One Response to The Definitive Simon Stafford General Photographic Techniques Seminar

  1. Anderson says:

    The DSLR’s are not about point and shoot, and you shouldn’t even coparme them to compacts. With a compact you can print the usual 10*15cm photos, not Panels like 2*3m as you can do it with a DSLR. The size of the sensor does matter or you think that the medium format cameras are as good as the compact ones to? If you just want to take some family trip pictures, the compacts are better, but with a DSLR you can produce art. The D300 is one? of the best cameras I’ve tried ever, if not the best.
