    Using Windows to Light Your Photographs

    Last updated 3 months ago

    When it comes to portrait photography, you need to find good light sources to illuminate the subject. A window is the best and easiest light source you can use in your home without setting up large, expensive studio lights. When positioning your subject near a window, wait until there’s not directly sunlight coming through the window. You should use a reflector to bounce some of the light back onto the subject so that the photograph doesn’t become too dark. For more tips about using windows to light your photographs, watch this video clip. 

    Whether you need lights, reflectors, tripods, or lenses, you can find all of the camera accessories you need at Camera Land NYC. We are one of the largest camera stores in NYC, and our inventory of cameras and camera accessories reflects this fact. Browse all of our products online, or call us at (646) 789-4830 if you have any questions.

    Deal of the Day: Demo and Open Box Opportunities

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is a review of Demo & Open Box opportunities.

    We get a fairly regular delivery from all the manufacturers of demos, open box & salesman sample units. We also have demo day events here in the store that we open new product for. After the event we feel it would not be right to pack these handled units back up and put them back into new inventory so they get put with the discounted demo products. These units are a great way to get into the optic you've been wanting while saving a great deal.

    We have created a separate section, listed by manufacturer, for the demos we have available:






    Schmidt & Bender 






    More demo product is arriving all the time so please check back if what you're looking for is not here or just call Doug or Neil @ 212-753-5128.

    BTW, a portion of every Leica, Leupold, Minox, Meopta, Steiner, Vortex & Zeiss sale is donated to United Cerebral Palsy

    Please feel free to call Doug or Neil @ 212-753-5128 with any questions or to place an order.

    * These "Deal of the Day" opportunities last as long as we have inventory so if you see this and want this please give a call or check our site.

    Have a great day

    A Guide to Choose the Perfect Camera for Your Needs

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Everyone could use a new camera, but different cameras are right for different people. You don’t need to shoot family photographs with a high-end digital camera, nor should you attempt to take professional photos with a point-and-shoot camera. Obviously, the right camera for you depends on a number of different factors. Before you visit a camera shop, look through these tips to determine which camera is perfect for your needs. 

    Establish a Budget

    Cameras range from around a hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. To help narrow your search, start by establishing a realistic budget. If you can only afford to spend a couple hundred dollars on a new camera, a point-and-shoot is your best bet. If money isn’t an option and you want the best camera, shop for a D-SLR.  

    Examine Your Lifestyle

    Your lifestyle can be a big indicator as to which camera is right for you. For example, if you love the great outdoors, you should look for a camera that takes exquisite nature shots. If you love people watching downtown, a quick-shooting D-SLR will help you capture all of the most memorable moments. Talk about your lifestyle with your camera salesman to determine which camera (or least which type of camera) is best for you.

    Consider Your Skills

    If you know your way around a camera, you can probably pick up any model and start shooting away. However, if you are not so tech savvy, you may struggle with a high-end D-SLR. Point-and-shoot digital cameras are much easier to use, as you simple point at an object and press the shutter button.

    No matter what type of camera is right for you, you can find it right here at Camera Land NYC. From compact point-and-shoot cameras to high-end D-SLRs, we have the best selection of new cameras to choose from.
