    Selecting the Best Camera for Traveling

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Are you preparing to go on a vacation to an exotic locale? Do you have your bags packed for a weekend adventure with family and friends? No matter where you're headed in the near future, it's important that you bring along the perfect camera to document your journey. Here’s a guide to selecting the best camera for traveling.

    Consider Your Baggage Allowance

    The first thing to consider when selecting the best camera for your traveling plans is how much space you will have in your luggage. If you don't mind carrying an extra camera case around as you explore your destination, then it might be a good idea to purchase a high quality DSLR camera by Nikon or Canon. If, however, you are short on space or prefer something that fits in your pocket, then stick with a smaller digital model.

    Think About Your Subject Matter

    Another consideration to make when purchasing a new camera for your trip is the subject matter that you will be shooting. Far away objects such as birds and wildlife will require a camera with a powerful zoom that allows you to capture your shot while maintaining a focus. If you will be shooting portraits of friends and travel mates, then focus instead on a camera with a quality lens.

    Stick to Your Budget

    No matter what your subject matter is or your camera size preference, it's important to also research different price points for a camera to bring on your travels. If you're trying to save some money for the vacation itself, then talk to the Camera Land NY staff about getting the best bang for your buck. Canon and Leica offer a wide range of products within different price points for your convenience.

    Camera Land NY can also help you prepare for your vacation thanks to our passport photo services as well as our supply of practical accessories like binoculars. No matter what style of camera you're in the market for, our knowledgeable staff will see to it that your needs are met. Call (212) 753-5128 to learn more about our selection cameras and camera accessories.

    Minox ZV Riflescope Pre-Black Friday Blowout!

    Last updated 2 months ago

    As I am sure you are aware by now, last year we established a "Deal of the Day" section on our site. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol.
    We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome.

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is on a couple of great Minox riflescopes.

    There were a bunch of different trade shows all year all around the world. We just got in these 6 models that were from all these trade shows. None were ever mounted. They are complete in the original packaging and have the full warranty. This is a great opportunity to get basically a brand new scope at a very reduced price.

    Open Box Special:

    All ZV 3 riflescopes are designed and engineered in Germany, and feature a 1-inch aircraft grade anodized aluminum, mono-tube design. They are nitrogen filled and fully waterproof. The fully multi-coated lenses (with M* coatings) offer rich and detailed images and the smooth mechanics have these riflescopes performing well.

    Studio Photography Tips

    Last updated 2 months ago

    When shooting photographs in a studio, there are a number of important variables to consider in order to capture the perfect shot. As the photographer in this helpful video shares with us, one of the first tips of studio photography is to establish control over your show by switching the camera's settings to manual from automatic. On manual control, you can vary the ISO, shutter speed, and exposure based on your specific needs. Another important tip to consider is to match your ISO setting to the lighting that you have arranged in the studio. Be sure to also adjust your aperture to accommodate the lighting so that you don't produce shots that are over-exposed.  

    Are you ready to learn more about taking your photography skills to the next level? If so, then be sure to visit Camera Land NY today. Call (212) 753-5128 to learn more about our inventory of digital cameras, lenses, and binoculars. We also offer photography services, including printing and camera tutorials.
