physically lock the exposure reading from anywhere in the scene. You can use it on its own or at the point where you focus the image.
All digital SLR cameras have an auto exposure lock button. When you press the AE-L button, the current exposure settings are fixed (locked) so that they can’t change as you recompose the shot – even if the level of light alters as you aim the camera elsewhere.
