    Tips for Taking Stunning Photos During Your Summer Vacation

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Whether you're getting ready to embark on a cross-country road trip or you're finally taking that dream vacation to Europe, don't forget to pack your favorite Leica or Nikon camera equipment for your travels. When combined with just the right lighting and the proper shooting techniques, your equipment can help you document your journey so that you can look back on it for years to come. Here are our top tips for taking stunning photos during your summer vacation.

    Go for the Group Shot

    While many people love taking shots of coastlines, trees, and local architecture, there's something even more special about capturing memorable moments between friends and family members during a vacation. Take the opportunity to shoot a group photo with your travel mates throughout your excursion, and vary your style by photographing both staged and candid shots. 

    Explore Various Apps

    One of the most fun and creative ways to spice up your photos is to modify them using an app. Photography apps allow you to take any basic photo and enhance its features, such as the color intensity or brightness. They can also completely manipulate a photo by changing its perspective or framing it.

    Turn to Nature for Inspiration

    If you're finding it difficult to find inspiration for travel shots using your Nikon camera or your Leica equipment, then grab a pair of binoculars and set your sights on the surrounding nature. Observe for local wildlife or check guidebooks for particularly stunning scenery in the area. Locals are also a great resource for tips on awe-inspiring nature that will photograph well.

    Before embarking on your summer travels, stop in to Camera Land NYC to find out how we can help you achieve the best shots while vacationing. We can also turn your pictures into photo prints upon your return home. Call (646) 789-4830 to learn more about our camera equipment and photo services.

    Deal of the Day: S&B Exos 1-8x24 LM - FD7 Reticle Riflescope #780-811-708

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is on a never mounted open box S&B Exos 1-8x24 LM - FD7 Reticle Riflescope #780-811-708. New this scope is $3399.99 and we have a few never mounted open box units for only $2499.99

    On the latest Exos line scope the reticle and the FlashDot illumination are located in the second focal plane, therefore remaining constant when switching the magnification. The special feature of this scope is its CC mode in which it may be used parallax-free as a red dot sight with a magnification of 1,0. Its rather big field of vision (35.3 m/100 m) makes the scope your ideal choice for the quick shot on fleeting game. With more training the hunter may, when aiming at a short distance, leave both eyes open, thus always remaining on top of things. The scope will be an ideal support for the hunter during driven wild boar or buffalo hunting or when hunting other game which is well able to defend itself. 

    Exit Pupil Diameter (mm): 9.6 - 3.0
    Twilight Factor: 3.9 - 13.9
    Field of View m/100 (m): 35.3 - 4.9
    Eye Relief Distance (mm):
    Basic Click System: 1cm / 100m
    Total Adjustment Range: 1m / 100m
    Weight (g): 550gm

    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


    Understanding the Importance of Your Camera's Aperture

    Last updated 3 months ago

    When it comes to achieving the perfect shot, the trick is to understand the ins and outs of your camera. Whether you shoot with a brand new Nikon camera or a vintage Leica, your device offers a variety of settings and components that can be used to create a seemingly infinite number of shooting styles. Here is a guide to understanding the importance of one of those components: your camera's aperture.

    The Purpose of an Aperture

    The easiest way to think of an aperture and to understand its purpose is to liken your camera to the human eye. Just like the eye, a camera features a diaphragm that contracts and expands to manipulate light intake. The diameter of the contraction or expansion is referred to as the aperture, which acts exactly like the eye's pupil as it lets light flood into the lens.

    Changing Aperture Settings

    Different angles, settings, and shots call for different aperture settings. This means you need to know how to appropriately configure your lens to select the right aperture mode. Lens aperture sizes, known in the world of photography as “f-stops,” are written as fractions that represent a lens' focal length by the diameter of the aperture. A modern Nikon camera or Leica from Camera Land will allow you to simply select the f-stop required and automatically alter shutter speed to create fluid exposure.

    An Aperture's Impact on Focus

    Since aperture size dictates the amount of light taken in, this vital camera component also has an impact on the degree to which an image is in focus. F-stop settings can be altered so that just one part of the shot is in focus while the surrounding scene blurs into the background. Other settings see to it that an entire shot is clear and in focus, from the foreground all the way to objects farther in the distance.

    For even more information on aperture and other camera settings, consult with the camera experts at Camera Land NYC. In addition to offering top quality cameras from Nikon, Leica, and Fuji, we are also your go-to store for crossfire riflescopes and binoculars. Call us at (646) 789-4830 to learn more about the products we carry and the photography services we offer.
